The full-page ads appear in the Daily Telegraph, the Financial Times, The Independent and The Guardian today, laying out a six-point plan for disarming Saddam Hussein without going to war with Iraq.
The ads have been placed by a group of US Christian missionaries called the Sojourners, and sponsored by Business Leaders for Sensible Priorities. The ads direct readers to the Sojourners' website and also feature a US telephone number where more information can be obtained.
The pages of The Guardian, the favoured title of left-leaning readers in the UK, are groaning with full-page anti-war ads. As well as the Sojourners' execution, there is an open letter to all MPs from a group called Our World Our Say.
There is also a full-page ad headlined "Manifesto for Peace and Progress", signed by prominent left-wing figures such as Vanessa Redgrave, the singer Jane Birkin, and the playwright Harold Pinter. It says readers can add their names to the manifesto at the Peace & Progress website.
