    From Fallujah: "they entered houses and killed people because they didn't speak english"

    There have been some appauling incidents reported from Fallujah, ever since the US regime decided to adopt the "Hama rules" against "insurgents" there. In this article, an Iraqi journalist tells of Americans who, he says "grew easily frustrated with Iraqis who could not speak English." He goes on to say: "Soldiers thought the people were rejecting their orders, so they shot them. But the people just couldn’t understand them."

    The article you reference is publised in The NewStandard, who's cofounder is described on their website as,

    "She has been an active organizer in the anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist globalization movements for almost a decade."

    And

    "For the past year, she has been working as a grassroots anti-war organizer as well as editor..."

    So I would question their bias in reporting on the Iraq war.

    Likewise, the "reporter" they interviewed is "Burhan Fasa’a, an Iraqi journalist who works for the popular Lebanese satellite TV station, LBC..."

    Lebanon has been occupied by Syria since 1976, in fact Syria has always considerd Lebanon part of Syria.

    Syria allows the terrorist group Hizbullah to launch attacks on coalition forces in Iraq. In fact The Telegraph reports,

    "A network of Syrian mosques is sending men, money and weapons to Iraq, fuelling the insurgency."

    Given these facts, it's a pretty obvious these outrageous claims are false.

    Thank you for your comment,

    is it not the case that whether you hear or see reports from either anti war sources, or pro war sources there is a certain amount of bias?

    And, regarding the Iraqi journalists account. Given the level of systemical abuse and torture carried out at US run prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan which have been widely reported on, how can you immediately say that his reporting is not accurate, when journalists "embedded" with US troops in Fallujah were subject to military reporting restrictions?

    In other words, Islam Karimov supporter, you cannot present any facts on the issue, so you attack the source. Typical. If you've got nothing else, you stoop to an ad hominem. Oh, and you also stoop to supporting tyrants like Islam Karimov.
