Dear Yasser, All of us concerned know Iraq is a political minefield, this, as encapsulated in its title, is a discussion list. All political sides are generating rumours. We non Arab speaking people on the list need no patronising, neither do the people in Iraq 'who only have Saddam's papers to read'. Iraqis know exactly the games which are going on. To step in to other's conflicts is as arrogant as previous colonialism, but this may well be a nuclear war. Many ignorant non Arab speaking people are foolishly prepared to go to Iraq as human shields in the hope that relatives of Iraqi's in the west are saved from vapourisation. Their courage would have added resonace if Iraqis here joined them. An aspect that us non Arab speakers find confusing is that those who have relatives in Iraq are prepared to accept their decimation from the safe haven of London, Birmingham, Glasgow or Cardiff. Maybe I am missing something in which you can enlighten us. Kindest, felicity a. ---------- >From: "Yasser Alaskary" <firstname.lastname@example.org> >To: "CASI discuss list" <email@example.com> >Subject: [casi] Hayat article >Date: Tue, Sep 17, 2002, 12:40 am > > > [ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] > > According to an article in al-Hayat paper, the US is already occupying > western Iraq after the intense bombing that occuried a week ago.
