The War in Iraq
In November 2004 the United States aerial and artillery bombing destroyed Fallujah, the Iraqi City of Mosques. In 1968 the U.S. destroyed the Vietnamese city of Ben Tre. A U.S. major told CNN reporter Peter Arnett: "It became necessary to destroy the city in order to save it."
Iraqi Women Speak Out
In March 2006, Code Pink invited eight Iraqi women to the U.S. to speak about their experiences under U.S. invasion and occupation. Two of the women had their entire families killed by U.S. troops. These two women were denied visas on the grounds they did not have sufficient family to guarantee they would return to Iraq.
