Iraq Children Paying High Price

Two million children in Iraq are facing threats including poor nutrition, lack of education, disease and violence, the UN children's agency, Unicef, has said.

Hundreds were killed in violence during 2007, while 1,350 were detained by the authorities, it said in a new report.
This story simply cannot be true. After all, it was the Chimp and Grumpy McCheney who told us that our illegal invasion and occupation of Iraqnam would make the place a veritable garden of democracy. We were going to be greeted as liberators and all would be well - especially well once the US got its hands on Iraqi oil.

This story from the BBC doesn't paint the same rosy scenario. You dont think that Chimpy and Grumpy lied to us do you?
