This article covers a 23-year period, from 1990 to 2013, to describe the systematic degradation in the quality of life that children born in Iraq over this period were subjected to by global geopolitical machinations. The period is broken into three successive stages – sanctions, invasion and post-military occupation – to describe the process of occupation and its impact on infants and children. The statistics that were regularly published by international agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) throughout the process showed the plight of Iraqi children as innocent victims of global policies known to the policy-makers.
