End US Intervention in Iraq and Syria | Antiwar activists Marie Braun, Meredith Aby-Kierstead, Margaret Sarfehjooy
Braun: For most Americans, the Persian Gulf War ended on February 27, 1991. But the war did not end for the Iraqi people; it had only begun. The new war of sanctions, which did not allow Iraq to import sufficient medicine and food, or to repair the infrastructure, continued for 13 more long years. This sanctions war was a low intensity war; it killed an Iraqi child every 10 minutes; it killed 3500-5000 children every month; it resulted in emotional, mental and physical disabilities in more than a generation of Iraqi children.
