REPARATIONS FOR IRAQ
The head of Saddam Hussein's legal team has
asked the Japanese public to support efforts to reinstate . . . Iraq's legitimate leadership . . .
Ziad al-Khasawna, who was speaking at the
Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan on Monday, also demanded that occupying nations pay
compensation to the Iraqi people . . .According to international law, Saddam Hussein and his government
are still the legitimate leadership of Iraq and everything that has happened since the start of the occupation is illegal,"
The reason behind the invasion of Iraq was the
"Zionist way of thinking" that required the complete destruction of the country and its leader - including its museums, ministries,
archives and treasures - in an effort to end a civilisation that stretches back more than 8000 years to ensure there is no future threat to Israel.

Verges Speaks Out
A French lawyer . . .doesn't
think there will be a trial for a long time and criticized President Bush for pronouncing the former dictator guilty of atrocities.
Jacques Verges said he believes the United States has violated the Geneva Conventions on
several counts in its detention of Saddam, and said the world must wait for a trial to determine what Saddam did wrong.
"We know that Mr. Bush has said he's guilty," Verges told Associated Press Television News.
"But what does that mean? Mr. Bush is not a judge. We cannot accept him as a judge. He is an enemy of Saddam Hussein."
