Surely the issue at hand is not to 'nuke Mecca' (and Baghdad was next in line as one pro US online journal advocated) and return to diplomacy (even Colin Powell: ' asked how many Iraqis had died in the slaughter of the Gulf war, who replied: ''frankly it'ds a number I'm not much interested in') is advocating diplomacy etc re Israel and Palestine. I would regretfully submit that some with less than the high integrity of discussion, which have made CASI an internationsal model, may have been worried by CASI. Surely individuals in Baghdad should be involved in itds views as to whether it is nuked? Given the supression of mounting dissent by the UK Parliamentarians and international outrage - and attempts to hush their voices, it seems we are in a dusky area. At the end of the day we may be involved in another Hiroshima/Nagasaki - a first for the UK but not for the US. We need, I feel to be very careful before excluding debate from the possible next Hiroshima victims - which might delete not alone Iraq, but the Middle East - the cradle of civilisation. Sorry again, academics, we ARE a discussion list.
