War On Women-Iraq

It does not matter who did this, it was done by men against women. It was a deliberate attempt to intimidate women from being active in public life. So much for the liberation of women in Iraq. So much for Bush's surge, all it has produced is a surge of ethnic cleansing and attacks on women. Foward to the past, backwards to the future.

Nuri al-Maliki, the Iraqi prime minister, has said "terrorists and Saddamists" were behind the bombing at al-Mustansiriya University.
At least 65 people were killed when a car and a suicide bomber exploded outside the University on Tuesday.
More than 100 people were injured in the blast, mostly students and staff leaving the university.
Al-Maliki said: "They [those responsible] carried out an ugly crime against humanity targeting the innocent students of Al-Mustansiriya University."
An official at the university said: "The majority of those killed [in the explosion] are female students who were on their way home."
