GlobalEcho - Alternative Media
As torture in Iraq was being exposed, Rumsfeld grovelled before Saddam

And so myth-making and tragedy go hand in hand.
Iraq's monumental catastrophe has become routine,
shapeless, an incipient "civil war". Note how the
American framework of disaster is now being portrayed
as an Iraqi vs Iraqi war, as if the huge and brutal
US occupation has nothing to do with the appalling
violence in Iraq. They blow up each other's mosques?
They just don't want to get on. We told them to have
a non-sectarian government and they refused. That,
I suspect, will be the get-out line when the next
deluge overwhelms the Americans in Iraq.
