That's correct, it is Iraq. It's also against the Geneva convention to assign collective guilt in this way. I now can see why the Bush administration has been so gung-ho on backing out of international courts, waiving war-crimes laws, etc. They knew what they would be getting us into.
I may rewrite a little more, then, so that the message is more clear. I don't like my favorite line, unfortunately, so it may have to go (it's the only one that changes from third to second person). Such is the fate of the writer, I guess.
