Talk:Investigation wanted into the murders of Iraqi academics

Active discussions

Is this fabric for a new story?Edit

"I think it's part of the plan for the country's destruction"...coming from an Iraqi doctor, it can't be written off as a "conspiracy theory"..or can it? Is it possible that the brightest minds in America knew exactly what would happen in Iraq? After all...Powell did tell Bush "you break it...you'll own it"...maybe we wanted to own it? is there a new story here..."I think it's part of the plan for the country's destruction"...?

I don't think you can write it off as a conspiracy theory, but it is the opinion of someone who has despaired of the situation within the country being solved in the short-term. Figures rather than anecdotal reports on how many are leaving are the one thing I'd look to add to this. --Brian McNeil / talk 22:32, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
The issue is "the plan for the country's destruction" rather than how many are leaving; and this wikipedia article[1] has explained virtually everything going on in the world today to my satisfaction. Neutralizer 02:40, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
Are there any sources that are newer? I do not see how this qualifies as being in February. Jason Safoutin 02:48, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
There are lots of sources that are older: w:List of killed, threatened or kidnapped Iraqi academics. Getting "primary" material (in the wikipedia sense of online references which are written in a reasonably factual and objective style and must have been through at least some sort of review process in order to get published) is naturally difficult regarding Iraqi academics - Iraq still has only a few tens of thousands of internet users (last time i looked - while Iran has 7.5 million), but there are some sources around - look for the killed academics' names with links and see the Sources section at the bottom - also, the wikipedia page has been stable for a month, so it seems that there's no easily available information discrediting the claim that a systematic campaign to kill Iraqi academics/professionals is being carried out.

invasion was wrongEdit

We should have ignored the fact that saddam broke the 1991 cease fire agreement, ignored the UN resolutions, decieved the weapons inspectors, and supported suicide bombers in israel. We should have let saddam stay in power, and the murder of innocent Iraqi's continue... because their education system would still be good...
