Dear Dirk, you wrote ``One very high-ranking official of a UN-related organisation, whose name I won't reveal (because he asked), told us off the record that there has been a study about the effects of a limited American invasion, only to topple SH and to turnover Iraqi leadership. The results of this study are quite astonishing: there would be hundreds of thousands of deaths among the civilian population, mainly because of the collapse of the rationing system and the vulnerable Iraqi economy.'' Are you able to give any details about this study? Can we obtain it without compromising your source? Most list members know enough about the parlous and precarious state of Iraq's civilian and economic infrastructure not to need a study to confirm this, but it would be very useful in countering pro-war propaganda when war on Iraq is back on the media agenda. It's always useful to be able to quote a credible study. Thanks.
