Iraqi reports for November 12, 13, 14, and 15
16 Nov 2004
Modified: 02:21:23 PM
A good deal of what is said in these articles is borne out by the corporate press's final admissions that fighting to the death continues in Fallujah, and that it has spread throughout Iraq. Apparently the morons bent on this occupation learned nothing from Vietnam.

Anyone whose first reaction is to balk at the actions of the resistance should remember that:

1. there would've been no need for resistance had there been no occupation;
2. as we're ringing our hands over the "cycle of violence" in Iraq the resistance is the only one rising to the challenge of actually defending the Iraqi people from the savagery of the occupiers, even as those butcherous troops are obliterating Fallujah;
3. As in the cases of Vietnam, China and Cuba, it'll be the Iraqis and their will to fight the occupation which will free them from the occupation and the foreign exploitation which the u.s. has already begun there.

The Gandhian model which the anti war movement is bent on ramming down the throats of colonized people is neither here nor there because:
1. at the time that Britain negotiated with Gandhi, it was still reeling from the losses sustained in the second world war, so it was hardly in any shape to mount a full offensive to keep India;
2. their alternative to negotiating with Gandhi would've been to confront those factions of the independence movement that were still fighting;
3. ultimately, leaving India did not diminish Britain's ability to exploit the Indian people, as they had to among other things agree to compensate the British for their investments, never mind that they were never asked to colonize that country and set up shop.

The careless disregard with which multinational companies are able to treat the people of India is precisely one of the results of that "peacefully negotiated" "independence," We have no right whatsoever to impose that model on any other people.
