THE LAUNCHING OF THE BOOK! 

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM...CLICK THIS LINK FOR A CONFIRMATION BY THE FBI! 



Parents and teachers must not be afraid to use the vast potential of the Internet. They must be educated about the risks and benefits of surfing the Net. Some kids become endangered on-line if they are not taught the rules of "driving" on the electronic "SuperHighway". It is necessary to enhance interest and improve visual literacy in a unit by using PowerPoint slides as visuals. 









REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE 



In this project most of the instruction is in the visual mode. Visual literacy will be enhanced. Instruction in the classroom should not be confined to verbal literacy, but should not be confined to visual literacy. Heimich, Molenda and Russel (1982, p. 11) describes visual literacy as the "learned ability to interpret visual messages accurately and to create such messages." Adams and Hamm (1989, p. 26) state that "visual literacy may have become more electronic; but from cave drawings to medieval cathedrals to children's books illustrations it has been a major communication medium." These writers also claim that teaching using visual aids helps students to focus on lessons, retain information and improve psychomotor skills. It adds interest to the class, enhances student involvement and promotes visual thinking and recall. 

It is common knowledge that most students find it much easier to read a book with pictures. This is a multiple symbol system and quite a few researchers have examined the cognitive effects of pictures and text. Kozma studied works by Pressley, Schallert, Levie and Lants and found (p. 183) that the use of pictures with text increase recall, especially in poor readers. These kinds of results imply that, for some learners, the pictorial symbol systems have more meaning than the corresponding linguistic symbol system. 
Pavio's integrated dual-code hypothesis is, "the ability of learners to build both visual and verbal models of mental representations as well as connections between them," (Pavio, quoted Mayer and Anderson 1991, p.484). Mayer in 1989 and again Mayer and Gallini in 1990 examined this hypothesis. The results of these experiments showed that in order to effectively understand scientific explanations there must be a mapping between words and pictures. When verbal and visual explanations were presented together in a co-ordinated way, the creative problem-solving abilities of students were better than when separate verbal and visual explanations were used. In another experiment, Mayer and Gallini (1991) found that when narrations were given before animation, the results on problem-solving were not as good as those students who were exposed to narration with animation. Thus, their findings support Pavio's dual-coding hypothesis. 
Storey and Howe (1989) did a study on the effects of visual and verbal modes of presentation on children's retention of images and words and found that their findings supported Pavio's dual-coding hypothesis. They found firstly, that both treatment groups (ie. those who were presented with visual and those with visual-verbal information) represented more information in pictorial than in verbal form.A Notes Page act as a script for the presentation. The information on each of the slide is written out in more detail and this helps to formulate thoughts. As much text as can fit on one page is entered in each Notes Page. Short quotations may be used for humor which adds a transition. A TECHNOLOGY PLAN

THE UNIT-A SUMMARY OF CONTENT 


Upgrade your networking software, hardware, and computer environment in order to minimize hazards and to meet legal and ethical standards. 

PowerPoint slides and images used as visuals enhance interest and learning about the content of this multi-faceted thematic unit. In this project you will be given several Powerpoint slides and asked to use the "Notes Page" View of each slide and design and type a summary page based on several slides of a presentation. 

LESSON CONTENT MATERIAL. 
SECURITY 

Allowing for access to shared data raises the problem of security. Before putting information on a network, decisions must be made as to who will have access to what data and the level of security required. Adequate security controls must be implemented in the network software. If the network is accesible through a dial-up connection or the Internet, security concerns are multiplied. Security "firewalls" can be set up in which a single computer is directly connected to the Internet. Files are transferred between the Internet computer and network under tight security control. Not all threats to network security come from outside the organization. Procedures must be in place to protect data from theft or damage by disgruntled or terminated employees. Employees may bring in illegal copies of software and install them on their workstations, possibly making them available for others to copy. A company may then be held liable for software piracy. 


Networking Feds seek wiretap access via VoIP By Declan McCullagh CNET News.com January 8, 2004, 7:42 AM PT The FBI and the Justice Department have renewed their efforts to wiretap voice conversations carried across the Internet. The agencies have asked the Federal Communications Commission to order companies offering voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service to rewire their networks to guarantee police the ability to eavesdrop on subscribers' conversations. Without such mandatory rules, the two agencies predicted in a letter to the FCC last month that "criminals, terrorists, and spies (could) use VoIP services to avoid lawfully authorized surveillance." The letter also was signed by the Drug Enforcement Administration. This is not the first time the Bush administration has expressed concern about terrorists and other lawbreakers using VoIP to evade wiretaps. As previously reported by CNET News.com, a proposal presented quietly to the FCC in July sought guaranteed surveillance access to broadband providers. But the latest submission, which follows a recent FCC forum on Internet telephony, is more detailed than before and specifically targets VoIP providers as a regulatory focus. In general, VoIP providers have pledged to work with police, and some, like Level 3 Communications, do not oppose the regulations the FBI is seeking. Others, like a coalition of 12 smaller VoIP providers including BullDog Teleworks and PingTone Communications, have told the FCC that "there are various industry initatives under way and the commission should allow those initiatives time to succeed before preemptively regulating." Federal and local police rely heavily on wiretaps. In 2002, the most recent year for which information is available, police intercepted nearly 2.2 million conversations with court approval, according to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. Wiretaps for that year cost taxpayers $69.5 million, and approximately 80 percent were related to drug investigations. Those statistics do not include approximately the same number of additional wiretaps authorized by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. When weighing the FBI's request, the FCC will have to decide whether a 1994 law called the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) applies to VoIP providers. The law is ambiguous. It clearly requires "telecommunications carriers" to provide ready wiretapping access while explicitly exempting "information services." If the FCC decides CALEA does not apply, the debate would shift to Congress, which could decide to amend the law. When Internet links are used to carry voice calls that begin and end in the traditional, circuit-switched network--a move that Verizon Communications announced Wednesday--that would easily fall within CALEA's existing definitions. But Internet-to-Internet voice links like those offered by VoIP companies Vonage and Skype are closer to information services and fall into a regulatory gray area. The status of voice conversations carried through instant-messaging programs is even more unclear, as is the FCC's ability to compel overseas VoIP providers to comply with U.S. rules. "The FCC should ignore pleas about national security and sophisticated criminals because sophisticated parties will use noncompliant VoIP, available open source and offshore," said Jim Harper of Privacilla.org, a privacy advocacy Web site. "CALEA for VoIP will only be good for busting small-time bookies, small-time potheads and other nincompoops." One unusual section of the FBI letter is that it claims the bureau is seeking to protect Americans' privacy rights: "Mandatory CALEA compliance by VoIP providers would better protect the privacy of VoIP users than a voluntary approach. CALEA protects the privacy of surveillance suspects by requiring carriers to provision the surveillance in a confidential manner." Otherwise, the FBI argues, a VoIP company might turn over a "full pipe" to police that would include conversations of more people than necessary. At least one FCC commissioner has expressed strong support for sweeping VoIP into CALEA's requirements, which currently apply only to telephone companies. "We must understand the concerns raised by DOJ and FBI that classifying Vonage's VoIP as an information service severely undercuts CALEA," Jonathan Adelstein said last month. "VoIP jeopardizes the ability of federal, state and local governments to protect public safety and national security against domestic and foreign threats. Public safety is not negotiable." 



THE TARGET GROUP-CONCERNED ADULTS WHO ARE COMPUTER-SAVVY AND A KNOWLEDGE OF THE USE THE SOFTWARE PowerPoint, E-MAIL, THE INTERNET, WORDPROCESSING AND CREATIVE-WRITING IS NECESSARY. 


PARENTS. 
TEACHERS. 
ADULT STUDENTS. 








A TECHNOLOGY PLAN. 

Adult students who are already proficient in using the software PowerPoint and who are experienced computer users will work on-line and participate in developing the NotesPage portion of a PowerPoint presentation prepared by the teacher. A unit of study designed by the teacher on the theme "Upgrading your computer networking hardware, software and networked peripherals such as the printer, the learning environment, in order to minimize hazards associated with computer usage". A diskette with the content material and the PowerPoint slides will also be mailed to each student by e-mail. 

Students' interest will increase with the use of these PowerPoint slides and images which are visuals; memory will be enhanced and teaching becomes effective. The teacher functions as a facilitator responding to questions by e-mail. Each week lecture, assignments, readings, and links to related World Wide Web sites will be posted. Students can access course-work materials at any time, 24 hours per day. Technical assistance will be available via the telephone and e-mail. 









OBJECTIVES OF THE Project. 


To enhance interest in the unit with the use of images. 

To enhance literacy. 






SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES OF THE UNIT. 


At the end of this curriculum unit the student will: 


(1) Be able to write texts from graphics. 

(2) Appreciate the use of audio-visuals and Powerpoint slides in enhancing interest in this unit.

This is an educational project...
A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS!...USING POWERPOINT SLIDES AND IMAGES TO TEACH. 


AN EXCITING EDUCATIONAL TOOL!...ABSTRACT OF THE PROJECT IS COMING SOON TO A COMPUTER NEAR YOU. 






CONTENT OF THE UNIT. 


This is an integrated customized unit based on Upgrading your networking hardware, software, information system, telecommunications networks and applications, computer security issues, privacy issues, and ethical issues in information systems. 
Integrating technology into your classroom is fun and easy. Microsoft 2000is a valuable tool software package for teachers. Computers are a great asset to students with disabilities. All students must have equal access. 

INTRODUCTION. 


In the USA, "individulized" or learner-centered instruction should be promoted and this is the reason why I chose this method. Competition should be promoted too. The increasingly "friendly" nature of most computer software packages on the market make it easy for students to maintain their interest and if students are already computer-literate they will be even more anxious to learn by this method. The computer is a wonderful tool. A change in attitude can be observed as students use this tool. Students can slowly climb the literacy ladder with the assistance of technology. 
A TECHNOLOGY PLAN 


POWERPOINT 2000!...A PRESENTATION TOOL SOFTWARE! A Notes Page act as a script for the PowerPoint presentation. The information on each of the slide is written out in more detail and this helps to formulate thoughts. As much text as can fit on one page is entered in each Notes Page.

Sample Readings 

A Critique of Cooperative Learning Methods. 


An eclectic approach to teaching!...Say this in images! 

Confucius, a Chinese philosopher taught that teachers should use different teaching methods to match the learning styles of students. In China, teacher presentation is the primary teaching method used today. 


Cooperative learning as a teaching method has a special meaning for today's Chinese teenagers and children. In 1975 China adopted a one-child per family policy as a birth control measure in order to check on the fast growing population. 

As Yang (1994) stated " the only child has strong intention of egoism. Such an "only-child" may not know how to cooperate with their peers at school. Cooperative learning should be encouraged in China in order to prepare them for a successful life in the future. For Mao Tse-tung, education was a comprehensive process that was ideologically connected to the political and economic goals of the society he envisioned. The school system that Mao Tse-tung helped to create in the People's Republic of China emphasized the relationship between politics and education. School is indeed a miniature society.

Mideast - AFP Iraqis answer US call to restore order and services in Baghdad 52 minutes ago Add Mideast - AFP to My Yahoo! BAGHDAD (AFP) - Hundreds of Iraqis, including police officers, turned up in response to a US appeal to help restore order after weeks of bombardment were followed by an orgy of looting, AFP reporters said. AFP Photo Latest news: · Residents Say They Saw Saddam's Son After Bombing Reuters - 7 minutes ago · World Finance Officials Discuss Iraq Aid AP - 8 minutes ago · Looters Ransack Baghdad's Antiquities Museum Reuters - 8 minutes ago Special Coverage They converged on the Palestine Hotel where US officers and journalists are housed after foreign radio stations broadcast a call for qualified people to come forward. Among them were a first group of seven Iraqi police officers led by a colonel. Colonel Ahmad Abdulrazzak Said wore his olive green uniform and was accompanied by six other officers in civilian dress. US Marines searched him at length at the entrance. "Who is it? Where is he coming from?" a young soldier asked. The colonel showed his identity card and introduced himself in Arabic, as a military interpreter from Kuwait translated his replies to the marines from behind a pair of trendy sunglasses. The colonel put his police beret back on and mustering as much dignity as he could, with a US Marines' hand on his neck, told reporters he had come with colleagues to help end the looting which has plagued Baghdad since US forces took control of the capital on Wednesday. "Why did you come in uniform?" one of the other policemen asked the senior officer. "It is more dignified, I came here to do my job," Said replied. The Iraqi policemen filed into the hotel's conference room along with US officials and representatives of non-governmental organisations such as Doctors without Borders (news - web sites). Public services, in particular water and electricity, have been out in the capital for many days. Other Iraqis also converged on the city centre hotel requesting to be able to use journalists' satellite phones to call their relatives abroad after the collapse of communications facilities. Telephone exchanges were among the targets of US-British bombers which began blasting away at the infrastructure on March 20. The rush outside the hotel caused the first traffic jam in three weeks amid a din of honking car horns on al-Fardus square, adding an air of normal times to the capital which plunged into anarchy after the collapse of Saddam Hussein (news - web sites)'s regime. Traffic appeared to be returning across the city, but any flow was slowed by checkpoints set up by US forces and also the curiosity of drivers who like to inspect the troops in full combat gear beside their armoured vehicles.

LATEST FROM NEWSWEEK • Special war section • Q&A on smart weapons Who Will Try Iraqi War Criminals? By Ed Finn Posted Wednesday, March 19, 2003, at 3:19 PM PT 
In his speech to the nation Monday, President Bush promised that Iraqi war criminals would be tried and punished—but he didn't specify which criminals or in which court they would be tried. Which Iraqis will be tried, and who will judge them? The answers depend largely on the outcome of the war, once it's clear who's still alive to stand trial. Most experts agree that war-crimes trials will be limited to indictments against a small fraction of the thousands of likely suspects, since wiping out Iraq's government infrastructure (on top of its economic and military infrastructure) will make it that much harder to build a new state. In fact, the U.S. government has kept its official list of Iraqi war criminals extremely short, even though hundreds of officials have been implicated in the use of chemical weapons against Iraqi Kurds in 1988. It's likely that only the top echelons of the military will be tried—perhaps 50 people, perhaps more, depending on who you ask and whether or not local commanders fight. (If they surrender, they might escape prosecution.) For the invading Americans, "who" is tried is almost less important than "how," because these trials give the United States a much-needed chance to exhibit fairness and restraint after initiating a war. Possible trial venues include: International Criminal Court: This one can probably be ruled out—neither the U.S. nor Iraq ever agreed to it. Ironically, it might be legally possible to try British or Australian troops in the ICC for war crimes if they commit any atrocities, since their nations are signatories. U.N. ad hoc tribunal: This is a special international court that has to be mandated by the Security Council—recent examples include courts created to try war criminals from the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. Considering the intense misgivings fellow Security Council members like France and Russia have about the war, it is unlikely that the United States will ask them to create a tribunal. And even if they did, there's another snag if the blue helmets show up—no U.N. court can sentence a war criminal to death. U.S. federal courts: Under the War Crimes Act of 1996, war crimes by or against U.S. citizens can be prosecuted in American federal courts. This option also seems unlikely, however, because many of the crimes likely to be prosecuted involve Iraqi officials assaulting their own citizens. Local Iraqi courts: These might do for small-fry Baath loyalists. After all, the United States will be trying to create a respectable criminal justice system in Iraq, and war criminals would provide useful fodder to get things rolling. But it's unlikely that any of the regime's kingpins would face a local court, since there would be too many opportunities for political skullduggery and old allegiances to taint the process. Hybrid courts: All the rage since their success in Sierra Leone, hybrid courts bring together a combination of local and international jurists. The idea is to mix the grass-roots appeal of civil courts with the respectability and fence-mending powers of international courts. This option also allows the United States to involve European jurists without having to go through the United Nations. The flexibility of a hybrid court will be attractive to post-Iraq planners not because of its appeal to international justice but because it will allow the United States to better trade amnesty for information while still satisfying world opinion. Say the United States invades Iraq and raids all the bunkers and palaces but doesn't find weapons of mass destruction or Saddam Hussein. In that case, the post-war administration's first priority will be to pump Iraq's surviving officials for information—a process that could carry over to war crimes courts. If you're wondering what war crimes are, Explainer has covered this before. Next question? Explainer thanks Ruth Wedgwood, professor of International Law and Diplomacy at John Hopkins University and senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations; David Phillips, deputy director of the Center for Preventative Action and senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations; and Reed Brody, special counsel for Human Rights Watch. of statistics and facts on topics at home and abroad.

