PostMAPS: Bombing by mistake (Ronald Hilton, USA, 10/16/00 12:51 am)
The posting "A Moderator's Problems" discussed the difficulty of reading maps because of the confusing variants of place names. Misreading a map was the explanation given for the bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Beijing. An eminent WAISer has a startlingly simple explanation. WAISers must learn to read between the lies. He says:
"Did you notice that 'bombing by mistake' the Chinese News Agency's facilities in the Chinese Embassy at Belgrade made it impossible for Milosevic' News Agency to use those facilities after its own communications center was destroyed a few days before?"
