Talk:Ioan Aurial Dunantu
No more ICRC?
I presume Dunantu is *there's* Henri Dunant. Does the NAS replace the ICRC? That would be in conflict with the relocation of the ICRC headquarters in Reondradun (Strasbourg), which IIRC I proposed around the time the IB trailer was made. I contemplated making it the topic of my newsflash snippet, but settled for the lower-profile wine theft story. ;)
The NAS appears to have a narrower field of goals than the ICRC. Is that meant to go with the generally less globalistic theme of IB? The Jervan 09:20, 10 May 2005 (PDT)
- Yes, Dunantu is a fictional character I based on Henri Dunant (the swiss are not as friendly *there*). The NAS is indeed the (more or less) equivalent to the red cross which never existed *there* (although the NAS does use a red maltese cross on white as its symbol for completely unrelated reasons). The absence of a geneva convention meant that its scope is lessen and the society does not benefit for a legal protection (soldiers in general just tend to avoid shooting at them to avoid bad karma and the like).--Marc Pasquin 17:48, 15 May 2005 (PDT)
- Indeed. I really can't see Helvetians being involved in neutral aid. Looting the wounded, yes, helping them, no. Deiniol 10:29, 16 May 2005 (PDT)
