The phrase “mass graves” in Iraq has long been associated with former leader Saddam Hussein. But not anymore. In U.S.-administered and occupied Iraq people now talk of ‘Bush’s mass graves.’
More and more mass graves are being unearthed with hundreds of bodies, most of them unidentified, but all of them dug in the post-Saddam era which Iraqis associate with President Bush and his occupation troops.
One such mass grave is the one discovered recently in Mahmodiya which, according to Hareth al-Ubaidi, a human rights activist and Member of Parliament holds “hundreds of bodies and bears all the marks of Saddam Hussein but does not belong to him.”
Wasn’t this one of the things the Bush regime paraded as a reason to illegally invade Iraq?
