: But: I wish today's Iraqis would ever had the chance to profit from such a "nonsense".
: Right now, they are dying from the "non-nonsense" of destroyed water works.
: +++ Await a genocide:
xxx WHAT DO YOU MEAN, "AWAIT"? What do you think is happening right now & has been happening for a long time?
: More than 300,000 persons (mostly kids) are to die in the next 2 months from waterborne diseases such as diarrhoe, cholera and typhoid.
: +++ More to come - or better said: more to go
: +++ Sadie,
: So far I never heard from any Assyrian/Chadean/Syriac etc. any consideration of that looming genocidal disaster.
: What about you?
xxx Why do you think I post all those articles from the WHO & ICRC? I'm keeping an eye on the health situation as best I can & putting the info here on the forum for others who are concerned to read. So, yes, I'm considering the situation there a lot. & I'm hoping a lot of preventive measures will be taken by the right (good) people so that a genocide doesn't happen. It's not an accomplishment to do these things, but it's concern. & by "preventive measures," I mean speedily rebuilding the water treatment plants & electrical power grids, restocking medicines/vaccines or taking stock of what medicines/vaccines are available to the public, & setting up a nationalized health care system that is *effective,* among other things.
