- Voices in the Wilderness has launched a new website which includes a gallery of Alan Pogue’s B/W documentary photos taken in Iraq.
The pictures I found most moving were:
- Sister Yvette shepards the 1st Communion class at Caldean Catholic Church; Basrah, Iraq. — This scene of a minority religion freely practicing its faith would be not exist within many of America’s allies, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and China. Why America chooses to invade Iraq while supporting other nationst hat do not allow their citizens to choose their own religion, is beyond me.
- Dr. Gasim Risun, holding his son, age 3 weeks.
He was wounded by a Dec. 1998 “Desert Fox” missile. — Note the date… 1998. Don’t ever believe anyone who says Persian Gulf War ended in 1991. It’s a lie.
