Bush’s ‘new’ Iraq bans all sports organizations

This video is called An Iraqi Refugee Reveals The Horrible Iraqi Truth.

Another video from the USA which used to be on the Internet used to say about itself:

Many months after Saddam Hussein’s government was toppled and its torture chambers unlocked, Iraqis are again being routinely beaten, hung by their wrists and shocked with electrical wires. This is why Iraqis hate US.

From Reuters:

“The FIFA [international football association] Executive Committee decided to suspend the Iraqi Football Association (IFA) as of today … following the governmental decree passed on May 20 which dissolved the Iraqi National Olympic Committee and all national sport federations, including the IFA,” FIFA said in a statement.

When Saddam Hussein was still in power, he and his sons were notorious for interfering in Iraqi sports organizations.

Now, apparently, George W. Bush’s ‘new’ Iraq has decided to out-dictator Saddam Hussein; not only in death tolls (see also here), numbers of prisoners, torture, worse situation for workers, worse situation for women, worse situation for gay people, etc. etc: but also in sports.
