"Before we rush to war with Iraq again, Americans must know what happened in the last war. In 1991, we bombed Iraq's civilian infrastructure to `accelerate the effect of sanctions' knowing it would shut down their water and sewage systems.[1] The UN reported there would soon be `epidemic and famine' and `time was short' to prevent it. We said that `by making life uncomfortable for the Iraqi people we would encourage them to remove President Saddam Hussein.'[2]
        "And we waited for this to happen. We used epidemic and famine as tools of our foreign policy. We did it to cause suffering -- and death -- to get regime change at low cost. We tried to force the Iraqis to do it. But it was not low cost....
        "A World-Trade-Center's worth of Iraqi children continue to die every month. Diarrhea is `the prime killer.'[5] Meanwhile we live in a fantasy world of surgical bombing, with few civilian casualties, and the untrue belief that the oil-for-food program could possibly meet Iraq's needs.[6]
        "But these basic facts are unknown to most Americans. A second Gulf War, done the same way as the first, may just overflow the reservoir of anger and hatred we've created by our policies. No one knows what will happen then. Until we recognize what we've done, we cannot judge what might happen."

"Dr. Thomas Nagy, a Holocaust survivor and professor at George Washington University in Washington D.C., claims that hospitals like Saddam Pediatric are on the frontlines of a modern-day Holocaust. After analyzing recently declassified U.S. military documents that describe plans to destroy Iraq’s civilian water supply during the Gulf War, Dr. Nagy now believes he has the evidence to make his charges stick. In a controversial paper presented to the Association of Genocide Scholars in the United States this summer, Dr. Nagy argues that the purposeful destruction of Iraq’s water treatment facilities amounted to `a plan for achieving extermination without the need of constructing extermination camps.'"