“I kind of felt sorry for them,” said one U.S. military official, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. “A lot of them looked hungry. They haven’t been fed in a while.” He spoke after U.S. Marines and their allies took control of the strategic port city of Umm Qasr and with it, Iraq’s access to the Persian Gulf. The outclassed Iraqis fought with small arms, pistols, machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. Authorities said the nation’s southern oil fields would be secured by day’s end. At the same time, the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division surged 100 miles into Iraq. Much more was to come — an extraordinary land-based juggernaut of allied weaponry and troops was caught in an enormous traffic jam in Kuwait, ready to strike when it could cross the border. SOME RESISTANCE There were pockets of resistance, some of it stiff; a second combat death was reported Friday, a member of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force who was wounded while battling a platoon of Iraqi infantry. But often, the opponent advanced with a white flag in hand instead of a rifle. Within a few hours of crossing into southern Iraq, the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit encountered 200 or more Iraqi troops seeking to surrender. One group of 40 Iraqis marched down a two-lane road toward the Americans and gave up. Another group of Iraqi soldiers alongside a road waved a white flag and their raised hands, trying to flag down a group of journalists so they could surrender. Forty to 50 Iraqi soldiers surrendered to a Marine traffic control unit. They came down the road in the open back of a troop vehicle, their hands in the air for about a mile before they reached the Marines. Their decision to give up the fight was not unexpected, or unprompted; for months, Iraq has been bombarded with messages from the Americans, urging its soldiers to refuse to fight. • In the battle zone • Iraq interactive library • Targets in Iraq • Target Baghdad • Urban warfare • Allied deployments • The 1991 oil fires • Tools of warfare • Scuds and Arrows • World Reax • NBC: Video reports from the field • Complete coverage: Conflict with Iraq At a Pentagon news conference Friday, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld called on Iraq’s military to “do the honorable thing, stop fighting that you may live to enjoy a free Iraq, where you and your children can grow and prosper.” How many Iraqis had surrendered? No one knew for sure. Rumsfeld said he knew of a few hundred, and others who just quit fighting. “A lot of people just leave and melt into the countryside,” he said. In Baghdad, however, an Iraqi military spokesman denied there had been any large-scale surrender. “The 51st Army Division is still fighting the invading troops ferociously and courageously and inflicting upon the enemy forces the ugliest losses,” he said, reading a statement on Iraqi television Saturday. GROUND ADVANCE FASTER THAN PLANNED Rumsfeld said the allied forces were advancing and now controlled “a growing portion of the country of Iraq.” The captured territory included two airfields in western Iraq. The ground advance into Iraq appeared to be moving faster than planned. Units reached locations in Iraq 24 hours ahead of their expected arrival time, according to several reporters attached to those units. The Army’s 3rd Infantry Division was following a path through the desert west of the Euphrates River, avoiding populated areas. It appeared that strategists sought to minimize civilian and military casualties by flanking most Iraqi units and going straight for the Republican Guard around Baghdad. The bulk of the allied force hadn’t even entered Iraq yet. 'Target: Iraq' on MSNBC TV All day, all night coverage • MSNBC brings you live coverage of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Tom Brokaw and Lester Holt anchor, with reports from Peter Arnett in Baghdad. There was a huge traffic jam at the border - thousands of vehicles parked in parallel rows, nothing but columns of trucks, Humvees, oil tankers, flatbed tucks, armored vehicles and vehicles of every stripe, from horizon to horizon. The traffic was so bad that it took 6½ hours for one unit to go 51 miles, in swirling dust. Crossing the border Friday morning, the 3rd Battalion of the 7th Marine Infantry faced little resistance. Tanks attached to the battalion attacked five Iraqi tanks just north of the border, destroying them easily. TAKING SAFWAN The battalion passed the brown, stone rubble of several buildings it had shelled just minutes before — the air still held the acrid smell of explosives — and at least five enormous pictures of a smiling Saddam Hussein, some with him wearing a robe, others with him in a headscarf, that stood intact at the border post. They reached the town of Safwan, where speakers warned Iraqis to stay out of the Marines’ way. A few ventured outside: A man on the side of the road bearing a white flag. Another in a long, gray robe, prostrate on the ground, apparently in prayer. “I never thought I’d see this place,” said Cpl. Matt Nale, 31, of Seattle, Wash. He stuck his head out of the top of an Amtrack armored personnel carrier, looked around, smiled and repeatedly nodded with wonder. The Marines later took control of positions mostly abandoned by Iraq’s 32nd Mechanized Infantry Brigade, blowing up a few abandoned tanks and armored personnel carriers and engaging in short firefights with a few Iraqi soldiers who had stayed back to defend their headquarters and barracks or were unable to flee in time.

Pentagon: Iraq could flood Tigris for defense Tactic was used to slow Iranian forces during Iran-Iraq War Friday, March 21, 2003 Posted: 4:24 AM EST (0924 GMT) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Story Tools -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- U.S. military planners are devising strategies in case the Iraqi military causes the Tigris River to flood, the Pentagon said Friday. If the Iraqi military were to release water into the Tigris from upstream reservoirs, extensive flooding could occur between Baghdad and Kut, to the south, the Pentagon said. Thousands of Iraqis could be displaced, adding to congestion on roads and requiring extensive humanitarian support. The Pentagon said Iraq used flooding to deter Iranian advances during the Iran-Iraq War. 
"Iraq's strategy could include releasing a small amount of water from major dams and canals to interrupt maneuvering units," said a U.S. statement released early Friday. "Iraq also could cause catastrophic flooding of portions of the Tigris and Euphrates river valleys, either by releasing large amounts of water from dams or by destroying them." Although the latter could cause "major humanitarian crises in parts of Iraq, Baghdad would experience minimal damage," the statement said. Parts of southern Iraq routinely flood in March and April because of heavy rainfall and snow melting in the north. Some areas that are already under water could be impassable for four to six weeks, even without additional flooding, the Pentagon said. "The [Saddam] Hussein regime could incorporate the flooding into defensive preparations to slow the advance of coalition forces," the Pentagon said. "This tactic could force coalition units or displaced persons through flooded areas." Primary water sources for such "strategic flooding" are the Qadisiyah Dam and its Hadiyha Reservoir, the Pentagon said. Additionally, the release of water from five reservoirs -- Saddam, Dokan, Al Azim, Darbandikhan and Diyala -- could increase the flow rate of the Tigris. The rainy season is already expected to raise water levels in these dams, the Pentagon said. 




A FEW DOZEN tents went up on Thursday morning in a camp near here, some 35 miles from the border with Iraq. Non-Iraqis fleeing from Iraq will be sheltered here, and already Thursday several dozen Sudanese workers and their families were huddling in the tents, which were being whipped by winds of 30 to 35 mph. The border area has been swept by sandstorms for the past three days. A second camp, for Iraqis, was being constructed a few miles away. Reporters visiting the border area Thursday morning found it was open, but the Jordanian military quickly ordered journalists to move away, saying a six-mile zone around the border was closed to the press. U.S. missiles hit buildings in Baghdad Iraq says civilian buildings hit, civilian killed U.S.-led forces launch ground assault Iraqi oil wells on fire White House urges Saddam to go into exile Downed U.S. helicopter returns to air U.S. sources: "Shock and awe" assault yet to come That zone includes a Jordanian military base that has been extensively renovated by the United States in recent weeks. An estimated 300 to 400 U.S. troops are at the base, officially to engage in search-and-rescue missions for downed allied pilots. • In the battle zone • Iraq interactive library • Targets in Iraq • Target Baghdad • Urban warfare • Allied deployments • The 1991 oil fires • Tools of warfare • Scuds and Arrows • World Reax • NBC: Video reports from the field • Complete coverage: Conflict with Iraq Read more dispatches from NBC News correspondents But most people here assume that the group also includes U.S. special operations forces moving into Western Iraq to search for Scud missiles, like those that were fired from this area in 1991 against Israel. ROAD FROM BAGHDAD BOMBED Some of the people who made the five-hour trip from Baghdad to Jordan Thursday said they saw evidence that the road and a fuel depot about 100 miles west of Baghdad had been bombed. Passengers on a bus said they had to drive around craters in the pavement. And several people reported seeing bodies at the fuel depot, including that of a Jordanian truck driver. Although the station is used by civilians, it could also be used by Iraqi forces moving west from Baghdad into the desert. Officials of the Red Crescent said the two refugee camps they are constructing should be adequate for 30,000 to 50,000 people, and could with difficulty handle as many as 100,000. But if the refugee population is much larger, as it was during the 1991 war, they say they would be overwhelmed. 

Refugees will be given a blanket, a mattress, medicine and a box lunch, but it will be several days before a kitchen can be set up. Wells were drilled for water, but it was too salty, so desalination gear was brought in. Authorities say a ticket office will be set up for non-Iraqi refugees, so as many as possible can purchase transportation back to their home countries. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Leaders worried and lamented, protesters condemned and demonstrated, friends of the United States proclaimed that it was ugly but sadly necessary. There was just one key difference Thursday: This time, military action in Iraq wasn’t just a possibility. It was becoming real. Muslim leaders in Asia condemned the U.S. attack and said Americans would pay. A response from the 30-million-strong moderate Muhammadiyah Muslim group in Indonesia came within minutes of the United States and Britain launching attacks on Iraq. “This is not an attack on Islam but an attack on humanity,” said Syafii Maarif, head of the organization. Latest on the military moves Deputy Malaysian Defense Minister Shafie Apdal told Reuters in Parliament that he feared reprisals by Iraqi sympathizers in other countries. Murid Timasaen, spokesman for Thailand’s Muslims for Peace Group, said Americans would never live in peace again. “They have attracted more enemies than ever, not only from the Muslim world, but also from the Buddhist community,” he said. “Countries like Iraq don’t have the capacity to fight the Americans in a conventional war, so more terrorist means will be deployed against the Americans.” JAPAN, PHILIPPINES BACK ATTACK Two Asian countries that have been supportive of the U.S. tough position on Iraq stepped in to reiterate their support. Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo said Manila was giving political and moral support for actions to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction. “The Philippines is part of the coalition of the willing” Arroyo said in a speech to graduates of the Philippine Military Academy. “We are giving political and moral support for actions to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction.” • Complete MSNBC coverage • Latest military developments • Kurds fleeing, again • Q &A with Peter Arnett • Top defector disappears • Video coverage from NBC • Blog: Army family's journal • Encarta: Detailed Iraq map • WashPost: Special coverage Latest from Newsweek • Zakaria: Arrogant empire • Waiting with the troops Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, putting a security alliance with the United States ahead of public opinion, reiterated his moral support for Washington on Thursday after the start of a U.S.-led attack on Iraq. “At this time... I understand, and I support the start of the use of force by the United States,” Koizumi told a news conference about an hour after Bush announced the start of the attack. Japanese troops, however, will not be fighting alongside U.S. forces. Japan’s postwar, pacifist constitution renounces war as a means of settling international disputes. • Daily updates on Iraq action Thailand said it wanted no part in the war. “But we are ready to help rehabilitate (Iraq) after the fighting, up to the extent of our resources,” Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said. “At this stage, we hope the war casualties will be confined only to military targets and not on civilians.” China said the action against Iraq was “violating the norms of international behavior.” Germany expressed “great concern and consternation” that its anti-war diplomacy with France and Russia had failed; it immediately turned attention to the aftermath — and offered help dealing with the humanitarian consequences. “Soon the United States will have to reap the fruits of what they are doing now, and the fruits won’t be sweet,” Russian legislator Vladimir Lukin, a former ambassador to Washington, told Russia’s state-controlled ORT television. • Deployments 
CONDEMNATION FROM IRAN Iran, Iraq’s neighbor and longtime enemy, issued immediate condemnation, calling the U.S. action “unjustifiable and illegitimate.” Neutral Finland weighed in, too, with President Tarja Halonen calling military force outside the U.N. Security Council “not acceptable.” “The ongoing war must not result in the marginalization of the United Nations,” she said. The United States and close ally Britain on Monday gave up trying to win the backing of the U.N. Security Council for a new resolution authorizing the use of force against Iraq, arguing that they already were within their rights to launch an invasion. In November, the Security Council had voted unanimously for a tough resolution that called on Iraq to disarm or face “serious consequences.” Several months of weapons inspections, however, were inconclusive, and key members of the council stood resolutely opposed to military action.

