Fallujah had a precedence

The world has seen a Fallujah before. In Bosnia it was Srebrenica. There the town’s Muslem men and boys were herded into a soccer field and shot. Is this very different from what the Americans did?

The Americans ordered the evacuation of Fallujah, insisting that anyone who remained would be treated as an insurgent. To insure that resistance fighters did not escape with the refugees, the Americans forbid all men and boys of fighting age to leave the city.

In the Spanish Civil War it was called Guernica.

In the Second World War it was called Lidice. I found a poster made in 1942 to commemorate the eradication of the Czechoslovak town of Lidice. Notice any other similiarity?
