Iraq : Children have been the main victims of war


The desperate situation of Iraqi children has been largely created by the international community, the US and UK in particular. Iraq has been exposed to: 
* two decades of sanctions and punitive reparation payments which have hit the most vulnerable members of society;
* the destruction of vital civilian infrastructure through targeted bombing;
* the collapse of state apparatus after the 2003 invasion;
* continuous military violence and the opening of the country to other fundamentalist forces;
* a constitution founded on ethnic and religious division and US/UK support of sectarian and misogynist factions; corrupt governance
