Featured this week: Iraq: Why the UN was bombed
Contrary to the imperialist leaders' and corporate media's almost
unanimous claim that the United Nations special representative to Iraq,
Sergio Viera de Mello de Mello was a "man of peace" who was only
administering "humanitarian aid" to Iraqis, in reality he was a cog in
the oppressive machine of the brutal US occupation of Iraq.
