The wasting of Iraq

``In 1258 the Mongol generals Hulagu and Guo Kan besieged and took the city of Baghdad. They murdered its inhabitants, burned its libraries, and ravished its lands.


For the average Iraqi, there is little difference between the Mongols and the United States. Both have laid waste to their country.''
