"I was in front of the riot police and we started moving slowly backwards," said Moss. "I saw a man get hit by a baton. He went down. With my back to the police — as I was picking him up — that’s when I was shot." Moss lifted his shirt to show the quarter-sized welts and abrasions on his back. Moss said he used his body to shield an older man who had been pushed to the ground by police. "It felt like a branding iron," Moss said. "I talked to (the man) briefly afterwards. He thanked me, but was so shaken up he could hardly talk."

What are the real reasons behind the administration's rush towards war?

The U.S. isn't threatening an invasion simply to ensure its continued access to Iraqi oil. Rather, it is a much broader U.S. play for control of the oil industry and the ability to set the price of oil on the world market. Iraq's oil reserves are second only to Saudi Arabia's. And with U.S.-backed Saudi Arabia increasingly unstable, the question of which oil companies - French, Russian, or American - would control Iraq's rich but unexplored oil fields once sanctions are lifted has moved to the top of Washington's agenda.
