Day 1 of the Iraq War

On 2003-03-20, the opening day of the Iraq war, I sat with some Iraqi expatriates and watched the USA bomb the residential sections of Baghdad on live video feed. They screamed and wailed as the apartment buildings of friends back home were reduced to rubble and friends inside were crushed to death before their eyes. If you are an American, you too probably remember that day, sitting with your friends, having a beer and chips and cheering the bomb hits as if they were a video game or a fireworks display. I see you as a decadent Roman emperor watching a blood spectacle for his entertainment. I find you an outrageous liar when you claim your soldiers do not kill children, when you personally spent hours watching them do it live.
