Dear Ghazwan, There are people in the West who disagree with war-mongering policies. Such as retired politician, Tony Benn, who has, vigorously campaigned against injustice & neo-colonialism for many years. What I don't approve of, in Iraq, is that differing views don't seem to be tolerated, may - in some cases - even be dangerous. I know you won't agree, you will, possibly, reply by saying the Western democracies are not genuine. I think it is somewhat suspect when one person gets 100% of the vote. On the 15th February, millions of people, throughout the world, will be out on the streets, demonstrating - not because their government tells them to, but because they feel strongly about some very serious issues. I do realise that, in some parts of the world, such expression is not tolerated, by those in power. None of this, however, justifies the actions that appear to be prepared for. One of the aggressors is the British government (although not everyone in the government is in favour of war). It does look like there are plans to carry out fiendish aims,, e.g. attacking electricity, water etc. Many, many Iraqis will suffer, as we know. But, to some, that is no major concern, as long as they get oil & domination over the Middle East, even at the expense of destroying countries & peoples. >From: "Ghazwan Al-Mukhtar" <email@example.com> >To: "Bert Gedin" <firstname.lastname@example.org>,"casi" ><email@example.com> >Subject: Re: [casi] Iraqi Water Systems. >Date: Tue, 28 Jan 2003 11:43:59 +0300 > >Dear Bert > I know that “Not everyone will accept the official Iraqi war damage >report, in the West”.
