Two Copters Collide in the Deadliest Incident of the Iraq War
By Kemberly Richardson

(Mosul-WABC, November 16, 2003) Seven*** soldiers were killed when
their Black Hawk helicopters collided in the northern Iraqi city of
Mosul. Soldiers are still busy clearing the rubble at the two crash
sites. This incident is the worst single loss of U.S. life since the
start of the War in Iraq.

The helicopters crashed in a residential neighborhood of Mosul in
northern Iraq. People on the ground say it was dark and one helicopter
slammed into the other. One of the choppers crashed into the roof of a
house. Five U.S. soldiers were injured and one remains unaccounted for.
Iraqi police are being credited for saving at least one American life
because of their quick response. A U.S. military officer reportedly said
one of the choppers was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade.

The Black Hawks were the third and fourth U.S. helicopters to crash this
month, killing at least 34 soldiers. Earlier, an American soldier was
killed in Baghdad when his Humvee hit a roadside bomb. He was the 400th
U.S. serviceman killed since fighting in Iraq began eight months ago.

Thanks for the post, Harry. It had nothing to do with your boating experiences
today, but since none of us can read the news it was quite valuable. I'm glad to
see jps has taught you well.

I can even see the glee on your face as you find another incident to further
your desire for anti-bush sentiment.

There's no glee in the deaths of these soldiers. It is sad, though, that
so many have to die in the attempt to prop up the failed presidency of
George W. Bush.

As for "anti-Bush" sentiment, there's no need to flame that fire. He's
building it up all on his own.
