Commander of Iranian Revolutionary Guards, General Safavy: U.S. Forces in Falluja Took and Sold Dead Iraqis' Organs

The following are excerpts from statements made by General Yahya Rahim-Safavy, the general commander of the Iranian revolutionary guard corps. Channel 4, Iranian TV aired these statements on February 6, 2005:

General Yahya Rahim-Safavy: [America] could not bring prosperity to the Iraqi public. Security-wise, it is incapable of even protecting itself. Regarding human rights... As you already know, in Falluja for instance, it killed 7,000 people. Falluja had a population of 320,000 people. 200,000 fled. Of the remaining 100,000, the US killed 7,000 by air strikes. They removed organs from the dead in order to sell them or send them [out of Iraq]. A real inhuman action. I don't know if you've seen the films about Abu-Ghureib on the internet. A great scandal.

Mr. Bush says: "I am a leader who brings about peace, stability, and freedom throughout the world." This is a very strong statement. America claims that it is the ruler of the world, and that it must run the entire world. The only force to oppose his claim that the US should run the world and should establish a global rule is the force of the world of Islam, because Islam has a global message.
