Dear Diarmuid & List, Looks like you've got the right idea, in conducting the Rally. As for Tom Levitt M.P., supporting the debate surely that, in itself, stimulates interest amongst the community, thus profile-raising the campaign? The Korean War (1950-53) was the first war fought under the UN flag. A USA Secr. of Defense-site claims 22 countries were on the US/UN side. Including Britain. "See-saw" fighting took place along the 38th paralell, dividing North & South Korea. A total of ca 4 million lives were claimed. Harry Truman (Hiroshima/Nagasaki) was President from the outset, later Eisenhower, who signalled that he was prepared to Use nuclear weapons against major opponent, China. General MacArthur wanted to invade China. Has all this got anything to do with Iraq? What do you think? Greetings, Bert G.
