Dear Colleagues particularly Bert, Attila, et al., Thank you for your leads and suggestions re the urgent need to update the splendid pre invasion estimates of civilian deaths with an report of the magnitude of the ongoing, passive but fully lethal bioterrorism by water in Iraq by the US. I feel this is a case of Rwanda redux in which the heroic pleas by Gen. Dellaire for light personnel carriers needed to prevent the genocide was delayed till the genocide burned itself out. In the same manner, making the provision of safe water even to infants is such a low priority (e.g., Betchtel bought tons of chlorine from its enormous grant from USIA from a Smyna, Georgia firm but the chlorine was still in Turkey the last I was able to track it through the business news wires). My greatest fear is that the infrastructure will arrive as did the light personnel carriers -- after the epidemics burn themselves out unless we can document and publicize and thereby shame the U.S. gov. into doing the legal, sane, humane thing. I hope to post the surveillance data I have been able to dig up so far over the weekend and request that if people know of addition reliable surveillance data, they also post it (or at least its source). more later, tom _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
