Often forgotten over Iraq is the death toll of sanctions. This is estimated at between 1 and 2 million over the 13 years from 1990 to 2013. By 2000, sanctions were killing 5000 infants a month (children under 5)… Two top UN men resigned, calling it genocide… Sanctions were kept in place, indeed tightened, chiefly by the US and UK. When we weren’t killing the children we were killing their parents or grandparents… Deliberate policy.
