Fallujans explain why killing Americans is justified:
"Islam bans what was done to the bodies, but the Americans are as brutal as the youths who burned and mutilated the bodies," said Mahdi Ahmed Saleh, a retired school principal who now runs a small grocery store. "They have done so much to us and they have humiliated us so often."What a cheerful bunch. Look who's side you're on, Kos.
Saleh, like most men in Fallujah, singled out raids on homes as the most troubling U.S. military practice.
"Look at this wide and long street," he said. "Do you see any women? So, if we don't let them out on the street, can you imagine how we feel when American soldiers barge in and see them in their sleeping gowns?"
