Madeleine Albright, Secretary of State under President Bill Clinton, goes down in infamy not only for admitting that 500,000 innocent children were starved by sanctions on Iraq but also for admitting the atrocity while licking her lips.
Do you think about starving 500,000 children has a place in US policy?
When did America decide it was OK to wage war against children?
Elie Wiesel's Ignoble RecruitsThe same band of ravenous vampires that created the Muslim 'boogieman' Saddam shortly after the Communist 'boogieman' fell, are licking their fangs over the thought of turning Iran into a 'Shock and Awe' project.
Now let us turn to the vicious prescriptions called for by Wiesel and his recruits. They first call for “harsher sanctions,” without any mention of restrictions on such sanctions. We already know that sanctions as practiced by the U.S. are a recipe for massive death and destruction. We know what the years of sanctions did to Iraq under the presidencies of Clinton and Bush II. When Madeleine Albright was informed in a notorious TV interview that 500,000 Iraqi children had died due to those sanctions, she did not deny it but replied “This is a very hard choice, but ... we think the price is worth it.” Do the signers of this ad agree with Albright’s assessment in the case of Iraq and now Iran? Sanctions are far from harmless and they fall hardest on the helpless and rarely on the powerful. In 2000 Christian Aid stated:
“The immediate consequence of eight years of sanctions has been a dramatic fall in living standards, the collapse of the infrastructure, and a serious decline in the availability of public services. The longer-term damage to the fabric of society has yet to be assessed but economic disruption has already led to heightened levels of crime, corruption and violence. Competition for increasingly scarce resources has allowed the Iraqi state to use clan and sectarian rivalries to maintain its control, further fragmenting Iraqi society.”
By demonizing Iran, the NeoCons and Zionists can scare Americans with more tales of throat-slitting 'Muzzies,' allowing these liars, con artists, thieves and mass murderers to steal what's left of America, using "Crowbars by Bernanke" and send off our kids to fight and die in another war for Israel.
