One more victim of the war on Iraq

An Iraqi woman was beaten to death [death occurred after publication of this news article] in Southern California after receiving hate-based threats. A double victim of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. First, because she was only in the U.S. in the first place because of having fled her country after the invasion. And second, because she moved to a country where there is casual acceptance of the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis (and they were all innocent, even the soldiers and resistance fighters who fought back against the invasion), on the bogus justification that "we have to fight them over there to keep them from fighting us here" or the equally bogus "they might get a weapon which might be used against us so we'd better kill them first," a country where the President declared a "Day of Honor" to mark the anniversary of that invasion. Is it little wonder that official disregard of human life infects individuals and ends up with hate crimes like this?
