    Media was caught forwarding the lie of an Iraqi woman who holds two bullets that "hit her house."

    Check the picture and see the oh-so-obvious lie.

    Hat tip to David Hardy and his website, Of Arms and the Law. Check out the analysis showing that the bullets seem to be civilian ammunition. "Where is civilian .223 ammunition coming from in Iraq," is the next question.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Original Iraqi quote was "Dang them pesky kids. With all this ammo lying around, they're even using their slingshots to sling it on my proppity. Almost hit my pet goat."

    That's pretty funny. A demonstration that 'technology sufficiently advanced is not different from magic,' especially to a technically backward culture.

    Remember, some of your fellow Americans believe in homeopathy-magic. And they have every right to their ignorance as does this woman.

    Either we are equal or we are not. Good people ought to be armed where they will, with wits and guns and the truth. NRA *******

    A Google Image search for "military surplus ammo" gave me this nice example of the discolorization not polished out on actually military ammo....

    Is a nice article bringing this up...
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    I'm quite sure that every Iraqi knows how bullets work. During Saddam's reign there were guns in every household.

    This is still a nice example of discoloration.

    It also provides the most relevant pictures, I found.

    That box of ammo looks like rounds that have been previously linked for use in belt-feds.

    I guess they're simply making up the news as they go along now.

    She said the bullets "Hit" her house. This was true!!

    IMO....

    They were found in the streets and then thrown at her house by hand by her son. She recovered them and is letting the people know that someone had hit this poor innocent persons home with two bullets.

    End of story.
