American soldiers, who has been ransoming economic and cultural wealth of
Iraq, calles these attacks "shock and awe" and now they have directed their
attacks to the Iraqi women. Many Iraqi women who are being arrested under

of the invasion explained in full awe how 40, 50 year old women were used as
the items of sexual fanthasies of the American soldiers. In the article,

out of their homes and had been deserted like a bag/kulce (kulce is a
special bag to keep gold in) at the foot (postal) (postal means war boots)
of the invasion soldiers.
