Comments are also being made in Iraq. “The invasion and destruction of Iraq is pursuing Bush and this is the voice of his conscience,” said Iraqi journalist Omar al-Janabi.
“Yes, it was an unjust and cruel attack that will be a nightmare for you,” he wrote.
The United States invaded Iraq in March 2003, accusing Saddam Hussein’s government of possessing chemical weapons that could not be recovered.
