Worse than Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Iraq today
The people of Iraq have suffered. They continue to suffer with the legacy of a needless war with effects comparable to atomic bombs dropped on them. Birth defects and cancer incidence in Fallujah are high. Could Saddam himself inflicted worse on the people?
The people of Iraq have had to endure disaffected troops completely out of control, murderous privateers and profiteers answerable to no one not to mention insurgents as deadly as anyone else fighting there. As Dame Eliza http://www.guardian.co.uk/global/blog/2010/jul/20/iraq-war-inquiry-iraq the effect of going to war in Islamic countries had the exact effect of what we were told it was to prevent of creating the UK as a target. Iraq had no connection with 9/11 but the US administration backed by the Holy Blair went in guns blazing anyway supposedly to liberate the downtrodden people of Iraq.
