Another Mass-Media War Crime
[By now this kind of shameless counter-revolutionary manipulation of public feelings through the misappropriation of photographic evidence is so banal as to be unworthy of comment. The usual response from an abjectly ignorant and terrified populace is, "This doesn't mean that Assad (or Kaddaffy or Saddam or al-Bashir or Milosevic or Habyarimana or Ceaucescu or Stalin or Mao or OJ . . . ) didn't really slaughter a bunch of other kids somewhere else, some other time."

Al Musayyib, Iraq – May 27, 2003 An Iraqi child jumps over a line of hundreds of bodies, in a school where they have been transported from a mass grave, to be identified.
They were discovered in the desert in the outskirts of Al Musayyib, 40 km south of Baghdad.
It has been estimated that between 10,000 and 15,000 Iraqis had been reported missing in the region south of Baghdad.
People have been searching for days for identity cards or other clues among the skeletons to try to find the remains of brothers, fathers, mothers, sisters and even children who disappeared when Saddam’s government crushed a Shi’ite uprising following the 1991 Gulf War.
