Rapes in Iraq
By Micah Halpern

Friday February 23, 2007

I've Been Thinking:

Horrible accusations of rape are flying around Iraq, fanning the flames of an already explosive environment.

Iraq's Shiite-dominated police have been accused of perpetrating several rapes, including the rape of a 50 year old women and her two daughters.
The Sunni population is in an uproar.
Sources say that hundreds of Sunnis have volunteered as suicide bombers expressly to wreak havoc and revenge on the Shiites.

The hatred between the Shiites and Sunnis of Iraq continues to escalate.
Unless and until this visceral hatred is curbed the chance of establishing a central government is minimal.
Unless and until this visceral hatred is curbed Iraq will never be transformed into a state that respects law and maintains order.
