Jailed Iraqi Children


More than 100 children held in a prison celebrated their freedom as US marines rolled into northeast Baghdad amid chaotic scenes which saw civilians loot weapons from an army compound, a US officer said ... "The children had been imprisoned because they had not joined the youth branch of the Baath party," he alleged. "Some of these kids had been in there for five years."

I wonder how all those who have been arguing against an American-led invasion of Iraq will justify something like this. No doubt, they'll just call it "imperialist propaganda" or some such nonsense.
