    Children are starving in "liberated" Iraq

    According to this report, from the BBC, a UN report has found that the malnutrition rates in children under 5 have doubled since the US led invasion of Iraq:

    When Saddam Hussein was overthrown, about 4% of Iraqi children under five were going hungry; now that figure has almost doubled to 8%, his report says. Governments must recognise their extra-territorial obligations towards the right to food and should not do anything that might undermine access to it of people living outside their borders, it says.
    So, under Hussein, less children were going hungry than under US occupation. How's that for "liberation"? See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
