No. It was not militarily possible. And if I remind the Court, the dividing line I have put in evidence here between ULIMO and the NPFL is the St Paul River at the so-called St Paul River Bridge. We've covered that before. And this is a huge river and it's a bridge that's the only crossing point. ULIMO is on the other side, the NPFL is on the Bong County side. So you would have to go through that bridge where there are hundreds of soldiers on both sides and the long riverbanks, it just wouldn't work. And the St Paul is the second largest river in Liberia.
