The dead: Red Cross officials estimate that at least 800 civilians have been killed by US troops in Fallujah so far, a fact that few in the American mainstream press care to acknowledge. Meanwhile, the execution of an unarmed, wounded Iraqi in a mosque by a US soldier--an overt violation of the Geneva Conventions--may not be an isolated incident. According to Agence France-Presse, a correspondent found 27 bodies of Iraqis executed at point-blank range. And: The Toronto Star asks, when Bush visits Canada later this year, should he be welcomed, or brought up on war-crimes charges? Another milestone: Well over 1200 American GIs have been killed in Iraq so far. Well over 8500 enlisted have been injured, according to the Department of Defense.
