From Gaza to Iraq: Stop the slaughter

Just about everything the millions of anti-war marchers around the globe predicted five years ago on 15 February 2003 has come true.

Iraq has been turned into a sectarian prison. In Baghdad alone 100,000 sections of concrete wall impose sectarian division. The bare figures of a million dead and four million displaced only suggest the agony of a country torn apart by foreign rule.

Afghanistan is a hidden catastrophe. The 2001 invasion was sold to us as humanitarian intervention. Now Oxfam and the Red Cross report that the occupation is itself causing a humanitarian crisis.

The warmongers used to talk of liberating women – now Afghanistan has the second highest rate of maternal death in childbirth in the world. Life expectancy is down to 44, and health provision is virtually non-existent. Not surprisingly, the occupiers are bogged down in heavy fighting.

Even the most delusional of the war’s few supporters don’t dare claim the world has become safer.
