Would Kerry Also Label This A Nuisance?
John Little over at the Blogs of War notes this article in the London Evening Telegraph. It's a sobering reminder that there were many valid reasons for the United States to lower the boom on Saddam.
Shocked investigators reported finding "thighbones the size of matchsticks" at what they believe is the site of one of Saddam Hussein's atrocities. Among the findings-were the skeletons of unborn babies and toddlers clutching toys.
A baby had been shot in the back of its head and was found still being clutched by its mother, who had been shot in the face ...
One trench contains only women and children while another contains only men. "The youngest foetus we have was 18 to 20 foetal weeks," said a US investigating anthropologist. "Tiny bones, femurs - thighbones the size of a matchstick."
Some 300,000 people are thought to have been killed during Saddam's regime. Iraq's human rights ministry has reportedly identified 40 possible mass graves across the country.
When Hanoi John Kerry whines that Operation Iraqi Freedom was waged "at the wrong time," I guess he's right only in the sense that it came too late for these children.
