Funny. I never saw this on the mainstream network news, or in the Saint Louis paper. Maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

Fighting Back

Iraqi police are investigating an election incident at a small Iraqi village south of Baghdad. The villagers, a mix of Shia (search) and Sunni Muslim (search) turned out in large numbers to vote in Sunday’s election, even though insurgents threatened voters with violence.

The Australian Broadcasting Company (search) reports that when the insurgents returned to make good on their threats, they got a nasty surprise. The residents fought back, killing five insurgents and wounding eight, then burning the insurgents’ car. Australian broadcast reporter Mark Willesy concludes, "The people of that village have certainly had enough of the insurgents."

We must have the U.N. look into this. We can't have vigilantism and people taking the law into their own hands. They should have called the authorities. That's what the police are for. How can they expect to live in a civilized democracy when they're walking around armed?

They must have had guns to be able to stand up to armed terrorists. That should be a crime. Take their guns away so the authorities can legally track down the bad guys after the crime. It is totally unfair for the terrorists to be surprised like that. It is their constitutional right to kill unarmed peasants.

Cool...the whole town should get new AK's....now if the rest of the people of Iraq and the Arab world would defend their own county and take back their religion....we could get on to something else.

Actually, it was on ABCs front web page, and also Yahoo's headlines. I don't watch network news, so I can't comment, other than you should stop watching it too.
