Letters to David Irving on this Website


Unless correspondents ask us not to, this Website will post selected letters that it receives, and invite open debate.

Aubrey Soper thinks it is right and proper for helicopter gunships to beat up on Iraqi farmers, Wednesday, October 27, 2004



All Iraqis are fair game (2)

[Previous letter from Mr Soper]

HAVE a listen and look at the video clips available on the link below. Very different story from the excerpt you posted, unless you want to contend that farmers in Iraq plant RPGs [rocket propelled grenades] . . . at night. I am very disappointed in you.

Aubrey Soper


[Website note: The page linked quotes ABC News as stating that the men on the ground were fired upon (north of Baghdad, Dec 1, 2003) because the helicopter crew "believed them to be armed" with a RPG launcher. Mr Soper's letter does not really add much to the controversy.]
