Salon this morning has an article on the looming humanitarian crisis in Iraq. Most aid agencies interviewed in the article insisted that they were not adequately prepared for a crisis, which could be on the scale yet seen.

There is also a scathing paragraph about "how the U.S. has not acknowledged that hundreds of millions of dollars of food aid might be required in Iraq, especially since USAID has invited a handful of corporations with close ties to the White House to bid on a billion-dollar infrastructure reconstruction contract in postwar Iraq."

Our priority is in the right place, I see.

UNHCR has put forth a call for emergency donation to assist the Iraqi people. I will send them some money. I hope you can help too.
