The women on the video weren't prostitutes before becoming war widows, this is the point being made by the video and the article I shared in my prior post.

Yes well so much for the "liberation" of Iraq from the evil "Saddam" guy. I never liked Saddam, he was a rather ruthless tyrant with a propensity for torturing and murdering his own people, but this was never a problem for his US allies until he turned against America.

The "liberation" of Iraq was much more about the liberation of Iraq's oil reserves and the privatisation of all government industries and services which were sold off to Western Capitalists; the Iraqi people on the whole, apart from a few Iraqi political and economic elites certainly have not been "liberated" in the economic sense; on the contrary.

Since there is simply no welfare state in Iraq, few means of employment and almost a third of all children suffer from chronic malnutrition, unfortunately the women of Iraq, many of whom are war widows from three major conflicts are faced with few other options than prostitution.

For every death of a US or American soldier in their Imperial colonies in Iraq and Afghanistan about 10 times that number are injured, and about 20% of them have serious spinal or brain injuries.



Further one needs to consider the long term effects of their exposure to depleted uranium and other toxic substances which has affected around 40% of the US veterans of the first Gulf War.

"Approximately 250,000 of the 697,000 veterans who served in the 1991 Gulf War are afflicted with enduring chronic multi-symptom illness, a condition with serious consequences.

Exposure to toxic chemicals is the currently believed to be the cause of the illness."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_War_syndrome

Essentially the current war is simply producing a class of ex soldiers much like the American Vietnam veterans, many of whom similarly found themselves rather abandoned by Capitalist society in the aftermath of war, many of whom will require medical care for the rest of their lives.

Unfortunately the increasing unemployment statistics for school leavers and even graduates mean that for many of the youth, particularly the less well educated, it is a choice between a life on benefits, a life working at minimum wage or joining the army.

The current economic recession, government cutbacks and redundancies are part of the problem created in the derivates market where the UK government may have to pay up to $800 billion to pay for the gambling debts of leading financial institutions. It is a matter of cutting government spending to ensure the super rich remain rich and can continue to gamble with their new influx of government money.

The Captalist elites generally do not send their sons to the army, they are more likley to be found on the playfields of Eton or in the financial institutions of the City of London. It is the Capitalist elites who benefit most from the current imperialist wars, but it is our governments who pay the bill for such wars and who will be saddled with endless veterans who face a life of unemployment and illness.

Since the military elites have a habit of carrying out false flag terrorist attacks on their own populations and then blaming their most useful enemies, frankly it would not require too much effort to create the conditions for a "military draft" of unemployed youth, and I would be entirely unsurprised; the future of our military state is quite likely to be increasing militarisation.

Thanks for the post and the list of statistics, Lux.

An eye opening article from April 2010, by journalist/activist Houzan Mahmoud of the Organisation of Women's Freedom in Iraq, 'Do Iraq's Women Miss Saddam?':

Women no longer have many of the civil rights they were afforded under Saddam Hussein's regime. Sharia law has been written into Iraq's constitution, women have been barred from certain aspects of public life in many parts of the country, women's freedom of movement has been severely curtailed, sex trafficking, prostitution, abductions and assassinations of women have all risen and women in government no longer get a year of maternity leave - that has been cut to six months.

While one would hardly go so far as to describe those times as 'the good ole' days', for many women Iraq under Saddam Hussein had its perks.

"In general women were living much better off under Saddam," Yanar Mohammed, a women's rights advocate with the Organisation of Women's Freedom in Iraq told The Media Line. "The Iraq that I grew up in was a very modern Iraq and we had basic human rights."

Islamic law allows temporary bride contracts where money is exchanged for sexual services (which is used as semantics but is really legalised prostitution).

INTERVIEW: RIZGAR HAMAWANDI
Saddam tried to wipe Kurdish people from the face of the earth. The people in Kurdistan are so happy because of the liberation and because now they can live in peace and free.

They said the same about Germans and Jews, which one of the two do you believe?

Many believe Germany deserved to be attacked...

Says who, CNN? Whatever...!

If you were to ask any number of Iraqis at random whether they prefer things as they are or would rather return to SH days, I suspect most would be unable to respond until they recover from choking with laughter! What do you think, or is it a given that the Americans must be bad because they're Americans?
