Hi Mr Buckley Thank you for your reply. I totally understand your views, but I think you have not understood me. Let me briefly explain. I agree that the atrocities committed by the US regime should result in a regime change in the US but I can't see this happening, mainly because of their rich political position in the world. However, the atrocities committed in Iraq are different from the US's. For example, the US have not used chemical weapons against their own people and had a civil war. Yes, it has massacred many people around the world for instance the Vietnamese (not ‘good guys’ are they?…. See your e-mail below) but it hasn't massacred and executed its own people (which still doesn’t make them ‘good guys’). The Iraqis have experienced both, war against other countries by the regime and a war against them by the regime. If there is a need for a regime change in the US for the atrocities they have committed, then there's a more urgent need for a regime change in Iraq. I hope thats clear. Peace be upon you.

Why not? Why don't we ask the families of the between 2 and 4 million Indo-Chinese killed in the US aggression against Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, if regime change is required in the US? With respect I must say that I think you are using a double standard, which makes the US look like the good guys. Just because it was the Vietnamese who were massacred and not US citizens does not make it any less of an atrocity.
