If it is true that officials of Basra have asked the Int'l Red Coss to provide an escorted safe passage to allow Basra engineers access to the electrical power plant that was struck cutting off pure water supply to Basra civilians, would that not be more effective and faster than the complicated plans the Brits are projecting for building a "water pipeline from Kuwait to Basra"? The Red Cross reply was (I think!) that a temporary cease-fire on both sides would be required forRed Cross action to save lives in Basra. Anybody know more about this sensible proposal in the midst of complete insanity? pg, nyc _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
