Thanks to Left IIt's kinda self explanatory, as long as you remember that Allawi told Fallujans is that all they had to do to prevent the razing of their town was to hand over Zarqawi... who apparently wasn't there. And then remember that all 15-50 year old men were not allowed to flee (turned back), and that some US units had orders to shoot any men they saw in that age range. We are slaughterers.
