Scoop Feedback: Sanctions Kill Children!
It concerns me very deeply to hear that a nice country like NZ has bleeding hearts that would protest the U.S. Embassy rather than the Iraqi Embassy over the sanctions affair. There is only one person responsible for those sanctions, and that is Saddam Hussein. Convince him if you will, that what he is doing is harming his own country, and the people within its borders.
Many of you are too young to remember the end of WW II when the U.S. sent ship load after ship load of grain to a starving India, and our efforts only fed the rats on the wharves. Lifting sanctions on Iraq would only strengthen Saddam's position and make matters worse than what they were. The Iraqi people would only see it as a monumental victory on Saddam's part.
Get real people! Saddam is Iraq's Rat!
