Stop genocide in Iraq!

More than a year has passed by since the barbaric invasion of Iraq by the US and the so-called "coalition forces". Witty words like WMD and Operation Iraqi Freedom have turned out to be blatant lies as all that we now see in Iraq is nothing but a systematic destruction of a civilisation and the mass execution of its people.

Imagine the state of people who have been betrayed and humiliated in front of the whole world and forced to live under the gun barrels of invaders and conspirators. How would one feel when every inch of her/his country has been defiled by the looters in the guise of foreign army? How would one feel when every day she/he has to attend mass funerals or to carry the dead bodies of their loved ones on their shoulders? How would one live when foreign invaders turn their peaceful country into a land with no security, no employment, no basic human amenities and turn the people into refugees in their own motherland? How would you feel if the same thing were done to Bangladesh. How would you react if such injustice were done against Bangladesh?

What is the future of Iraq? It is indeed the answer of 22nd century and the right answer should be able to predict the future of the world. In the mean time, safety will always be merely a dream for Iraqis as well as for us since the enemies are lurking in every corner ready to slash the innocence with claws of filth and hatred. The hope for peace is indeed in great peril!
