A reminder
On this day: a date that lives in infamy


United Nations implications in war crimes
Interview with Count Hans-Christof von Sponeck, March 2007
Former UN Assistant Secretary General, heading the UN “oil-for-food” program until resignation in February 2000 in protest over the continued sanctions

“Mr Dennis Halliday, former UN Assistant Secretary General and Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq, predecessor of Mr Hans von Sponeck, that the sanctions led to resign in protest in September 1998. He declared at that time: « We are destroying an entire society (…).This is illegal and immoral ». His resignation was followed by that of Mr Hans von Sponeck and two days later, by that of Mrs Jutta Burghardt, in charge of the UN Food Programme who joined the declaration of the two former.”

    Just posted the UNDISTORTED text of the resolution between IAEA and Iran, not what the war mongers are beating in their drums as “Iran’s threat of nuclear holocaust!”

    According to IAEA: Iran’s Nuclear program IS PEACEFUL!
