The Iraqi Ambassador to the UN, a supporter of the USA, has accused US marines of cold-bloodedly killing his unarmed nephew in a raid on the home of the envoy’s cousin.
US military officials mouthed its usual BS about taking such reports seriously and promised an investigation, but I bet you nothing will happen. No US soldier will be found guilty. Even the Australians, strong American allies, have found that out to their utter disgust.
Thus, whenever the US military reported that they killed or wounded several hundreds of suspect, I have my doubts. Once on TV I saw the aftermath of such a US strike near the Syrian border consisted of wounded Iraqi children – probably the notorious “terrorist suspects” the US military reported that they had bravely encountered and beaten.
