"Anyone who stands in the way of American interests will be arrested" [View all]

From Beyond The Green Zone-
forward by Amy Goodman

In 2003, Dahr Jamail was an unembedded reporter in Iraq.
He saw and photographed things that the MSM reporters never reported on.

If you want the REAL story of what happened in Iraq before, during and after 2003, this book is a must read.
The above quote is by an American soldier who explained why the American military invaded a boys school.
Seems the young boys had thrown rocks at a Humvee and were planning a Pro-Saddam protest march the next day.
So the Army took tanks,helicopters, Humvees and a bunch of men, locked down the school and arrested the boys.

Extremely readable book, and one of the very few I will be keeping.
I highly recommend it, and since it is not a brand new book, it should be had for a good price.

I had said for years when reading of our mis adventures in Iraq that many of the tactics and tools used against Iraqi citizens there would be used against us: bio-metrics, sound cannons, etc.
And now OWS has shown how true the statement is:
"Anyone who stands in the way of American interests will be arrested"
