Iraq - killing for sport

"Reports are coming out of Iraq of US troops using mass graves, raping children, using napalm, killing for sport...

"Those who consider themselves progressives will pay dearly and for a long time for their acquiescence these last many years."


"I now wish we could go back to Saddam's time. We suffered then, but not like the suffering nowadays. There is no water or electricity...

"The rationing system for sugar and baby milk collapsed at the beginning of the year, forcing many to go without.

"Sadr City, the vast slum in the capital's west, is in the grip of a hepatitis outbreak. Forty per cent of Baghdad's homes have reported sewage on the streets."


US caused more deaths in Iraq than Saddam, says anti-war tribunal

AFP June 26 2005

"The World Tribunal on Iraq (WTI), a grouping of NGOs, intellectuals and writers opposed to the war in Iraq, on Friday accused the United States of causing more deaths in Iraq than ousted president Saddam Hussein.

"'With two wars and 13 years of criminal sanctions, the United States have been responsible for more deaths in Iraq than Saddam Hussein,' Larry Everest, a journalist, told hundreds of anti-war activists gathered in Istanbul."


How odd that some of the British and American electorates voted for war criminals in recent elections.
