re:[casi] Iraqi opposition delegation in Baghdad...

Dear Hassan and list members,

Can Hassan give us any credible evidance that
the "Iraqi National Coalition" existed since
1990? Any press release? conference? anything?

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

Hassan, look at the title of your message that
started this discussion.

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?

"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.
