team of weapons inspectors sent into U.S.

from http://www.rootingoutevil.org/

Rooting Out Evil is a campaign of resistance to US unilateralism and domination of global affairs. The campaign is aimed at reframing the perception of the US’s role in world politics by turning President Bush’s rhetoric and tactics against him.

We oppose the development, storage, and use of weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological, or nuclear) by any country.

We are based in Canada, but have allies and supporters in the US and around the world.

+++++

In February 2003, Rooting Out Evil will be sending a team of volunteer weapons inspectors into that greatest of rogue nations, the United States of America.

We have selected the US as our first priority based on criteria provided by the Bush administration. According to those criteria, the most dangerous states are those run by leaders who:

1) have massive stockpiles of chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons;
2) ignore due process at the United Nations;
3) refuse to sign and honour international treaties; and
4) have come to power through illegitimate means.

The current US administration fulfills all these criteria. And so, again following Bush’s guidelines, Rooting Out Evil is demanding that his administration allow immediate and unfettered access to international weapons inspectors to search out their caches of chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons.

We are currently assembling an international team of weapons inspectors - so far, it includes a Canadian Member of Parliament, a British Member of Parliament, a union leader, and a professor. And we're busy recruiting scientists, religious leaders, military personnel, and others.

On the weekend of February 22/23, the team will attempt to cross into the United States on a mission of peace, and will be greeted on the US side by Americans who favour true global cooperation, an end to weapons of mass destruction, and a regime change in the US at the next election. The team will then attempt to inspect a US site suspected of housing weapons of mass destruction.

UPDATE: February 10, 2003

At this time, plans are being developed to send our international weapons inspection team to a site in the Washington D.C. area on February 22 and 23, 2003. We have made contact with partner groups in Washington, and have received confirmation from some of the individuals we have asked to serve on our international team.

The current inspection team includes: Libby Davies, Member of Parliament (Canada - NDP) and newly appointed NDP House Leader; Alan Simpson, Member of Parliament (United Kingdom - Labour) and head of Labour Against the War; Christy Ferguson, Rooting Out Evil organizer; Deborah Bourque, National President, Canadian Union of Postal Workers; Steven Staples, Defense Analyst, Polaris Institute; Mel Watkins, Professor Emeritus - Economics and Political Science, University of Toronto; Samaa Elibyari, Canadian Islamic Congress; Ed Hammond, Director of The Sunshine Project; Peter Shorett, Director of Programmes, Council for Responsible Genetics.

Supporters and the general public will be invited to help send off the team from Ottawa and welcome them to Washington, D.C. We would like to extend our hearty thanks and appreciation to all our honorary inspectors for their financial and moral support.

I agree wholeheartedly. Since the US is in the habit of using lethal nerve agents against its neighbours and its own citizens, it must be disarmed.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Lethal nerve agents? That's a very accurate description of Oprah Winfrey's show.
