[rohrpost] '55 most wanted' playing cards aim for U.S. regime change

April 25, 2003

	Info and ordering:

In the wake of the U.S.'s "pre-emptive" destruction of Iraq, her
people, and her culture, the Trade Regulation Organization is issuing
a "55 most wanted" playing-card deck ( similar
to the one that the Pentagon issued two weeks ago in Iraq

The TRO, estimating that the U.S. governing regime is no longer
consistent with world peace or prosperity, hopes that the playing
cards will show the way to regime change and, eventually, large-scale
war crimes proceedings.

According to the TRO, the victims of the unprovoked U.S. war fall into
three categories:

* People. In the 1991 Gulf War, 100,000-200,000 civilians and
80,000-150,000 soldiers were killed directly by bombs. 
   In addition, poisoning from the U.S.'s depleted uranium (DU)  
weapons - banned by the Geneva Convention - has led to hundreds of
thousands more Iraqi cancers and deaths; the 80,000 cases of "Gulf War
syndrome" among U.S. veterans are most likely also due to DU exposure.
   In the 2003 Iraq War, the U.S. once again used massive amounts of
DU in its weapons. Iraqi death counts are unknown or unpublicized.
(See for links.)

* Culture. Because of a U.S. policy giving carte blanche to looters -
only the Oil Ministry and Interior Ministry were protected - the
Middle East's leading archaeological museum lost almost all of its
unique ancient artifacts, and two libraries full of irreplaceable
medieval manuscripts were destroyed. (See for

* Prospects. The U.S. is now considered the primary world criminal by
the vast majority of the world's citizens. The implications for the
U.S.'s long-term prospects are grim.

Many of those featured on the "55 most wanted" cards are in government, 
and removing these people from power will go a long way towards making 
the world a safer place.

Others include corporate CEOs; in those cases, the corporations
themselves must be dissolved or otherwise rendered incapable of
further harm.

"If one day the people on these cards are indeed brought to justice,
'just following orders' or 'supporting our troops' will be no excuse
for the rest of us," said TRO spokeswoman Hedwig Ixtabal-Mono.

The Trade Regulation Organization, committed to making trade benefit
poor people, is the World Trade Organization's successor; see for more details.
