After Saddam's Mass Graves, Allawi's/Bush's Mass Graves

As Juan Cole hints at it too, the US refuses to let the Red Crescent convoy into Fallujah party because it wants to bury the dead - filling mass graves without informing relatives, just like Saddam. (Well, they didn't do it for the first time at all; I remember German SPIEGEL TV's images from Baghdad in April 2003, when a lone US soldier is looking on while Iraqis unearth corpses of relatives, corpses his comrades killed in battle and buried the day before.)

BTW, here is another good article on the history of Fallujah, this time back into British colonialist times.
