Anyone who continues to doubt that Saddam Hussien needed to be removed from power in Iraq has no concience.
Iraqis Dig Up Mass Graves Near Holy City
Sabah Amir Mohammed al-Tamimi was 19. So was Amna Ali.
Their remains, complete with ID cards, were dug up with the bodies of 69 others Saturday and Sunday from a shallow mass grave about 13 miles northwest of Najaf, one of Shiite Muslims' holiest cities. Bullet casings also were found in and near the graves.
Iraqis exhumed bodies with shovels and their bare hands, and they expected to find more. Others were searching the area around Najaf for additional mass grave sites they believe are in the area. At least one smaller site, guarded by U.S. Marines, turned up a few miles away.
Go read it all and weep for the lives lost while the world stood by for so many years before taking the necessary steps to remove this megalomaniacal tyrant from power.
