Fallujah: The Hidden MassacreThis war can not have witnesses. It can not have witnesses because it is based on lies. The Americans have permitted only embedded journalists to go to Fallujah. Despite that, for example the image of the marine that shoots the wounded and unarmed warrior inside the Fallujah Mosque has gone out. And exactly because this image has gone out, we do not know how, and because it has circulated all over the world, the NBC journalist that has recorded it has been immediately expelled from the embedded body. Fallujah, The Hidden Massacre is a documentary film by Sigfrido Ranucci and Maurizio Torrealta which first aired on Italy's RAI state television network on November 8, 2005.

The film documents the use of weapons that the documentary asserts are chemical weapons, particularly the use of incendiary bombs, and alleges indiscriminate use of violence against civilians and children by military forces of the United States of America in the city of Fallujah in Iraq during the Fallujah Offensive of November 2004.

I took part in the 1st battle of Fallujah, April 2004 with 1st Bn 5th Marines.
This documentary is spot on.
I witnessed people with their skin melted off and there clothes still intact. Many of them women and children.
How can you say anyone deserves that JB? Many of the people we killed in Fallujah were civilians. A lot of women & children too. You & I both know that.
The war and occupation of Iraq was based on a lie. There were no WMD's & the Iraqi populace had no Al Qaeda link. You know it was a lie.
You know half the civilians we encountered had no idea why we were there. To them, we were just the foreign bully occupying their land (which incidentally is the truth). Time to wake up Marine, stop feeding people lines of bull sh*t.
You signed an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. What threat were the Iraqi people to the US homeland? Why then do you continue to glorify an unconstitutional war & war crimes that you even acknowledge happened?
Our government continues to send our troops into banking wars. These aren't wars 'to protect your freedom', these are wars to prop up the elite of the World Bank and protect the US Petro dollar. It is imperialism at its finest.
So, please explain why anyone deserves this?!?

This documentary is pure BS. Do not waste your time. Those who dream of the demise of America have a view of reality that all others must conform to. It matters not whether it is true or false. If it is a lie, no matter, it should be true because they believe it.Their goal is to eliminate all those things which we - A FREE PEOPLE - love and call America without apology. There is a proverb which fits here: "A worthless person, a wicked man, is the one who walks with a perverse mouth." So, answer not a fool according to his folly. These people are fools and not worthy of response because they have already made up their worthless souls.

We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed... A few people cried... Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form, and says, "Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.
We have become death.

the guy narating is an idiot, cant even get things right. the burned kid in vietnam was a girl not a boy. the napalm canisters werent filmed by cameramen hanging to the bottom of the jets, they were the bombing equivelent of gun cameras. most of the images of peeling skin in iraq is caused by decomposition not burning, you can tell by the bloating and skin colour. the massacre happened as a result of private security operators being shot, burned, cut up and hanged on a bridge. the americans werent going to go in untill that happened. i unlike him was actualy in iraq and i get annoyed when id**ts try to talk about things they no nothing about and they cant even get the details right.

Not enough people see these facts and connect the dots yet, but they will. Fear and hate are the tools the few use to divide and manipulate the many.
I am an American, I am an Israeli, I am English, I was born in the Saudi royal family. I do not profit from this war but you hate me because my rulers planned it and caused it. Now you want to kill those close to me because some of them may have killed those close to you. Now the privatized warmongering provocateurs make another dollar off our pain. Lets kill each other and watch them rejoice. It's easier than sorting out an online direct democracy where we govern ourselves.

To "None none".
You are the ideal specimen of the average uneducated american. It wasn't the Cossacks, it was the Ukrainian who "Collaborated" with the Germans at the beginning of WWII.
Second, as Staline saw that the "German" danger was quite more serious than expected, he moved all of his arms and weapons production in Siberia.
The russian solution to the "German problem" came from the "Far East".

You proven yourself to be poorly, very poorly eductated.
Beside, since most if not all american have English as a mother tongue, it is easy for anybody to realise factually that you are indeed so very poorly educated! Your writing is as bad as a primary school student.

Stalin already was in power at the beginning of WWII.
When he came back in Germany with his "Eastern" forces, it was hell for the Germans, up to the time where they had to back-up to Berlin.

It was obvious that late or soon, the germans would have fell anyhow.
It could have taken longer, but the Rech was doomed.
The whole world was there, the Australians, the Arabs of those days, the Canadians, the N-Zelanders and so forth, so forth.

As far as I know, only one nation claimed to be the only one who deserve the merit of bringing down Hitler.

I'll now tell you something that you obviously do have the opportunity to be made aware of: -To discover new things in science & technology, one needs tools. Like either microscopes, industrial instruments and so forth.
I ain't gonna to describe how one can purify uranium 235 by air vortex but it comes down to the same concept that :- "If takes a minimum of "Pre-Existing" technology to create further technology".

Once the humankind possess this and that technology, anybody, late or soon will access the next technology down the road. History clearly state that.

