FOUR years ago this week, bombs began to rain on Baghdad marking the start of a bloody preemptive strike. The US president promised to "shock and awe" Saddam's Iraq but managed more than that when he sanctioned an illegal invasion of the sovereign nation. This time around, on the fourth anniversary, tens of thousands of people from around the world will be protesting against the "failed" strategy which caused untold devastation to Iraq and its citizens. In the US alone, there have been protest marches demanding that the US get out of Iraq. This time, it has a special significance given that 40 years ago, in 1967, a similar historic antiwar march was held to protest against the Vietnam War.
