Imperial Terror in Iraq

Earlier this month John Kerry accused U.S. servicemen of "going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children." This is doubtless an example:

U.S. Imperial storm troops raided a Baghdad home in early December.

As the parents of an infant girl nervously watched the soldiers search their modest home, the baby's unflinching grandmother thrust the little girl at the Americans, showing them the purple pouch protruding from her back.

The child, barely three months old, was born with spina bifida, a birth defect in which the spinal column fails to completely close. Iraqi doctors had told her parents she would live only 45 days, but she was still clinging to life.

The evil imperial storm troopers began working to get the child, Noor the help she needs.

Doctors at a U.S. military base examined Noor and an Atlanta physician, Roger Hudgins, has promised to operate free. Lifeover Ministries reports that the girl they call "Baby Nora" and her grandmother "have airline reservations to arrive in the US." The link includes information on where to send donations to help with medical and personal expenses. Act by Saturday and you can claim a deduction on this year's taxes. The child can thank Allah for a resourceful and perceptive grandmother.

Maybe John Kerry could write a check as a small gesture of apology to the American servicemen he has slandered over the past 35 years. Yep, and pigs will fly.
