Swiss reader has been kind enough to provide this further update.
Hi Tom ,
Yes , your right , it's already late-night here in Switzerland , but
incredible war-craze merits every effort at any time to be stopped .
So this is what happened on Swiss-TV tonight :
Tonight , March 13., 2003 , approx. 21:15 Swiss Time , the Swiss
TV-Channel SFDRS 1 broadcasted it's regular weekly show MTV (stands in
German for Menschen , Technik , Wissenschaft = Humans , Technology ,
Science) . In the prime-news at 20:00 they gave already a short info on
coming issue , that an interview with US Professor Tom Nagy on the
and Genocide on the Iraqi population will be broadcast in the MTW-show .
Professor Nagy works at the George Washington University , Washington
20052 USA , in the Department of Management Science .
His email address is
his website-url is :
both of these links were provided on the Swiss-TV homepage
and there under programs(Sendungen)/MTV , and there was also the link to
declassified Pentagon papers he cited and explained in the interview :
During his interview (about 15 minutes altogether) , Mr. Nagy presented
several Pentagon-files from 1991 to 1998 .
He said these documents were strictly classified until
they succeeded in their struggle to get them
declassified not so long ago . He showed a
Pentagon paper from 1991 and explained , that it contains the USAF's
strategy to intentionally destroy the Iraqi water-systems , which
is a very hard breach of the Geneva-conventions and therefore a warcrime
to be prosecuted under international law .
When asked by the interviewer , if he shares this view ,
Mr. Nagy was sad because he had to agree completely . He showed then
further Pentagon papers from 1998 which made the following statements
and comments necessary from his part : the USAF concluded , that this
method used in the first Gulf-war was very effective , even more in
combination with the fact , that the US and the UK abused the embargo to
prevent Iraq from the import of chlorine for water-desinfection .
This drama caused already the death of more than 500'000
Iraqi children , Mr. Nagy said , and currently are 6000 Iraqi children
dying in a week due to nothing else than the lack of clean water ...
And then he went on saying , that the US Generals found
this method really convincing and working , and that the orders given to
the USAF for the coming war give precise information on the planned and
intentional destruction of the entire Iraqi water-supply-system .
He said , the USAF will therefore use their
high-precision laser-guided missiles again to bomb
the Iraqi water-systems definitely into the ground now , and that this
will be officially communicated as 'collateral damages' . And then
he made a kind of résumé of all these bitter facts and had to conclude
, that there is no other way to look at this than as a clear attempt to
Genocide , because the USAF and the US Army knew and knows today that
this strategy will kill literally Millions of innocent Iraqis . He said
it will be only a matter of months then until probably the great
majority of Iraqis will have died , the children first , for they are
sick already now ..... .
This is in brief the essential message which was given in this interview
Well Tom , this is what I can do for the moment . I have no idea if this
serves your request , but I hope so for now . If you need further
details or information , please contact me at any time , your welcome ,
and I will try to do my level best , ok ?
Thanks for your good work , it's much appreciated here !
