THE ACTION of the United States government ('Clinton revenge attack on Iraq', 27 June) should be strongly condemned by anyone who believes in the rule of law, both domestic and international. How can we condemn vigilantes on our streets when our Prime Minister openly supports international vigilantism?

The US ignored the fact that men are on trial in Kuwait for the alleged crime and seeks to justify its action by calling for a condemnation of 'state terrorism'. Does this include its own?
