Lyndon Hood - Pro-Iraqi, Wellington

Friday, September 29, 2006

I know it's sad that Australian troops are coming under fire in Iraq and all but what gets me about their press release is this:
... Australian soldiers serving in Southern Iraq were engaged by Anti-Iraqi Forces and that an intense exchange of fire ensued.
Anti-Iraqi Forces? Capitalised?

I mean, judging by the available evidence, they seem to be more anti-Australian.

Might the actually be Iraqis? If that's the case, maybe 'self-hating Iraqis' would be clearer.

Although I suppose it's apt in that, if you combine an Iraqi and an Anti-Iraqi into one body, you get an explosion.
