As with better armor, some liberals, namely at "Air America" are supporting the lawsuit of 19 US airmen, all officers, who were captured during the first Gulf War. They won a law suit in the US for $1 Billion in damages against Iraq, as a result of being tortured. While oppossing torture of POW's, I don't see why the Iraqi people should have to pay for this. How much is the US paying to the survivors of the 400-500 who died as a result of the US cowardly attack against a bomb shelter in 1991? Nothing! Not a thing! A billion dollars in Iraq would probably support the secondary school system for a year, or repair the damaged and destroyed portions of the water purification and sewage treatment systems throughout the country. This is a lot more important then giving a billion dollars to 19 greedy crybabies and their attorneys.
