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 intact. 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 country. A SHAMES London any comments?
