I urge you to take whatever action you can in relation to the following:

I understand that 126 professional women who have worked for the previous regime have been sentenced to death by the Iraqi government, and that it is expected that the executions will be carried out before the Muslim feast of pilgrimage (in 2 weeks time). Their only crime appear to be serving under the previous regime. Amongst those to be executed the ex Head Nuclear Energy Centre and the ex minister of Work and Social Affairs. These proposed executions should be stopped immediately.

end of the so-called coalition of the willing in Iraq?

Chelsea J. Carter BAGHDAD THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The war in Iraq was truly an American-only effort Saturday after Britain and Australia, the last of its international partners, pulled out.

Little attention was paid in Iraq to what effectively ended the so-called coalition of the willing, with the U.S. — as the leader of Multi-National Force, Iraq — letting the withdrawals pass without any public demonstration.

The quiet end of the coalition was a departure from its creation, which saw then-U.S. President George W. Bush court countries for support before and after the March 2003 invasion.

“We're grateful to those partners who contributed in the past and we look forward to working with them in the future,” military spokesman Army Lieutenant-Colonel Mark Ballesteros told The Associated Press in an e-mail.
