The USA targeted the civilians' water supply
In its vicious, murderous and illegal attack on Iraq, the United states of America targeted the water supply in Baghdad. This is not a military target and as such, the wanton destruction of the system constitutes a war crime.
UNICEF, the UN Children's Fund, has claimed that up to 50% of the network is still destroyed or damaged. Work is being undertaken to repair the system and to provide 800,000 litres of fresh water to those areas which need it the most.
Meanwhile, the food supply to the 27 million Iraqis previously supported by their government has been restored by the World Food Programme, after an interruption of six weeks.
The Iraqi people have suffered considerable hardships at the hands of the US administration. Thousands were murdered by the incompetent and inefficient military machine, written off as "collateral damage" with a callous disregard for human life. Their homes destroyed, their water and food supplies cut off, their cultural institutions ransacked, these people thank the Americans for what they have done in mass demonstrations of hatred and defiance.
The pretext for this war was Weapons of Mass Destruction. Where are they?
