Carnage: The Real Face of War

April 8, 2003

A crushing shock wave with a 8,500 degree Fahrenheit fireball releasing a shower of jagged, white-hot metal fragments at supersonic speed that shred flesh, crush cells, rupture lungs, burst sinus cavities and rip away limbs in a maelstrom of destruction. This is the 2,000 pound Mark-84 JDAM "Bug Splat" bomb, the workhorse of the U.S. Military.

It is not the description you heard on NBC or CNN when they reported that on Monday, April 7, a U.S. Air Force B-1 bomber dropped 4 JDAMs on an apartment building in Baghdad.

Nor do you hear from Lamea, 36 years old, who saw her two young daughters decapitated, her son and eight other members of her family slaughtered by U.S. soldiers as she and her family tried to escape from the attack on Karbala.

Nor do you hear reports from the International Committee of the Red Cross, whose workers in Iraq are "horrified" by the growing numbers of small toddlers of two and three years of age whose arms and legs are shredded by U.S. cluster bombs and must be amputated.

Now, you can hear a shocking exposť of what is actually taking place in Iraq. Listen to"Carnage, the Real Face of War," reported by Ralph Schoenman and Mya Shone.
