30,000 civilian deaths since the invasion of Iraq. Why?

How many insurgents have they actually killed?

The latest assault seems to have resulted in the capture of one man suspected of supporting Al qaeda.

The cost of this?

Four to eleven civilians depending on who's telling the story and plenty of U.S. tax dollars. Seems a pretty high price for one captured 'enemy'. Why do they have to bomb indiscriminately? Seems to me that police action would have done the job without so much destruction.

What is the point of such an air strike?

I think May 1st would be a good day to just stop contributing to this war machine. People should walk off the job and protest in the streets. Refuse to go back to work until the war is over. Hit them in the pocket book and help your neighbors in need.

I think a little personal sacrifice from U.S. citizens and their allies might be in order.
