The other half of the Iraq story

We hear about the tortured and mutilated bodies of 30-60 Iraqi men being found each day after being abducted by rival militias. (And how the Shiite militias appear to be very fond of using power tools as torture devices.) What of Iraqi women? Many who dare to have jobs are murdered. Rape and kidnapping are endemic. And clerics are blessing "pleasure marriages" (rape) that had long been uncommon under Hussein's rule.
