Grief and Lies

Iraqi women mourn the death of relatives killed in a suicide bombing in Baghdad, February 2007.

Iraq's sectarian war, which followed decades of repression and economic sanctions, has left the country's women marginalised, afraid and prey to increasingly radical ideological factions. (AFP/File/Wissam Al-Okaili)

The above statement is false. It was the invasion and occupation by US/UK military that caused all this chaos and laid the groundwork for all this violence. The women of Iraq are today worse off then they were under Saddam's rule. And the country is "increasingly radical" because the entire population of the country is suffering from PTSD. And the entire population has turned to more radical religion because of all this violence and instability and hardship. I wonder how they will ever recover from the genocide the bush/cheney administration has unleashed upon them. I wonder how we can ever make things okay ever again.
