Just a reminder to those who claim Saddam has killed thousands of his people...and the American press that laments the 5000 Kurds killed with U.S chemicals...Ms Albright addmitted years ago that U.S. policy calling for Sanctions that at the time resulted in 5000 dead Iraqi children a month was "a valid policy objective". No one was claiming then that Saddam was the one responsible for those deaths. At the time we were tickled pink with Sanctions...such a noble sounding goal...so reasonable...and so little chance of collateral damage to Americans...except OOPs, there went the Trade Center!!!
Gun policy of this government leads to 11,000 dead Americans a year...obviously dead people donīt upset anyone too much.
Sanctions have caused the deaths of of over 500,000 Iraqi children...never mind their parents. For those Gringos who decry Saddamīs "cruelty"...choke on your own kindness.
Am I "defending" Saddam? Am I condemning Bush? Just telling it like it is...something people used to rush to America to be free to do. That was then...this is now.
