BIAFRA
By Rebecca Mottershead
Rebecca was brought up in Africa, and wonders whether people remember the Biafran war - at the time it was big news. She had air-raid practices where they got under desks, and remembers thinking "a desk isn't going to protect me if we get bombed!" She remembers lying awake worrying about it. It all seems so unneccesary - Iraq isn't our enemy. Saddam is an evil man - he's not going to give up because his people are suffering. In the end, what is it going to solve?
