List moderator - in light of the content of this mail, I hope my response might be allowed. >Dear Sama, If you put in my name on www.google.com and read my articles on Iraq I think you will find they belie your first paragraph. Your second is beneath response and blittles the work of this list. Unless possible propoganda is pinned every time in this current crisis in attempt to alert to the massive political games going on (and yes, I could be wrong, this is the point of a discussion list, to do just that) there will be plenty more tears for Iraq. With discussion of use of nuclear weapons and their use in first strike not being ruled out, much of it and its people could be vapourised.The stakes are potentially unimaginable. This is no time for name calling. In peace, felicity. > I cannot believe how cowardly and cold hearted you can be.

This is not the first time that you have done this, looking back > you have almost always sought to dismiss the suffering of Iraqis under the > pretence that it is all set up. Do you not realise that the reason you do > not hear Iraqis from inside Iraq saying this is because of the unimaginable > oppression they are under. Yet, why is it that hundreds of people I have > spoken to who have just escaped from Iraq to Iran, Syria or Jordan - all > express the same wish while they still have family back in Iraq? > > This rather begs the question as to where your dollars are coming from? > > Don't you dare ever belittle or belie the suffering of Iraqis with cynical > remarks and baseless comments. > > A tearful Sama > -- > > On Thu, 26 Sep 2002 00:48:38 > farbuthnot wrote: >>Hi, >> >>I have an unshakable suspicion that we have just been treated to incubator >>babies, mark 2.
