Americans are objects of hatred in Falluja's mosques
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/20...

The poster on the wall of the mosque was addressed to "every honest man in Falluja". It was their duty, it said, to join a jihad against "the evil people who bring evil things to Iraq".

The writer did not name the objects of his hatred. He didn't need to. For most people in Falluja, the enemy is clear and unmistakable: the Americans who five months ago came to liberate them.

Yesterday American troops in the area felt the painful consequences of these sentiments when a blast hit a Humvee jeep, killing one soldier and wounding three.

...more...

guess no one in Falluja has been getting any of that $1 Billion in image making propaganda

1. And, no one has yet heard that things are just 'hunky dory' in Falluja
according to Rumsfeld and Bremer.

2. This not difficult to understand
This is to be expected.

Saying 'sorry' for the accidental killing is not enough. They are happy Saddam Hussein is gone, but they have made it clear they don't want the coalition to stay. It is THEIR country!

More and more Muslim extremists are joining the fight in Iraq, just like they did in Afghanistan. The coalition in Iraq look like they're going to be like the Russians in Afghanistan.
