http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/2774951.stm I am glad that this story is being carried but I am disappointed that the culpability of the US/UK is carefully edited out. The 'shattered health system' is a deliberate policy achieved by our governments through the Gulf War and the sanctions. Of course, at a time when Tony Blair is seeking to point the blame at Saddam Hussein and demonise him, it would be very inconvenient if you carried a story which in any way hinted at the true cause of the suffering in Iraq and the exodus of many of its people.
