Dear Hassan and list members, Hassan wrote: "The Iraqi National Coalition did not appear "suddenly". It has existed since 1990" "This group (and some leftists, nationalists and independent figures) have been in dialogue with the government of Iraq since 1992" Can Hassan give us any credible evidance that the "Iraqi National Coalition" existed since 1990? Any press release? conference? anything? Hassan wrote: " I didn't hear the Coalition claiming to represent the Iraqi opposition. They have categorically distanced themselves from the Iraqi opposition. So to accuse them of something they didn't say is not right." Hassan, look at the title of your message that started this discussion. Hassan wrote: "I don't think that it is correct to label this group "Saddam's puppets"" Well, opponents of the Iraqi regime are subject to torture and execution (according to the great historic leader Saddam Husein). Are the members of the Iraqi National Coalition being tortured now? or are they getting a special treatment? Hassan wrote: "I would hope that Ahmed and his friends stop attacking anyone who does not agree with them or label anyone who looks for a peaceful solution for Iraq's crisis as "Saddam's puppet"" Not everyone opposing the war on Iraq is a supporter of Saddam. Some Iraqi opposition groups are also against American military action on Iraq because they think that America will not target Saddam. Yet, they don't go to Baghdad and shake hands with a dictator that kills and tortures people simply for being "an opposition". Finally, My own opinions were not the subject of this discussion. But if you would like like to know my position, I am more than happy to answer any questions that you have. ahmed Sent by Mail at easy.com, an easyGroup company. _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
