US-UK RULERS’ BARBARISM IN FALLUJAH EXPOSED [IN MAINSTREAM
MEDIA] ALBEIT DRESSED AS A "COMMENT" RATHER THAN A NEWS REPORT.
Will the incompetent US-Controlled UN investigate these war
crimes? No! The list of 4th Reich’s war crimes keeps growing: illegal
invasion, looting of Iraq’s wealth, use of chemical weapons, use of
Napalm, use of depleted uranium, over 100 thousands civilians killed and
double that number crippled, killing reporters, carrying out terrorist attacks
and blaming others for them, tortures and rapes, bombing civilians, forgery,
fabricating false evidence, lying to the American people, lying to the rest
of the world, lying to the UN, staging fake events for media coverage at
tax payers’ expense, diverting reconstruction funds to provide security
for the occupying forces and contractors working on military support and
oil contracts issued to companies in which the warmongers have large interests,
One year ago this week, US-led occupying forces launched a
devastating assault on the Iraqi city of Falluja. The mood was set by Lt
Col Gary Brandl: "The enemy has got a face. He's called Satan. He's
in Falluja. And we're going to destroy him."
The assault was preceded by eight weeks of aerial bombardment.
US troops cut off the city's water, power and food supplies, condemned as
a violation of the Geneva convention by a UN special rapporteur, who
accused occupying forces of "using hunger and deprivation of water
as a weapon of war against the civilian population". Two-thirds
of the city's 300,000 residents fled, many to squatters' camps without basic
As the siege tightened, the Red Cross, Red Crescent and the
media were kept out, while males between the ages of 15 and 55 were kept
in. US sources claimed between 600 and 6,000 insurgents were holed up inside
the city - which means that the vast majority of the remaining inhabitants
On November 8, 10,000 US troops, supported by 2,000 Iraqi
recruits, equipped with artillery and tanks, supported from the air by bombers
and helicopter gunships, blasted their way into a city the size of Leicester.
It took a week to establish control of the main roads; another two before
victory was claimed.
The city's main hospital was selected as the first
target, the New York Times reported, "because the US military
believed it was the source of rumours about heavy casualties". An AP
photographer described US helicopters killing a family of five trying
to ford a river to safety. "There were American snipers
on top of the hospital shooting everyone," said Burhan Fasa'am,
a photographer with the Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation. "With no
medical supplies, people died from their wounds. Everyone in the street
was a target for the Americans."
The US also deployed incendiary weapons,
including white phosphorous. "Usually we keep the gloves on,"
Captain Erik Krivda said, but "for this operation, we took the gloves
off". By the end of operations, the city lay in ruins. Falluja's compensation
commissioner has reported that 36,000 of the city's 50,000 homes were destroyed,
along with 60 schools and 65 mosques and shrines.
The US claims that 2,000 died, most of them fighters. Other
sources disagree. When medical teams arrived in January they collected more
than 700 bodies in only one third of the city. Iraqi NGOs and medical
workers estimate between 4,000 and 6,000 dead, mostly civilians
- a proportionately higher death rate than in Coventry and London during
The collective punishment inflicted on Falluja - with logistical
and political support from Britain - was largely masked by the US and British
media, which relied on reporters embedded with US troops. The BBC, in particular,
offered a sanitised version of the assault: civilian suffering was minimised
and the ethics and strategic logic of the attack largely unscrutinised.
Falluja proved to be yet another of the war's phantom turning
points. Violent resistance spread to other cities. In the last two months,
Tal-Afar, Haditha, Husaybah - all alleged terrorist havens heavily populated
by civilians - have come under the hammer. Falluja is still so heavily patrolled
that visitors have described it as "a giant prison". Only a fraction
of the promised reconstruction and compensation has materialised.
Like Jallianwallah Bagh, Guernica, My Lai, Halabja and Grozny,
Falluja is a place name that has become a symbol of unconscionable
brutality. As the war in Iraq claims more lives, we need to ensure
that this atrocity - so recent, so easily erased from public memory - is
recognised as an example of the barbarism of nations that call themselves
In case you missed it:
US lied to Britain over use of napalm in Iraq war:
Mr Ingram admitted to the Labour MP Harry Cohen in a private
letter obtained by The Independent that he had inadvertently misled Parliament
because he had been misinformed by the US. "The US confirmed to my
officials that they had not used MK77s in Iraq at any time and this was
the basis of my response to you," he told Mr Cohen. "I regret
to say that I have since discovered that this is not the case and must now
correct the position."
Two weeks ago the UK Independent ran an article which confirmed
that the US had "lied to Britain over the use of napalm in Iraq".
(06-17-05) Since then, not one American newspaper or TV station has picked
up the story even though the Pentagon has verified the claims.
