Us Foreign Policy

EDM number 664 in 2004-05, proposed by Teddy Taylor on 04/02/2005.

That this House is surprised that the US President has made such strong but unsubstantiated attacks on Iran for promoting terrorism while US troops are protecting in Camp Ashraf in Iraq a facility for the training of over 1,000 members of an evil and proscribed terrorist organisation called the MKO, which has killed many innocent Iranians; further questions US support for democracy in Iraq when the US Government not only supported Saddam Hussein for so many years, but provided him with massive amounts of weapons of mass destruction when he was invading Iran, full details of which are published in the US Senate Riegle Report; and believes that there would be merit in the US accepting that Iran is one of the few nations in the Middle East which has, admittedly with limited powers, a democratically-elected president and parliament, which provides freedom of worship and religious practice for Christians and Jews and which has more than 50 per cent. of women students in its many universities.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs, 8 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
