An Excerpt from Iraq Under Siege

Raising Voices: The Children of Iraq 1990-1999

Kathy Kelly

It is January 8, 1997. I am in a car driving from Baltimore to Washington, D.C., at 6:15 a.m. With meare Simon Harak, a Jesuit priest and theology professor, and Ardeth Platte and Carol Gilbert, Dominican sisters from Baltimore. We will later meet Aft Laffin, a Catholic lay worker, at the Senate Hart Office Building. Our plan is to enter the Senate confirmation hearings for Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

Leslie Stahl went to Iraq for 60 Minutes. On the program that aired May 12, 1996, she asked Albright, who was then the US ambassador to the United Nations, to explain US policy in the context of the devastation she had seen among the children of Iraq. Albright responded: "It's a hard decision, Lesli

    Fine case for peace, not war

    This is a very useful book on the continuing US-British aggression against Iraq. Contributors include Denis Halliday, formerly the UN humanitarian coordinator in Iraq, Robert Fisk and John Pilger. It documents the ongoing war¿s human, social and environmental costs. Eleven years of bombing and sanctions have prevented Iraq from importing food, medicines and other necessities, claiming hundreds of thousands of lives, many of them children, while leaving the government unscathed. Anthony Arnove in his Introduction shows that the US-British policy towards Iraq is not about enforcing international law. In fact, the record shows that the US and British governments have broken international law time after time. Resolution 687 states that when Iraq destroys its weapons of mass destruction, sanctions `shall have no further force or effect¿. Yet US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said, ¿We do not agree with the nations who argue that if Iraq complies with its obligations concerning weapons of mass destruction, sanctions should be lifted.¿ And Scott Ritter, former chief inspector of the UN inspection team, said in October 1999, ¿Iraq has been disarmed. Iraq today possesses no meaningful weapons of mass destruction.¿ He judges that Iraq does not have the ability to produce, or deploy, chemical, biological or nuclear weapons. The US government illegally perverted the UN inspection team¿s work by inserting CIA operatives who spied on Iraq and passed information to the Pentagon (which used it to pick targets). There is no UN mandate for the incessant US-British bombing of Iraq, or for the `no-fly zones¿. In December 1998, the US and British governments launched their `Desert Fox¿ attack without even telling the UN, and before the Security Council had considered the inspection team¿s report. UN Resolution 687 did not give any UN member the right to use force. Resolution 1154 similarly empowered the Security Council, not just one member, to decide what to do in the event of non-compliance. Russia, China and France stated that they were not granting anybody the right to use force. Bush and Blair¿s planned war against Iraq is against Britain¿s interests: it is unnecessary, immoral and illegal.

    The outcome of sanctions

    This book is an informed indictment of the sanctions policy. It exposes the brutality of sanctions against Iraq and therefore deserves to be widely read. It should be of value to concerned citizens, activists, academics, journalists, students of actual international regions, and Middle East scholars. There are two important lessons that may be drawn from what has happened to the Iraqi people as a result of sanctions. Firstly, the sanctions against Iraq have brought catastrophic misery on the people. It is completely avoidable and needless suffering which must be stopped immediately. Secondly, one must remain ever vigilant against war and violence because the consequences are deadly. Iraq is an example of the same pattern that one sees throughout the world today. The patterns of deaths and destruction in Afghanistan, Balkans, Colombia, East Timor and Israel/Palestine, are stark reminders of the arrogance of the illegitimate concentration of power.
