The NBC TV footage of a US marine executing a wounded and unarmed Iraqi resistance fighter in a Fallujah mosque was a rare crack in the facade that Washington, with the complicity of most of the corporate media, has tried to present to the world of its brutal assault on the rebel Iraqi city.

Despite press reports of whole apartment complexes being reduced to rubble within minutes by US artillery, of 1000-kilogram bombs being dropped by US warplanes on residential houses, little of what the US assault has meant for Fallujah's population — tens of thousands forced into squalid refugee camps and unknown numbers torn limb from limb by the air strikes of the occupation forces or crushed under the rubble of bombed-out buildings — has been reported by the US TV networks.

The banal exchanges between US newsreaders and their “embedded” reporters touched only on the tragedies that Western, especially US, viewers were allowed to mourn — the death of some 35 members of the US-led occupation forces during the assault on Fallujah.

We talked about this in another thread. Now it's real

Check what is going on in mosul while the attack on fallujah was going on.

Sometimes I wonder if the war in Iraq has the best planners taking care of the civilian's lives at hart.

We should burn all the high ranking officials that sit comfy in offices planning while our troops has to face the mistakes of their poor planning.
