: In the first place, water is becomming a scrace necessity in that region. The United States made a point of destroying water treatment plants and sewage treatment plants...a fatal combination. It isn't just a lack of medicines and ambulances and clinics and hospitals the people suffer from, especially the most vulnerable...the children. But when there isn't clean water...or any water, disease and filth and stench make all the other problems that much worse.
: Turkey has been damming the rivers and diverting water...with the full encouragement of the United States, I am sure.
xxx I can't believe anyone would be so mean, so manipulative, as to imply that this makes a good excuse to attack Iraq. The Turkish government is notoriously inhumane... it should be the one that is held accountable for this. & yes, the US gov't just loves its "ally," the Turkish government.
