Monday July 26 99: U.S. Bombs Target In Northern Iraq
BONN (Reuters) - U.S. warplanes bombed a communications center in northern Iraq Monday after coming under attack from anti-aircraft batteries, a spokeswoman for the U.S. European Command in Germany said.
U.S. warplanes have been bombing the country of Iraq on a weekly
basis since last December. There is virtually no discussion in the U.S.
press of this ongoing murder by the U.S. warplanes, funded by the U.S.
taxpayer. We are here to report what they won't.
On January 25, 1999, an American AGM-130 missile struck the Al Jumhuriya neighborhood of Basra killing seven people and injuring many more. Pentagon spokesman, Ken Bacon, acknowledged the residential strike the next day (CNN) saying "the United States regretted any civilian casualties," but added that "U.S. officials had no 'independent confirmation' that the missile killed any Iraqis."
