There's more to Iraq than making a fast buck

  • Comment

That the article 'Brits to miss out on Iraq rebuild' (AJ 20.3.03) was published within two days of the start of the war on Iraq was wholly inappropriate .

Although I am not privy to all the facts, I am sure some of your readers would agree with me in denouncing the war on Iraq without the UN backing. I am sure that others would simply denounce it on principle.

Reporting in this way implies that architects are concerned solely with the commercial opportunities that may exist within Iraq after the war, which I believe is not the case. I have no doubt that British architects, would, as you reported, be more sensitive to the cultural issues in rebuilding.However, I feel it was particularly insensitive to talk about who is getting what out of this tragic situation at this time.
