Washington Post Firing Blanks

Best comment on a story debunked a week ago by Confederate Yankee:

Hmmm.....ammunition shortage?

Not in Iraq, apparently, if we're just throwing bullets, cartridge and all, at the enemy.

The , "point, " here is of course, spent casing HAVE NO POINT ! How dumb do they think people are in pushing their liberal propaganda against the war?

Sad thing is there are a large number of idiots who will believe this story because it has an anti-war message!

Haha...Bob Owens of Confederate Yankee says the Washington Post story no longer appears on the website frontpage, let alone their featured story.

Gosh Word, I missed that one. Imagine throwing your ammunition at the enemy? I think that's why the libs have such a hard getting a grip on what's really going on. I mean come on... it doesn't take a ballistician or armorer to figure out that the bullets are still in the unfired casing in that photo. At least they could have attempted a photoshop on it and blamed someone else. Sheesh!!

Looks like she's holding 5.56 Nato. That stuff is short on supply (execept at my house) and prices are very high here in the US because they're just throwing that stuff around over there:-)

Spread the word on your site! Buy a copy! Support our troops!

A U.S. soldier recommended for the medal of honor has written a book at the war in Iraq. It is a first-hand account of the 2004 Battle of Fallujah. The American soldiers eventually won the block-by-block battle, but the cost was great. David Bellavia conveys
the intense experiences of combat, and presents well-drawn portraits of his fellow soldiers, as he captures their heroism and sacrifice.

I have read this book and it's even better than Blackhawk Down!

You can order it now:

"House To House" David Bellavia

I read about this over at Confederate Yankee.

The photographer has been removed from service as it seems he favors this type of photography.

Just so everyone is clear, there are two different stories in this post. I just thought I'd kill two birds with one thrown bullet.

Yeah Wordsmith, I loved THAT one -- nothing like a nice pristine bullet, so -- yeah -- SOMEONE must be throwing bullets. But evidently not hard enough.
