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. ============================================================================== = ===tn-amnesty 5/25/03 Sent to www.amnestyusa.org/askamnesty/ 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. Thomas J.
