Swords and PlowsharesBy
“They shall beat their swords into plowshares” – Isaiah II
This week, we look at both the swords and the plowshares in Iraq, and in at least one instance, how the transformation between the two occurs.
The Week In Review brings you up to date on the situation in Iraq. Then, Eva Barboni examines the latest Gallup poll about WMDs and the popularity of the Iraq war.
We also hear a story of two soldiers who went to Iraq with good intentions, and then discovered it was sometimes hard to pick out their enemy from among the Iraqis they were trying to help.
Also contributing to the humanitarian effort in Iraq is an NGO called “Women to Women International.” We learn all about their mission, and why you can expect to see a burgeoning carpentry trade among Iraqi women.
Finally, we bring you Iraq 101: Saddam’s Army, a brief history of the Iraqi military.
