In horrifying detail, he presents accounts of torture, murders, detentions, home raids, and killings at checkpoints, and on convoys and patrols.
As he sums up, “the invasion and the occupation have been a catastrophe.”
At times whilst reading this book I was furious at how there is so little reporting in mainstream media of the slaughter of innocent civilians (many of them women and children). In the eyes of the soldiers who were interviewed for this book everyone in Iraq eventually became a potential threat. I understand this, but it also reiterates the hypochrisy of western "civilisation" - we collectively mourn the loss of a US or UK soldier (depending on where you live) who made a decision to adopt their profession knowing the risks, but there is seldom any mention of the death toll for people indigenous to the places we invade - in fact it doesn't even seem that anyone is seriously keeping track of foreign casualties. This book reinforces the idea that this is because foreign victims of our Wars don't enjoy the status of Human Beings which you or I enjoy.Read more ›
