diplomats who for many years have called for the sanctions imposed in 1990 in the wake of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait to be lifted are now calling for a delay.
What? So, let's get this straight:
- Saddam's in power: they want sanctions lifted.
- Saddam's deposed: they want sanctions to remain, until…
They say the restrictions should remain until the UN certifies that Iraq is free of WMDs.
In other words the UN is still malevolently seeking control, still holding innocent people to ransom until it gets it, and still using its utterly unmerited jurisdiction over legitimacy as a weapon.
Remind us again – what good do these bastards do?
