    The fact that anyone cites infowars as a source seriously terrifies me. The fact that the number of people that listen to Alex Jones actually listen to him is just scary ****.

    I agree. In regards to Iran, they have signed the NNPT and are following all international law on their uranium enrichment. To date there is no evidence that they are even trying to develop a nuclear weapon. So yes the United States had no business interfering in that country.

    Ironically, they also suffer sanctions that are hurting the innocent population.
    Does anybody really follow the nnpt?

    It seems like a paper tiger to me.

    and to answer your question...yes, I believe that the sanctions were responsible for those deaths.
    She also basically retracted the statement later on and said the deaths were result of Saddam.

    Either way sanctions are the modern day siege.

    Most countries do, but yes I would agree that it only goes so far. However, what we have is another country that refuses to sign the NNPT, let UN and IAEA inspectors in, plus has a long history of human rights abuses and aggression on its neighbors. Iran on the other hand has called for a nuclear weapons-free zone in the Middle East.

    I agree, and was not aware she ever retracted or explained her statement.

And they usually hurt those who have the least involvement in why the sanctions are here in the first place.
    I don't see how sanctions prevent people from growing and producing their own food.

    I would take any story like this from an organ known to many Brits as the Daily Nazi with a large sack of salt. Though certainly, from what little we know of N. Korea, the possibility exists.
    Reports of cannibalism in North Korea is hardly unheard of. That may be the least of the horrors that goes on over there. The stories you hear about what goes on in the prison camps are the things nightmares are made of.
