Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
not to mention Blair's complicity in this:

In searching for evidence of the potential danger posed by Iraq, the Bush Administration need have looked no further than the well-kept record of U.S. manipulation of the sanctions program since 1991. If any international act in the last decade is sure to generate enduring bitterness toward the United States, it is the epidemic suffering needlessly visited on Iraqis via U.S. fiat inside the United Nations Security Council. Within that body, the United States has consistently thwarted Iraq from satisfying its most basic humanitarian needs, using sanctions as nothing less than a deadly weapon, and, despite recent reforms, continuing to do so. Invoking security concerns--including those not corroborated by U.N. weapons inspectors--U.S. policymakers have effectively turned a program of international governance into a legitimized act of mass slaughter.
