indeed architects are not in the business of destruction, just as doctors are not in the business of killing. As well as the British architectural profession standing up for peace, the British medical profession did it as well.

interestingly Blair considers himself to be a Catholic and yet he lied coldly and deliberately to the Pope - that is seriously tacky.

I believe that you are right to be cautious over the risks to personal liberty and safety in the US - and the UK. I agree that it is too late to be able to stop this Nazi-style attack on Iraq. It is what happens after that that will be the sign to the future.

That is when ordinary people may begin to wake up to the levels of deceit to which they have been subjected, and how - like US postal workers - they are seen as expendable.

It is going to be a very tough learning curve.

I suggest that you read "Hidden Agendas" a book by the highly respected journalist and broadcaster John Pilger.

On the very night before he moved his forces up to Manassas, General Longstreet wrote a letter in which he said that he still hoped, even at that late hour, that the politicians could avert war. I doubt that the high minded Civil War Generals, of either side, would recognise the USA today.
