Nasser closed the Suez Canal to British ships...as he had every right to do. In response the Brits bombed the town of Port Said...rained down bombs on civillians. They only stopped because Eisenhower insisted.
That isn't "Terror". That's a military action against a civillian population carried out by UNIFORMED soldiers using heavy military armament...what is it...an act of "Delight"? It can't be an act of war...none was declared. When a stronger nation uses its military to retaliate or force through its "policies", by targeting civilians...it isn't Terror?
The United Nations itself has addmitted that US imposed Sanctions have resulted in the death of 5000 children a month in Iraq. Just because we frame the debate in such a way as to lay blame on Saddam...hasn't fooled anyone. Starving his own people's children slowly has never been a policy of his.
This isn't an act of Terror on the part of the United States and Britain?
