Letter: Hypocrisy of bombing Iraq

Sir: Are the recent attacks on Iraq by the United States and allies an example of the new world order we have been promised since the break-up of the Soviet Union?

The policy looks very much like a group of big bullies kicking a smaller bully without any regard to the resulting casualties among innocent civilians. If the US and allies have the right to attack Iraq for non-compliance with United Nations resolutions, then surely by the same logic the Palestinians have a right to attack Israel.

The Middle East policy of the US and allies such as the UK stinks of hypocrisy, and their murderous acts are bringing the UN into disgrace.

Yours faithfully,
