Bomb On Rumor

Stories like this, make me wonder:

“The military said the bombings were part of Operation Iron Hammer, the new aggressive tactic of initiating attacks against insurgents before they strike.”

You mean they weren’t attacking the hideouts of insurgents BEFORE? You mean they weren’t going after the people leaving bombs for our troops BEFORE?

Or is this a new policy of killing anyone they SUSPECT of being a threat? Or maybe anyone they get a tip about? Sounds like a good way to get rid of someone you don’t like — tell the US military they are a threat.
