More on the political control of water resources: Here is a critical summary of some declassified US Defense Intelligence Agency documents outlining our best guess at how many hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children have died of disease as a direct result of the Gulf War. (Bombing of water purification infrastructure and subsequent sanctions against importing purification material into Iraq.) At least a few of our elected representatives have expressed concern that this is a clear violation of the Geneva Convention, but the policy remains unchanged and 5000 children per month are dying for lack of clean water.
