[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] I think you answer your own question relating to the improbability of such a venture. How would we get thousands or more ordinary people to leave their homes, take their children, catch a plane to Iraq which has dubious water supplies and poor infrastructure, (even if Iraq does treat them kindly) and sit in a tent hoping that their presence will stop a bomb falling - and how long would they stay there? Until there is a "regime change" in USA? Or until they need to get back to work to pay the next mortgage payment or until the children have to sit an important exam? I do know that we committed few feel desperate, but sadly, so many people see it as a war a long way off, even if they do have sympathy for the plight of ordinary Iraqis. Getting them to put their hands in their pocket and give a pound (or dollar) is difficult enough. There is no easy answer. _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
