Iran’s definitive account of the Iraq war: Written by a female Iraqi Kurd

RAMIN MAZAHERI—But ho-hum, more misreporting on Iran. In other news: the sun rose this morning. This is just life for all socialist-inspired democratic revolutions – Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam, China, etc., have all had their sufferings ignored, their mistakes amplified and their successes denied.

The sanctions are working.
