Also in the same interview, Cohen was able to get away with repeating the line about SH harming his own people. Please remember: 1) our governments actively supported SH during and after Halabja etc even to the point of spreading misinformation. David Frost recently let this slip in to his interview with Tony Blair who was totally lost for words - David Frost rescued him! 2) US/UK sanctions have killed between 1 and 2 million Iraqi civilians (largely children) - far more than any repression in Iraq 3) Don't let interviewees get away with trying to blame SH for the effects of sanctions or worsening their effect or any building palaces nonsense - see Halliday and Von Sponeck for info on this Mark Parkinson Bodmin Cornwall _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
