History of Fallujah, Iraq

Fallujah 101: a history lesson about the town we are destroying by Rashid Khalidi at In these times

Note: mostly politics with good background information.
There is a small City on one of the bends of the Euphrates that sticks out into the great Syrian Desert. It’s on an ancient trade route linking the oasis towns of the Nejd province of what is today Saudi Arabia with the great cities of Aleppo and Mosul to the north. It also is on the desert highway between Baghdad and Amman. This city is a crossroads.
