The tragedy that is modern day Iraq comes from mans greed and false freindship, where there is a price to helping your brother.
From the 500,000 dead from the sanctions, a genocide in itself, to the many thousands killed in the ensueing civil war, the Iraq tragedy will be remebered in history for the exloitation of the Iraqi people.
A friend of mine from Serbia, on been asked why Serbs suported Milosovic, told me "you must suort your leader, whether or not you agree with him, to kee your nation strong. If you depose him, you weaken your country, which will be taken aart by those who come to liberate you".
I think that was proved true in Iraq.
