In a criminal attack against the Iraqi capital, US forces launched 36 Tomahawk missiles and made multiple raids with Stealth bombers during the night, after a joint operation by US/British aircraft targeted 10 Iraqi artillery positions in the southern no-fly zone.
The attacks on Baghdad began at around 05.30 MSK, the targets being ministries. The US/UK alliance has already started referring to President Saddam Hussein and his sons as “targets”. An attempt was made to assassinate President Hussein, but he survived. There are unconfirmed reports that one civilian was murdered and several others injured in this act of terrorism.
As George Bush and Tony Blair unleash their forces of evil against an innocent population and a sovereign state, outside the auspices of the UNO, which they deride, they give the go-ahead for similar terrorist attacks in retaliation.
