Destroying the city to save it

I see that Yezida beat me to the punch, but if you haven't seen it yet, via Ken MacLeod I have a horrific account of the invasion of Fallujah.
You may think you know what happened in Fallujah. But the truth is worse than you could possibly have imagined.
This article relies on a single source, but it's apparently supported by video shot for the BBC, which suggests that the report is reliable. I'd note for the benefit of readers disinclined to trust a report from the UK Socialist Worker that, for historical reasons, socialists in the UK are generally not nearly as nutty as socialists in the US.
