Listening to this interview yesterday morning I thought - does Mr Ingram realise that in saying this he has just stated officially that Iraqi civilian lives are worth less than the lives of 'our troops'? Some liberation. Cathy >Mr Ingram admitted for the first time yesterday that >cluster bombs were dropped on "built-up areas" in Iraq >in an attempt to protect British servicemen. After >initially denying the charge in an interview with the >BBC, the minister said the unguided weapons, which >release hundreds of bomblets, were used "in specific >circumstances where there is a threat to our troops". -- Cathy Aitchison _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
