World: Middle East

I wish to complain about the story: Saddam 'winning propaganda 

1)      the title continues the policy of focussing on SH and building 
him up even more

2)      the photo shows Tariq Aziz to help reinforce the idea of 
Iraqi/SH propaganda

3)      "The United Nations Secretary-General has warned that the 
international community is in danger of losing the propaganda war 
with Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein". I don't think that the UNSG put it 
this way at all - as a war with SH. In fact the 'war' has been with UN 
officials, UNICEF, NGO's etc who have seen the evidence of the 
genocide in Iraq for themselves. The US and UK try to blame the 
sanctions on SH.

There is a huge propaganda effort involved in keeping these 
murderous sanctions going and it is hard to admit that our 
democratic country has a major share in something like 1 million 
civilian deaths in Iraq.