And personnally, when an individual(S) acts as if "He'd" be the only "Goddish" one who saved the world and upon whom the whole world puts his faith in, I'm one of those who claim that it is much better for humankind to ignore such a fool.

The reminescent NAZI behavior, the "Goddish World's Ruler".
An abuser among millions.

All you people that hate on America are pathetic. We're not perfect and never claim to be. Education is failing, banks are failing, support from the public is failing, etc. But what country is ALWAYS responding to aide other countries in need during a catastrophe? We're one of the only countries in the world providing humanitraian assistance (medical, food, education, etc.) to the whole continent of Africe 24/7. You all call us murderers and killers because you FAIL to look at the positive things our country is involved in. And whether you know it or not, AND YOU DON'T because none of you have been in a war zone, military members are doing good things there. Try thinking for yourself instead of blindly agreeing with every single liberal viewpoint.

first off civilians die and that is the case in every war look at WW2 the each government in that war targeted civilian population, V2 rockets at London, the rape of Nanking, fire bombing of Tokyo and Germany. i don't think that the United States should of entered Iraq or Afghanistan but it is a war and civilians do most the dieing in every war the only difference about wars now is that every one has a camera and the internet. all this is is propaganda against the war. the U.S dosent torture nearly as many people as the Batth regime (saddams political party) or the taliban atrocities are committed on both side. and do you guys not think that corruption happened in WW1 and WW2 the 7 years war every wary since the begging of time its like i said we just hear about it now because of technology

white phos isnt really a chemical weapon, it is a chemical but so is any explosive used. many countries still have white phos ammunition such as US, canada, UK.
white phos is "suppost" to be used as a bursting smoke round to give an almost instant smoke screen, with incendiary effects. it reacts on contact with the air and i dont know what buddy is talking about that it reacts with water... it is put in water to prevent it from reacting with air. that being all said its a very deadly and dangerous thing to use and i wouldnt want to be on the receiving end.

@Tiago while I understand exactly where you are coming from because I was in the same situation not so long ago. Vietnam was wrong and Iraq has been wrong but if you watch UNDERCOVER MOSQUE this will make you reconsider and begin to reflect on the situation and wonder just how many moslems hold the same views. I have many moslem friends and have asked them about this undercover mosque and there is no acknowledgement about it just denial. I wont go into what they said but most importantly the moslem I have known the longest only said that these teachings come from saudi arabia the land of mecca and so we cannot question these things. Then I watched ISLAM: WHAT THE WEST SHOULD KNOW and things make perfect sense now in concern to their demenour about being questioned about Islam and in concern to that video. The conclusion I have come to is that this fighting in arab countries is at least a start in self preservation and it shouldnt be condemned but we should be thankful we have such an amazing military advantage to cope with the current situation we find ourselves in as a result of our need to be tolerant. I dont agree with what Israel have been doing but even that I am beginning to understand. My opinion has been that Israel want everything for themselves and they certainly dont do themselves any favours. However maybe we dont know the whole story and obviously there could be better ways of going about things but forget about what we have been doing for a little while and look into Islam itself and I know you will see things differently.

I am suprised to see so many people standing up for america in this comments. It makes me sad to see that some people still think that with napalm or not to invade a country for their goods just because we don't have them is ok. I am against skinheads but if black people invaded europe from africa and killed my family I would probably join them (this is just an analogy) so think before you judge.

there was a document on Wikileaks published in April 2010 i think and it was a leaked CIA memo which talked about how to....(guess...surely it must be some noble and honorable idea from the perfect USA who must police the bad rest of the world...):

how to influence the european media to keep their public voting for continued war in Afghanistan. the europeans are more onto this whole thing than the US, so they knew they had to do a little underhanded deception to get them to go along.

isn't that incredible? how the heck is the US CIA influencing and pressuring media in England, France, Germany, Italy, and other individual countries, to keep doing what they (the CIA) wants?

what kind of messed up situation is that? THAT'S THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG. medias of the world are no longer unbiased. there is something strange and draconian going on and it's not just in the US anymore...

Yea it's amazing that people still continue to defend the unjust and inhumane actions of these military industrial complex forces in the middle east.

There is intense disinformation that has gone on since 9/11. It has been done very expertly. Those on the ground know little or nothing of the political reasons why they are in a certain area, or what their actions are doing for an agenda they wouldn't even dare to think about.

We are told one thing, yet another is actuality. We are given false reasons, and for some reason people of the world (not just US now...England, Germany, France, Italy, others) seem to eat up anything the media or their governments say.

This is not about FREEDOM, DEMOCRACY, HOPE. this is about CONTROL, RESOURCES, POWER. if you knew the extent of the lies and how long they've gone on, it's obvious that our whole system is f'd and it will take a darn-near revolution to change things

shame on you jb, shame on you. How can murdering over a million people and filling their country with 1000s of tons of nuclear waste help them? You have destroyed not only Iraq but the entire middle east. Seriously, you are so far wrong, so horrificly wrong, if I were a religeous man I would pray for your soul.

