Trouble Understanding the Iraq War?

Dead Children at HadithaI do too. But last night I watched a movie “Battle for Haditha” a fictional account of the massacre of civilians that was trigger by the death of a marine by an IED. Although the account is fictional it is based on real events and as I watched it I found myself disgusted with the Americans and the Iraqis alternately yelling at the screen at all parties. But it truly gave me insight into the propoganda that both sides are using.

This morning when I was talking to my focal point for Gender a very young bright woman and I talked about it. About how angry it made me. And she said, “We’ve seen a lot worse.”

How sad. If you watch it let me know what you think. Here is the link.
