was nominated as honorary guide on March 4, 2004, for his open letter, dated Jan.29, 2004, to General Secretary of the United Nations Kofi Annan. (You may see the letter at www.iacenter.org/rc_un0104.htm.) as a former American general prosecutor at the Justice Department, Ramsey Clark took a firm stand against the violent and illegal policies of George W. Bush, especially the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, in which 40,000 defenseless people were killed. Clark compared Bush to Goering and denounced the accumulation and development of new nuclear weapons by the United States while other countries have been denied the right to have them. He also denounced the violation of de-nuclearization treaties signed by the U.S. government and the deaths of 567,000 Iraqi children caused by 12 years of economical sanctions imposed by the United Nations after U.S. prompting.
