War is an obscenity: Sir William Refshauge, 1991

Sir William Refshauge wrote this article for MAPW's newsletter, 'Pulse' in February 1991, at the time of the first Gulf War. He argues that war is an obscenity and puts a strong case for supporting the role of the United Nations. Whilst dismissing "peace at any price", Sir William notes the human and ecological consequences of war.
