Freedom Just Can't Stop Marching
Rates of malnutrition among Iraqi children have doubled since the US invasion of Iraq:
The new figure translates to roughly 400,000 Iraqi children suffering from "wasting," a condition that takes in chronic diarrhea and dangerous deficiencies of protein.
Iraq's child malnutrition rate now roughly equals that of Burundi, an African nation torn by more than a decade of war. It is worse than rates in Uganda and Haiti.
