The Corner

From Your Favorite Saudi English-Language Daily

An entire generation of young Iraqi young men has been exterminated by million-dollar uranium-headed missiles, cluster bombs and “mothers of all bombs” over the past 13 years. Not since the European rape of Africa or the Indian wars in America has there been such an unequal conflict.

With a population more than 10 times as large as Iraq’s and a military budget that is 3,000 times greater, Washington and London are now distributing purple hearts and Victoria crosses for getting a starved and impoverished people to kneel and beg.

And the score has not been “evened,” at least not yet. Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and Iran must also meet the same fate and a million more “uncivilized Arabs” have to be sacrificed at the altar of “ground zero” before the idols of America, Israel and Britain can be propitiated.