Bush's Deadline Passes Unheeded in Iraq 31 minutes ago By DAVID ESPO, AP Special Correspondent President Bush (news - web sites)'s deadline for Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) to surrender power passed unheeded Wednesday night, and war against Iraq (news - web sites) appeared inevitable. An American-led invasion force of 300,000 troops awaited the order to strike. AP Photo AP Photo Slideshow: Iraq and Saddam Hussein Baghdad Residents Brace for Impending War (AP Video) Latest news: · France, Others: Attack on Iraq Illegal AP - 18 minutes ago · Baghdad Streets Empty As Deadline Passes AP - 43 minutes ago · Air Force: U.S. Assault Will Stun Iraqis AP - 2 hours, 37 minutes ago Special Coverage U.S. and British forces massed in the Kuwaiti desert close to the Iraqi border, giant B-52 warplanes were loaded with bombs and Tomahawk missile-carrying ships were in position, all awaiting an attack order from Bush. The deadline came at 8 p.m. EST, which was 4 a.m. Thursday in Baghdad, its population shrunken in recent days by an exodus of thousands of fearful residents. "The disarmament of the Iraqi regime will begin at a time of the president's choosing," said his press secretary, Ari Fleischer (news - web sites), moments after 8 p.m. "The American people are ready for the disarmament of Saddam Hussein. They understand what's at stake. The military is ready, the nation is ready and the cause is just." Just after the deadline, White House chief of staff Andrew Card informed the president that intelligence officials had no information that Saddam had left Iraq. Saddam's regime gave every appearance of digging in. In the minutes after the deadline, Iraqi TV showed footage of a pro-Saddam march Tuesday in Baghdad, with members of the crowd chanting pro-Saddam slogans, some brandishing rifles and carrying pictures of Saddam. "We are dedicated to martyrdom in defense of Iraq under your leadership," a loyal Iraqi parliament assured the Iraqi dictator, and armed members of the ruling Baath party deployed behind hundreds of sandbagged defensive positions in Baghdad. Even so, 17 Iraqi soldiers surrendered to American GIs during the day, eager to give up before the shooting started. Bush met periodically throughout the day with his top aides at the White House and sent formal notice to Congress that reliance on "further diplomatic and other peaceful means alone" would not suffice to counter "the continuing threat posed by Iraq." Fleischer, said the nation "ought to be prepared for the loss" of American lives once the military effort begins to depose Saddam and recover weapons of mass destruction. Aides said the commander in chief would decide on timing based on the advice of his military commanders. More than 25 protesters were arrested outside the White House, part of a larger group of demonstrators that chanted, banged drums and carried signs that read, "Stop the War on Iraq." It seemed unlikely in the extreme. Along with the U.S.-led force approaching 300,000 troops massed in the Persian Gulf region were 1,000 combat aircraft and five aircraft carrier battle groups. The United States claims the public and private support of 45 other nations in a coalition to topple Saddam. But only Britain, with about 40,000 troops, was making a sizable contribution to the military force. In a run-up to war, U.S. aircraft also dropped nearly 2 million leaflets over southern Iraq with a variety of messages, including, for the first time, instructions to Iraqi troops on how to capitulate to avoid being killed. Hundreds of miles away, at an air base in England, crews loaded bombs aboard giant B-52 combat aircraft. Apart from the desire to capture weapons of mass destruction, Bush's submission to Congress said a military attack could lead to the discovery of information that would allow the apprehension of terrorists living in the United States. An attack, it said, "is a vital part of the international war on terrorism." Despite deep divisions at the United Nations (news - web sites), Bush also claimed "the authority — indeed, given the dangers involved, the duty — to use force against Iraq to protect the security of the American people and to compel compliance with United Nations resolutions." The diplomatic wheels turned still at the United Nations where foreign ministers were meeting in the Security Council at the request of the French and Germans, prominent critics of the American military operation. "This is a sad day for the United Nations," said the organization's secretary general, Kofi Annan (news - web sites) said. "I know that millions of people around the world share this sense of disappointment and are deeply alarmed." Bush abandoned diplomacy on Monday, and administration officials blamed French intransigence for the lack of consensus on a new Security Council resolution that would have given Saddam an ultimatum. The signs of imminent conflict were abundant. Israel ordered its citizens to start carrying their gas masks to work and to school. And hundreds of Israeli residents fled Tel Aviv, fearful that Iraq would launch missiles against their seaside city, as happened in the 1991 Persian Gulf War (news - web sites). Royal Jordanian — the only commercial airline with regularly scheduled flights to Baghdad — said it was canceling them in anticipation of war. And Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak (news - web sites) offered a dual-edged analysis. He blamed Iraq for the approaching military conflict. But he also said he hoped that "different international forces will realize the dangerous repercussions of any military action on the safety and stability of the Middle East region." Another country in the region, Bahrain, publicly offered exile to Saddam "in a dignified manner that should not be seen as undermining Iraq's position and capabilities." "It's the last-hour chance and we hope that Iraq will accept this offer to avoid war," Information Minister Nabil al-Hamer told The Associated Press. Exile for the Iraqi leader "is absolutely unthinkable," said Saadoon Hammadi, speaker of Iraq's parliament. "He will be in front of everyone. He will fight and guide our country to victory." 'Defining moment' dawns on America By Rick Hampson USA TODAY On a day when Americans should have been waiting for spring, they waited for war. As President Bush's deadline for Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein ticked closer, Tuesday rituals -- weekly play dates and poker games, Bible study and baseball practice -- went on. Meanwhile, a page in history was about to turn. Eddie Hannigan, 73, spent the morning attaching American flags to the white wooden fence lining his driveway off a country road in Fallbrook, Calif. His wife was out buying yellow ribbons to tie to the flagpole. ''Woke up this morning and the wife said, 'I think we should put out the flag,' '' said Hannigan, who fought in the 1950-53 Korean War. ''It's a private driveway. No one can stop me. But the neighbors all thought it was a good idea. I don't like war, but I support our troops.'' People were reminded of the lull after another presidential ultimatum on Iraq a dozen years ago. But this time they knew, through painful experience, that war isn't something that always happens somewhere else. ''This seems more real than the first Gulf War,'' said Mary Clark, 52, a New York state employee who was passing Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan. ''It was like watching a movie. It's still just as far away, but now we have threats on our own soil. It feels like part of the battlefield, for this war is going to be here at home.'' On the other side of the continent, a man fishing in the choppy Pacific off Oceanside, Calif., agreed. ''I feel absolutely certain that we will suffer destruction from terrorist attacks,'' said Les Hite, 61, an avocado grower. ''I hope we don't look back on this day and say that's when we could have done things differently.'' To many, the country seemed to have set off on a road with no turning back. Mike Lance, 24, a New York marketing assistant, called it ''a defining moment.'' Some embraced it. Parents and teachers from the Heights Christian School in Los Angeles said they gave no thought to canceling a school trip to Washington, D.C. ''It's great,'' said Carolyn Litchfield, as she toured the Capitol. ''We're here in the middle of history.'' After months of waiting, some people said battle would come as a relief. ''Let's just get this war over with already,'' Clark said. ''I'm so frustrated about how we keep hanging on edge about this.'' In Marion, Ind., Nanette Weesner tied the 32nd yellow ribbon -- one for every day her son has been stationed with the Army in the Persian Gulf -- on the staircase in her apartment. She said she hopes that whatever happens, ''it'll happen fast, and the troops come home.'' In Hinesville, Ga., location of Fort Stewart, one resident said the civilians in town are almost eager for war. ''They want to get it on and get it over with,'' said Marion Adams, 56, ''because it's messing up their business.'' Bob Dickinson, president of Carnival Cruise Lines, said Bush's speech actually helped travelers make plans. ''It's been a kind of limbo we've been in the last couple months. Now people who have delayed making travel plans can get back to normal,'' Dickinson said. Meanwhile, Americans stocked up on emergency supplies, lit votive candles and gave blood. A few took to the streets on Tuesday in protest and in support of attacking Iraq -- mothers of soldiers wearing yellow ribbons and mothers against war wearing pink ones. To some, it felt like a rerun of 1991: the international antagonists, the internal divisions, the economic worries, the concern about terrorism, the signs saying ''No Blood for Oil.'' But there were differences. This time, fast-food deliveries already have been banned at the New York Stock Exchange. The airport metal detectors already have been fine-tuned. Office workers already are wearing their ID badges. This time, Mr. Rogers will not be around to record messages to reassure children. Some voices from around the nation: * A truck stop in Racine, Wis. Rich Reis, 44, a trucker from Hanover Park, Ill., said he has had doubts for weeks about the war. He's a Navy veteran with two sons who also served in the military. Reis' son-in-law is on a Navy vessel with 600 Marines in the Gulf. He has been there for months and has never seen his second son, who was born in December. Reis still isn't sure Iraq poses any serious threat beyond the missiles it has destroyed. He hasn't seen what he calls ''hard-core'' proof. ''Give me something to grab a hold of if you are going to put my sons' lives on the line,'' he said. But Reis also thinks it's too late too argue: ''We can't wait any more. My feeling, if we go to war -- when we go to war --is win it. Win. Don't play. Win.'' * A coffee house in Denver A storm that dumped about 3 feet of snow made the war the No. 2 news story on Denver TV. ''It's all about the snow,'' said Reb Ryan, manager and co-owner of Buzz Fill 'Er Up Cafe. ''People here right now are focused on getting through this storm.'' She closed her business at mid-morning for lack of business. Those who did drop in talked about war. ''Sixty percent are saying, 'This is crazy. I can't believe we're doing this,' '' Ryan said. ''But I have quite a few cops who come through, and they're all gung-ho for it.'' In the days before the storm, she noticed a drop-off in sales of lattes, cappuccinos and espressos. ''I think people are not looking for luxuries,'' she said. By the time the president went on TV, ''people were all on edge. They didn't want to hang out here. They wanted to go somewhere so they could watch the news.'' * A terminal at LAX The tension was palpable in the Delta Air Lines baggage claim area at Los Angeles International Airport. ''Now that it's here, I fear that the end of the world is here,'' said Joanne Drake, 68, who was arriving home from a trip to Orlando with her daughter and grandchildren. ''We're all going to be in danger from biological and chemical weapons. I'm very fearful, but I don't think we have any other choice. We can't let Saddam keep going and going.'' ''I'm afraid of everything,'' said Mandy Park, 30, a health care worker visiting from Canada with her gray tomcat. But if Saddam is ''feeding into terrorism,'' she said, ''he has to be taken care of.'' * An anti-war group in St. Louis For Woody Powell, 70, it was a day to mourn for peace and prepare for war. The executive director of Veterans for Peace fielded phone calls and e-mails while helping to organize a demonstration in Washington on Saturday. When the war begins, he said, he'll head to a military recruiting station in St. Louis to try to talk young people out of signing up. Powell said he had enlisted in the Air Force during the Korean War, ''full of patriotic fervor and the urge to prove myself as a man, and full of all the fears of inadequacy.'' ''The experience of war is not a natural one for human beings, and it does unnatural things to their psyches,'' he said. ''There are other ways to prove yourself as a human being.'' 

* A sidewalk near Ground Zero There was optimism. ''It will not be bloody,'' predicted Stephanie Baker, 36, a customer service manager from Boston. And there was pessimism. ''Gas prices will go up. Stock prices will go down,'' said Allison Vanderbrul, 21, an undergraduate at the State University of New York-New Paltz. ''People will be afraid to invest. International relations with the U.S. will get worse. International investors won't invest. It's not going to bounce back quickly.'' Alex Woods, 21, a University of Arizona undergraduate from Tucson, said it was all beyond him. ''Basically, I don't really know what's going on,'' he said. ''I hope our leaders know more than we do. I'm hoping they are making the right decisions.'' 




U.S. Copter Shot Down in Iraq; Crew Safe 1 hour, 19 minutes ago By SARAH EL DEEB, Associated Press Writer FALLUJAH, Iraq - An Army Apache attack helicopter was shot down Tuesday, the third downed in less than two weeks, though the crew escaped unharmed. U.S. troops reacting to attacks opened fire and killed four civilians, including a woman and a young boy, in separate incidents, witnesses said. AP Photo AP Photo Slideshow: Iraq Iraqi Rally in Fallujah Over Woman's Arrest (AP Video) Latest headlines: · In Shift, Bush Says Canada May Bid on Iraq Work Reuters - 7 minutes ago · U.S. Copter Shot Down in Iraq; Crew Safe AP - 13 minutes ago · Gephardt Says Dean Less Viable Candidate AP - 13 minutes ago Special Coverage In the volatile town of Fallujah, north of the capital, hundreds of Iraqis protested in the streets, shouting "Bush, you coward!" after U.S. troops detained a young woman while searching for a Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) loyalist. The woman, who relatives acknowledged was handled only by female soldiers, was released after several hours questioning. The American AH-64 helicopter gunship was shot down near the town of Habbaniyah, in a western region near where a medevac helicopter was downed Tuesday, killing all nine soldiers on board. A Kiowa Warrior helicopter was shot down in the area on Jan. 2, killing the pilot. The AH-64's two-person crew was unhurt, and the U.S. military secured the area, military spokesman Col. William Darley said. "It was apparently downed by enemy fire," he said. Habbaniyah is 12 miles from Fallujah, in the so-called "Sunni Triangle," north and west of the capital, a region that has been the center of guerrilla attacks on American forces. Two incidents in Fallujah and Baghdad were the latest in a growing number of cases of civilians being shot by U.S. soldiers. After the morning protests subsided in Fallujah, U.S. troops positioned at city hall were attacked by rocket-propelled grenades. The troops opened fire, killing two people and injuring four, witnesses, police and hospital staff said. They identified the dead as Sahar Adnan, a 33-year-old woman shot inside the home of her sister, and Ahmed Naji, 37, who was driving a car. His brother and father were seriously injured, police Capt. Taha al-Falahi said. In Baghdad the day before, a roadside bomb went off near a U.S. checkpoint, hitting a U.S. Humvee and killing a soldier. Soliders in another Humvee started shooting, hitting a car carrying civilians, said Wijdan Abdel Wahab, a relative of the car's passengers. Abdel Wahab's 10-year-old nephew, Mustafa Jamal Shaikhly, and the family driver, identified only as Haider, were killed, she said. The boy's 30-year-old mother and another aunt were seriously wounded, and his younger sister and brother suffered minor cuts, Abdel Wahab. "The Americans have ruined an innocent family, children and women," Abdel Wahab said, distraught and weeping at the hospital. "They didn't even bother to look back at them after shooting them." She said the family is fed up with the situation and wants to "leave Iraq (news - web sites) because of the Americans and the (U.S.-installed) Governing Council." The U.S. military did not confirm any of the civilian casualties. The soldier who died in the bomb blast was the 495th American killed in Iraq. The military is investigating another apparent shooting of civilians by Americans — four Iraqi civilians, including a 7-year-old boy, killed in a taxi near Tikrit on Jan. 3. Local commander Lt. Col. Steve Russell said Tuesday it was "likely" they were shot by coalition forces. The detention of a 17-year-old woman sparked outrage in Fallujah, a stridently anti-American city. Fallujah residents, like many in the Sunni Triangle, are religiously conservative and equate a woman's dignity with family honor. Hundreds of people poured into the streets of Fallujah on Monday night after hearing the news and continued demonstrating Tuesday, shouting "Bush, you coward!" and "Release our woman!" They dispersed without incident by noon. Relatives said the woman, who was married six days ago, was alone at home Monday when she was taken away by U.S. troops and kept in custody for five hours before being freed unharmed. Maher Turki, the brother of the woman's husband, said the soldiers were looking for another of his brothers in the hope he would lead them to Khamis Sarhan, the leader of Saddam Hussein's Baath party in Fallujah. Sarhan is wanted by occupation forces and has a $1 million bounty on his head. Turki said his brother, who has fled, was acquainted with Sarhan but was not an associate. Turki said the troops were not looking for the detained woman's husband. "The girl was alone so they took her because they know our weakness. When they take our honor they know we will come to them," Turki told The Associated Press. He refused to identify his sister-in-law, saying she was hospitalized with her husband, recovering from the shock of custody. "But in all honesty, she was treated well. They only had women soldiers deal with her. They did not harm her. They didn't touch one hair on her head," he said. While anti-U.S. sentiments have been widespread in Sunni areas, the occupation authorities also face anger in southern Shiite towns over the hardships persisting nine months after Saddam's regime collapsed. Shiites are a majority in Iraq but were long suppressed by Saddam. Clashes resumed Tuesday in Kut between protesters and Ukrainian troops, with sporadic gunfire heard at the western edge of the city, a day after the Ukrainians fired bullets in the air to control a riot by hundreds of people demanding food and jobs. The demonstrators also hurled explosives on Monday, injuring one Ukrainian soldier and four Iraqi policemen, said Lt. Zafer Wedad, an Iraqi police official. The violence in Kut, 90 miles southeast of Baghdad, followed a similar demonstration in another southern city, Amarah, on Sunday. Unrest among the Shiites has grown as their spiritual leader, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Husseini al-Sistani, has spoken out against a U.S.-backed formula for transferring power to the Iraqis. But the top U.S. administrator in Iraq, L. Paul Bremer, said Monday the Nov. 15 pact is "the best way forward to return sovereignty to the Iraqi people." ___

Missiles -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 









Iraqi missile range: Under UN rules, Iraq is banned from having any missiles with a range greater than 93 miles (150 km). Controversy has arisen over the al-Samoud Two missile, which has travelled up to 112 miles (180 km) in tests. In response to requests by UN inspectors, Iraq has begun destroying some of its stock of 120 of these. Analysts also believe Iraq may have some banned missiles, although inspectors have not found any. These are believed to include a small number of 400-mile (644 km) range al-Hussein missiles, which would be capable of striking Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran and Kuwait. Iraq is also thought by some analysts to have 15 to 80 Scud B missiles with a range of 185 miles. Neither of these is very effective at dispersing chemical or biological weapons, according to the International Institute for Strategic Studies. The 560-mile (902 km) range al-Abbas missile was developed more than 10 years ago from earlier Scud types, but it is not clear whether it reached operational status. Iraq does not have the facilities to build long-range missiles and would require several years and foreign assistance to do this. 


