Well, if that doesn't win

over the hearts and minds, I don't know what will:

U.S. forces shoot and kill pregnant woman.

U.S. forces killed two Iraqi women — one of them about to give birth — when the troops shot at a car that failed to stop at an observation post in a city north of Baghdad, Iraqi officials and relatives said Wednesday. Nabiha Nisaif Jassim, 35, was being raced to the maternity hospital in Samarra by her brother when the shooting occurred Tuesday.

I can hear the wingnuts now: She could've been hiding a bomb under her dress. Ya never know. And hey, that kill was a 2-for-1!

I wonder if this would've happened had the forces NOT been on their third or fourth tour of duty.
