[ This message has been sent to you via the CASI-analysis mailing list ] [ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Yesterday was the first I had heard of the new flag. NPR. They interviewed several Iraqi citizens and they reflected a number of issues. This new flag did not seem well received. They did not appreciate the similarity to the Israel flag, they did not appreciate the yellow which seemed to single out or privilege the minority Kurds, and they did not appreciate the IGC changing the symbol of their sovereignty with "NO public discussion." For all of the rhetoric of the IGC and the Occupational "authority" relating to democracy, I don't see much of it. Roger Stroope Flagstaff USA Northern Arizona University Graduate Student- Anthropology But make no mistake - as I said earlier - we have high confidence that they have weapons of mass destruction. That is what this war was about and it is about. And we have high confidence it will be found. - White House spokesman Ari Fleischer, press briefing, April 10, 2003 _______________________________________ Sent via the CASI-analysis mailing list To unsubscribe, visit http://lists.casi.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/casi-analysis All postings are archived on CASI's website at http://www.casi.org.uk
