not in our name

AX and Yezida have both linked to this horrific story from Dr. Salam Ismael about the invasion of Fallujah. It is every bit as awful as you might imagine, and more: if you're already convinced that our war on Iraq is unconscionable, you may not need this further proof. But I believe it needs to be as widely disseminated as possible.

The companion story from a cameraman who was imprisoned and abused by our troops is no better, but it's a valuable perspective.

I cannot believe there are people who believe this is an acceptable price for Iraq to pay for democracy.
