I'm in the middle of a bunch of work stuff, but someone just forwarded me this link to Ezra Klein. You can read the whole thing, but here is a taste of what we have accomplished in Iraq.
Suha has three children. She's married; her husband thinks that she cleans houses.
"I don't have money to take my kid to the doctor. I have to do anything that I can to preserve my child, because I am a mother," she says, explaining why she prostitutes herself.
Anger and frustration rise in her voice as she speaks.
"No matter what else I may be, no matter how off the path I may be, I am a mother!"
Karima, another woman forced into prostitution to feed her family, has five children. Her oldest son is old enough to work, but she doesn't allow it because of how dangerous Iraq is. Another woman lives with her three children in just one room. She hosts her "clients" in that room, with each child in a different corner, facing the wall.
More of the "Family Values" that we've seen from the Republicans for the last six years. Destroy their country, make Halliburton investors wealthier, and f*(# the families.
