Hello all, Mr Abbas Alnasrawi is right. According to a study, published by The American Academy of Arts & Sciences: "War with Iraq, costs, consequences & alternatives", written by Carl Kaysen, Steven E.Miller, Martin B.Malin, William D.Nodrhaus & John D.Steinbruner, a study that can be found here: http://www.amacad.org/publications/monographs/War_with_Iraq.pdf the real costs of a war against Iraq and the aftermath, could reach the figure (beyond any imagination!) of 1.900 billion $, in the worst case scenario. This could mean the deathblow of world-economy. Nor the American, nor the British government have told their citizens this dark side of their war-games. Who is going to pay for this? Who will suffer? Not only the Iraqi's, but the whole world, and especially in the third world. Can you imagine the consequences? It's a mad, mad, mad world, with Dr Strangelove at the wheel. The peace-movement has a great responsibility in the world's future. We must focus on these kind of facts and explain them to the world-community . Greetings.
