Saddam's Mass Graves

According to the always abrasive Air America radio announcer Randi Rhodes, many of the people in Saddam's mass graves were the people King George the first told to rise up and take back their country from Saddam after Desert Storm. They assumed the US would back them up. How many Iraq deaths are we directly and indirectly responsible for in total? Iran Contra arms sales so that the Iran - Iraq war could be extended, selling the chemical components to gas the Kurds, the strict economic sanctions for many years, quick indiscriminate issuing of guns to Iraq police recruits with a desertion rate of 80%, supplying the vehicles and guns to the death squads, and of course the present occupation. And many of the people in favor of more war on these folks are the same folks that believe in the sanctity of life. Strange priorities.

    Tonight's BBC report "No Room at Iraqi Refugee Camps" - you'll find it HERE if you didn't already see it, illustrates even more the suffering of these sad, unfortunate, people at the hands of western politicians.