If the rest of the world decided americas government had to be taken down, and we came over to l.a. and coated the city in white phosphurous, then turned around and told you we are trying to help you and its your fault for being in your homes when we decided to attack how would you feel? A million americans dead, your women giving birth to mutant radiation babies, your entire society destroyed, how would you feel? Seriously, you are ill in the head, mercinary of the international banks, paid killer, shame on you.

@ Gorilla Atheist you could be right in concern to birth defects but the state of some of the dead civilian bodies is horrendous, I have recently seen some footage of phosphorus weopons being used in Israel and the injuries recieved by civilians in gaza were not consistent with the images shown in this video, this leads me to question the authenticity of this video, if it is genuine footage of civilians killed in faluja they used a hell of a lot of phosphorus or something else, it's a pity it is difficult to find the source of this video, is it propaganda being used against the usa or is it evidence of evil beyond comprehension by a country which has not cared much for civilians in the past such as in vietnam. USA look guilty but are they really in this case?

@ Maitreya

How can anyone murder anything? The soul cannot be cut, or burned, or anything. If you believe in heaven and hell, you must believe in the soul. And if you believe in the soul you must know that it is not the murder that condemns (God could care less about our feeble bodies) but the intention behind the murder. Soldiers are doing a valiant job, protecting their respective countries. That is their calling. Now when one kills for fun or selfish gain, then they are sinning. But to kill in the line of duty? One can hardly be punished for such an act. And no less, to protect your freedoms so you can say such things.

Do not get me wrong, I am not agreeing with war. It is violent and stupid. But on the same token, I cannot blame animals for behaving as such. And I will not mourn for life lost because I know life is simply the in between. A body is just like a car, you drive it around and try to keep it running as long as possible, but when it gets totaled you move on. But alas, even some people mourn heavily over cars! So how can I blame your reaction? I cannot. I just wish to inform you of the truth about your own beliefs.

Final note violence only ever happens because one or more parties is being selfish. Cut the selfishness, cut the greed, cut the wars and all pain in the world. That simple, no beliefs or religions needed. Just stop being selfish. That's it. Meditate on that. How do I stop being selfish, and make the world a better place? Maybe it will catch on...

Some of the comments I have seen on here are disgraceful. There are people trying to discredit events that clearly took place. There are people trying to justify murder. How can you justify murder? Every murderer soldier or not will burn in hell and it really is as simple as that.

The violation of basic principles of this universe will see this world punished... believe me it's coming!

Funny, I have never seen a fight won through submission. Submission is only an admission of defeat, until I have enough strength to beat you later. the only way to truly win a war is to kill EVERY last Iraqi or whatever other country you decide to invade.

So on that note I say, war is just plain r@#$%&*@.

If you are not planning on killing every man woman and child in that country, don't step a boot in that country. We all know, no one forcibly submitted will ever stop.

Why do you think Japan and Germany have been so subdued since WWII? Because the people chose to give up. They decided it was better to live under 'supervision' than to continue fighting forever. Seeing too, that their enemy was far superior. We did not win because we beat them into submission, because if even one tiny rebel faction remained we would still be fighting today [in germany and japan i mean]

How did we win vietnam? By LEAVING. We saw no hope of winning unless we killed every man woman and child and since UN will not allow that, we left. There is no way to win a war unless the enemy decides, of their own free will, that an endless battle is far worse than surrender.

How do you know if an enemy will surrender or not? You don't. So it is best to never go to war at all.

What are we really fighting for anyway? Most people don't have any clue.

If anyone knows please fill me in.

Why are we in Iraq right now?

I personally took part in Phantom Fury and I say they deserved what they got. We are not brain dead, we are simply staying ahead of an enemy that refuses to obey the Geneva Convention. How are we (Infantry Marines/Soldiers) supposed to tell the difference between a civilian and an insurgent that wants to kill us. It was us or them and we had families to come home to so I say them. No civilians were purposely killed or murdered or massacred or whatever you want to call it. There are inexplainable casualties of war and if you had seen what I saw you would know that we tried to help all civilians left in the city even after they were given fair notice to get out of the city. What we did/are doing over there IS helping contrary to what anyone else thinks. O and what about the Blackwater agents MURDERED in cold blood and hung up for all the world to see. Is that fair??? I think not.

To call napalm "napalm gas" is actually not that inaccurate. Napalm mostly consists of gasoline (99% I guess). It's gasoline plus a chemical I've forgot the name of but the result of the mixture is a sticky and very flammable gel. Nasty shit, designed to stick to the skin (or whatever is hit) without any possibility to get it off before you’re dead.
Anyone who believe that the US invaded Iraq to help the people and get rid of saddam is f* brain-dead, and who the hell came up with the idea to use uranium as ammunition?! Parts of Iraq, Bosnia, Lebanon and Egypt are contaminated for 4,5 billion years (in Iraq approx. 1500 tons of uranium have been used as ammo)... nicely done US and Israel! Well done, and thanks allot... what would the world do without you guys... In comparison the brain-dead people just got upgraded to geniuses.
