Relevant? Chicago, the new Fallujah? Give me a break

Calling anything "the new Fallujah" is just lazy and irresponsible. It's like when talking heads compare George W. or Obama to Hitler. It's just ridiculous, pseudo-journalism. No mercenaries are being burn and mutilated and finally hung from bridges in Chicago; no one is baking people in their homes with white phosphorus in Chicago; no one is poisoning the soil with depleted (or slightly enriched uranium) in Chicago, and, thank God the cancer and birth defect rates in Chicago are not crippling enough to convince women to stop having children.
