16. too early to speak of a humanitarian crisis?
Isn't the country as a whole already a humanitarian crisis? Surely it doesn't become a crisis only after the Christians are attacked.

I read lines like this: "The terrorists had shot at any car in the neighbourhood, knowing they would kill Christians." and the contrast between what's happening there and what we're doing in Fallujah is negligible.

Not that it shouldn't be reported, but the reporter seems to have glossed over the larger context.
