    Scanning today's news, I found this in a BBC article:

    Referring to a US-sponsored conference on why their is so much anti-American opinion world-wide,
    "But before it started, the author Salman Rushdie had some very public advice for everyone involved.

    "He warned that attacking Iraq would unleash what he described as a generation-long plague of anti-Americanism that could make the present epidemic look like a time of good health. "

    Yet, we have Rushdie cited here as supporting a US attack in Iraq...

    Does anyone have an accurate and reliable quote from Rushdie and the US and Iraq?

    Best regards, Lawry
