6. "Genocide by Sanctions" video segment

This short 12 minute film produced and directed by Gloria La Riva, features former Attorney General of the United States Ramsey Clark as he goes to Iraq to show the terrible conditions that the bombing has caused there.  UNICEF, the Red Cross and other world organizations estimate around 5,000 children are dying every month in Iraq, due to the bombing and sanctions that we have placed on them.  Over 1.5 million Iraqi's have died!  Clark goes into the hospitals and talks with Iraqi doctors, who say that these deaths could be prevented if they had medicine to give to the children.  We bombed out their way of life!  We bombed their water system, their food system, their sewer system, their communication systems and more.  And Americans were lead to believe that this was a good thing.  (This video includes former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright stating that the costs in human terms "are worth it".)  Iraq information: www.geocities.com/michigan_vicki
