Creating the Nightmares We Went There to Prevent

From Prisonplanet

US Troops Ordered To Commit War Crimes:

* * *
"A second convoy from Baghdad, headed by Dr. Said Ismael Haki, the IRCS president, delivered aid to Fallujah on Nov. 26. 'There are no houses left in Fallujah, only destroyed places,' Haki said. 'I really don,t know how the people will return to the city. No one will find their homes.'

As U.S. troops in Fallujah engaged in what has been described as the most intense urban combat since Vietnam, the controlled press scrupulously avoided discussion or footage of the devastation of the rebellious Sunni city. For example, during the second week of the attack, rather than discuss the widespread devastation of Fallujah, U.S. television news programs focused largely on a brawl between basketball players and fans in Detroit.

At least 136 U.S. soldiers were killed during November in Iraq, and more than 800 were wounded, most of them in Fallujah, making it the most costly month, and operation, in terms of U.S. lives lost since the invasion of Iraq began in March 2003.


Michael Ware, Baghdad bureau chief for Time magazine, who has been in Fallujah during the fighting, said U.S. actions in Fallujah are 'creating the nightmare that we are seeking to prevent.

'I stood there as I saw American boys die,' Ware told Chris Matthews of MSNBC on Nov. 24, 'I mean, a man shot at close range, blown apart by a rocket-propelled grenade. He dies there in front of you, and I can,t help but think why? For what cause?"

'I see us creating the very thing that the president said we went there to prevent,' Ware said, '. . . . subsequent to this invasion and the occupation and the guerrilla war that is currently under way, we are the midwives of the next generation Al Qaeda and Islamic terrorist.' "
