iraqis unite to break through US roadblocks to bring food and medical supplies to besieged Fallujah town.

a heart-warming story of sudden unity and the ability to overcome petty religious differences, of the common man peacefully taking on the military...and peacefully winning.

and i have such mixed feelings about it.

A convoy of pedestrians and cars has managed to break through US military roadblocks in order to bring aid to rebel fighters in Fallujah. Residents of the area helped push the convoy through and US soldiers saw a hail of stones come their way.

In a rare display of sectarian unity, Sunnite and Shiite clerics from Baghdad organized the convoy. marchers chanted: "No Sunnis, no Shiites, yes for Islamic unity. We are Sunni and Shiite brothers and will never sell our country."