My teacher is called Jessie...she displayed herself for Carnival!...Look at Mas! Top Stories - Reuters U.S. Bombards Iraqi Units with Calls to Surrender Tue Mar 18,12:03 PM ET Add Top Stories - Reuters to My Yahoo! By Charles Aldinger WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military is bombarding military units in the south of Iraq (news - web sites) with leaflets, broadcasts and e-mails urging them to surrender rather than oppose a looming invasion, U.S. officials said on Tuesday. Reuters Photo AP Photo Slideshow: U.S. Military Build-Up U.S. Infantry Shows Off Powerful Tanks in Kuwait (AP Video) U.S. Military Hardware Unloads in Turkey (AP Video) Latest news: · U.S. Commanders Rechecking War Plans AP - 16 minutes ago · U.S. Faces Unknowns if It Heads to War AP - 1 hour, 32 minutes ago · Relations Among U.S. Religions at a Low AP - 1 hour, 51 minutes ago Special Coverage Speaking after President Bush (news - web sites) gave Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) a 48-hour deadline to leave or face war, the officials told Reuters there had been "scattered" signs of some success in the surrender initiative, but declined to give specifics. The U.S. Central Command said from its Gulf military headquarters in Qatar that 1.4 million leaflets were dumped on Iraq on Monday in the biggest drop to date in a months-long psychological warfare campaign of broadcasts and air drops. The intention, officials in Washington said, was in large measure to persuade Iraqi forces in the south to stand aside when U.S.-led forces sweep north from Kuwait toward the oil fields around the southern oil center of Basra en route to the capital of Baghdad. "Indications are very scattered, but I would say positive," said one official who asked not to be identified. Defense officials have said instructions being given to Iraqi forces were very specific, including telling them to leave their tanks with their turrets reversed and to abandon vehicles in the open while returning to barracks. The officials refused to detail the Iraqi responses but noted cautiously that Saddam's elite and hard-line Republican Guards units were stationed further north near Baghdad. AWAITING INVASION ORDER Of the 280,000 U.S. and British troops arrayed in the Gulf against Iraq, 175,000 are in Kuwait awaiting orders from Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites) to launch a massive air and ground invasion to remove Saddam and destroy alleged stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons. U.S. defense officials and private analysts say one of the first objectives of an invasion would be to overwhelm regular army units and take Basra only about 40 miles from the Kuwait border as tens of thousands of U.S. and British forces sweep northward. Basra is 340 miles southeast of Baghdad. At Camp As Sayliyah in Qatar, battle headquarters of the Central Command, a crewman from a U.S. C-130 Special Operations aircraft broadcasting messages into Iraq said the programs use music to capture attention of Iraqi listeners, then follow with information slamming Saddam and touting the nobility of the Western cause, all leading to a main point -- do not fight the invaders. "We call ourselves the weapons of mass persuasion," the crewman, identified only as Lt. Col. Mike, told reporters. 

But in Washington, U.S. defense officials also told Reuters there had been growing signs that Iraq was preparing to use chemical and biological weapons against invading troops and to destroy its own oil fields. "Some trenches dug in the south could be quickly filled with oil and set afire to delay any advance," said one U.S. official. "They might just blast rigs and blame it on us." At the Pentagon (news - web sites), one official confirmed a Washington Post report from Kuwait that the U.S. military was trying to negotiate "capitulation agreements" with Iraqi commanders under which enemy troops would turn over most of their weapons and return to their barracks rather than be taken prisoners of war. The advantage of such a move, which would allow Iraqi commanders to keep their sidearms, would be to alleviate the advancing American and British forces or the burden of keeping tens of thousands of prisoners while speeding northward.

Eighteen Iraqi border guards surrender to US army in Kuwait: military source Wed Mar 19, 2:24 PM ET IN THE NORTHERN KUWAITI DESERT (AFP) - Eighteen Iraqi border guards crossed the border into Kuwait and surrendered to US troops, a military source in the emirate told AFP. AFP Photo A US officer here had earlier said 15 Iraqi soldiers had surrendered, while the state KUNA news agency, quoting a Kuwaiti military source, put the number at 16. The military source who spoke to AFP on condition of anonymity said the 18 had crossed the border in two batches -- the first comprising two border guards and the second 16. 
The US officer earlier said the 15 Iraqis who turned themselves in to US troops had been handed over to Kuwaiti police. They were handed over after laying down their arms and giving up, said Captain Darrin Theriault, headquarters company commander of the First Brigade of the US Army's Third Infantry Division. The surrenders, at about 1500 GMT, came as a 48-hour ultimatum given by President George W. Bush (news - web sites) to Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) to leave his country by early Thursday or face a massive attack was running out. "We anticipate more (surrenders) as this continues to develop," Theriault told AFP. He stressed that the Kuwaiti police had custody of the Iraqi soldiers and "no enemy prisoners of war are under US control." The United States and Britain have some 280,000 troops mustered in the region readying an invasion of Iraq (news - web sites) after Saddam rejected Bush's warning to quit the country. About 174,000 are in Kuwait. 

US warplanes launch strikes at seven locations in southern Iraq Wed Mar 19, 5:29 PM ET WASHINGTON (AFP) - The United States and Britain conducted wide-ranging air strikes in southern and western Iraq (news - web sites), bombing long-range artillery and a surface-to-surface missile system that threatened coalition forces poised to invade the country from Kuwait, officials said. AFP Photo The warplanes struck at least seven locations over a 10 hour period as the clock ran on a US deadline for Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) and his two sons to leave the country or face war. US and British officials said the strikes were within the scope of normal enforcement of a no-fly zone over southern Iraq, and the US Central Command said they were launched in response to Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery fire. But the strikes targeted 10 artillery systems that had been moved last week into range of US and British forces massing in Kuwait for a ground offensive as well as a surface-to-surface missile system, a US defense official said. The Central Command said long range artillery were struck at Az Zubayr and in the Al Faw peninsula, and a surface-to surface missile system near Basra. Warplanes also bombed a traffic control radar near Basra and communications sites near Ash Shuaybah, Mydaysis and Ruwayshid in southern Iraq. "The artillery was struck because they were a danger to coalition ground troops in Kuwait," the command said. "The air traffic control radar was used to direct Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery fire at coalition aircraft." In western Iraq, they targeted a radar and an air defense command center near the H-3 airfield that defends the approaches to Baghdad from Jordan, the command said. "The coalition executed today's strikes after Iraqi forces fired anti-aircraft artillery at coalition aircraft patrolling the southern no-fly zone south of the 33rd parallel in Iraq," the command said. In London, a spokeswoman for the British Defence Ministry said, "We are flying over southern Iraq. This evening we are targeting systems which are a threat to our forces." "We have been doing this for the last 10 years. It's the same as we've been doing, but obviously the time is perhaps more relevant," the official said.

Though they talk by phone every day, Blair said he wanted face time with Bush to discuss how to rebuild a post-Saddam Iraq, and to explore ways of rebuilding US-Europe relations left in tatters in the run-up to war. "I am clear that the United Nations (news - web sites) must be centrally involved" not just in humanitarian relief as the war rages, but in rebuilding Iraq after the guns fall silent, he told a Downing Street press conference. Blair said he leave Wednesday after his mid-day question period in the House of Commons for Washington, from where he would immediately go to Bush's retreat at Camp David, Maryland for talks Wednesday night and Thursday. Later Thursday, he said, he would go to New York to see Annan, before flying back to London. "I will see president Bush at Camp David to discuss not just the military campaign but also the diplomatic implications of recent events for the future -- in particular how we get America and Europe working again together as partners and not as rivals," Blair said. The snap war summit would also "assess the best way of dealing with the humanitarian crisis in Iraq... how we rebuild Iraq post-Saddam, and also, of course, our approach to the Middle East peace process." Blair has been Bush's staunchest ally in the showdown with Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) over weapons of mass destruction, sending 45,000 soldiers, sailors and airmen, 120 tanks, a naval task force and 100-plus warplanes to join the US-led war. Opposition among Britons to war clearly appeared to be waning on day six of the fighting, with a poll in the Guardian newspaper Tuesday suggesting that 54 percent approved of a military attack to oust Saddam. On February 14, the figure had been 52 percent against. Britain suffered its second known combat fatality Monday when a member of Scotland's famed Black Watch regiment was killed in fighting near al-Zubayr, southwest of Basra. The first British soldier to die, a member of the Royal Tank Regiment, was killed in the same area Sunday, and two remain listed as missing. Fourteen other Britons died in two helicopter accidents, and two airmen perished when their Tornado bomber was hit by a US missile. Coalition commanders say Iraqi "irregulars" loyal to Saddam have been resisting British forces around Basra, but Blair insisted Tuesday that, overall, the invasion is going to plan. "It's precisely what you'd expect... These people are going to fight," he said, adding: "We have the forces that we need to do the job." In his first press conference since Bush launched the war Thursday with a volley of air strikes, Blair pledged that, unlike in the 1991 war to free Kuwait, the US-led coalition would not let the Iraqi people down. "My message to them is that this time we will not let you down. Saddam and his regime will be removed. Iraq will have a better future," the prime minsiter said. Warning the British people that the war is far from over, Blair said US, British and other forces would face "resistance all the way to the end of this campaign." "It will take time and perseverance and the continuing skill and dedication and professionalism of our armed forces to break it down," he said. Last Updated: Tuesday, 25 March, 2003, 17:54 GMT Email this to a friend Printable version Blair promises to back Iraqi people Tony Blair to meet George Bush Tony Blair has promised the Iraqi people that US-led coalition forces "will not let you down" as UK troops began firing in support of an apparent uprising in Basra. At his monthly news conference ahead of the assault on troop positions in the southern Iraqi city, Mr Blair said the military campaign had already achieved a "huge amount". He pledged: "Saddam Hussein and his regime will be removed. Iraq will have a better future ahead of it." Mr Blair said the Iraqi people were wary of rising up against Saddam Hussein's regime after the failure to remove the dictator following the Gulf War in 1991. He was speaking after fierce resistance from paramilitaries in Basra claimed a second British soldier's life. And coalition forces continued to advance on Baghdad - although delayed by fierce sandstorms - where they were expecting to meet extremely strong military opposition. Mr Blair also confirmed that he will fly to meet US President George Bush on Wednesday. The prime minister's spokesman said the discussions would centre on Iraq post-Saddam rather than on military strategy which had already been decided. Mr Blair is also due to hold talks with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on Thursday. LATEST FROM NEWSWEEK • Special war section • Q&A on smart weapons Who Will Try Iraqi War Criminals? By Ed Finn Posted Wednesday, March 19, 2003, at 3:19 PM PT 
In his speech to the nation Monday, President Bush promised that Iraqi war criminals would be tried and punished—but he didn't specify which criminals or in which court they would be tried. Which Iraqis will be tried, and who will judge them? The answers depend largely on the outcome of the war, once it's clear who's still alive to stand trial. Most experts agree that war-crimes trials will be limited to indictments against a small fraction of the thousands of likely suspects, since wiping out Iraq's government infrastructure (on top of its economic and military infrastructure) will make it that much harder to build a new state. In fact, the U.S. government has kept its official list of Iraqi war criminals extremely short, even though hundreds of officials have been implicated in the use of chemical weapons against Iraqi Kurds in 1988. It's likely that only the top echelons of the military will be tried—perhaps 50 people, perhaps more, depending on who you ask and whether or not local commanders fight. (If they surrender, they might escape prosecution.) For the invading Americans, "who" is tried is almost less important than "how," because these trials give the United States a much-needed chance to exhibit fairness and restraint after initiating a war. Possible trial venues include: International Criminal Court: This one can probably be ruled out—neither the U.S. nor Iraq ever agreed to it. Ironically, it might be legally possible to try British or Australian troops in the ICC for war crimes if they commit any atrocities, since their nations are signatories. U.N. ad hoc tribunal: This is a special international court that has to be mandated by the Security Council—recent examples include courts created to try war criminals from the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. Considering the intense misgivings fellow Security Council members like France and Russia have about the war, it is unlikely that the United States will ask them to create a tribunal. And even if they did, there's another snag if the blue helmets show up—no U.N. court can sentence a war criminal to death. U.S. federal courts: Under the War Crimes Act of 1996, war crimes by or against U.S. citizens can be prosecuted in American federal courts. This option also seems unlikely, however, because many of the crimes likely to be prosecuted involve Iraqi officials assaulting their own citizens. Local Iraqi courts: These might do for small-fry Baath loyalists. After all, the United States will be trying to create a respectable criminal justice system in Iraq, and war criminals would provide useful fodder to get things rolling. But it's unlikely that any of the regime's kingpins would face a local court, since there would be too many opportunities for political skullduggery and old allegiances to taint the process. Hybrid courts: All the rage since their success in Sierra Leone, hybrid courts bring together a combination of local and international jurists. The idea is to mix the grass-roots appeal of civil courts with the respectability and fence-mending powers of international courts. This option also allows the United States to involve European jurists without having to go through the United Nations. The flexibility of a hybrid court will be attractive to post-Iraq planners not because of its appeal to international justice but because it will allow the United States to better trade amnesty for information while still satisfying world opinion. Say the United States invades Iraq and raids all the bunkers and palaces but doesn't find weapons of mass destruction or Saddam Hussein. In that case, the post-war administration's first priority will be to pump Iraq's surviving officials for information—a process that could carry over to war crimes courts. If you're wondering what war crimes are, Explainer has covered this before. Next question?

“I kind of felt sorry for them,” said one U.S. military official, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. “A lot of them looked hungry. They haven’t been fed in a while.” He spoke after U.S. Marines and their allies took control of the strategic port city of Umm Qasr and with it, Iraq’s access to the Persian Gulf. The outclassed Iraqis fought with small arms, pistols, machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. Authorities said the nation’s southern oil fields would be secured by day’s end. At the same time, the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division surged 100 miles into Iraq. Much more was to come — an extraordinary land-based juggernaut of allied weaponry and troops was caught in an enormous traffic jam in Kuwait, ready to strike when it could cross the border. SOME RESISTANCE There were pockets of resistance, some of it stiff; a second combat death was reported Friday, a member of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force who was wounded while battling a platoon of Iraqi infantry. But often, the opponent advanced with a white flag in hand instead of a rifle. Within a few hours of crossing into southern Iraq, the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit encountered 200 or more Iraqi troops seeking to surrender. One group of 40 Iraqis marched down a two-lane road toward the Americans and gave up. Another group of Iraqi soldiers alongside a road waved a white flag and their raised hands, trying to flag down a group of journalists so they could surrender. Forty to 50 Iraqi soldiers surrendered to a Marine traffic control unit. They came down the road in the open back of a troop vehicle, their hands in the air for about a mile before they reached the Marines. Their decision to give up the fight was not unexpected, or unprompted; for months, Iraq has been bombarded with messages from the Americans, urging its soldiers to refuse to fight. • In the battle zone • Iraq interactive library • Targets in Iraq • Target Baghdad • Urban warfare • Allied deployments • The 1991 oil fires • Tools of warfare • Scuds and Arrows • World Reax • NBC: Video reports from the field • Complete coverage: Conflict with Iraq At a Pentagon news conference Friday, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld called on Iraq’s military to “do the honorable thing, stop fighting that you may live to enjoy a free Iraq, where you and your children can grow and prosper.” How many Iraqis had surrendered? No one knew for sure. Rumsfeld said he knew of a few hundred, and others who just quit fighting. “A lot of people just leave and melt into the countryside,” he said. In Baghdad, however, an Iraqi military spokesman denied there had been any large-scale surrender. “The 51st Army Division is still fighting the invading troops ferociously and courageously and inflicting upon the enemy forces the ugliest losses,” he said, reading a statement on Iraqi television Saturday. GROUND ADVANCE FASTER THAN PLANNED Rumsfeld said the allied forces were advancing and now controlled “a growing portion of the country of Iraq.” The captured territory included two airfields in western Iraq. The ground advance into Iraq appeared to be moving faster than planned. Units reached locations in Iraq 24 hours ahead of their expected arrival time, according to several reporters attached to those units. The Army’s 3rd Infantry Division was following a path through the desert west of the Euphrates River, avoiding populated areas. It appeared that strategists sought to minimize civilian and military casualties by flanking most Iraqi units and going straight for the Republican Guard around Baghdad. The bulk of the allied force hadn’t even entered Iraq yet. 'Target: Iraq' on MSNBC TV All day, all night coverage • MSNBC brings you live coverage of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Tom Brokaw and Lester Holt anchor, with reports from Peter Arnett in Baghdad. There was a huge traffic jam at the border - thousands of vehicles parked in parallel rows, nothing but columns of trucks, Humvees, oil tankers, flatbed tucks, armored vehicles and vehicles of every stripe, from horizon to horizon. The traffic was so bad that it took 6½ hours for one unit to go 51 miles, in swirling dust. Crossing the border Friday morning, the 3rd Battalion of the 7th Marine Infantry faced little resistance. Tanks attached to the battalion attacked five Iraqi tanks just north of the border, destroying them easily. TAKING SAFWAN The battalion passed the brown, stone rubble of several buildings it had shelled just minutes before — the air still held the acrid smell of explosives — and at least five enormous pictures of a smiling Saddam Hussein, some with him wearing a robe, others with him in a headscarf, that stood intact at the border post. They reached the town of Safwan, where speakers warned Iraqis to stay out of the Marines’ way. A few ventured outside: A man on the side of the road bearing a white flag. Another in a long, gray robe, prostrate on the ground, apparently in prayer. “I never thought I’d see this place,” said Cpl. Matt Nale, 31, of Seattle, Wash. He stuck his head out of the top of an Amtrack armored personnel carrier, looked around, smiled and repeatedly nodded with wonder. The Marines later took control of positions mostly abandoned by Iraq’s 32nd Mechanized Infantry Brigade, blowing up a few abandoned tanks and armored personnel carriers and engaging in short firefights with a few Iraqi soldiers who had stayed back to defend their headquarters and barracks or were unable to flee in time.

