Dear Colleagues, I don't know AS-ILAS's name, but I commend him/her for posting the bleak but necessary interview below. After the epidemic produced by the US raged for more than a dozen years, the re-invasion has increased even that horrific rate of killing of infants and children under 5 according to WHO surveillance data. How can we end it? Get politicians and/or celebrates to go to Iraq to witness the atrocity and to shame the US/UK into reversing priorities from looting oil to providing safe water ( and for those for whom it is too late to provide medical care) . I have to wonder about the sincerity of Rep. Kucinich. He is one of our pampered, buffed politicians running for the presidency , who could, if he choose to, fly in comfort to Iraq without any physical risk. If he stayed long enough, he could save lives. Yet, he just talks and talks, won't even raise a jar of Iraqi water. Would anyone care to join me in article demanding that K fly his buffed imperial, congressional presence to Iraq or to make way for a person of real conviction like Ralph Nader of the Greens to lead the opposition to the criminal policies of the Bush administration. (I confine myself to K. because he is, in my opinion the only Demo pres. contender that even talks much about Iraq and even he seems to say less and less. tom AS-ILAS wrote: > http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/hardtalk/3022434.stm > _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
