Fallujah White Phosphorus. Fallujah, Iraq. This documentary shows that weapons of mass destruction were used by George W. Bush and the American government against a country unable to feed itself, who is desperately trying to survive against insurmountable odds, yet in violation to international law, the American gunslinger Bush lashes out with perhaps a most atrocious weapon of mass destruction any one human could suffer.
This documentary provides evidence that if put before a jury, George W. Bush would be convicted to a death penalty in his own country!

According to the description of New Dawn, “Fallujah. Few names conjure up as many images of blood, sacrifice, and valor as does this ancient city in Al Anbar province forty miles west of Baghdad. This sprawling concrete jungle was the scene of two major U.S. combat operations in 2004. The first was Operation Vigilant Resolve, an aborted effort that April by Marines intent on punishing the city's insurgents. The second, Operation Phantom Fury, was launched seven months later. Lowry's New Dawn for Fallujah' is the first comprehensive history of this fighting. Also known as the Second Battle for Fallujah, Operation Phantom Fury was a protracted house-to-house and street-to-street combat that began on November 7 and continued unabated for seven bloody and exhausting weeks. It was the largest fight of Operation Iraqi Freedom and the heaviest urban combat since the Battle of Hue City, Vietnam 1968. Death and redemption were found everywhere, from narrow streets to courtyards, kitchens, bedrooms, and rooftops. By the time the fighting ended, more than 1,400 insurgents were dead, compared to ninety-five Americans (and 1,000 wounded).”

Is the profession of arms, as the Navy believes it is, primarily a technical job for officers - or is it something else?
To create the cadre of leaders one needs, do you train them as empty vessels that one only needs to fill up with what you want or an empty checklist to complete - or do you train them by helping them bring out their ability to lead and make decisions through informed critical thinking?
