"Humanitarian agencies reckon that there are 750,000 Iraqis in Jordan and 1.5 million in Syria. Fewer than 30,000 have returned, and many of them will simply join the ranks of the 2.4 million who are classified as "internally displaced persons." - Bobby Ghosh, Time, Dec. 24, 2007 issue

This humanitarian crisis began when Bush invaded Iraq - supposedly because of Saddam Hussein's non-existent weapons of mass destruction. Now there is mass misery. America should not be making war. We should be making peace and rendering aid.
