'Announcements about Chilcot have stirred long dormant feelings of opposition to the war' - Lindsey German
How many of us had heard the name of Fallujah before the invasion and occupation of Iraq? Probably not many. Thirteen years on, it is impossible not to associate the name with bloodshed and warfare. Impossible to imagine the hell on earth which the people of Fallujah have been subjected to. US invasion and siege, the use of white phosphorus, the devastation of so many lives, sectarian division, the occupation of the town by ISIS and its brutal rule there, and now the siege and attack by the Iraqi government, aided by Western troops. Thousands inside the city are suffering, starving hostages caught in the battle.
Television coverage of the Middle East wars tends to look back no further than the last siege, or suicide bomb, or sectarian attack. The desire for sensational news overrides the necessity of serious analysis. Especially when such analysis tends to see the events there as reflecting a series of catastrophic decisions made by western politicians.
