Dear list, In order that this list maintains the close focus and clear-headedness which has made it a useful resource over the past three or four years, I think we need to start steering the subject matter back to sanctions on Iraq. Obviously, the last 10 days have been an exceptional period in terms of world events and it is right that the discussion on this list was broadened as a result. However, I think we've now reached the time when it will be more profitable to move threads of discussion which do not bear upon sanctions on Iraq to other more appropriate forums. This is a view which has been expressed to me by several long-standing list contributors, and which fits in with CASI's guidelines for the discussion list. Below I've listed some email groups which I can recommend to people who wish to discuss various aspects of the implications of last week's attacks. Please make an effort to post only messages relating to sanctions on Iraq to the CASI discussion list. Many thanks, Seb Wills CASI lists manager (1) Aftermath-11-September-2001 -- exchanging campaigning information on how to oppose a military response to the atrocity.
