Ces Arabes!…in the Southern detention camp, there were over 900 kids, aged between 7 and 16. They were used as human shields should the ”insurgents” attack the prison…convinced that these kids had inside information on the Resistance. Mind you this is not the first time I hear such stories. Seymour Hersh did blow the whistle a while back when he corroborated Ahmad’s story…that the Pentagon has videotapes of boys being sodomized at Abu Ghraib prison. “The worst is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking”, he said.

More corroborating statements concerning the sexual torture of children at Abu Ghraib were made by the surviving prisoners themselves….“I saw…fucking a kid, his age would be about 15 years. The kid was hurting very bad and they covered all the doors with sheets. Then when I heard the screaming I climbed the door because on top it wasn’t covered and I saw —who was wearing the military uniform putting his dick in the little kid’s ass. I couldn’t see the face of the kid because his face wasn’t in front of the door. And a female soldier was taking pictures. The sodomizer—I think he is —because of his accent, and he was not skinny or short, and he acted like a homosexual (gay). And that was in cell #23 as best as I remember.”

The following is another testimony of sexual torture of Iraqi children from a statement provided by Thaar Salman Dawod, Detainee #150427, on January 17, 2004: “I saw lots of people naked for a few days getting punished in the first days of Ramadan. They came with two boys naked and they were cuffed together face to face and Grainer was beating them and a group of guards were watching and taking pictures from top and bottom and there were three female soldiers laughing at the prisoners. The prisoners, two of them, were children. I don’t know their names.”

I personally remember about a year ago, I too, saw something on youtube which was quickly removed. It was an interview with an Iraqi doctor filmed in a hospital in Baghdad. I tried finding this video again to no avail. I remember a particular scene that will never leave my mind. A militia man, an armed Shiite, brought in a boy not older than 12 with a huge open blistered chancre/sore on his buttock. The doctor asked the boy if the sore was painful, the boy’s face was blood shot red and stuttered and said yes with his eyes.. He was terrified. The doctor then said, after this particular medical consultation – ” We see so many horror stories, and we know what is taking place but we dare not ask questions. The armed militia man had obviously kidnapped and detained the boy you just filmed.”

Since, a few reports came out, confirming that children as young as 7 were detained and tortured and raped /sodomized by both the American forces and the Shiite militias. The official figure is around 2000 kids, I know the figure is much higher. And I need to add that these kids as it just so happens are children belonging to Iraqi/ Arab Sunni families. The latest in the series of your brave liberation is a video that can be watched here. I have already covered in previous posts the subjection of Iraqi children to all kinds of abuse from trafficking, to pedophile rings, to sex slavery, to drugs, to street life, to lack of every basic necessity, to orphanages that are more like torture prisons, to destitution, to poverty, to disease, to abandonment and neglect. 5 million orphans is your trophy of Liberation – civilized ladies and gentlemen. But today I am specifically referring to Iraqi children detained and tortured by the ”official” authorities – the Americans and the sectarian Iranian Shiite government.

And here I want to stress..Namely that the Americans and the puppet sectarian Iranian government with its armed militias are detaining, sodomizing and torturing Iraqi kids. They are sodomizing, raping and torturing Iraqi children. They are sodomizing, raping and torturing Iraqi childhood. Add this to your liberating democracy of 5 million orphans, and you will get a full picture of what Iraqi childhood is all about. Not mentioning the million of Iraqi refugee kids living in tents or in neighboring countries, humiliated, insulted, lacking, with no access to schooling or medical treatment, or prostituting themselves…This is your ”Freedom and Democracy – Ladies and Gentlemen.” ….
