Nostalgia for the Time Before America Brought Insecurity, Chaos, and Massacres to Iraq

…workers in the Shi'ite holy city of Karbala uncovered remains that are thought to be part of a mass grave dating to a 1991 uprising against dictator Saddam Hussein
writes Qassim Abdul-Zahra as the Washington Times reporter discusses a time before America brought "insecurity", "chaos", and "massacres" to Iraq.
The remains -- discovered Monday -- were sent for testing yesterday in an effort to identify the bodies, said Rahman Mashawy, a Karbala police spokesman. He did not say how many bodies were found, but some reports put the number at 31.
