U.S. Foreign Policies

Uploaded by tuneman_99 on Mar 16, 2001

Speaker: An Iraqi student in the U.S.
Crowd: Senators and University professors
Situation: Madeline Albright just gave a speech about U.S. foreign policy/ relations

Imagine the fear of not knowing how your parents and little sister are doing back home. Imagine the shock of finding out your little sister is dying because there were no medicines available for her treatment.

It's very strategic what is let in and at what time, because what it does, is, it prolongs life, but doesn't save it. Iraq which before the sanctions had the best medical services in the Arab World, now has to use gasoline to clean they're hospital floors, because detergents aren't allowed into the county due to sanctions. This is how U.S. policy has brought Iraq into such a bad shape.

The problem is that even though USA has imposed sanctions and recently even found out that Iraq has no nuclear capabilities they continue to bomb...
