What has US-launched war brought Iraq?

What has US-launched war brought Iraq?: " Massive anti-war demonstrations swept the world to mark the third anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq, which hit the headlines of media worldwide on March 20. Tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets in Australia, Japan, and Britain to strongly demand the end of the war and withdrawal of foreign troops from the war-ravaged country."

Three years have elapsed since the U.S. launched the war on Iraq, people now began to look back at the war and posed such a question: “What has the United States brought Iraq and the world at large?”

Saddam's regime was overthrown. However, the war still rages on. At least 35,000 Iraqis, more than 2,300 American soldiers and about 109 journalists have been killed in Iraq to date. What’s worse, escalating sectarian conflicts are bringing Iraq to the brink of a civil war.

The placards held by demonstrators explicitly reflected the opinion of people around the globe, "No occupation of Iraq", “Stop the War”, “Murderer USA”, “The war is illegal”. All these voices are echoed by Chinese netizens on the Xinhuanet Online Forum:

-- Yes to peace, no to war!

-- This is an immoral war that has plunged the Iraqi people into a miserable life. We are strongly opposed to this wicked war! Let’s pray for peace! Let us live in a world of peace!

--We oppose Bush’s policy on Iraq! Now, two-thirds of Americans share the view that the Bush Administration handles the Iraq issue inappropriately.

--The misery the war has brought the Iraqi people is beyond description. It is the Iraqi people who are the biggest victims.

--Without UN approval, US-led forces invaded Iraq, a sovereign nation, under the pretext of “safeguarding human rights”. The war killed thousands of young Americans who should not have gone there, as well as an even greater number of innocent Iraqis.

--The U.S., which claimed itself to be the strongest country in the world, has failed to conquer a small country like Iraq after three years of war. This indicates that people can never be conquered.

--In fact, it is the U.S. interest groups that launched the Iraq war. Consequently, American people are now burdened with this dirty war and the whole world is indignant, too. The desire of a fierce animal without restraint is horrible!

--It is heartbroken to look at the crying little Iraqi girl! I believe that no people of any country are willing to live under the iron heel of a power like the United States.

--The current terrible situation in Iraq shows that the US is not a savior. Even with the toppling of Saddam's regime, the Iraqi people didn’t enjoy “democracy and freedom” promised by America. On the contrary, their basic living conditions they had had before the war have been deprived thoroughly!
