What Is Happening to the Children of Iraq?

I suppose I’m extra-sensitive to issues involving children because of the birth of twin grandchildren this weekend. They arrived perfectly formed, all limbs present and operable.

I typically check Informed Comment each morning, and there, near the top of Juan’s comments for the day was this: The Reuters Headline Says It All - 'Iraq Children Living Without Limbs Lack Support'.

I have the article printed and ready to read, but I’m not sure I’m ready to read it. I do know that most of the children described in the article and the child in the photo arrived just like my grandchildren did, with all limbs accounted for.
