Dear Diarmuid & List, Your speech should put across a powerful case against the twisted international policies of the US/UK governments. Just some comments, which may be of relevance. Some deadly children's diseases in Iraq, related to sanctions/bombings: Typhoid, Dysentery, Cholera, Kwarshiokor & Childhood Cancers. You are probably aware that the expression 'crusade' or 'moral crusade' is sensitive, as it relates to historic warfare against Islamic people. Re. UN Inspectors, the Iraqis are in a Catch 22 situation - damned if they do, damned if they don't. This is blatant anti-diplomacy. Here are paralells, all suggesting 'war against terrorism': Bush & genocide of Iraqi people. Sharon & genocide of Palestinian people. Putin & genocide of Chechneyan people. Not forgetting Tibet. Maybe Iraqi, or better still, international Weapons Inspectors should go in to the USA, searching for weapons of mass destruction, chemical/ biological weapons etc. Since Vietnam, or even since the hunting down of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, can the USA really ever be trusted? Or, for that matter, remembering Suez etc., can Britain be trusted (I hope it can!). Superpowers who impose their might upon the world would do well to bear in mind the plight of the Holy Roman Empire. As for this illegal, immoral & dangerous maverick war against Iraq, and to War Without Limits, "NOT IN OUR NAME!" Greetings, hope all goes well on Monday, Bert G. _________________________________________________________________ MSN Photos is the easiest way to share and print your photos: http://photos.msn.com/support/worldwide.aspx _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