Pentagon: Iraq could flood Tigris for defense Tactic was used to slow Iranian forces during Iran-Iraq War Friday, March 21, 2003 Posted: 4:24 AM EST (0924 GMT) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Story Tools -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- U.S. military planners are devising strategies in case the Iraqi military causes the Tigris River to flood, the Pentagon said Friday. If the Iraqi military were to release water into the Tigris from upstream reservoirs, extensive flooding could occur between Baghdad and Kut, to the south, the Pentagon said. Thousands of Iraqis could be displaced, adding to congestion on roads and requiring extensive humanitarian support. The Pentagon said Iraq used flooding to deter Iranian advances during the Iran-Iraq War. 
"Iraq's strategy could include releasing a small amount of water from major dams and canals to interrupt maneuvering units," said a U.S. statement released early Friday. "Iraq also could cause catastrophic flooding of portions of the Tigris and Euphrates river valleys, either by releasing large amounts of water from dams or by destroying them." Although the latter could cause "major humanitarian crises in parts of Iraq, Baghdad would experience minimal damage," the statement said. Parts of southern Iraq routinely flood in March and April because of heavy rainfall and snow melting in the north. Some areas that are already under water could be impassable for four to six weeks, even without additional flooding, the Pentagon said. "The [Saddam] Hussein regime could incorporate the flooding into defensive preparations to slow the advance of coalition forces," the Pentagon said. "This tactic could force coalition units or displaced persons through flooded areas." Primary water sources for such "strategic flooding" are the Qadisiyah Dam and its Hadiyha Reservoir, the Pentagon said. Additionally, the release of water from five reservoirs -- Saddam, Dokan, Al Azim, Darbandikhan and Diyala -- could increase the flow rate of the Tigris. The rainy season is already expected to raise water levels in these dams, the Pentagon said. 




A FEW DOZEN tents went up on Thursday morning in a camp near here, some 35 miles from the border with Iraq. Non-Iraqis fleeing from Iraq will be sheltered here, and already Thursday several dozen Sudanese workers and their families were huddling in the tents, which were being whipped by winds of 30 to 35 mph. The border area has been swept by sandstorms for the past three days. A second camp, for Iraqis, was being constructed a few miles away. Reporters visiting the border area Thursday morning found it was open, but the Jordanian military quickly ordered journalists to move away, saying a six-mile zone around the border was closed to the press. U.S. missiles hit buildings in Baghdad Iraq says civilian buildings hit, civilian killed U.S.-led forces launch ground assault Iraqi oil wells on fire White House urges Saddam to go into exile Downed U.S. helicopter returns to air U.S. sources: "Shock and awe" assault yet to come That zone includes a Jordanian military base that has been extensively renovated by the United States in recent weeks. An estimated 300 to 400 U.S. troops are at the base, officially to engage in search-and-rescue missions for downed allied pilots. • In the battle zone • Iraq interactive library • Targets in Iraq • Target Baghdad • Urban warfare • Allied deployments • The 1991 oil fires • Tools of warfare • Scuds and Arrows • World Reax • NBC: Video reports from the field • Complete coverage: Conflict with Iraq Read more dispatches from NBC News correspondents But most people here assume that the group also includes U.S. special operations forces moving into Western Iraq to search for Scud missiles, like those that were fired from this area in 1991 against Israel. ROAD FROM BAGHDAD BOMBED Some of the people who made the five-hour trip from Baghdad to Jordan Thursday said they saw evidence that the road and a fuel depot about 100 miles west of Baghdad had been bombed. Passengers on a bus said they had to drive around craters in the pavement. And several people reported seeing bodies at the fuel depot, including that of a Jordanian truck driver. Although the station is used by civilians, it could also be used by Iraqi forces moving west from Baghdad into the desert. Officials of the Red Crescent said the two refugee camps they are constructing should be adequate for 30,000 to 50,000 people, and could with difficulty handle as many as 100,000. But if the refugee population is much larger, as it was during the 1991 war, they say they would be overwhelmed. 

Refugees will be given a blanket, a mattress, medicine and a box lunch, but it will be several days before a kitchen can be set up. Wells were drilled for water, but it was too salty, so desalination gear was brought in. Authorities say a ticket office will be set up for non-Iraqi refugees, so as many as possible can purchase transportation back to their home countries. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 






• In the battlezone • Iraq interactive library • Targets in Iraq • Target Baghdad • Urban warfare • Allied deployments • Tools of warfare • Scuds and Arrows • World Reax • NBC: Video reports from the field • Complete coverage: Conflict with Iraq THE RESPONSE HAD a familiar ring, echoing the long debate over whether war with Iraq was justified. Leaders worried and lamented, protesters condemned and demonstrated, friends of the United States proclaimed that it was ugly but sadly necessary. There was just one key difference Thursday: This time, military action in Iraq wasn’t just a possibility. It was becoming real. Muslim leaders in Asia condemned the U.S. attack and said Americans would pay. A response from the 30-million-strong moderate Muhammadiyah Muslim group in Indonesia came within minutes of the United States and Britain launching attacks on Iraq. “This is not an attack on Islam but an attack on humanity,” said Syafii Maarif, head of the organization. Latest on the military moves Deputy Malaysian Defense Minister Shafie Apdal told Reuters in Parliament that he feared reprisals by Iraqi sympathizers in other countries. Murid Timasaen, spokesman for Thailand’s Muslims for Peace Group, said Americans would never live in peace again. “They have attracted more enemies than ever, not only from the Muslim world, but also from the Buddhist community,” he said. “Countries like Iraq don’t have the capacity to fight the Americans in a conventional war, so more terrorist means will be deployed against the Americans.” JAPAN, PHILIPPINES BACK ATTACK Two Asian countries that have been supportive of the U.S. tough position on Iraq stepped in to reiterate their support. Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo said Manila was giving political and moral support for actions to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction. “The Philippines is part of the coalition of the willing” Arroyo said in a speech to graduates of the Philippine Military Academy. “We are giving political and moral support for actions to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction.” • Complete MSNBC coverage • Latest military developments • Kurds fleeing, again • Q &A with Peter Arnett • Top defector disappears • Video coverage from NBC • Blog: Army family's journal • Encarta: Detailed Iraq map • WashPost: Special coverage Latest from Newsweek • Zakaria: Arrogant empire • Waiting with the troops Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, putting a security alliance with the United States ahead of public opinion, reiterated his moral support for Washington on Thursday after the start of a U.S.-led attack on Iraq. “At this time... I understand, and I support the start of the use of force by the United States,” Koizumi told a news conference about an hour after Bush announced the start of the attack. Japanese troops, however, will not be fighting alongside U.S. forces. Japan’s postwar, pacifist constitution renounces war as a means of settling international disputes. • Daily updates on Iraq action Thailand said it wanted no part in the war. “But we are ready to help rehabilitate (Iraq) after the fighting, up to the extent of our resources,” Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said. “At this stage, we hope the war casualties will be confined only to military targets and not on civilians.” China said the action against Iraq was “violating the norms of international behavior.” Germany expressed “great concern and consternation” that its anti-war diplomacy with France and Russia had failed; it immediately turned attention to the aftermath — and offered help dealing with the humanitarian consequences. “Soon the United States will have to reap the fruits of what they are doing now, and the fruits won’t be sweet,” Russian legislator Vladimir Lukin, a former ambassador to Washington, told Russia’s state-controlled ORT television. • Deployments 
CONDEMNATION FROM IRAN Iran, Iraq’s neighbor and longtime enemy, issued immediate condemnation, calling the U.S. action “unjustifiable and illegitimate.” Neutral Finland weighed in, too, with President Tarja Halonen calling military force outside the U.N. Security Council “not acceptable.” “The ongoing war must not result in the marginalization of the United Nations,” she said. The United States and close ally Britain on Monday gave up trying to win the backing of the U.N. Security Council for a new resolution authorizing the use of force against Iraq, arguing that they already were within their rights to launch an invasion. In November, the Security Council had voted unanimously for a tough resolution that called on Iraq to disarm or face “serious consequences.” Several months of weapons inspections, however, were inconclusive, and key members of the council stood resolutely opposed to military action.

Bush's Deadline Passes Unheeded in Iraq 31 minutes ago By DAVID ESPO, AP Special Correspondent President Bush (news - web sites)'s deadline for Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) to surrender power passed unheeded Wednesday night, and war against Iraq (news - web sites) appeared inevitable. An American-led invasion force of 300,000 troops awaited the order to strike. AP Photo AP Photo Slideshow: Iraq and Saddam Hussein Baghdad Residents Brace for Impending War (AP Video) Latest news: · France, Others: Attack on Iraq Illegal AP - 18 minutes ago · Baghdad Streets Empty As Deadline Passes AP - 43 minutes ago · Air Force: U.S. Assault Will Stun Iraqis AP - 2 hours, 37 minutes ago Special Coverage U.S. and British forces massed in the Kuwaiti desert close to the Iraqi border, giant B-52 warplanes were loaded with bombs and Tomahawk missile-carrying ships were in position, all awaiting an attack order from Bush. The deadline came at 8 p.m. EST, which was 4 a.m. Thursday in Baghdad, its population shrunken in recent days by an exodus of thousands of fearful residents. "The disarmament of the Iraqi regime will begin at a time of the president's choosing," said his press secretary, Ari Fleischer (news - web sites), moments after 8 p.m. "The American people are ready for the disarmament of Saddam Hussein. They understand what's at stake. The military is ready, the nation is ready and the cause is just." Just after the deadline, White House chief of staff Andrew Card informed the president that intelligence officials had no information that Saddam had left Iraq. Saddam's regime gave every appearance of digging in. In the minutes after the deadline, Iraqi TV showed footage of a pro-Saddam march Tuesday in Baghdad, with members of the crowd chanting pro-Saddam slogans, some brandishing rifles and carrying pictures of Saddam. "We are dedicated to martyrdom in defense of Iraq under your leadership," a loyal Iraqi parliament assured the Iraqi dictator, and armed members of the ruling Baath party deployed behind hundreds of sandbagged defensive positions in Baghdad. Even so, 17 Iraqi soldiers surrendered to American GIs during the day, eager to give up before the shooting started. Bush met periodically throughout the day with his top aides at the White House and sent formal notice to Congress that reliance on "further diplomatic and other peaceful means alone" would not suffice to counter "the continuing threat posed by Iraq." Fleischer, said the nation "ought to be prepared for the loss" of American lives once the military effort begins to depose Saddam and recover weapons of mass destruction. Aides said the commander in chief would decide on timing based on the advice of his military commanders. More than 25 protesters were arrested outside the White House, part of a larger group of demonstrators that chanted, banged drums and carried signs that read, "Stop the War on Iraq." It seemed unlikely in the extreme. Along with the U.S.-led force approaching 300,000 troops massed in the Persian Gulf region were 1,000 combat aircraft and five aircraft carrier battle groups. The United States claims the public and private support of 45 other nations in a coalition to topple Saddam. But only Britain, with about 40,000 troops, was making a sizable contribution to the military force. In a run-up to war, U.S. aircraft also dropped nearly 2 million leaflets over southern Iraq with a variety of messages, including, for the first time, instructions to Iraqi troops on how to capitulate to avoid being killed. Hundreds of miles away, at an air base in England, crews loaded bombs aboard giant B-52 combat aircraft. Apart from the desire to capture weapons of mass destruction, Bush's submission to Congress said a military attack could lead to the discovery of information that would allow the apprehension of terrorists living in the United States. An attack, it said, "is a vital part of the international war on terrorism." Despite deep divisions at the United Nations (news - web sites), Bush also claimed "the authority — indeed, given the dangers involved, the duty — to use force against Iraq to protect the security of the American people and to compel compliance with United Nations resolutions." The diplomatic wheels turned still at the United Nations where foreign ministers were meeting in the Security Council at the request of the French and Germans, prominent critics of the American military operation. "This is a sad day for the United Nations," said the organization's secretary general, Kofi Annan (news - web sites) said. "I know that millions of people around the world share this sense of disappointment and are deeply alarmed." Bush abandoned diplomacy on Monday, and administration officials blamed French intransigence for the lack of consensus on a new Security Council resolution that would have given Saddam an ultimatum. The signs of imminent conflict were abundant. Israel ordered its citizens to start carrying their gas masks to work and to school. And hundreds of Israeli residents fled Tel Aviv, fearful that Iraq would launch missiles against their seaside city, as happened in the 1991 Persian Gulf War (news - web sites). Royal Jordanian — the only commercial airline with regularly scheduled flights to Baghdad — said it was canceling them in anticipation of war. And Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak (news - web sites) offered a dual-edged analysis. He blamed Iraq for the approaching military conflict. But he also said he hoped that "different international forces will realize the dangerous repercussions of any military action on the safety and stability of the Middle East region." Another country in the region, Bahrain, publicly offered exile to Saddam "in a dignified manner that should not be seen as undermining Iraq's position and capabilities." "It's the last-hour chance and we hope that Iraq will accept this offer to avoid war," Information Minister Nabil al-Hamer told The Associated Press. Exile for the Iraqi leader "is absolutely unthinkable," said Saadoon Hammadi, speaker of Iraq's parliament. "He will be in front of everyone. He will fight and guide our country to victory." 'Defining moment' dawns on America By Rick Hampson USA TODAY On a day when Americans should have been waiting for spring, they waited for war. As President Bush's deadline for Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein ticked closer, Tuesday rituals -- weekly play dates and poker games, Bible study and baseball practice -- went on. Meanwhile, a page in history was about to turn. Eddie Hannigan, 73, spent the morning attaching American flags to the white wooden fence lining his driveway off a country road in Fallbrook, Calif. His wife was out buying yellow ribbons to tie to the flagpole. ''Woke up this morning and the wife said, 'I think we should put out the flag,' '' said Hannigan, who fought in the 1950-53 Korean War. ''It's a private driveway. No one can stop me. But the neighbors all thought it was a good idea. I don't like war, but I support our troops.'' People were reminded of the lull after another presidential ultimatum on Iraq a dozen years ago. But this time they knew, through painful experience, that war isn't something that always happens somewhere else. ''This seems more real than the first Gulf War,'' said Mary Clark, 52, a New York state employee who was passing Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan. ''It was like watching a movie. It's still just as far away, but now we have threats on our own soil. It feels like part of the battlefield, for this war is going to be here at home.'' On the other side of the continent, a man fishing in the choppy Pacific off Oceanside, Calif., agreed. ''I feel absolutely certain that we will suffer destruction from terrorist attacks,'' said Les Hite, 61, an avocado grower. ''I hope we don't look back on this day and say that's when we could have done things differently.'' To many, the country seemed to have set off on a road with no turning back. Mike Lance, 24, a New York marketing assistant, called it ''a defining moment.'' Some embraced it. Parents and teachers from the Heights Christian School in Los Angeles said they gave no thought to canceling a school trip to Washington, D.C. ''It's great,'' said Carolyn Litchfield, as she toured the Capitol. ''We're here in the middle of history.'' After months of waiting, some people said battle would come as a relief. ''Let's just get this war over with already,'' Clark said. ''I'm so frustrated about how we keep hanging on edge about this.'' In Marion, Ind., Nanette Weesner tied the 32nd yellow ribbon -- one for every day her son has been stationed with the Army in the Persian Gulf -- on the staircase in her apartment. She said she hopes that whatever happens, ''it'll happen fast, and the troops come home.'' In Hinesville, Ga., location of Fort Stewart, one resident said the civilians in town are almost eager for war. ''They want to get it on and get it over with,'' said Marion Adams, 56, ''because it's messing up their business.'' Bob Dickinson, president of Carnival Cruise Lines, said Bush's speech actually helped travelers make plans. ''It's been a kind of limbo we've been in the last couple months. Now people who have delayed making travel plans can get back to normal,'' Dickinson said. Meanwhile, Americans stocked up on emergency supplies, lit votive candles and gave blood. A few took to the streets on Tuesday in protest and in support of attacking Iraq -- mothers of soldiers wearing yellow ribbons and mothers against war wearing pink ones. To some, it felt like a rerun of 1991: the international antagonists, the internal divisions, the economic worries, the concern about terrorism, the signs saying ''No Blood for Oil.'' But there were differences. This time, fast-food deliveries already have been banned at the New York Stock Exchange. The airport metal detectors already have been fine-tuned. Office workers already are wearing their ID badges. This time, Mr. Rogers will not be around to record messages to reassure children. Some voices from around the nation: * A truck stop in Racine, Wis. Rich Reis, 44, a trucker from Hanover Park, Ill., said he has had doubts for weeks about the war. He's a Navy veteran with two sons who also served in the military. Reis' son-in-law is on a Navy vessel with 600 Marines in the Gulf. He has been there for months and has never seen his second son, who was born in December. Reis still isn't sure Iraq poses any serious threat beyond the missiles it has destroyed. He hasn't seen what he calls ''hard-core'' proof. ''Give me something to grab a hold of if you are going to put my sons' lives on the line,'' he said. But Reis also thinks it's too late too argue: ''We can't wait any more. My feeling, if we go to war -- when we go to war --is win it. Win. Don't play. Win.'' * A coffee house in Denver A storm that dumped about 3 feet of snow made the war the No. 2 news story on Denver TV. ''It's all about the snow,'' said Reb Ryan, manager and co-owner of Buzz Fill 'Er Up Cafe. ''People here right now are focused on getting through this storm.'' She closed her business at mid-morning for lack of business. Those who did drop in talked about war. ''Sixty percent are saying, 'This is crazy. I can't believe we're doing this,' '' Ryan said. ''But I have quite a few cops who come through, and they're all gung-ho for it.'' In the days before the storm, she noticed a drop-off in sales of lattes, cappuccinos and espressos. ''I think people are not looking for luxuries,'' she said. By the time the president went on TV, ''people were all on edge. They didn't want to hang out here. They wanted to go somewhere so they could watch the news.'' * A terminal at LAX The tension was palpable in the Delta Air Lines baggage claim area at Los Angeles International Airport. ''Now that it's here, I fear that the end of the world is here,'' said Joanne Drake, 68, who was arriving home from a trip to Orlando with her daughter and grandchildren. ''We're all going to be in danger from biological and chemical weapons. I'm very fearful, but I don't think we have any other choice. We can't let Saddam keep going and going.'' ''I'm afraid of everything,'' said Mandy Park, 30, a health care worker visiting from Canada with her gray tomcat. But if Saddam is ''feeding into terrorism,'' she said, ''he has to be taken care of.'' * An anti-war group in St. Louis For Woody Powell, 70, it was a day to mourn for peace and prepare for war. The executive director of Veterans for Peace fielded phone calls and e-mails while helping to organize a demonstration in Washington on Saturday. When the war begins, he said, he'll head to a military recruiting station in St. Louis to try to talk young people out of signing up. Powell said he had enlisted in the Air Force during the Korean War, ''full of patriotic fervor and the urge to prove myself as a man, and full of all the fears of inadequacy.'' ''The experience of war is not a natural one for human beings, and it does unnatural things to their psyches,'' he said. ''There are other ways to prove yourself as a human being.'' 

