In a post a few days ago, I referred to Fallujah as being 100 miles from Baghdad. It's only 40 miles from Baghdad. I still don't see how that makes bombing houses, restaurants and schools in Fallujah a reasonable way to stop terrorist attacks in Baghdad. If the attackers are, in fact, based in Fallujah, restricting the flow of people from Fallujah to Baghdad, especially those with large amounts of explosives in their cars, would seem to be a more appropriate solution. The thing is, I think our military is doing that already. In my opinion, the bombings in Baghdad originate in Baghdad, and the US continues to bomb Fallujah in order to "teach them a lesson." It's a war crime, it's despicable, and nothing good will ever come of it.
