Tortured Russian logic tortures Iraqis
: Below, we note that the Euros don’t want to lift sanctions because that means they and the U.N. will lose control.
Russia is playing the game with even more tortured logic:
RUSSIA will not support a US proposal to lift UN sanctions on Iraq if UN inspectors do not confirm the country has no weapons of mass destruction, a Russian foreign ministry official said.
“Regime change in Baghdad is not a condition for lifting economic sanctions on Iraq,” the official told the Interfax news agency on condition of anonymity.
“There is a UN Security Council resolution for this, which clearly stipulates the disarmament of Iraq – something international inspectors must decide,” he said, adding that Russia supported the return of UN inspectors.
They should be ashamed.
