Unborn Children Found In a Mass Grave

It isn't new to anybody that Saddam's regime executed many Iraqis. The evidence was found in the many mass graves discovered after the collapse of his regime. But, there are few who know that he executed many women, children and unborn babies. They probably know, but they're in denial.

The newly discovered mass grave in Hatra, Iraq is slowly making the headlines today. A BBC News report states:

US-led investigators have located nine trenches in Hatra containing hundreds of bodies believed to be Kurds killed during the repression of the 1980s.

The skeletons of unborn babies and toddlers clutching toys are being unearthed, the investigators said.


The body of one woman was found still clutching a baby. The infant had been shot in the back of the head and the woman in the face.

"The youngest foetus we have was 18 to 20 foetal weeks," said US investigating anthropologist P Willey.

"Tiny bones, femurs - thighbones the size of a matchstick."

Laci Peterson's murder case is still making the headlines in America. But news reports like above are hard to find in our media. People's views are so fogged with the pleasure of declaring Iraq's peace a failure that they don't want to know about these discoveries. Those are the same people who closed their eyes and ears when Saddam was killing the Iraqi population slowly.
