The things they say – 28th June

Iyad Allawi, 28 June 2004

There are times when I despair of the apathy to the bloodshed taking place in Iraq today. It seems that things have been so bad for so long, that we no longer notice when another suicide bomber kills another half-dozen people. And still the pro-war half of the Parliamentary Labour Party insist the invasion was the right thing to do because ‘we gave them democracy’. It looks like anarchy from where I’m sitting.
