Patriot Advisory: SKIP THIS POST

Remember Giuliana Sgrena?

She was the Italian journalist who was kidnapped in Iraq in February. Upon her release she was nearly killed by "friendly fire" on the way to Baghdad Airport. Wikipedia has multiple accoounts of what happened, but that is not the point of this post. That is background.

Her report is being aired tonight on Italian Satellite TV. It is a documentary about the US assault on Fallujah. The focus of the report is the use of an advanced form of chemical weapon called by various names, but referred to as simply "W.P." (short for white phosphorus). Do your own homework about that. I don't care to link any of what I found.

As of last night there was a link to a video of the documentary.
In addition to being politically offensive to US patriots, it also contains graphic images and content that can be disturbing.
Viewers are advised to keep your mouse near the back button. I did. I used the back button before the film finished so I can't make any further comments.

Hello Hoots, I watched some but only about 5 minutes worth. War is hell, but man has laid waste on each other since the beginning of time. "Why can't we all just get along?" Yea, right.

We can't even get along with our next door neighbor, employer, team members, etc. Races and cultures always collide. It's just the inherent makeup of man. See "Planet of the Apes," [ the original ] for more details.

"Those bastards finally did it. Those god-damned bastards. They blew the sum bitch up. God dammit." Apologies to Taylor, aka Charlton Heston.
