Iraki Children - Again

(Updated below)

Just to remind you that we are still harming children in Irak,

for what reason absolutely no one, General Petraeus,

Dick Cheney,

Alberto Gonzales
, Michael Mukasey,

or George Bush himself


They say that "we" are "winning" the "War in Iraq." The "we" does not include me, but does include Blackwater and Halliburton. No one, especially the aforementioned, can tell me what "winning" would mean. (It certainly wouldn't mean a stable, consensus driven, democratic, America friendly, central government in Iraq free of sectarian strife. Or free of American bases and a boondoogle Embassy.) And, there is no true "War in Iraq." There is a brutal, American, permanent occupation with an induced, sectarian, Civil War. It is a nightmare for the very Iraki people we supposedly "liberated." (I know, you are tired of my quotes.)

And that leads to this:

We destroy the children of a land at our own risk.

Update from here;
Child mortality in Iraq has spiralled because of the tense security situation, deteriorating health services and lack of medical supplies, say experts.

According to a report released in May 2007 by aid agency Save the Children, “Iraq’s child mortality rate has increased by a staggering 150 per cent since 1990, more than any other country.” (emphasis added)
