Dear listmembers, let's talk about human rights. I was in Iraq in april this year. I met Ghazwan, Nermin, Hassan, Tony, and others of this list, all beautiful people. All honest people who dedicate their life fighting the unjust sanctions, and opposing to American world domination. People who are personally attacked all the time by Yasser & co. One very high-ranking official of a UN-related organisation, whose name I won't reveal (because he asked), told us off the record that there has been a study about the effects of a limited American invasion, only to topple SH and to turnover Iraqi leadership. The results of this study are quite astonishing: there would be hundreds of thousands of deaths among the civilian population, mainly because of the collapse of the rationing system and the vulnerable Iraqi economy. If I know these facts, surely the CIA-funded and/or US-government funded Iraqi opposition must know these facts. If you support an invasion, knowing these facts, can you call yourself a friend of the Iraqi people? What "human rights" are you defending? And should such people be able to express their "independent opinion" on an anti-sanctions-list? I don't think so. "I just wonder when their conscience will, if ever, catch up with them?"
