I am very concerned that AI seems to have done nothing about the 
situation in Iraq.

The US and the UK are maintaining a ferocious assault on the Iraqi 
people and their fundamental human rights. The main instrument has 
been the sanctions which cannot be relaxed as these two states hold a 
veto in the UN Security Council. This follows the Gulf War when 
civilian infrastructure was deliberately targetted eg sewage 
treatment, power generation, water works - as an instrument of terror 
against the whole population.

I realise that AI would find it difficult to prevent this type of 
military action by the US but I think that it is vital to campaign 
against sanctions which are deliberately targetting civilinas.

Could you please address this issue?
