    This should be mandatory viewing for everybody. I especially liked what Fisk (the filmmaker) said about TV being a lethal weapon in this war because it acts to promote it without actually showing the reality of it. A complete opposite of what happened in Vietnam. The life of ordinary Iraqis is horrific. No wonder few Americal bigwigs ever leave the Green Zone. They certainly wouldn't want to see the consequences of their actions, let alone what is happening within Iraqi society. And as Fisk says, because of the dangerous conditions, nobody knows what really is happening. Civil war, or just opportunism and thuggery? Both? It seems to me that Americans don't want to know because it is inconvenient to their real interest in the region. If they were truly concerned about bringing democracy to Iraq, they wouldn't be firing on civilians from the air, or killing journalists.

    They are not the only bad guys in this mess. But...the thing is, they're supposed to be the GOOD guys. Watch this, because you sure as hell won't see it on American TV.
