Barbarism in Falluja (Iraq)
Today's horrific attack on two vehicles carrying four civilian contractors, of US nationality, in Falluja is quite sickening. The group were shot and burned in their cars, then dragged through the town, dismembered and two of the charred remains hung from a bridge.
Elsewhere in the country, 5 US soldiers were killed in a bomb attack west of Baghdad and 3 British soldiers were injured in al-Basrah when their vehicle was struck by an explosion.
The barbarity of the Falluja attack, and the spectacle of cheering crowds exulting over the kicking, stamping and dismembering of other human beings .... really, all one can do is retch. Completely incomprehensible.
