[casi] the IRAQI issue

Dear CASI members,
the INDEPENDENT and the DAILY MAIL published a
letter that I sent them last week:

For decades the Iraqi people have paid the price
of international politics.
There were days when saddam was a nice guy and a
friend to the west, even while he was killing
Iraqis in there tens of thousands.
Then came the invasion of Kuwait and the removal
of saddam from the list of pals and the massive
bombing campaign that damaged almost every
aspect of life in Iraq, leaving the government
After that there were years of starvation for so
many civilians, caused by sanctions.
For how much longer will this be allowed to
continue? Is the war on terrorism going to put
the Iraqi people on the benefiting side for the
first time?
As an Iraqi, my first priority is not protecting
American interests or establishing peace between
Israel and Palestine - it is the Iraqi people.
The best thing that can ever happen to them is
the removal of Saddam Hussein and his government.
But the way to get rid of saddam should not be
over the bodies of innocent Iraqis. Removing
governments can be done with and without wars.
And wars don't have to include bombing the whole


any comments?
