US troops kill merchant defending shop against looters

Fri Apr 11,11:52 AM ET

BAGHDAD (AFP) - US soldiers shot and killed a Baghdad shopkeeper who was defending his shop with a Kalashnikov assault rifle against looters, neighbours told an AFP photographer.

The merchant pulled his rifle on the thieves when they began sacking the shop, neighbours said.

When US soldiers approached the area, the looters told them that the shopkeeper was a member of Saddam Hussein (news - web sites)'s Fedayeen paramilitary force.

The American troops opened fire with heavy machine guns, killing the man, the neighbors said.

The photographer saw the covered body of Mohammad al-Barheini, 25, lying on a shelf of his shop, his head in a bag, on the Al-Rashid commercial street in the capital.

The Unites States Army, in an official memorandum to all of it's forces in Iraq, stated:
Congratulations, boys and girls! And when we get back home we're gonna throw the biggest party this world has ever seen!
Keep your ammunitions at the ready, because we're gonna tear the heads off of those liberal pinko panty-waists mooching off of the government with their food stamps and any other kind of free hand-out they expect.

There they go, fantasizing about hippies again.

Is there any kind of medication that can bring them out of their delusions?
