So, after seven years, a single U.S marine has been tried for the murder of 24 unarmed iraqis in three houses in Haditha, 2005. They were mostly women and children, one old man in a wheelchair. I wrote a post about it in 2006 I think (in the old blog) and included this beautiful image, 'Haditha', by Emily Johns, an artist whose work I love.
And what sentence did the marine receive? Three months. I could cry for the shame of it.
