A whole generation has been raised on the bitter seeds of the Gulf War. The demise of Saddam will come sooner or later. But the people of Iraq, many under the age of 15, have not only had to pay for his crimes, but have also had to endure more than a decade of punitive sanctions.

The result is a Third World country among the poorest in the world. Still living under the long shadow of Saddam's secret police, the population is isolated and terrorized. Added to this are the deprivations imposed on them by 12 years of international sanctions, a ruined economy, a broken infrastructure, unsanitary water and, now, fear of yet another war with the United States.

While Saddam is feared, reviled and wished gone, America is blamed for creating him, and hated for betraying the Iraqi people. As the war clouds loom, this sentiment runs very deep.
