Friendly Fire - Not As Friendly As These Two

The hopes of the American Defence Force, some of whom were looking forward to firing indiscriminately at whatever they felt like, have been dealt a severe blow. A coroner has ruled that the killing of Lance Corporal Matty Hull, by a US pilot, was "unlawful" and "entirely avoidable".

In what has been described as "disappointing" No US witnesses attended the inquest. No doubt falling back on the 'I can't be guilty if you can't see me' defence; a defence used by frightened children everywhere.

The US Defence Force issued an excuse for the unfortunate death of Hull (25) "He was in a tank. You know who else travels in tanks... the enemy."

Now that they can no longer shoot at allied forces, Americans will have to be content with accidentally killing Iraqi civilians.

Make Tom Taylor's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
