Risk Of Terrorist Attack

EDM number 620 in 2002-03, proposed by Paul Flynn on 30/01/2003.

That this House condemns the brutal repressive regime of Saddam Hussein but regrets the Government's failure to provide convincing evidence that he is planning to use weapons of mass destruction; believes that the only likely use of such weapons would be if Saddam Hussein is facing defeat in war when he may, in a final act of desperation, use them against British soldiers; recalls that the most effective way to defeat terrorism is to win over the hearts and minds of terrorist supporters; fears that an attack on Iraq before there is a just settlement in Palestine will be judged by many Muslims as a punitive assault on Islam which will increase the likelihood of a terrorist attack on the UK; and believes that the present crisis is the result of the election of President Bush whose supporters in the Project for a New American Century have long planned to re-order the world in the interests of the United States.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
