Force the only way

Sir - Having had an aunt raped and executed, a two-year-old cousin torched to death, and an uncle killed during interrogation by the Iraqi regime, I welcomed the Government's dossier (report, 3 Dec) on Saddam Hussein's crimes.

Though it is too late for several million Iraqis, I hope that this new-found moral path will result in the overthrow of this terrible regime and the installation of a true, proportionally representative democracy.

The Left accuses the Government of using the suffering of Iraqis as propaganda for a war on Saddam, though it fails to recognise that the vast majority of Iraqis believe that only external military intervention can rid Iraq and its people of Saddam - proved by the two million dead Iraqis.

Government right to publish dossier

Sir - As an Iraqi, I welcome the publication of the Government's dossier on human rights abuses in Iraq. This is long overdue. For more than 30 years, we have been campaigning to highlight the reality of this regime.

Saddam's weapons of mass destruction are not his only threat to the world; his lethal and ruthless technique of oppression for decades has resulted in the death of thousands of Iraqi people, and it is time that he and his clique were held responsible for these crimes.

UN inspectors should not only investigate weapons sites in Iraq, but also demand entry to Iraq's many prisons and detention centres, where some of the most appalling techniques of torture are practised on political prisoners.
