Stop the Executions of Iraqi women!


solidarityiraq.blogspot.com

126 professional women who have worked for the previous regime have been sentenced to death by the Iraqi government. It is expected that the executions will be carried out before the Muslim feast of pilgrimage (in 2 weeks time). Their only crime appear to be serving under the previous regime.

Oh how liberating it must be for Iraqis to be blessed with the presence of the Axis Of The Willing.

When I went to school, this place was known as the cradle of civilisation. Now, another 126 people with higher university degrees are soon to disappear from Iraq.
Such a bright future we've given them.... who cares hey?...

Me thinks (hopefully) that this is a shock terror strategy used to deter future employment of women, Hopefully the sentence will be deferred in some way,
I am not saying its right but that's there culture and that's the way they do there business..

So we invade the county for the right to execute woman who were just doing their job? And soldiers are dying for that!

No one should be held accountable for what their boss did. These people haven't commited any crime.

And lets not just focus on the women. I wonder how many men have been executed since we 'liberated' the country although they committed no crime?

These women are being used as examples to other women in their
country.Putting women back in their place and punishing those that
try to better their sex in a barbaric,male-dominated society.

I'm a christian and the man is head of the household.Christian women
can be educated and have a home and career.In these countries,women
usually have a minimal education and are kept inside their homes.

I don't think it's right to say it's their culture foxhound...
It doesn't seem to have been the case prior to our invasion.
At one stage Iraq apparently had more doctors in hospitals per patient than England.
Since the Axis of the Willing's invasion, doctors, academics, scientists, intellectuals etc have been killed wholesale or spooked out of the country.
Women held high positions.
Opposing Shia Iranian interests have been permitted to take over.
The whole country has gone to crap and oil interests are just loving it... not to mention military interests.

Lets see if the MSM take any interest in this; I somehow doubt they will pursue a story which might help Iraq. I've sent it to a bunch of media in Australia.
This is obviously meant as a message to women to stay in the kitchen (if they have one)... problem is there are so many widows in Iraq now that they can't even feed their kids... and many young women that are married are scared to have babies because of the heightened incidents of deformities thanks to the 'Depleted Uranium' America and UK have been dumping on them.. but the MSM isn't interested in that either.

And all because of WMD.... Something Clinton Dreamt up and Bush pushed and we went along with it... and the idiots we live with primarily worry about why people want to immigrate to our land.

The “monster” Saddam Hussein was a secular leader—a Socialist. Not only did he equalize the status of women, he protected the rights of Christians and every other vulnerable group in that land. Iraq was damned near a “First world” Nation under Saddam.

If the man was brutal, it was because of all the religious controllers and traitors trying to bring him and his Nation down by any means. We can see today—with the sell out of the Iraqi people’s wealth and the growing Sharia stuff-- what he was fighting against.

I will never understand—if these wars are a struggle against “radical” Islam, why the only secular Arab Nation in the world had to be crushed by the West.

Thanks for posted this thread. I hope something can be done for those women.
I haven't looked into how to star a post yet.

"Secular" leader...interested in the rights of women...?

If I remember rightly, his two sons were very interested in the rights of women. They took whoever they wanted from the streets for their own pleasure and fed them to saddam's lions once they had had their fill - fully sanctioned by daddy!

This country needs to rebuild...and quickly...women are at the core of that. There is a distinct danger that a radicalised, forgotten generation, who are angry and uneducated will provide a fertile breeding ground for terrorism.

Only educating and empowering women can change that society.

I am disgusted by the current regime in this respect.

two things, Saddam was a muderous homicidal tyrant and extreme Islam is equally as unpalatable.

Let us not dress up the previous regime just because we were stupid enough to remove him

He was a despicable human being of the highest order, but we still shouldn't have interefered

mamabeth should also note
Iran was much more of a secular democracy too until UK and USA launched operation AJAX in the 50's, after then PM Mossadeq nationalised the oil industry and kicked out AngloPersian Oil (now known as BP)
The very chauvinist Saudi Arabia is also 'our best friend'.
USA supported Taliban in Afghanistan.
So there's no real evidence to show that the Axis of the Willing have done anything to suppress religious extremists; in fact, their efforts have created the contrary situation. But a lot of citizens from the Axis of the Willing are quick to forgive our leaders and argue that these were just 'mistakes'.
I have more faith in them however... they aren't that dumb.

No offense, but I can't converse with people who take broad points and try to narrow the discussion down to microisms. That's because people who do that are not interest in coming to an understanding or the truth of a matter.
They are just propagandizing.
What do what Saddam's sons may--or may not have done--have to do with the broader reality of what has happened to Iraq?
People say Bush murdered and tortured people when he was young. Is the entire U.S. supposed to be invaded and robbed because of what one person may or may not have done?

Don't answer. Discussion is over on my part.

Have you ever been to Iraq? No, dont answer...because I know you have not.

I have - and I work with the people. It's a mission of mine to improve the lot of women in that country, through healthcare and microfinance.

Any more from the 'corner'?

Sorry about the confusion

Saddam was a tyrant and extremist Islam is no better- I will not sugar coat Saddam's regime any more than I feel we had any "right" to get involved.

We had no "right" to get involved, but I still understood that he indulged in mass murder and ethnic cleansing and surpressed all forms of dissent with torture and execution

No problem.
I appreciate your thread.

If we're going to question the effect of Saddam's leadership of Iraq perhaps we should compare it to what the USA and the rest of the Axis of the Willing have done for Iraq.
On a loss/benefit ratio it's quite plain for a blind man to see that the greatest harm by far has been caused by the actions of primarily USA.

As if USA did more good for Iraq including it's women than Saddam.

Chillpill, you are apparently well informed; perhaps you could give us your take on why Saddam reinstated polygamy in Iraq, even though he prohibited it through most of his leadership period.
Do you believe the intent and effect were to help or oppress women?????

Does anyone have an original source on this story? Court citing? All I can find are a ring of blogs each quoting one another.

I am going to file this under Urban Legend until I see something credible.

Hopefully nobody else in this thread is as confused about who they are talking to as I am. I was right the first time about who I posted to and corrected myself incorrectly.
Anyway, don't want to derail anymore than I already have.

What are you talking about? I've never heard about anything like this. Do you have any proof or links you can post about this?

I've lived in Texas my entire life, almost 34 years, and I've never heard any stories about Dubya torturing and murdering people when he was young.
