"I want to do what I can to re-awaken people's consciousness." True to his word, Sir Paul will be in Washington D.C. on Thursday to meet with U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell to discuss the issue of land mines. Although the United States has thus far refused to sign the international treaty banning anti-personnel land mines, needing to protect its troops deployed on the Korean peninsula, Secretary Powell is known to be sympathetic to the cause and has promised that the United States will continue to work toward keeping the world safe from the indiscriminate use of land mines.
