You ask whether we have learnt anything from history and could another Final Solution be allowed to happen? Regrettably, the evidence suggests that the answers are "no" to the first question, and "yes" to the second . The decade-long acceptance of Saddam's genocide of the Marsh Arabs, followed by the chorus of condemnation for the US and the UK's actions, suggest that much of the world are happy to allow continuing genocide. Even Kofi Annan, quoted by the BBC as saying " the UN must do everything in its power to prevent a repeat of the slaughter" appears to believe that letting Saddam continue his genocide of the Marsh Arabs was "everything the UN could do". Twelve years of genocide under Saddam demonstrates the truth of Burke's maxim "All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing". BF, London
