Ender_Sai: Dispense with your arrogant attitude, and perhaps you will learn a thing or two. I know quite a bit about the Geneva Convention, thank you very much. Are you so forgetful that you do not recall a discussion we had a couple months or so back on human shields? I am pretty sure I alerted you to the rampant uses of human shields in the Arab world, and, as I predicted, you neglected to condemn their usage of it. I know you would be carrying on non-stop if the U.S. were using human shields. Pseudo-intellectual posturing? [sarcasm] Thank you for the fantastic rebuttal. [/sarcasm] The fact of the matter is you will not answer the considerable content found in my post. You simply evade the issues, as you are wont to do. McCartney: The sanctions are to blame for the suffering of the Iraqi people??? Saddam is, not the sanctions. The sanctions could have been easily evaded if Saddam bothered to comply with the terms demanded of him. Besides with all the money he spends on his palaces and WOMD programs, he should be able to take care of the people.
