ALAN RAMSEY has become unhinged:

ALAN RAMSEY has become unhinged:

We learnt this week, however, that Britain's first battle deaths were two pilots disintegrated by a missile from a US ground crew, and that American marines shot up a CNN television crew, killing at least one and most likely three journalists ...

Terry Lloyd and his associates worked for ITV, not CNN, and nobody - so far as I'm aware - has yet established the source of the friendly fire that killed him. His own network says the deadly round may have come from British troops, but is uncertain. Ramsey seems to have a problem with low civilian casualties, too:

It's just that you look at the grossness, in this country's political leadership as well as what is happening in Iraq, with its "humane bombing", as Washington obscenely portrays it - "tapestry" bombing as opposed to "carpet" bombing, one talking head observed - and you can't help feeling the sheer madness of it all.

Ramsey thinks a bombing campaign that spares civilians is "obscene" and "madness"? It's time for the Sydney Morning Herald to book Al a retirement suite in Crazy World.
