Pope asks God why he 'tolerated' Holocaust (tags)

I always thought god approved of the Holocaust? Or since god doesnt exist i guess i would say that the pope approved of the Holocaust.

A bloody day in Iraq (tags)

"... the horror, the horror." At the Iraqi town of Fallujah resistance fighters ambushed a "coalition forces" SUV with rocket propelled grenades and small arms, killing the four riding in the vehicle. After the guerillas struck and disappeared, the people of Fallujah came out to inspect the aftermath of the attack. The passengers obviously worked for the "coalition forces"... on their bodies were found dog tags, weapons, an American passport and a U.S. Department of Defense identification card. The gathered crowd then pulled the charred corpses from the vehicle... beat and mutilated them, dragged them to the nearest bridge over the Euphrates River, and hung them from it. The masses chanted "Fallujah is the graveyard of Americans!" We can still hear Vice President Dick Cheney's words ringing in our ears, "We'll be greeted as liberators." (AP photo/Sabah Arar)

A bomb wounded Iraqi Child, 1 year later. (tags)

Ibtihal Jassem was 9 years old when U.S. bombs came crashing into her neighborhood in Basra, Iraq. Those bombs killed her mother, father, three brothers and two sisters... and also dozens of neighbors. Ibtihal was found in the rubble... her right leg almost severed. The grisly Associated Press photo of Ibtihal being carried to a hospital by her uncle, her shattered leg dangling horrifically from her bloody clothes, was flashed all across the world. I remember posting that photograph to several Indymedia websites. Disbelieving war supporters hurled the accusation that the photo was a fraud... a "photoshop job" created by "unpatriotic" Americans. One year later Ibtihal Jassem struggles to adjust as a victim of war in a country that is occupied and in shambles. In the photo, the girl as she was 1 year ago (left), and as she is today (right). Mohammed Chiyad attaches a plastic leg onto his 10-year-old granddaughter Ibtihal, outside her home in Basra. Born deaf and mute, Jassem has lived with her grandparents since the March 22 2003 U.S. bombing of the Mshan neighborhood. (AP Photo /Hussein Malla)

That last comment makes absolutely no sense.
