The Bush administration, U.S. soldiers, and the mostly-male media have little or no knowledge of what Iraqi women think about the invasion of their country. The views of some of these modern, educated, outspoken Iraqi women may come as a big surprise.

U.S. Miscalculates in Iraq

Americans split over marine's 'war crimes'
A US marine under investigation for war crimes, after he told his local newspaper that he had executed an Iraqi soldier, has become a cause célèbre in his home town, Las Vegas, and has announced his intention to become a policeman.
Navy criminal investigators are questioning gunnery sergeant Gus Covarrubias, about his actions in a battle outside Baghdad's defence ministry on April 8.
Meanwhile, another battle rages in Las Vegas newspaper letter pages and internet chatrooms over whether he is a hero or a criminal.
"Gunny" Covarrubias, now back in Las Vegas recovering from concussion from the battle, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he had tracked down two Iraqi soldiers he believed had fired a grenade at his unit, shooting one in the back of the head and another as he tried to escape.
He described his actions as meting out "justice". The Pen tagon disagrees. "If this story is true, then clearly it would be violation of the law of war," Captain Shawn Turner, a marine spokesman said.
