IRAQ: Fallujah - History in the making.

10-11-2004 10:54

Even here in Amman, I can still feel the suffering of the Iraqi's. The slaughter of Fallujah is underway. I spent time there during April's offensive, I know the place and many of the people. While the 'insurgents' defend their positions with AK47's and Rocket Propelled Grenades, the Americans attack with Howitzers, Planes, Helicopters, Cluster bombs and Hellfire missiles. The weaponry sums up the situation, but one thing is certain - these coming days will be marked down in the pages of the history books.
