Hvad kæmpede vi for i Irak?

Iraq – Amna Suraka Museum (Red Security)

Sulaymaniyah has what is perhaps the best testament to the pain and torture Saddam inflicted on the Iraqi–and especially Kurdish–people during his reign of terror. The Amna Suraka Museum, better known as Red Security due to the color of its walls, was a torture chamber for thousands of prisoners between 1979 and 1991, when it was overrun by the Kurdish Peshmerga.

A tunnel of mirrors that has over 182,000 shards of glass on the walls and over 5,400 light bulbs overhead. Each shard of glass represents a Kurd killed under Saddam and each light bulb represents a Kurdish village destroyed under his reign.
