t r u t h o u t - Destruction Easier Than Reconstruction

t r u t h o u t - Destruction Easier Than Reconstruction: "While politicians deliberate over Iraq's future, Iraqis are dealing with the reality of the present. They are looking at the debris of a country where reconstruction has come to a standstill.

They are also looking at a situation in which the capital of the oil-rich country has been stricken recently by a dire shortage of gas and kerosene.

Iraqis in Baghdad had been receiving 12 to 13 hours of electricity a day on average over recent months. Over the past few weeks they say supply has fallen to just a few hours a day.

'We have no services at all,' Usama Asa'ad, a 31 year-old mechanic told IPS. 'Our electricity is on only one or two hours a day.'"

Bush has lost Iraq.
