Is there any… any thought of doing airdrops?  Is that too risky at this point? Spokesman :  We have no access to them.  I would venture to say doing airdrops… food airdrops in an active military zone is not something that WFP (World Food Programme) or any of our colleagues would be able to do, just because it's an active conflict zone.  I mean, remember in Syria, the complications there of operating of high altitude airdrops in Deir Ezzour and the complexity of that situation, so I don't believe that's an option for West Mosul.
