The LA murder rate is going up and the police chief has requested more officers. But California is broke and cannot afford to recruit. Civil rights lawyer Connie Rice warns that with too few officers to "police humanely", parts of the city may as well be in Falluja.

Last week, a bomb fell 12 feet from Huda Al-Jazairy’s house in Baghdad. Fortunately, she said, it fell on open ground and no one was hurt. The blast broke windows in surrounding houses. Al-Jazairy was out of her house at the time, and neighbors told her not to go back.

How GI bullies are making enemies of their Iraqi friends (tags)
Still refusing to acknowledge a rising consensus among observers that it faces a broad-based nationalist movement, President George Bush insisted in a weekend radio address that "a small faction is attempting to . . . seize power", and his Baghdad spokesman, Dan Senor, railed against "two-bit thugs . . . despised by a majority of Iraqis". But, while the Americans kill Iraqis in the numbers that they have taken to, they will have little or no support from Iraqis - no politician or religious leader can afford such an association. Personally many find it distasteful and if they were to support it publicly, they would go through their lives fearing a fate similar to that of the US security contractors in Falluja.

"And this is like Hue City in Vietnam," he said, referring to the former imperial capital where in 1968 US troops faced the most ferocious street fighting of the communists' decisive Tet offensive. Marines, who took part in defeating Saddam's armed forces a year ago, said the resistance they were now facing was tougher than anything thrown at them by the old regime's once vaunted Republican Guards. Sergeant James Ramsel, of the battalion's Alpha Company, said there had been no let-up in the resistance. "It's been going on all night; it's still going on."
Iraqis break U.S. siege of Falluja to deliver humanitarian aid! (tags)
Iraqi volunteers drive with humanitarian supplies towards areas under military siege by U.S. occupation forces in the town of Falluja, from depots in a Baghdad suburb April 8, 2004. When masses of ordinary Iraqis defy the occupation army to travel to Falluja with the intent of delivering food and medicine to those under U.S. bombs, it should be obvious that what is occurring in Iraq is a true people's uprising. Those who call the insurgents "Saddam remnants" or "dead enders", are deluding themselves. Resistance comes in many forms (photo - Ali Jasim/Reuters). EMERGENCY IRAQ PROTEST. Friday, April 9 - 5 pm.
