Life is definitely better for Iraqis now than under Saddam.
Every month in Iraq hundreds of victims are struck down by sectarian violence or massive bombing campaigns, and a small band of volunteers has taken it upon themselves to give the unclaimed dead a proper burial.
“We’ve been doing this for 20 years, under Saddam, but the numbers have increased, as have the difficulties,” Sheik Jamal al-Sudani, who leads the volunteers, tells CNN correspondent Michael Ware. “Because now it is as if the streets are flowing with blood.”
One only wonders how the Iraqi people will ever be able to thank the American people to Bush’s satisfaction?
