    I don't know if this is true or not because I am not familiar with the source. It appears to be an Arab media source so I will take this with a grain of salt.

    20 wounded, 49 vehicles damaged in U.S. attack on Sadr Hospital

    Baghdad, May 3, (VOI) – Twenty patients and workers in al-Sadr Hospital were wounded and 49 civilian and ambulance vehicles were damaged when U.S. warplanes opened fire at the hospital on Saturday, a health official said.

    Now I realize that there is always some sort of unfortunate collateral damage in war zones but this appears to be a situation of the planes directly attacking the hospital.

    Like I said I am not sure that this is very valid because I don't believe that we would send planes out to attack a hospital no matter what we thought was inside.

    The page also has a side story of four Americans being killed today (Sunday)

    If this is true it appears as if the daily number of Americans being targeted is on the rise.

    Hopefully this is a false report.

    The left wing blogs are having a field day with this one, but there is one source that indicates something happened, in reality this stuff will happen in an "urban war", the answer is simple do not go to war.. it is sensationalized and made a big deal of, however this report indicates that is happened near a hospital.

    The left wing Kurdish paper reports something quite different.. who knows what the truth is, but war is hell and the people who suffer most are the women and children.. this should have been thought about 6 years ago..

    Yes, there's a chance that it could be true.

    Thank you very much for your answer. One can always appreciate wisdom. :D

    BTW, is this how you came up with your answer? I understand it is what John McCain uses.
