Annan: Life for Iraqis worse than with Saddam

In the BBC interview, Annan agreed when it was suggested that some Iraqis believe life is worse now than it was under Saddam Hussein’s regime.
“I think they are right in the sense of the average Iraqi’s life,” Annan said.
“If I were an average Iraqi obviously I would make the same comparison, that they had a dictator who was brutal but they had their streets, they could go out, their kids could go to school and come back home without a mother or father worrying, ‘Am I going to see my child again?'” he said.
