Send in the bulldozers: what Israel told marines about urban battles.
Today, the Democracy Now radio show interviewed Chris McGreal of the Independent, author of the story, who details how the U.S. sent 1,000 troops to Israel for “training” in this.
Democracy Now also reports, based on live interviews from Iraq, that the U.S. is using cluster bombs on civilian areas, with horrific results on women and children.
(the above stories will be on their website in audio format later today)
They also have an exclusive on their home page:
