With all due respect, Yasser, I think you've missed my point which was that people who live in the safety of the west are not best placed to decide whether others must pay the price of 'freedom'. Perhaps if the Iraqi people had not been subjected to the added torture of a decade of bombings, sanctions, death and disease, they would be in a better position to let their voices be heard. As it is, their voice is not heard here in England. Tempting as it may be, I think it is a mistake to speak on their behalf and to invite countries like the UK and the USA to rain down death and destruction upon them in the name of 'freedom'. I would also ask you to consider whether you really believe the thousands of deaths, neo-liberal 'reforms' and ecological disaster are preferable to the current dictatorship? _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
