Third of Iraqis 'need urgent aid'

Third of Iraqis 'need urgent aid'
Nearly a third of the population of Iraq is in need of immediate emergency aid, according to a new report from Oxfam and a coalition of Iraqi NGOs. The report said the government was failing to provide basics such as food and shelter for eight million people. It warned of a humanitarian crisis that had escalated since the 2003 invasion. Meanwhile, the US agency overseeing reconstruction in Iraq said economic mismanagement and corruption were equivalent to "a second insurgency".
Hasn’t this war for freedom and democracy gone swimmingly folks? What were the bullshit excuses again, oh that’s right there were those weapons of mass destruction that didn’t exist, there were the nukes that didn’t exist there was the global threat that didn’t exist, and what are the reasons for staying now – ‘we’ve made such an abortion out of this murderous war on a former CIA client regime, that the people have become so radicalized against us that if we leave they will come after us’, I mean in terms of self-justification this has to take some type of award, we have to stay because we lied. And why does any of this matter for us in sleepy NZ, well when some angry, furious young alienated Muslim decides to strike back at the West with some horror terrorist attack, let’s not pretend we don’t know why this time.

"When some angry, furious young alienated Muslim ... " Don't you mean "When some angry, furious young alienated Iraqi... "? I mean, there is no excuse for, say, an Indonesian Muslim to attack the West when the USA invades a country that happens to be Muslim such as Iraq. Otherwise, all the atrocities committed against Christians in Muslim countries would justify an angry alienated Christian to attack Muslims. Iraq is just a convenient excuse for Muslim atrocities. They will always find some excuse for hating the West. For example, the Bali bombings occurred in 2002 - prior to the 2003 Iraq invasion.
