Dear Suzy & List, This isn't to answer your, very pertinent questions, there is plenty of expertise on the CASI site to deal with that, very well. Your suggestion for an "Iraq Monitor" is very good, it implies favouring a long-term view of developments in Iraq. As we all know, repercussions of longlasting warfare/sanctions are likely to continue for many months, years, decades....Few would see cause to "uncork the Champaigne", in celebration, even after ending of sanctions.But, should monitoring be exclusively for Iraq, or for the Middle East, e.g. including the "Road Map" etc.? Like you, I am asking some questions. Greetings, Bert Gedin (Birmingham, UK). >From: "Suzy T.
