Every US-citizen should know this!
Remember: finally the US had to withdraw from Vietnam also
because of the mounting resistance inside US!

Love and peace to our human family

Resistance field commander saw American troops use women and
children as human shields atop their tanks.

A field commander in the Iraqi Resistance disclosed to a
correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam in al-Fallujah what he
called the "tragedy of the street fighting" by which he meant
the way that the invading American troops were using Iraqi
women and children as human shields.

The commander said that the tragedy began last Tuesday. 
Before that he had never seen it before, where the Americans
were using women and children to shield their tanks.  The
commander commented: "this state is living through a type of
savagery that history has never known before."

The Resistance field commander said "we could hear the cries
of the children and the women's calls for help from atop a
column of tanks that was driving along ath-Tharthar street
last Tuesday.  Some of our fighters closed their eyes in pain
and wept at the sight."
