: The Marines came face-to-face with “human shields” in Baghdad:
There were some American and European “human shields” at the rally, people who had come to put themselves in harm’s way in hopes of stopping the shooting. They chastised the Marines for attacking Iraq and promoting war.
That angered some of the men. “I didn’t bury two of my fellow Marines just so someone like that could call us murderers,” said one Marine, angry and teary, referring to an Iraqi artillery attack that killed two of his colleagues on Monday. “They died for this country.”
To quote the Iraqis: Wankers.
