The US and UK are denying reports that the war in Iraq has lead to massive food shortages. These food shortages are being blamed for the sahrp increase in malnourished children in Iraq. The number of malnourished under fives in the country has almost doubled since the US led invasion of 2003.
A UN report last week said malnutrition in under-fives had almost doubled since the US-led invasion of 2003.

The UK government says hunger levels fell between 2000 when a Unicef survey was carried out and 2004 when the Iraqi Statistical Office did its own survey

About 8% of Iraqi children are now going hungry compared with 4% under former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, Mr Ziegler told the UN Human Rights Commission meeting in Geneva

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

There are so many for and against arguments about the Iraq war, but no matter what our reasons were for invading, wether it be oil, weapons of mass desruction or genuinely wanting to free the Iraqi people from their evil dictator, innocent children do not deserve to be starving.

The figures in this article show that whilst in Saddams so called evil regime, the youth of Iraq were being fed alot better than they are now.

The coalition can carry on with the occupation of Iraq but Iraq's future, the children, must be cared for properly if they want Iraq to have a future.

The U.S. and UK are there on the ground in Iraq while the UN pulled out after getting attacked, so I don't see why anyone would believe the UN report over what the U.S. and UK are saying.

Really? Funny you should say that but the UN was right all along about there being NO weapons of mass deception, erm I mean distruction.

Anyone who believes the UK/US version of events is kidding themselves and Naive to boot.

"The First casualty of War is the Truth"

The US/UK is just as corrupt as the UN, they would be more corrupt if the UN didn't admit tin pot dictators, but the US is going in that direction anyhow so it doesn't matter. All Politicians are lying pieces of #. Period.

Funny you should say "weapons of mass deception", as that is exactly what Tony Blair said when giving a speech to UK Troops in Iraq.

Freudian slip anyone?
