      Amnesty International, a sleazy, Jew-dominated, front for the "new world
      order", claims to be a neutral human rights organisation. Their most
      severe recent crime was promoting a false accusation against Iraqi soldiers,
      knowing it would be used to promote the 1991 war, while disingenuously
      claiming to be against the war. Now they are campaigning to disarm
      third world people and leave them defenseless against imperialist aggression
      while pretending to be helping ensure the safety of third world people.
      They may also be planning to disarm working class Americans. I suppose
      seeing reports of armed Iraqis fighting the world's most powerful army to
      a standstill in defense of their country leaves a bad taste in their mouths.

      Republic.

      Arms Linked To Repression, They Say

      London--For farmers in Uganda, AK-47 submachine guns [AK-47 is an assault
      rifle, not a submachinegun --Kevin] are used instead of spears. [and why
      not, an AK-47 is a more effective weapon than a spear! --Kevin] In Somalia,
      weapons are so common that some children are named "Uzi" or "AK."

      These findings were included in a report released Thursday by Amnesty
      International, Oxfam, and the International Action Network on Small Arms
      as they launched a campaign in more than 50 countries aimed at controlling
      what they call a dangerously unregulated global arms trade. They say that
      trade routinely allows weapons to reach repressive governments, human rights
      abusers and criminals.

      The report said the possession of increasingly lethal weapons is becoming
      an integral part of daily life in many parts of the world. It also said
      that the U.S.-led war on terror, launched after the September 11, 2001,
      attacks in the United States, has "fueled weapons proliferation rather than
      focusing political will on controlling arms."

      Increasing numbers of arms are being exported, especially by the United
      States and Britain, to newfound allies such as Pakistan, Indonesia and the
      Philippines, regardless of concerns about human rights abuses there, the
      report said.

      The "Control Arms" campaign focuses on promoting a new international treaty
      covering arms transfers, as well as a number of regional and local measures
      designed to limit arms proliferation and misuse.

      The groups began a petition drive aimed at gathering one million signatures
      supporting the draft international Arms Trade Treaty, which they hope to
      have adopted by the United Nations and its member countries by 2006.
