Re: “In the Valley of Elah

Years into the American invasion and occupation of Iraq, where is the flood of anti-war novels that a decent society would produce? Where is the novelistic exposure of religious and academic, corporate and governmental forces that have built and maintained support for an invasion and occupation that has been judged to be illegal by the head of the United Nations and legal experts across America and the globe, and has increased the likelihood of attack against the US, and was based on fraud as known in advance, and meanwhile has killed thousands of American troops, wounded and debilitated tens of thousands of others, and killed more than a million Iraqis, maimed countless more, created millions of refugees, and has otherwise destroyed their country? The war's current and growing cost of half a trillion US tax dollars seems slight by comparison. Where are the novels depicting the scandalous nature of the US invasion and occupation of Iraq, an illicit aggression that has created one of the greatest humanitarian crises in the world today? Below - the good and the bad, and the in-between - an incomplete list of Iraq War fiction: IRAQ WAR NOVELS: Hocus Potus - Malcolm MacPherson The Sirens of Baghdad - Yasmina Khadra Last One In - Nicholas Kulish Homefront - Tony Christini Still the Monkey - Alivia C.
