The Continuing Oppression of Iraqis

Baghdad Burning has another great post, this time about the rise of repressive fundamentalism during the US occupation (a story about a shop owner who loves football but was forced to take down his Brazilian flag by local clerics).

The first justification for the invasion didn't pan out (WMD).

The second justfication was to liberate the Iraqi people from a brutal dictator... but life is far worse for them under the US occupation.

I don't really have anything to add on the topic. I just feel that we have to all keep pressing the cause of the Iraqi people in the hopes that the US government will do right by them, or at least stop doing such terrible wrong.
