I do not think enough people know about this: The Amiriyah Shelter Massacre.
I visited this shelter while living in Baghdad, around 2002. I was still in school back then and it was a school trip (mind you, it was the Baghdad International School, which was a UN school - not a propaganda trip.)
Of course, there weren't any bodies lying around or anything. However, you could see the silhouettes of people who were burned alive against the walls; what I will never forget was the frame of a mother holding her child, and a pair of handprints. The silhouettes were the melted skin of the victims.
In total, over 400 people died in this shelter. Nearly all of those people were women and children.
I found a couple of videos on youtube (1 - 2) with pictures. I warn you though, these are partly very graphic. Also, someone started a blog with a description of what happened.
As an Iraqi, I'm not asking for sympathy or pity. I just want you to see what happened in Iraq even in 1991, which is nothing compared to what is happening in Iraq since 2003.
