>From www.indict.org.uk " INDICT was established in late 1997 to campaign for the creation of an ad hoc International Criminal Tribunal - similar to those established for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda - to try leading members of the Iraqi regime on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including genocide and torture. The campaign was launched in the House of Commons and in the US Senate and remained dependent on voluntary donations and assistance until it was awarded a financial grant through the Iraq Liberation Act, passed by the US Congress in December 1998, which allocated funds to various Iraqi opposition groups and specifically allocated money for war crimes issues." Ms Clwyd (who chairs INDICT) told MPs on February 26, 2003: "I believe in regime change, and I say that without any hesitation at all, and I will support the government tonight because I think it's doing a brave thing." So, it becomes natural that Ann Clwyd would support war: that is what the CIA pays her to do.. Would she care about the oppressed Shi'i in Saudi Arabia? Or perhaps the Kurds in Turkey? Or maybe the Catholics in Northern Ireland? And would Ms Ann Clwyd, the Labour MP for Cynon Valley, think that sanctions are a form of genocide, as was declared by UN officials who resigned in protest?? But when a person accepts to be bought by intelligence agencies, he or she looses all pretensions of decency, and becomes nothing more than merchandise...
