AP style?

"Insensitve American soldier mocks innocent Iraqi children before executing them and covering up the crimes of the Bush Administration by planting fake WMDs on their corpses."

That kind of AP style?

"In a shocking revelation of the incompetence of the Bush administration, it was revealed Sunday that the Department of Defense under Donald Rumsfeld sent U.S. Marines into battle with only one boot on the ground. Predictably, the ill prepared and badly trained troops took out their frustrations by stealing the feet from helpless Iraqi children."

Young Hamid in the middle, was taking no chances.
He stood for neither right nor left. A tie-breaking vote was needed.

American forces are seen here to be enjoying the training of Iraqi kids for the secretive "Death Corps", which have been constructed in response to America's need for greater manpower in the attempts to rule over her Imperial domains.

Anonymous sources that have witnessed this training regime reports that the Iraqi candidates must do 150 one legged squats. If they refuse or are unable to, the American soldier the proscribed punishment.

In other news, the American Imperial domain of Afghanistan recently almost had one of their American bases overrun by a glorious and daring Taliban strike force, which resulted in one fifth of the American forces in total fatalities and even more wounded.
