The article shows how the Empire intentionally went about destroying the Iraqi nation. It seems to me that this is a human rights and war crime of the highest order.
...men and women with qualifications including doctors, teachers, scientists, journalists, university professors, artists, and engineers were among the first victims of a system that seems to have been created in order to destroy Iraq’s institutions. They were the people with the qualifications and capacity to help rebuild a post-war country. Without them, no nation would survive.Why would anyone commit such crimes? Surely, the control of oil wouldn't justify this level of violence. Given that Zionist inspired neoconservatives were hugely involved in the war against Iraq, the most plausible explanation is that these acts were performed to eliminate any future threat to the state of Israel.
