[casi] Dubya finally gets it - Unpalatable choices face us.

Well, now we have the most powerful man on the planet behind us, surely our
success in this campaign is only a matter of time. So - well done Dubya: now
we need to be denouncing anyone who stands in the way of lifting sanctions.
What's the UK government position on it? We need a new SC resolution as a
matter of urgency. Can we get a tame MP to sponsor an early day motion?

It was evil when the US and the UK governments played politics with the
lives of hundreds of thousands of people, using their suffering as a
bargaining chip. Now it's equally evil if the rulers of any other states do
the same. People in Iraq need to be free to move around and to trade.

What demands do we need to add to the 'end sanctions now'? How is the
sanctions regime to be dismantled? I imagine that processing all the
contracts currently on hold would be a good thing. Who's to get the contents
of the escrow account? Why not just divvy it up and pay it out on a per
capita basis to every Iraqi?
