We-and that is ALL Americans, have left Iraq as a Total Disaster
Two of our recent "presidents" George "W" and Obama have followed the path of Adolf Hitler, in making unprovoked attacks against nations that have done us no harm! Take the sorry and despicable occupation of Iraq. Our occupation more than doubled poverty, and sickness, leaving that country as a total disaster. George W tried to connect Iraq to the destruction of the several buildings of our world trade center. As a former US Army Captain, and Advisory Team Leader in two of the hottest combat areas of Vietnam (The "Iron Triangle", near Saigon, and Ngo Trang, a few miles north of Kontum), after I served in combat for the 1/10 Cavalry Squadron between Pleiku and Banmethuot, where dodging enemy Ak-47 bullets had become a necessary hobby. But I digress: Iraq had nothing to do with the destruction of our World Trade Center buildings, and the loss of American lives, as I have so amply demonstrated in other postings on this site. If you will order the DVD "911 Mysteries, Part 1, Demolitions, at www.911mysteries.com", you will know the truth, and the truth shall make you free! But I digress: Please read the article by Adil E. Shamoo, on Foreign Policy in Focus. In UN-HABITAT, an agency of the United Nations, you will find a 218-page report entitled State of the World's Cities, 2010-2011. It is full of statistics, defining slum dwellers as those living in urban centers without "durable structures to protect them from climate, sufficient living area, sufficient access to water, access to sanitation facilities, and freedom from eviction. Almost intentionally hidden is one shocking fact about urban Iraqi populations. For the past few decades, prior to the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, the percentage of the urban population living in slums in Iraq hovered just below 20%. Today, that percentage has risen to 53%. There is an old proverb which says: "Treason never prospers, but for one reason: When treason prospers, none dare call it treason".
