NOAH SCHACHTMAN desde Iraq:
Meet the new defenders of the city of Fallujah. For years, the Marines have been trying to behead the insurgent hydra that’s been terrorizing the people here. Now, they’ve got a plan that, for the moment, seems to be working. Attacks on American troops are way down; the streets are relatively clean; men are sitting around in outdoor cafes. The progress could always be temporary, of course. Tal Afar, Mosul, and other cities were once defused, only to detonate again. But, at least right now, Fallujah is calm. Cops and cop-wannabes like Am’r and Safa are part of the reason why. Yeah, I’m amazed, too.Venga, a leer el resto.
