Children Have Been Killed When Vehicles Offload Rubbish Many Die of Disease

Both Erdla and I have written repeatedly about the plight of Iraqi widows, families, and children of how they are so desperate for food that they scavenge rubbish dumps for food, of how they are at risk from disease, of how they are at risk of abduction and torture, of how their educational prospects are being ruined. The list of damage done by the American war against Iraq is endless. The two pictures above taken on - Thursday June 15th 2006, show children at work sorting through rubbish at a dump just south of Najaf. More than 120 families live beside the dump and work their during the day salvaging food and anything they might be able to sell. Several children have been killed when vehicles offload rubbish many die of disease. I've listed below most of the postings. You'll find plentyu more information in the comments

Mission accomplished. Well done. Now go.
