Genocide by Sanction

Whilst the war is taking place.....In the past 12 years as many as 1 million to 2 million Iraqis may have died as a result of the sanctions. I see no benefit attained by sanctions, they are intended to compel Saddam to abandon his ambition to build weapons. The real problem with the sanctions is that they target the wrong people: civilians. (The only explanation for Bush's obsession with attacking Iraq is Oil and related Geo-political power) Wonder how he gets any shut eye.Worse form of war is genocide, what do you people think?

Us is not innocent

The US claims to be the global police and innocent. The UIS had five times as much chemical and bio weapons as any country in the world, and in most cases sold the bio and chem to other ocuntries in the 7-'s and 80's and is now haveong second thought about thes eotehr ocuntries haveing independent thoughts and not thos of the US. The US and thier scape goating of France (freedom fries) borders n Xenophobic behavios which is no bette rthen Hitlers and his 3rd reich's behavioe in the 30's and 40's. nex ting u know the frnech will be rounded up in the states and put into internment camps, just like the japenese were in WW2

How come...

What I find interesting is that a little over a year ago, when I turned on the news I heard talk of the UN going into negotiations to lift the sanctions. Too bad it got in the way of our Presitent's wonderfull opportunity to delve the American people into fear and jingoism that will probably keep him in office for the next 4 years.
