The Al-shaaoura (non?) Event

About: US Jets Kill Twenty in Baghdad

BAGHDAD, April 2--US warplanes stroke the Al-shaaoura area, north of Baghdad on Monday, killing twenty and injuring dozens of people as well as destroying a number of houses and civilian cars in the region, Iraqi security sources said.
Well i cannot find the "Al-shaaoura area" on any map, nor any reference to this event elsewhere.  Can you?  Do they just make this stuff up?

I have a feeling that this story way inspired by: Iraqi Bomb Kills 15, Wounds Nearly 200 which is the highest profile report of violence in Iraq today. 

How do you feel about a government that lies to it's people like, allegidely Iran is doing?  Do you not believe that freedom of the press is an ideal worth fighting for?  Do you still maintain that the Liberal's fight to maintain individual freedome is some kind of wishy washy rejection of what is right ?

Conservatism in this country wants individualism.
That's what i used to think too.
Then you used to think correctly. If you don't think that way now then you are in error.

Maybe one of the ones mentioned in the article would be a clue: Altamura, Al-horriya, Al-Kazimiyah
Well none of those areas are in the news today.

Is this some kind of a red-herring?  The problem in Iraq is that there are >200 newspapers all of them have their own opinions & not the journalism advances of the West. OTOH, the West's journalism is erroding & becoming the mouthpiece of the left.  Meanwhile the wild, wild West of the Internet prints & says anything. The problem in Iran is illustrated by the cartoon in 6650.
No red-herring, just a clear example (pending research) of what happens in a country where the press is controlled by the government ... you attempt to change the subject notwistanding. The ACLU is an liberal mindset organization that works to keep our press free of governmental control.  The partisan right wing has been attempting to make that a dirty word.  Me thinks they should wake up and see where they are heading.

Just read any of your left-wing propaganda on moveon.org or the daily kos. Personally, I don't want to waste my time in there.
Apparently you don't know the difference between a specific event and a generalized smear.
Nor do you

Now i realize that M and Ahmadinejad stand on opposite sides of this conflict ... yet can one distinguish quite as easily between how they talk ...
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran's outspoken president, fired an ominous warning at the country's educated elites yesterday by calling for a purge of "liberal and secular" academics in the universities.
The point is that being conservitive and fighting the good fight against liberals does not make put you in the right.
I'm sure it slipped your mind that in Iran the hard-liners are considered to be called the "conservatives".
That is my point.  They are "conservitives".  They are fundamentalist.  Different book but substantually the same tactics.
Nope! your moral equivalence is showing again. Iran's fundamentalists want to run your life. Conservatism in this country wants individualism.

 There are, unfortunately a lot of liberals who would be just as happy if the right (conservative or libertarian) would go away for good.
Can you name any liberals in particular who have said anything that would directly imply that?  Or, as this item is about making stuff up, are you, perhaps, providing us with another example?
Try any number of global warming enthusiasts that want to silence out the so-called skeptics who think the science is not proven yet!
I meant point out actual people and quote their actual saying ... otherwise you are just calling people names.  We have had enough of that.
