Thread Name: BS: Galloway tears them to shreds
Subject: RE: BS: Galloway tears them to shreds
Mr George Galloway stood before Saddam Hussein and said:

'Your Excellency, Mr President. I greet you in the name of the many thousands of people in Britain who stood against the tide and opposed the war and aggression against Iraq and continue to oppose the war by economic means which is aimed to strangle the life out of the great people of Iraq. "I greet you too, in the name of the Palestinian people…..I thought the President would appreciate to know that even today, three years after the war, I still meet families who are calling their newborn sons Saddam…Sir, I salute your courage, your strength your indefatigability. And I want you to know that we are with you until victory, until victory until Jerusalem."

The Times, 20th January, 1994

At the time, the estimated death toll for wars started by Saddam, and the repression of his own people, was just over 1 million people.

Just in case any Americans wonderered what they were dealing with in Galloway....
