Despite the danger and the tragic fate of some of their colleagues, most war correspondents regard being at the center of military action as a high point in their career. Twice, in France, once in Strasburg and once in Nevers, the author had been in the thick of European farmers' demonstrations against proposals for European farm prices. For this conflict, the author will be content with memories and count himself fortunate to be sitting in a warm office, far from bombs and bullets and able to speculate how the war might affect journalism. Once bullets began to fly and US troops made fast progress across the desert to Baghdad, Iraq, the price dropped in anticipation of a short and sharp campaign. Iraq is second only in oil production capacity to Saudi Arabia, so if its oil wells and refineries are out for long, the effects could be significant, unless other countries increase production. Grain markets will also be affected. Humanitarian Aid Office of the EU is making available funds totaling k21m for emergency relief including basic food supplies for Iraq.
