Reader comment on item: How the West Could Lose
in response to reader comment: Typical Muslim "Logic"

Submitted by Sohail (United Kingdom), Apr 6, 2007 at 10:46

The Iraq sanctions:

1 million to 2 million Iraqis may have died as a result of the sanctions, many of them children under the age of 5. This is more than were massacred in Rwanda in 1994, and on a par with the Armenian Holocaust of 1915-1919. UNICEF officials estimated in 2000 that 5,000 to 6,000 Iraqi children were dying each month primarily due to sanctions. That is equivalent to a World Trade Towers-scale calamity -- in a nation of only 18 million -- every month for the past decade or more.

This was a holocaust committed by the U.N and USA.

Instead of sanctions against Iraq, America could have removed Saddam during the first gulf war but there didn't. I wonder Why?
