    Many Fallujans will ignore elections

    In scarred Falluja many will ignore election

    "This election is clearly an American game. We fear that the Americans, knowing that people here are not willing to vote, might force us to," said lawyer Abdul Latif al-Dulaimy, 50. "This of course will make us hate them more. The streets of Falluja are still red with the blood of innocent people that they spilled in November." Falluja, a Sunni Arab city 32 miles west of Baghdad, was the main insurgent stronghold in Iraq until a U.S. offensive drove most guerrillas out after a fierce battle. Most residents fled ahead of the battle, which left much of the city in ruins. Some have begun to return. But as elsewhere in Iraq's Sunni Arab heartland, most of them are suspicious of the polls and even those who want to vote are afraid to do so.

    I rather expect Fallujans resent being napalmed, and having their lives destroyed by the "hama rules" of engagement.

    I would prefer that a "civilised society" would stick to international law. Simple as that, no doubt difficult for you to understand.
