Air America: Compounding the War Crime in Iraq

Some shorter posts today as we try to recover from yesterday's massive hack. Juan Cole alerts us to yet another war crime spawned by the meta-war crime that is the Bush-Blair rape-and-ruin war of aggression against Iraq: Bombing occupied cities from the air.

From Juan Cole:
Late Saturday, the US Air Force launched a series of bombing raids on southeast Baghdad. This is absolutely shameful, that the US is bombing from the air a civilian city that it militarily occupies. You can't possibly do that without killing innocent civilians, as at Ramadi the other day. It is a war crime. US citizens should protest and write their congressional representatives. It is also the worst possible counter-insurgency tactic anyone could ever have imagined. You bomb people, they hate you. The bombing appears to have knocked out what little electricity some parts of Baghdad were still getting.
