[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Some key points: Last night on Question Time, Geoff Hoon admitted that so far no weapons of mass destruction have been found. Tonight on Channel 4 News, Clare Short said that the Iraqis have enough food stored for two months, and that water and power are being restored in Basra after the battles by the Red Cross. The UN has voted to restore the 'Oil for Food' programme..does anyone know how this is going to be adminstered? The experts are now saying that the war is going to be a long haul as guerillas take up arms. Blair said yesterday that 'Iraq will be liberated'. The 'liberators' are clearly not being greeted with open arms. Russians are saying war on Iraq is the most serious crisis since the end of the Cold War. Oil prices are going up but a few months ago a Pentagon spokesman said that enough oil had been stock piled to stabilise prices in event of war. Our protests and pressurising have restrained the US military. Iraqi lives are being saved. But we must keep insisting that we will not accept 'collateral damage' of any kind.
