A Request from Iraqi Mothers
Maybe John McCain can help:
Millions of Iraqis are in a "disastrous" situation that is getting worse, with mothers appealing for someone to pick up the bodies littering the street so their children will be spared the horror of looking at them on their way to school, the international Red Cross said yesterday.
"The conflict in Iraq is inflicting immense suffering on the entire population," said a report by the International Committee of the Red Cross.
"Every day dozens of people are killed and many more wounded."
The 13-page report, titled "Civilians Without Protection: the ever-worsening humanitarian crisis in Iraq," was produced over the past two to three weeks, a spokesperson said.
