• During the 1990s, the U.S. imposed an embargo on Iraq to prevent that nation from receiving all of the food and medicines it needed. As a result of that embargo, 500,000 Iraqi children are believed to have died.
During much of that embargo, Medeline Albright was the 64th U.S. Secretary of State. On May 12th, A.D. 1996, Secretary of State Albright appeared on 60 Minutes and was asked if the “price” of the embargo-related deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children was “worth it”. Albright replied, “I think that this is a very hard choice, but the price . . . we think the price is worth it.” (See, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbIX1CP9qr4)
Can anyone in their right mind justify the needless deaths of one-half million children? Can anyone who causes or even justifies the deaths of one-half million children expect to be forgiven and welcomed to salvation? Shouldn’t Americans and the world have been shocked and appalled by Secretary of State Albright’s admissions? Could America cause the deaths of 500,000 children and still claim to be the “good guys”?
