Kani Xulam, a Kurd from
northern Kurdistan, is the director of the American
Kurdish Information Network. He was interviewed on the KPFA
Morning Show March 5, 2003, discussing the pending war with Iraq. Among
his many observations, he noted:
"...conservative [U.S.] media is using our dead, the victims of
chemical and biological weapons to drum up support for the war effort.
And we resent that. Fourteen years ago, when we were bombarded by
chemical and biological weapons, (the) Reagan administration did not even acknowledge
our dead, and did not even condemn this brutal act against a civilian
population that constitutes a crime against humanity ... Now, the
conservative [U.S.] media is using our dead to drum up support for this war,
which we don't think will bring anything good for the Kurds."