* A sidewalk near Ground Zero There was optimism. ''It will not be bloody,'' predicted Stephanie Baker, 36, a customer service manager from Boston. And there was pessimism. ''Gas prices will go up. Stock prices will go down,'' said Allison Vanderbrul, 21, an undergraduate at the State University of New York-New Paltz. ''People will be afraid to invest. International relations with the U.S. will get worse. International investors won't invest. It's not going to bounce back quickly.'' Alex Woods, 21, a University of Arizona undergraduate from Tucson, said it was all beyond him. ''Basically, I don't really know what's going on,'' he said. ''I hope our leaders know more than we do. I'm hoping they are making the right decisions.''

Iraqi missile range: Under UN rules, Iraq is banned from having any missiles with a range greater than 93 miles (150 km). Controversy has arisen over the al-Samoud Two missile, which has travelled up to 112 miles (180 km) in tests. In response to requests by UN inspectors, Iraq has begun destroying some of its stock of 120 of these. Analysts also believe Iraq may have some banned missiles, although inspectors have not found any. These are believed to include a small number of 400-mile (644 km) range al-Hussein missiles, which would be capable of striking Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran and Kuwait. Iraq is also thought by some analysts to have 15 to 80 Scud B missiles with a range of 185 miles. Neither of these is very effective at dispersing chemical or biological weapons, according to the International Institute for Strategic Studies. The 560-mile (902 km) range al-Abbas missile was developed more than 10 years ago from earlier Scud types, but it is not clear whether it reached operational status. Iraq does not have the facilities to build long-range missiles and would require several years and foreign assistance to do this.

U.S. Bombards Iraqi Units with Calls to Surrender Tue Mar 18,12:03 PM ET Add Top Stories - Reuters to My Yahoo! 
By Charles Aldinger 
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military is bombarding military units in the south of Iraq (news - web sites) with leaflets, broadcasts and e-mails urging them to surrender rather than oppose a looming invasion, U.S. officials said on Tuesday. 
Speaking after President Bush (news - web sites) gave Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) a 48-hour deadline to leave or face war, the officials told Reuters there had been "scattered" signs of some success in the surrender initiative, but declined to give specifics. The U.S. Central Command said from its Gulf military headquarters in Qatar that 1.4 million leaflets were dumped on Iraq on Monday in the biggest drop to date in a months-long psychological warfare campaign of broadcasts and air drops. The intention, officials in Washington said, was in large measure to persuade Iraqi forces in the south to stand aside when U.S.-led forces sweep north from Kuwait toward the oil fields around the southern oil center of Basra en route to the capital of Baghdad. "Indications are very scattered, but I would say positive," said one official who asked not to be identified. Defense officials have said instructions being given to Iraqi forces were very specific, including telling them to leave their tanks with their turrets reversed and to abandon vehicles in the open while returning to barracks. The officials refused to detail the Iraqi responses but noted cautiously that Saddam's elite and hard-line Republican Guards units were stationed further north near Baghdad. AWAITING INVASION ORDER Of the 280,000 U.S. and British troops arrayed in the Gulf against Iraq, 175,000 are in Kuwait awaiting orders from Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites) to launch a massive air and ground invasion to remove Saddam and destroy alleged stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons. U.S. defense officials and private analysts say one of the first objectives of an invasion would be to overwhelm regular army units and take Basra only about 40 miles from the Kuwait border as tens of thousands of U.S. and British forces sweep northward. Basra is 340 miles southeast of Baghdad. At Camp As Sayliyah in Qatar, battle headquarters of the Central Command, a crewman from a U.S. C-130 Special Operations aircraft broadcasting messages into Iraq said the programs use music to capture attention of Iraqi listeners, then follow with information slamming Saddam and touting the nobility of the Western cause, all leading to a main point -- do not fight the invaders. "We call ourselves the weapons of mass persuasion," the crewman, identified only as Lt. Col. Mike, told reporters. 

But in Washington, U.S. defense officials also told Reuters there had been growing signs that Iraq was preparing to use chemical and biological weapons against invading troops and to destroy its own oil fields. "Some trenches dug in the south could be quickly filled with oil and set afire to delay any advance," said one U.S. official. "They might just blast rigs and blame it on us." At the Pentagon (news - web sites), one official confirmed a Washington Post report from Kuwait that the U.S. military was trying to negotiate "capitulation agreements" with Iraqi commanders under which enemy troops would turn over most of their weapons and return to their barracks rather than be taken prisoners of war. The advantage of such a move, which would allow Iraqi commanders to keep their sidearms, would be to alleviate the advancing American and British forces or the burden of keeping tens of thousands of prisoners while speeding northward.

Eighteen Iraqi border guards surrender to US army in Kuwait: military source Wed Mar 19, 2:24 PM ET IN THE NORTHERN KUWAITI DESERT (AFP) - Eighteen Iraqi border guards crossed the border into Kuwait and surrendered to US troops, a military source in the emirate told AFP. AFP Photo A US officer here had earlier said 15 Iraqi soldiers had surrendered, while the state KUNA news agency, quoting a Kuwaiti military source, put the number at 16. The military source who spoke to AFP on condition of anonymity said the 18 had crossed the border in two batches -- the first comprising two border guards and the second 16. 
The US officer earlier said the 15 Iraqis who turned themselves in to US troops had been handed over to Kuwaiti police. They were handed over after laying down their arms and giving up, said Captain Darrin Theriault, headquarters company commander of the First Brigade of the US Army's Third Infantry Division. The surrenders, at about 1500 GMT, came as a 48-hour ultimatum given by President George W. Bush (news - web sites) to Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) to leave his country by early Thursday or face a massive attack was running out. "We anticipate more (surrenders) as this continues to develop," Theriault told AFP. He stressed that the Kuwaiti police had custody of the Iraqi soldiers and "no enemy prisoners of war are under US control." The United States and Britain have some 280,000 troops mustered in the region readying an invasion of Iraq (news - web sites) after Saddam rejected Bush's warning to quit the country. About 174,000 are in Kuwait. 

US warplanes launch strikes at seven locations in southern Iraq Wed Mar 19, 5:29 PM ET WASHINGTON (AFP) - The United States and Britain conducted wide-ranging air strikes in southern and western Iraq (news - web sites), bombing long-range artillery and a surface-to-surface missile system that threatened coalition forces poised to invade the country from Kuwait, officials said. AFP Photo The warplanes struck at least seven locations over a 10 hour period as the clock ran on a US deadline for Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) and his two sons to leave the country or face war. US and British officials said the strikes were within the scope of normal enforcement of a no-fly zone over southern Iraq, and the US Central Command said they were launched in response to Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery fire. But the strikes targeted 10 artillery systems that had been moved last week into range of US and British forces massing in Kuwait for a ground offensive as well as a surface-to-surface missile system, a US defense official said. The Central Command said long range artillery were struck at Az Zubayr and in the Al Faw peninsula, and a surface-to surface missile system near Basra. Warplanes also bombed a traffic control radar near Basra and communications sites near Ash Shuaybah, Mydaysis and Ruwayshid in southern Iraq. "The artillery was struck because they were a danger to coalition ground troops in Kuwait," the command said. "The air traffic control radar was used to direct Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery fire at coalition aircraft." In western Iraq, they targeted a radar and an air defense command center near the H-3 airfield that defends the approaches to Baghdad from Jordan, the command said. "The coalition executed today's strikes after Iraqi forces fired anti-aircraft artillery at coalition aircraft patrolling the southern no-fly zone south of the 33rd parallel in Iraq," the command said. In London, a spokeswoman for the British Defence Ministry said, "We are flying over southern Iraq. This evening we are targeting systems which are a threat to our forces." "We have been doing this for the last 10 years. It's the same as we've been doing, but obviously the time is perhaps more relevant," the official said.

Though they talk by phone every day, Blair said he wanted face time with Bush to discuss how to rebuild a post-Saddam Iraq, and to explore ways of rebuilding US-Europe relations left in tatters in the run-up to war. "I am clear that the United Nations (news - web sites) must be centrally involved" not just in humanitarian relief as the war rages, but in rebuilding Iraq after the guns fall silent, he told a Downing Street press conference. Blair said he leave Wednesday after his mid-day question period in the House of Commons for Washington, from where he would immediately go to Bush's retreat at Camp David, Maryland for talks Wednesday night and Thursday. Later Thursday, he said, he would go to New York to see Annan, before flying back to London. "I will see president Bush at Camp David to discuss not just the military campaign but also the diplomatic implications of recent events for the future -- in particular how we get America and Europe working again together as partners and not as rivals," Blair said. The snap war summit would also "assess the best way of dealing with the humanitarian crisis in Iraq... how we rebuild Iraq post-Saddam, and also, of course, our approach to the Middle East peace process." Blair has been Bush's staunchest ally in the showdown with Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) over weapons of mass destruction, sending 45,000 soldiers, sailors and airmen, 120 tanks, a naval task force and 100-plus warplanes to join the US-led war. Opposition among Britons to war clearly appeared to be waning on day six of the fighting, with a poll in the Guardian newspaper Tuesday suggesting that 54 percent approved of a military attack to oust Saddam. On February 14, the figure had been 52 percent against. Britain suffered its second known combat fatality Monday when a member of Scotland's famed Black Watch regiment was killed in fighting near al-Zubayr, southwest of Basra. The first British soldier to die, a member of the Royal Tank Regiment, was killed in the same area Sunday, and two remain listed as missing. Fourteen other Britons died in two helicopter accidents, and two airmen perished when their Tornado bomber was hit by a US missile. Coalition commanders say Iraqi "irregulars" loyal to Saddam have been resisting British forces around Basra, but Blair insisted Tuesday that, overall, the invasion is going to plan. "It's precisely what you'd expect... These people are going to fight," he said, adding: "We have the forces that we need to do the job." In his first press conference since Bush launched the war Thursday with a volley of air strikes, Blair pledged that, unlike in the 1991 war to free Kuwait, the US-led coalition would not let the Iraqi people down. "My message to them is that this time we will not let you down. Saddam and his regime will be removed. Iraq will have a better future," the prime minsiter said. Warning the British people that the war is far from over, Blair said US, British and other forces would face "resistance all the way to the end of this campaign." "It will take time and perseverance and the continuing skill and dedication and professionalism of our armed forces to break it down," he said. Last Updated: Tuesday, 25 March, 2003, 17:54 GMT Email this to a friend Printable version Blair promises to back Iraqi people Tony Blair to meet George Bush Tony Blair has promised the Iraqi people that US-led coalition forces "will not let you down" as UK troops began firing in support of an apparent uprising in Basra. At his monthly news conference ahead of the assault on troop positions in the southern Iraqi city, Mr Blair said the military campaign had already achieved a "huge amount". He pledged: "Saddam Hussein and his regime will be removed. Iraq will have a better future ahead of it." Mr Blair said the Iraqi people were wary of rising up against Saddam Hussein's regime after the failure to remove the dictator following the Gulf War in 1991. He was speaking after fierce resistance from paramilitaries in Basra claimed a second British soldier's life. And coalition forces continued to advance on Baghdad - although delayed by fierce sandstorms - where they were expecting to meet extremely strong military opposition. Mr Blair also confirmed that he will fly to meet US President George Bush on Wednesday. The prime minister's spokesman said the discussions would centre on Iraq post-Saddam rather than on military strategy which had already been decided. Mr Blair is also due to hold talks with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on Thursday. LATEST FROM NEWSWEEK • Special war section • Q&A on smart weapons Who Will Try Iraqi War Criminals? By Ed Finn Posted Wednesday, March 19, 2003, at 3:19 PM PT 
In his speech to the nation Monday, President Bush promised that Iraqi war criminals would be tried and punished—but he didn't specify which criminals or in which court they would be tried. Which Iraqis will be tried, and who will judge them? The answers depend largely on the outcome of the war, once it's clear who's still alive to stand trial. Most experts agree that war-crimes trials will be limited to indictments against a small fraction of the thousands of likely suspects, since wiping out Iraq's government infrastructure (on top of its economic and military infrastructure) will make it that much harder to build a new state. In fact, the U.S. government has kept its official list of Iraqi war criminals extremely short, even though hundreds of officials have been implicated in the use of chemical weapons against Iraqi Kurds in 1988. It's likely that only the top echelons of the military will be tried—perhaps 50 people, perhaps more, depending on who you ask and whether or not local commanders fight. (If they surrender, they might escape prosecution.) For the invading Americans, "who" is tried is almost less important than "how," because these trials give the United States a much-needed chance to exhibit fairness and restraint after initiating a war. Possible trial venues include: International Criminal Court: This one can probably be ruled out—neither the U.S. nor Iraq ever agreed to it. Ironically, it might be legally possible to try British or Australian troops in the ICC for war crimes if they commit any atrocities, since their nations are signatories. U.N. ad hoc tribunal: This is a special international court that has to be mandated by the Security Council—recent examples include courts created to try war criminals from the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. Considering the intense misgivings fellow Security Council members like France and Russia have about the war, it is unlikely that the United States will ask them to create a tribunal. And even if they did, there's another snag if the blue helmets show up—no U.N. court can sentence a war criminal to death. U.S. federal courts: Under the War Crimes Act of 1996, war crimes by or against U.S. citizens can be prosecuted in American federal courts. This option also seems unlikely, however, because many of the crimes likely to be prosecuted involve Iraqi officials assaulting their own citizens. Local Iraqi courts: These might do for small-fry Baath loyalists. After all, the United States will be trying to create a respectable criminal justice system in Iraq, and war criminals would provide useful fodder to get things rolling. But it's unlikely that any of the regime's kingpins would face a local court, since there would be too many opportunities for political skullduggery and old allegiances to taint the process. Hybrid courts: All the rage since their success in Sierra Leone, hybrid courts bring together a combination of local and international jurists. The idea is to mix the grass-roots appeal of civil courts with the respectability and fence-mending powers of international courts. This option also allows the United States to involve European jurists without having to go through the United Nations. The flexibility of a hybrid court will be attractive to post-Iraq planners not because of its appeal to international justice but because it will allow the United States to better trade amnesty for information while still satisfying world opinion. Say the United States invades Iraq and raids all the bunkers and palaces but doesn't find weapons of mass destruction or Saddam Hussein. In that case, the post-war administration's first priority will be to pump Iraq's surviving officials for information—a process that could carry over to war crimes courts.

