[casi] Encouaging Amnesty, etc. to live up to their mission statement

Dear Colleagues,

   How do we prevent the 3rd massacre of by water borne disease of Iraqi kids.
I'd appreciate constructive feedback on the idea of holding the human rights
groups to their mission statements.

  Here's an example I just sent to Amnesty International which is committed to
halting the execution of kids and torture accross the board.

   If my notion has any merit, I acknowledge and thank the folks who spent
years getting Amnesty to opposse comprehensive sanctions on Iraq.

In  a stunning  understatement Amnesty's Ms. Kahn acknowledged that "It would
seem more preparation was made by the Coalition to protect oil wells than
hospital or water plants [in Iraq].
  In point of fact the most credible sources  from UNICEF, INCRC, to Care,
Inc, the lead NGO for water rehabilitation in Iraq have said  on record for
serveral weeks that Iraq infants face an epidemic of cholera etc. in a few
days,  because, in direct violation of international law,  the U.S. government
continues to  assign  negligible priority to resuply of chlorine to Souther
Iraq whose supply of this essential water
purification chemical will be totally depleted in
less than one week.

QUESTION: How  will Amnest work to prevent  the almost certain torturous death
by dehydration
of as many as 300,000 additional Iraqi children due to this industrial scale,
de facto, torture and execution? Because of the likelyhood, magnitude, and
finality  of death of total innocent infants, is it not imperative that
Amnesty  lauch a correspondingly huge campaign to shame the U.S.G. from
committing this massive act of torture and killing of the the very young?

   Full documentation is available from U.S. Gov. sources as well as the UN
which I shall be happy to share with Amnesty. Authentication is not a problem
since the most inculpitare documents on are the U.S goverment web sites.'
Please reply quickly. The third massacre of Iraqi children which in number and
cruelty threatens to geately exceed even the  Helabja attrocity, is very
nearly   upon us.
