Twelve years of sanctions and seven years of occupation have taken their toll as Iraqis struggle with wrecked infrastructure and continuing insecurity.[...]The number of Iraqis without access to adequate water supplies has risen from 50% to 70% since 2003.80% of people in Iraq do not have safe access to effective sanitation.The most critical water shortage since Babylonian times is threatening to leave up to 2 million people in the south of Iraq without drinking water. Rampant waterborne diseases and the lack of electricity and clean drinking water have led Iraqis to take to the streets in Baghdad chanting: ‘No water, no electricity in the country of oil and the two rivers.’
from Post-Invasion Iraq - The Facts [a small sampling]
I'm sure it's just a coincidence that the "end" of the war in Iraq (actually, just an Obama campaign stunt, and of course, a big lie) took place almost exactly 20 years after the initial invasion of Iraq was launched.
The culprits behind this mess are Satan's minions in a wide variety of disguises on all sides, and the victims of this "war" include the majority of the US military involved there, who have been used and abused by those running the war.
The overarching goal has always been to create Hell on Earth by destroying civilization in the guise of the Fundy version of the Apocalypse, as part of the Eighth Sphere agenda. This draw-down is just the beginning of another phase of this experiment in driving the human spirit out of the world (part of creating hopelessness is to give hope, and then to dash it), with the findings to be applied to the rest of the world as civilization collapses. I imagine that a large part of the American embassy-city is reserved for the same Reesian variety of psychiatrists which helped to determine how much not-torture (as in "America does 'not-torture'") someone can take before dying. Your tax dollars at work.
