Iraq: Seven years later – the legacy of invasion
Inside this issue:
Seven years after the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq, Hadani Ditmars returns to a land she last visited in 2003. With more than a million people dead in the wake of post-invasion violence, an infrastructure in ruins despite $53 billion in aid, and a corrupt Government whose human rights abuses echo the terror of Saddam years, the prognosis is bleak.
But there are signs of life amidst the devastation. The national theatre has re-opened, women continue to defy oppressive fundamentalism, and young people dream of a better future, where a renewed sense of national identity trumps sectarian divisions. Join the New Internationalist on a dramatic journey of return.
