But for Iraq's children the war has never stopped. The U.S./U.N. sanctions have proved a much more lethal weapon than all the bullets, bombs and / missiles of the Gulf War. Since 1992 more than 1.5 million Iraqis, 600,000 of them innocent Iraqi children have died as a direct result of the deadly sanctions. / Another 4,500 children under the age of 5 die each month, mostly from malnutrition, lack of medicine and no clean water to drink. / New bombing will result only in the death of more innocent Iraqi children. To help end sanctions, stop the bombing and provide humanitarian relief: / Middle East children's Alliance 905 Parker St. Berkeley, CA 94710 (510) 548-0562 email:[email protected] web; www.igc.acp.org/meca/."
