"Look at these different places around the world where there's been tremendous death and destruction because killers kill."—George W. Bush, 1/29/04
Go to Fallujah In Pictures to see what it looks like when we "liberate" and "secure" a city. The person behind the site is collecting Fallujah pictures from all over the web because "i believe the american people are decent and not without humanity. they have not seen what is being done in their name. maybe we don't live in a world that can do without war. i do know that people need to know what war means before they decide."
Over at The Guardian, novelist Haifa Zangana describes the "terrorists" and "foreign fighters" we went to Fallujah to kill:
Most fighters in Iraq are Iraqis who are outraged to see their country's resources robbed while they live in slums, drink water mixed with sewage and have no say in the political process. Nineteen months after 'liberation' they can see how little the liberators have done to ease their suffering. No wonder an increasing number of Iraqis are either joining or supporting the resistance, realising that, as in the past, they must fight on their own.
