Reader feedback: War won't help

Re: Dzurinda is right, Letter to the Editor, Feb 24 - March 2, Vol 9, No 7

If anyone really believes that there will be minimal civilian casualties during the war and that the aftermath won't be horrendous take a closer look at what Iraq is like after two wars (Iraq/Iran and the Gulf War) and years of sanctions. This is a country that had one of the highest levels of education and health care in the Middle East. Now the infrastructure is crumbling, children are dying of leukaemia, most [cases] probably caused by chemicals and toxins released during the Gulf War. If you want to encourage democracy in the Middle East, why not start with friends like Saudi Arabia, which is anything but democratic.
