Jeremy Bowen, BBC News, Iraq war 20 years on: How invasion plunged country into decades of chaos, 20 March 2023 “It is a sign of how bad the past 20 years have been that Saddam nostalgia is well established in Iraq, not just among his own Sunni community. People complain that at least you knew where you were with the old dictator. He was an equal opportunities killer of anyone he saw as an enemy, including his own son-in-law.” A comprehensive and incisive report. Mr Bowen has also been on camera and on the radio today talking about this ‘anniversary’. Recommended
