Remembering Amiriyah Shelter

I'm writing an article on the different "lessons" various interests have 
drawn from the attack on Baghdad's Amiriyah Shelter.

Specifically, I'm looking at how the US military, the Iraqi government, and 
the peace/anti-sanctions movements remember this event and what each group 
finds significant in it.

What I'd like to hear from list members is their "take" on this tragedy: is 
the bombing of Amiriyah Shelter significant to the post-war anti-sanctions 
movement?  If so, why and how?  What has this event meant to people as they 
motivate for an end to sanctions?

Any responses used will be cited as interviews and full credit will be given 
to respondents.

I hope to present my findings at the American national conference of The 
Historical Society in Atlanta in May 2002.
