Film: Iraq the Real Story

[edit: Link to video at The Guardian above. This 8 minute video is worth every second. If you're on the fence about the worthiness of the invasion or occupation of Iraq, it's a must-see. The film is a window into the bungled mission, and shows how the presence of American troops is degrading toward humanity - both their own, and that of the Iraqis they interact with. Give it a shot.]

Here's what the Guardian has to say about it:
[" Sean Smith, the Guardian's award-winning war photographer, spent nearly six weeks with the 101st Division of the US army in Iraq. Watch his haunting observational film that explodes the myth around the claims that the Iraqis are preparing to take control of their own country.

Contains some strong language.
