Dear Colleagues, May I make a request, as U.S./UK gov. studied indifference moves within days of another massacre of Iraq children via another lethal epidemic of water borne disease particularly in S. Iraq. (See any serious sources like UNICEF, OXFAM, CESR -- particularly the full reports backing their press releases). Even BBC carried one full story (on April 19th if memory serves) cititing the exhaustion of supplies of chlorine in S. Iraq and its totally predictable consequences. Of course BBC was careful to add the utterly improbably/implausible sops of "unrest" and "looting" to ally the conscience of anyone not fully lulled to sleep by the flow of propaganda. This standard technique works well on anyone completely ignorant of criminology or history or medicine and epidemiology. None of this mainstream media pap passes what we call the "giggle test" of plausibility. Even demented lesser races do not loot commodities which have zero potential use or resale (fencing) value and which are highly dangerous to handle without apt training and equipment. The idea that the US/UK war machines cannot escort and "defend" a very finite # of water treatment systems in S. Iraq a couple of truck traversing a few tens of miles from people both unlikely and incapable of posing a serious threat again does not pass the giggle test. So here's my request, until the world shames the occupying parties to prevent this latest gross violation of Geneva and elementary ethics, by demanding the US/UK govs and or their minions deliver a few truck loads of chlorine gas cannisters to Basra and a few other cities in S. Iraq, could we please stop wasting precious time by reprinting on CASI word for word the fantastic tales of the Telegram and similar fantasies. I am quite content to see an url to the Telegram and its astounding tales or to any source, but please spare this list the distraction of nonesense from the Telagram at least till we can all act together to avert yet another crime that will "outrage the mute earth" and endanger our children or we and like minded people fail and their kids die in ever increasing #s followed all too predictably with the death our kids, the remains of our civil liberties and our financial security.
