Vive la Résistance

Two excellent articles arguing that the resistance is right. Scott Ritter on Common Dreams, and David Swan at the Black Agenda Report. Ritter, a former Marine, is worth quoting:

"We are occupying their homeland. We are violating their sovereignty. We are butchering, abusing and torturing their citizens. Our continued presence is an affront to the socio-economic-political fabric that is (or was) Iraqi society. If someone occupied my hometown in the same manner Americans occupy Iraq, I’d be killing them any way I could. And I would be called a hero by my own people."
