Mesopotamia. Babylon. The Tigris and Euphrates

The Guardian

On the steel torsos of their missiles, adolescent American soldiers scraw=
l colourful messages in childish handwriting: For Saddam, from the Fat Boy =
Posse. A building goes down. A marketplace. A home. A girl who loves a boy.=
A child who only ever wanted to play with his older brother's marbles.

On March 21, the day after American and British troops began their illega=
l invasion and occupation of Iraq, an "embedded" CNN correspondent intervie=
wed an American soldier. "I wanna get in there and get my nose dirty," Priv=
ate AJ said. "I wanna take revenge for 9/11."

To be fair to the correspondent, even though he was "embedded" he did sor=
t of weakly suggest that so far there was no real evidence that linked the =
Iraqi government to the September 11 attacks. Private AJ stuck his teenage =
tongue out all the way down to the end of his chin. "Yeah, well that stuff'=
s way over my head," he said.

According to a New York Times/CBS News survey, 42 per cent of the America=
n public believes that Saddam Hussein is directly responsible for the Septe=
mber 11 attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon. And an ABC news=
poll says that 55 per cent of Americans believe that Saddam Hussein direct=
ly supports al-Qaida. What percentage of America's armed forces believe the=
se fabrications is anybody's guess.
