Rowley, thank you for the video link. I wish this reply had been incorporated within your original post. Your reception might have been better. I happen to agree, this war is an illegal invasion by the US, and the current situation endangers everyone, the resistance, the military, the whole world. For the polarization and hatred against Americans and Israelis is being fed by this disaster.
I feel very badly for the Iraqui people shown in this video, and also, for Americans and foreigners that are being executed.
This type of video is not what the major US media or the government want anyone to see, as you cannot watch it without feeling a strong sympathy for the resistance, which is growing daily. But I won't stand and wave anyone's flag on either side. The whole of humanity is suffering from this, far more than some who voted for Bush want to admit. Don't count on many welcoming your POV, though in part, I do agree, people who stand up and fight for their rights are to honored.
Having said that, I know I will get some flack from a handful of people at Pips, but so be it. I'm not the one being shot at, this time, though I lived in the Middle East for a year and remember the sound of the Katyusha rockets, and saw a bus blowup as the one I was on left the Tel Aviv bus terminal.
May everyone's personal Allah protect his/her family, and may we find a way to end this horrid conflict.