“I kind of felt sorry for them,” said one U.S. military official, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. “A lot of them looked hungry. They haven’t been fed in a while.” He spoke after U.S. Marines and their allies took control of the strategic port city of Umm Qasr and with it, Iraq’s access to the Persian Gulf. The outclassed Iraqis fought with small arms, pistols, machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. Authorities said the nation’s southern oil fields would be secured by day’s end. At the same time, the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division surged 100 miles into Iraq. Much more was to come — an extraordinary land-based juggernaut of allied weaponry and troops was caught in an enormous traffic jam in Kuwait, ready to strike when it could cross the border. SOME RESISTANCE There were pockets of resistance, some of it stiff; a second combat death was reported Friday, a member of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force who was wounded while battling a platoon of Iraqi infantry. But often, the opponent advanced with a white flag in hand instead of a rifle. Within a few hours of crossing into southern Iraq, the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit encountered 200 or more Iraqi troops seeking to surrender. One group of 40 Iraqis marched down a two-lane road toward the Americans and gave up. Another group of Iraqi soldiers alongside a road waved a white flag and their raised hands, trying to flag down a group of journalists so they could surrender. Forty to 50 Iraqi soldiers surrendered to a Marine traffic control unit. They came down the road in the open back of a troop vehicle, their hands in the air for about a mile before they reached the Marines. Their decision to give up the fight was not unexpected, or unprompted; for months, Iraq has been bombarded with messages from the Americans, urging its soldiers to refuse to fight. • In the battle zone • Iraq interactive library • Targets in Iraq • Target Baghdad • Urban warfare • Allied deployments • The 1991 oil fires • Tools of warfare • Scuds and Arrows • World Reax • NBC: Video reports from the field • Complete coverage: Conflict with Iraq At a Pentagon news conference Friday, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld called on Iraq’s military to “do the honorable thing, stop fighting that you may live to enjoy a free Iraq, where you and your children can grow and prosper.” How many Iraqis had surrendered? No one knew for sure. Rumsfeld said he knew of a few hundred, and others who just quit fighting. “A lot of people just leave and melt into the countryside,” he said. In Baghdad, however, an Iraqi military spokesman denied there had been any large-scale surrender. “The 51st Army Division is still fighting the invading troops ferociously and courageously and inflicting upon the enemy forces the ugliest losses,” he said, reading a statement on Iraqi television Saturday. GROUND ADVANCE FASTER THAN PLANNED Rumsfeld said the allied forces were advancing and now controlled “a growing portion of the country of Iraq.” The captured territory included two airfields in western Iraq. The ground advance into Iraq appeared to be moving faster than planned. Units reached locations in Iraq 24 hours ahead of their expected arrival time, according to several reporters attached to those units. The Army’s 3rd Infantry Division was following a path through the desert west of the Euphrates River, avoiding populated areas. It appeared that strategists sought to minimize civilian and military casualties by flanking most Iraqi units and going straight for the Republican Guard around Baghdad. The bulk of the allied force hadn’t even entered Iraq yet. 'Target: Iraq' on MSNBC TV All day, all night coverage • MSNBC brings you live coverage of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Tom Brokaw and Lester Holt anchor, with reports from Peter Arnett in Baghdad. There was a huge traffic jam at the border - thousands of vehicles parked in parallel rows, nothing but columns of trucks, Humvees, oil tankers, flatbed tucks, armored vehicles and vehicles of every stripe, from horizon to horizon. The traffic was so bad that it took 6½ hours for one unit to go 51 miles, in swirling dust. Crossing the border Friday morning, the 3rd Battalion of the 7th Marine Infantry faced little resistance. Tanks attached to the battalion attacked five Iraqi tanks just north of the border, destroying them easily. TAKING SAFWAN The battalion passed the brown, stone rubble of several buildings it had shelled just minutes before — the air still held the acrid smell of explosives — and at least five enormous pictures of a smiling Saddam Hussein, some with him wearing a robe, others with him in a headscarf, that stood intact at the border post. They reached the town of Safwan, where speakers warned Iraqis to stay out of the Marines’ way. A few ventured outside: A man on the side of the road bearing a white flag. Another in a long, gray robe, prostrate on the ground, apparently in prayer. “I never thought I’d see this place,” said Cpl. Matt Nale, 31, of Seattle, Wash. He stuck his head out of the top of an Amtrack armored personnel carrier, looked around, smiled and repeatedly nodded with wonder. The Marines later took control of positions mostly abandoned by Iraq’s 32nd Mechanized Infantry Brigade, blowing up a few abandoned tanks and armored personnel carriers and engaging in short firefights with a few Iraqi soldiers who had stayed back to defend their headquarters and barracks or were unable to flee in time.

Pentagon: Iraq could flood Tigris for defense Tactic was used to slow Iranian forces during Iran-Iraq War Friday, March 21, 2003 Posted: 4:24 AM EST (0924 GMT) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Story Tools -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- U.S. military planners are devising strategies in case the Iraqi military causes the Tigris River to flood, the Pentagon said Friday. If the Iraqi military were to release water into the Tigris from upstream reservoirs, extensive flooding could occur between Baghdad and Kut, to the south, the Pentagon said. Thousands of Iraqis could be displaced, adding to congestion on roads and requiring extensive humanitarian support. The Pentagon said Iraq used flooding to deter Iranian advances during the Iran-Iraq War. 
"Iraq's strategy could include releasing a small amount of water from major dams and canals to interrupt maneuvering units," said a U.S. statement released early Friday. "Iraq also could cause catastrophic flooding of portions of the Tigris and Euphrates river valleys, either by releasing large amounts of water from dams or by destroying them." Although the latter could cause "major humanitarian crises in parts of Iraq, Baghdad would experience minimal damage," the statement said. Parts of southern Iraq routinely flood in March and April because of heavy rainfall and snow melting in the north. Some areas that are already under water could be impassable for four to six weeks, even without additional flooding, the Pentagon said. "The [Saddam] Hussein regime could incorporate the flooding into defensive preparations to slow the advance of coalition forces," the Pentagon said. "This tactic could force coalition units or displaced persons through flooded areas." Primary water sources for such "strategic flooding" are the Qadisiyah Dam and its Hadiyha Reservoir, the Pentagon said. Additionally, the release of water from five reservoirs -- Saddam, Dokan, Al Azim, Darbandikhan and Diyala -- could increase the flow rate of the Tigris. The rainy season is already expected to raise water levels in these dams, the Pentagon said. 




A FEW DOZEN tents went up on Thursday morning in a camp near here, some 35 miles from the border with Iraq. Non-Iraqis fleeing from Iraq will be sheltered here, and already Thursday several dozen Sudanese workers and their families were huddling in the tents, which were being whipped by winds of 30 to 35 mph. The border area has been swept by sandstorms for the past three days. A second camp, for Iraqis, was being constructed a few miles away. Reporters visiting the border area Thursday morning found it was open, but the Jordanian military quickly ordered journalists to move away, saying a six-mile zone around the border was closed to the press. U.S. missiles hit buildings in Baghdad Iraq says civilian buildings hit, civilian killed U.S.-led forces launch ground assault Iraqi oil wells on fire White House urges Saddam to go into exile Downed U.S. helicopter returns to air U.S. sources: "Shock and awe" assault yet to come That zone includes a Jordanian military base that has been extensively renovated by the United States in recent weeks. An estimated 300 to 400 U.S. troops are at the base, officially to engage in search-and-rescue missions for downed allied pilots. • In the battle zone • Iraq interactive library • Targets in Iraq • Target Baghdad • Urban warfare • Allied deployments • The 1991 oil fires • Tools of warfare • Scuds and Arrows • World Reax • NBC: Video reports from the field • Complete coverage: Conflict with Iraq Read more dispatches from NBC News correspondents But most people here assume that the group also includes U.S. special operations forces moving into Western Iraq to search for Scud missiles, like those that were fired from this area in 1991 against Israel. ROAD FROM BAGHDAD BOMBED Some of the people who made the five-hour trip from Baghdad to Jordan Thursday said they saw evidence that the road and a fuel depot about 100 miles west of Baghdad had been bombed. Passengers on a bus said they had to drive around craters in the pavement. And several people reported seeing bodies at the fuel depot, including that of a Jordanian truck driver. Although the station is used by civilians, it could also be used by Iraqi forces moving west from Baghdad into the desert. Officials of the Red Crescent said the two refugee camps they are constructing should be adequate for 30,000 to 50,000 people, and could with difficulty handle as many as 100,000. But if the refugee population is much larger, as it was during the 1991 war, they say they would be overwhelmed. 

Refugees will be given a blanket, a mattress, medicine and a box lunch, but it will be several days before a kitchen can be set up. Wells were drilled for water, but it was too salty, so desalination gear was brought in. Authorities say a ticket office will be set up for non-Iraqi refugees, so as many as possible can purchase transportation back to their home countries. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 






• In the battlezone • Iraq interactive library • Targets in Iraq • Target Baghdad • Urban warfare • Allied deployments • Tools of warfare • Scuds and Arrows • World Reax • NBC: Video reports from the field • Complete coverage: Conflict with Iraq THE RESPONSE HAD a familiar ring, echoing the long debate over whether war with Iraq was justified. Leaders worried and lamented, protesters condemned and demonstrated, friends of the United States proclaimed that it was ugly but sadly necessary. There was just one key difference Thursday: This time, military action in Iraq wasn’t just a possibility. It was becoming real. Muslim leaders in Asia condemned the U.S. attack and said Americans would pay. A response from the 30-million-strong moderate Muhammadiyah Muslim group in Indonesia came within minutes of the United States and Britain launching attacks on Iraq. “This is not an attack on Islam but an attack on humanity,” said Syafii Maarif, head of the organization. Latest on the military moves Deputy Malaysian Defense Minister Shafie Apdal told Reuters in Parliament that he feared reprisals by Iraqi sympathizers in other countries. Murid Timasaen, spokesman for Thailand’s Muslims for Peace Group, said Americans would never live in peace again. “They have attracted more enemies than ever, not only from the Muslim world, but also from the Buddhist community,” he said. “Countries like Iraq don’t have the capacity to fight the Americans in a conventional war, so more terrorist means will be deployed against the Americans.” JAPAN, PHILIPPINES BACK ATTACK Two Asian countries that have been supportive of the U.S. tough position on Iraq stepped in to reiterate their support. Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo said Manila was giving political and moral support for actions to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction. “The Philippines is part of the coalition of the willing” Arroyo said in a speech to graduates of the Philippine Military Academy. “We are giving political and moral support for actions to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction.” • Complete MSNBC coverage • Latest military developments • Kurds fleeing, again • Q &A with Peter Arnett • Top defector disappears • Video coverage from NBC • Blog: Army family's journal • Encarta: Detailed Iraq map • WashPost: Special coverage Latest from Newsweek • Zakaria: Arrogant empire • Waiting with the troops Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, putting a security alliance with the United States ahead of public opinion, reiterated his moral support for Washington on Thursday after the start of a U.S.-led attack on Iraq. “At this time... I understand, and I support the start of the use of force by the United States,” Koizumi told a news conference about an hour after Bush announced the start of the attack. Japanese troops, however, will not be fighting alongside U.S. forces. Japan’s postwar, pacifist constitution renounces war as a means of settling international disputes. • Daily updates on Iraq action Thailand said it wanted no part in the war. “But we are ready to help rehabilitate (Iraq) after the fighting, up to the extent of our resources,” Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said. “At this stage, we hope the war casualties will be confined only to military targets and not on civilians.” China said the action against Iraq was “violating the norms of international behavior.” Germany expressed “great concern and consternation” that its anti-war diplomacy with France and Russia had failed; it immediately turned attention to the aftermath — and offered help dealing with the humanitarian consequences. “Soon the United States will have to reap the fruits of what they are doing now, and the fruits won’t be sweet,” Russian legislator Vladimir Lukin, a former ambassador to Washington, told Russia’s state-controlled ORT television. • Deployments 
CONDEMNATION FROM IRAN Iran, Iraq’s neighbor and longtime enemy, issued immediate condemnation, calling the U.S. action “unjustifiable and illegitimate.” Neutral Finland weighed in, too, with President Tarja Halonen calling military force outside the U.N. Security Council “not acceptable.” “The ongoing war must not result in the marginalization of the United Nations,” she said. The United States and close ally Britain on Monday gave up trying to win the backing of the U.N. Security Council for a new resolution authorizing the use of force against Iraq, arguing that they already were within their rights to launch an invasion. In November, the Security Council had voted unanimously for a tough resolution that called on Iraq to disarm or face “serious consequences.” Several months of weapons inspections, however, were inconclusive, and key members of the council stood resolutely opposed to military action.

