Two years after U.S.-led invasion, malnutrition rising among Iraq's children:<br><br>
"Since the March 2003 invasion, malnutrition among children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years old has grown from 4 percent to 7.7 percent, said Jon Pedersen, deputy managing director of the Oslo, Norway-based Fafo Institute for Applied Social Science, which conducted the survey.<br><br>
"The U.N. Development Program and Iraq's Central office for Statistics and Information Technology also took part in the survey.<br><br>
"It's in the level of some African countries," Pedersen told The Associated Press. "Of course, no child should be malnourished, but when we're getting to levels of 7 to 8 percent, it's a clear sign of concern."<br><br>

Worth pondering: we’ve ponied up $200 billion, 'sacrificed' over 1200 lives, killed over ten thousand Iraqi civillians, handed the al Qaeda network a boondogle of a recruiting tool and pissed off a chuck of our friends to remove Saddam Hussein and now we find out 400,000 Iraqi <b>children</b> are suffering from acute malnutrition.<br><br>
Just how do Dubya and the rest of these pricks sleep?

They don't let their beautiful minds dwell on it.<br><br>
God will provide, and if He doesn't, that must be His will? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
