576,000 children were killed by these sanctions. (The New York Times, 12-1-95).
Albright was asked by interviewer Lesley Stahl: “We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?” Former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, replied: “I think this is a very hard choice. But the price–we think the price is worth it.” (May 1996)
ALBRIGHT’S CONFUSED VIEWS OF MORALITY
Madeleine Albright also stated there is a special place in Hell for women who don’t support Hillary Clinton. Specifically, she said the following: “It’s not done and you have to help. Hillary Clinton will always be there for you. And just remember, there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.” (The Guardian, 2-6-16).
Here she is also accusing someone of “defending Saddam Hussein” when she was asked the very basic question of “why does the US support states like Israel who commit crimes as heinous as Saddam’s to further its interests if it indeed cares about the morality of these crimes?”
Her response is accusing the students in the room of defending Saddam Hussein!
Hassan Qazwini (‘Iraqi’ Shia leader of Iranian descent) in Michigan honoured her as a guest years later.
