Editor’s note: is anyone able to tell me who benefits from the killing of Iraqi academics? In the long term even Israel (often blamed for this activity) would not gain any advantage as there are many hundreds of thousands of highly qualified and experienced Iraqis living abroad. Some, at least, will go back if the situation were to improve. Killing a couple of hundred academics and forcing others to leave Iraq will hardly affect the future prospects of Iraq. Please let me know what you think.
