I emailed this to the New Statesman today Eric --- Begin Forwarded Message --- Date: Fri, 10 May 2002 08:46:59 +0100 From: Eric Herring <email@example.com> Subject: Gott on Iraq sanctions Sender: Eric.Herring@bristol.ac.uk To: firstname.lastname@example.org Cc: Eric Herring <email@example.com> Reply-To: Eric Herring <firstname.lastname@example.org> Message-ID: <EXECMAIL.1020510084659.B@pol-pc97.bristol.ac.uk> Richard Gott's claim (13 May) that 'the sanctions menace has in effect been defeated' with regard to child welfare in Iraq flies in the face of every available current briefing from the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) in Iraq, as UNICEF would have told him had he asked. Gott has fallen for the fallacy that, simply because the entire society is not self-evidently on its knees, things are basically fine. ---------------------- Dr. Eric Herring Senior Lecturer in International Politics Department of Politics University of Bristol 10 Priory Road Bristol BS8 1TU England, UK Office tel. +44-(0)117-928-8582 Mobile tel. +44-(0)7771-966608 Fax +44-(0)117-973-2133 http://www.ericherring.com/ email@example.com _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
