That war

What I want to give you is just the headline for an article published on Alternet:

"Women Are Being Beheaded for Taking Their Veil Off": Honor Killings On Rise in Iraq

Let it not be forgotten that Saddam Hussein protected the rights of women. For all his tyranny, his was a secular state.

The article is an eye-opener if you want to click through and read it.
