Albright: Death of 500,000 children "worth it" - Yes, the now US Secretary of State really did say this. We have the video clip to prove it. What does it say about the U.S. Government when someone who utters a remark worthy of Eichmann is named to shape U.S. foreign policy? What does it say about the American media (normally so dependent on soundbites) when one of the most damning remarks of the decade is ignored?

Banning Child Sacrifice - A Difficult Choice? - By Kathy Kelly. "Repeatedly, the US media describes Iraq's plight as 'hardship.' Video footage and still photographs show professors selling their valuable books. Teenage students hawking jewelry in the market are interviewed about why they aren't in school. These are sad stories, but they distract us from the major crisis in Iraq today, the story still shrouded in secrecy. This is the story of extreme cruelty, a story of medicines being withheld from dying children. It is a story of child abuse, of child sacrifice, and it merits day to day coverage."

Iraq's children - paying the price with their lives - Albright says it's 'worth it' - TO reflect on seven years of visits to Iraq since the Gulf War is to reflect on decline from the impossible to the apocalyptic. When Martti Ahtisaari, then special raporteur to the United Nations visited the country just after the Gulf War, he wrote that: "Nothing we had seen or read could have prepared us for this particular devastation, a country reduced to a pre-industrial age for a considerable time to come."
Iraq: Sanctions - The Silent Weapon - Sanctions are a weapon of mass destruction. From 1990, when sanctions were imposed on Iraq until 1995, half a million children under the age of five died of malnutrition and preventable diseases. Sanctions impose artificial famine. A third of Iraq's surviving children today have stunted growth and nutritional deficiencies that will deform their shortened lives.