Bush's Deadline Passes Unheeded in Iraq 31 minutes ago By DAVID ESPO, AP Special Correspondent President Bush (news - web sites)'s deadline for Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) to surrender power passed unheeded Wednesday night, and war against Iraq (news - web sites) appeared inevitable. An American-led invasion force of 300,000 troops awaited the order to strike. AP Photo AP Photo Slideshow: Iraq and Saddam Hussein Baghdad Residents Brace for Impending War (AP Video) Latest news: · France, Others: Attack on Iraq Illegal AP - 18 minutes ago · Baghdad Streets Empty As Deadline Passes AP - 43 minutes ago · Air Force: U.S. Assault Will Stun Iraqis AP - 2 hours, 37 minutes ago Special Coverage U.S. and British forces massed in the Kuwaiti desert close to the Iraqi border, giant B-52 warplanes were loaded with bombs and Tomahawk missile-carrying ships were in position, all awaiting an attack order from Bush. The deadline came at 8 p.m. EST, which was 4 a.m. Thursday in Baghdad, its population shrunken in recent days by an exodus of thousands of fearful residents. "The disarmament of the Iraqi regime will begin at a time of the president's choosing," said his press secretary, Ari Fleischer (news - web sites), moments after 8 p.m. "The American people are ready for the disarmament of Saddam Hussein. They understand what's at stake. The military is ready, the nation is ready and the cause is just." Just after the deadline, White House chief of staff Andrew Card informed the president that intelligence officials had no information that Saddam had left Iraq. Saddam's regime gave every appearance of digging in. In the minutes after the deadline, Iraqi TV showed footage of a pro-Saddam march Tuesday in Baghdad, with members of the crowd chanting pro-Saddam slogans, some brandishing rifles and carrying pictures of Saddam. "We are dedicated to martyrdom in defense of Iraq under your leadership," a loyal Iraqi parliament assured the Iraqi dictator, and armed members of the ruling Baath party deployed behind hundreds of sandbagged defensive positions in Baghdad. Even so, 17 Iraqi soldiers surrendered to American GIs during the day, eager to give up before the shooting started. Bush met periodically throughout the day with his top aides at the White House and sent formal notice to Congress that reliance on "further diplomatic and other peaceful means alone" would not suffice to counter "the continuing threat posed by Iraq." Fleischer, said the nation "ought to be prepared for the loss" of American lives once the military effort begins to depose Saddam and recover weapons of mass destruction. Aides said the commander in chief would decide on timing based on the advice of his military commanders. More than 25 protesters were arrested outside the White House, part of a larger group of demonstrators that chanted, banged drums and carried signs that read, "Stop the War on Iraq." It seemed unlikely in the extreme. Along with the U.S.-led force approaching 300,000 troops massed in the Persian Gulf region were 1,000 combat aircraft and five aircraft carrier battle groups. The United States claims the public and private support of 45 other nations in a coalition to topple Saddam. But only Britain, with about 40,000 troops, was making a sizable contribution to the military force. In a run-up to war, U.S. aircraft also dropped nearly 2 million leaflets over southern Iraq with a variety of messages, including, for the first time, instructions to Iraqi troops on how to capitulate to avoid being killed. Hundreds of miles away, at an air base in England, crews loaded bombs aboard giant B-52 combat aircraft. Apart from the desire to capture weapons of mass destruction, Bush's submission to Congress said a military attack could lead to the discovery of information that would allow the apprehension of terrorists living in the United States. An attack, it said, "is a vital part of the international war on terrorism." Despite deep divisions at the United Nations (news - web sites), Bush also claimed "the authority — indeed, given the dangers involved, the duty — to use force against Iraq to protect the security of the American people and to compel compliance with United Nations resolutions." The diplomatic wheels turned still at the United Nations where foreign ministers were meeting in the Security Council at the request of the French and Germans, prominent critics of the American military operation. "This is a sad day for the United Nations," said the organization's secretary general, Kofi Annan (news - web sites) said. "I know that millions of people around the world share this sense of disappointment and are deeply alarmed." Bush abandoned diplomacy on Monday, and administration officials blamed French intransigence for the lack of consensus on a new Security Council resolution that would have given Saddam an ultimatum. The signs of imminent conflict were abundant. Israel ordered its citizens to start carrying their gas masks to work and to school. And hundreds of Israeli residents fled Tel Aviv, fearful that Iraq would launch missiles against their seaside city, as happened in the 1991 Persian Gulf War (news - web sites). Royal Jordanian — the only commercial airline with regularly scheduled flights to Baghdad — said it was canceling them in anticipation of war. And Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak (news - web sites) offered a dual-edged analysis. He blamed Iraq for the approaching military conflict. But he also said he hoped that "different international forces will realize the dangerous repercussions of any military action on the safety and stability of the Middle East region." Another country in the region, Bahrain, publicly offered exile to Saddam "in a dignified manner that should not be seen as undermining Iraq's position and capabilities." "It's the last-hour chance and we hope that Iraq will accept this offer to avoid war," Information Minister Nabil al-Hamer told The Associated Press. Exile for the Iraqi leader "is absolutely unthinkable," said Saadoon Hammadi, speaker of Iraq's parliament. "He will be in front of everyone. He will fight and guide our country to victory." 'Defining moment' dawns on America By Rick Hampson USA TODAY On a day when Americans should have been waiting for spring, they waited for war. As President Bush's deadline for Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein ticked closer, Tuesday rituals -- weekly play dates and poker games, Bible study and baseball practice -- went on. Meanwhile, a page in history was about to turn. Eddie Hannigan, 73, spent the morning attaching American flags to the white wooden fence lining his driveway off a country road in Fallbrook, Calif. His wife was out buying yellow ribbons to tie to the flagpole. ''Woke up this morning and the wife said, 'I think we should put out the flag,' '' said Hannigan, who fought in the 1950-53 Korean War. ''It's a private driveway. No one can stop me. But the neighbors all thought it was a good idea. I don't like war, but I support our troops.'' People were reminded of the lull after another presidential ultimatum on Iraq a dozen years ago. But this time they knew, through painful experience, that war isn't something that always happens somewhere else. ''This seems more real than the first Gulf War,'' said Mary Clark, 52, a New York state employee who was passing Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan. ''It was like watching a movie. It's still just as far away, but now we have threats on our own soil. It feels like part of the battlefield, for this war is going to be here at home.'' On the other side of the continent, a man fishing in the choppy Pacific off Oceanside, Calif., agreed. ''I feel absolutely certain that we will suffer destruction from terrorist attacks,'' said Les Hite, 61, an avocado grower. ''I hope we don't look back on this day and say that's when we could have done things differently.'' To many, the country seemed to have set off on a road with no turning back. Mike Lance, 24, a New York marketing assistant, called it ''a defining moment.'' Some embraced it. Parents and teachers from the Heights Christian School in Los Angeles said they gave no thought to canceling a school trip to Washington, D.C. ''It's great,'' said Carolyn Litchfield, as she toured the Capitol. ''We're here in the middle of history.'' After months of waiting, some people said battle would come as a relief. ''Let's just get this war over with already,'' Clark said. ''I'm so frustrated about how we keep hanging on edge about this.'' In Marion, Ind., Nanette Weesner tied the 32nd yellow ribbon -- one for every day her son has been stationed with the Army in the Persian Gulf -- on the staircase in her apartment. She said she hopes that whatever happens, ''it'll happen fast, and the troops come home.'' In Hinesville, Ga., location of Fort Stewart, one resident said the civilians in town are almost eager for war. ''They want to get it on and get it over with,'' said Marion Adams, 56, ''because it's messing up their business.'' Bob Dickinson, president of Carnival Cruise Lines, said Bush's speech actually helped travelers make plans. ''It's been a kind of limbo we've been in the last couple months. Now people who have delayed making travel plans can get back to normal,'' Dickinson said. Meanwhile, Americans stocked up on emergency supplies, lit votive candles and gave blood. A few took to the streets on Tuesday in protest and in support of attacking Iraq -- mothers of soldiers wearing yellow ribbons and mothers against war wearing pink ones. To some, it felt like a rerun of 1991: the international antagonists, the internal divisions, the economic worries, the concern about terrorism, the signs saying ''No Blood for Oil.'' But there were differences. This time, fast-food deliveries already have been banned at the New York Stock Exchange. The airport metal detectors already have been fine-tuned. Office workers already are wearing their ID badges. This time, Mr. Rogers will not be around to record messages to reassure children. Some voices from around the nation: * A truck stop in Racine, Wis. Rich Reis, 44, a trucker from Hanover Park, Ill., said he has had doubts for weeks about the war. He's a Navy veteran with two sons who also served in the military. Reis' son-in-law is on a Navy vessel with 600 Marines in the Gulf. He has been there for months and has never seen his second son, who was born in December. Reis still isn't sure Iraq poses any serious threat beyond the missiles it has destroyed. He hasn't seen what he calls ''hard-core'' proof. ''Give me something to grab a hold of if you are going to put my sons' lives on the line,'' he said. But Reis also thinks it's too late too argue: ''We can't wait any more. My feeling, if we go to war -- when we go to war --is win it. Win. Don't play. Win.'' * A coffee house in Denver A storm that dumped about 3 feet of snow made the war the No. 2 news story on Denver TV. ''It's all about the snow,'' said Reb Ryan, manager and co-owner of Buzz Fill 'Er Up Cafe. ''People here right now are focused on getting through this storm.'' She closed her business at mid-morning for lack of business. Those who did drop in talked about war. ''Sixty percent are saying, 'This is crazy. I can't believe we're doing this,' '' Ryan said. ''But I have quite a few cops who come through, and they're all gung-ho for it.'' In the days before the storm, she noticed a drop-off in sales of lattes, cappuccinos and espressos. ''I think people are not looking for luxuries,'' she said. By the time the president went on TV, ''people were all on edge. They didn't want to hang out here. They wanted to go somewhere so they could watch the news.'' * A terminal at LAX The tension was palpable in the Delta Air Lines baggage claim area at Los Angeles International Airport. ''Now that it's here, I fear that the end of the world is here,'' said Joanne Drake, 68, who was arriving home from a trip to Orlando with her daughter and grandchildren. ''We're all going to be in danger from biological and chemical weapons. I'm very fearful, but I don't think we have any other choice. We can't let Saddam keep going and going.'' ''I'm afraid of everything,'' said Mandy Park, 30, a health care worker visiting from Canada with her gray tomcat. But if Saddam is ''feeding into terrorism,'' she said, ''he has to be taken care of.'' * An anti-war group in St. Louis For Woody Powell, 70, it was a day to mourn for peace and prepare for war. The executive director of Veterans for Peace fielded phone calls and e-mails while helping to organize a demonstration in Washington on Saturday. When the war begins, he said, he'll head to a military recruiting station in St. Louis to try to talk young people out of signing up. Powell said he had enlisted in the Air Force during the Korean War, ''full of patriotic fervor and the urge to prove myself as a man, and full of all the fears of inadequacy.'' ''The experience of war is not a natural one for human beings, and it does unnatural things to their psyches,'' he said. ''There are other ways to prove yourself as a human being.'' 

* A sidewalk near Ground Zero There was optimism. ''It will not be bloody,'' predicted Stephanie Baker, 36, a customer service manager from Boston. And there was pessimism. ''Gas prices will go up. Stock prices will go down,'' said Allison Vanderbrul, 21, an undergraduate at the State University of New York-New Paltz. ''People will be afraid to invest. International relations with the U.S. will get worse. International investors won't invest. It's not going to bounce back quickly.'' Alex Woods, 21, a University of Arizona undergraduate from Tucson, said it was all beyond him. ''Basically, I don't really know what's going on,'' he said. ''I hope our leaders know more than we do. I'm hoping they are making the right decisions.''

Iraqi missile range: Under UN rules, Iraq is banned from having any missiles with a range greater than 93 miles (150 km). Controversy has arisen over the al-Samoud Two missile, which has travelled up to 112 miles (180 km) in tests. In response to requests by UN inspectors, Iraq has begun destroying some of its stock of 120 of these. Analysts also believe Iraq may have some banned missiles, although inspectors have not found any. These are believed to include a small number of 400-mile (644 km) range al-Hussein missiles, which would be capable of striking Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran and Kuwait. Iraq is also thought by some analysts to have 15 to 80 Scud B missiles with a range of 185 miles. Neither of these is very effective at dispersing chemical or biological weapons, according to the International Institute for Strategic Studies. The 560-mile (902 km) range al-Abbas missile was developed more than 10 years ago from earlier Scud types, but it is not clear whether it reached operational status. Iraq does not have the facilities to build long-range missiles and would require several years and foreign assistance to do this. 


My teacher is called Jessie...she displayed herself for Carnival!...Look at Mas! Top Stories - Reuters U.S. Bombards Iraqi Units with Calls to Surrender Tue Mar 18,12:03 PM ET Add Top Stories - Reuters to My Yahoo! By Charles Aldinger WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military is bombarding military units in the south of Iraq (news - web sites) with leaflets, broadcasts and e-mails urging them to surrender rather than oppose a looming invasion, U.S. officials said on Tuesday. Reuters Photo AP Photo Slideshow: U.S. Military Build-Up U.S. Infantry Shows Off Powerful Tanks in Kuwait (AP Video) U.S. Military Hardware Unloads in Turkey (AP Video) Latest news: · U.S. Commanders Rechecking War Plans AP - 16 minutes ago · U.S. Faces Unknowns if It Heads to War AP - 1 hour, 32 minutes ago · Relations Among U.S. Religions at a Low AP - 1 hour, 51 minutes ago Special Coverage Speaking after President Bush (news - web sites) gave Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) a 48-hour deadline to leave or face war, the officials told Reuters there had been "scattered" signs of some success in the surrender initiative, but declined to give specifics. The U.S. Central Command said from its Gulf military headquarters in Qatar that 1.4 million leaflets were dumped on Iraq on Monday in the biggest drop to date in a months-long psychological warfare campaign of broadcasts and air drops. The intention, officials in Washington said, was in large measure to persuade Iraqi forces in the south to stand aside when U.S.-led forces sweep north from Kuwait toward the oil fields around the southern oil center of Basra en route to the capital of Baghdad. "Indications are very scattered, but I would say positive," said one official who asked not to be identified. Defense officials have said instructions being given to Iraqi forces were very specific, including telling them to leave their tanks with their turrets reversed and to abandon vehicles in the open while returning to barracks. The officials refused to detail the Iraqi responses but noted cautiously that Saddam's elite and hard-line Republican Guards units were stationed further north near Baghdad. AWAITING INVASION ORDER Of the 280,000 U.S. and British troops arrayed in the Gulf against Iraq, 175,000 are in Kuwait awaiting orders from Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites) to launch a massive air and ground invasion to remove Saddam and destroy alleged stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons. U.S. defense officials and private analysts say one of the first objectives of an invasion would be to overwhelm regular army units and take Basra only about 40 miles from the Kuwait border as tens of thousands of U.S. and British forces sweep northward. Basra is 340 miles southeast of Baghdad. At Camp As Sayliyah in Qatar, battle headquarters of the Central Command, a crewman from a U.S. C-130 Special Operations aircraft broadcasting messages into Iraq said the programs use music to capture attention of Iraqi listeners, then follow with information slamming Saddam and touting the nobility of the Western cause, all leading to a main point -- do not fight the invaders. "We call ourselves the weapons of mass persuasion," the crewman, identified only as Lt. Col. Mike, told reporters. 

But in Washington, U.S. defense officials also told Reuters there had been growing signs that Iraq was preparing to use chemical and biological weapons against invading troops and to destroy its own oil fields. "Some trenches dug in the south could be quickly filled with oil and set afire to delay any advance," said one U.S. official. "They might just blast rigs and blame it on us." At the Pentagon (news - web sites), one official confirmed a Washington Post report from Kuwait that the U.S. military was trying to negotiate "capitulation agreements" with Iraqi commanders under which enemy troops would turn over most of their weapons and return to their barracks rather than be taken prisoners of war. The advantage of such a move, which would allow Iraqi commanders to keep their sidearms, would be to alleviate the advancing American and British forces or the burden of keeping tens of thousands of prisoners while speeding northward.

Eighteen Iraqi border guards surrender to US army in Kuwait: military source Wed Mar 19, 2:24 PM ET IN THE NORTHERN KUWAITI DESERT (AFP) - Eighteen Iraqi border guards crossed the border into Kuwait and surrendered to US troops, a military source in the emirate told AFP. AFP Photo A US officer here had earlier said 15 Iraqi soldiers had surrendered, while the state KUNA news agency, quoting a Kuwaiti military source, put the number at 16. The military source who spoke to AFP on condition of anonymity said the 18 had crossed the border in two batches -- the first comprising two border guards and the second 16. 
The US officer earlier said the 15 Iraqis who turned themselves in to US troops had been handed over to Kuwaiti police. They were handed over after laying down their arms and giving up, said Captain Darrin Theriault, headquarters company commander of the First Brigade of the US Army's Third Infantry Division. The surrenders, at about 1500 GMT, came as a 48-hour ultimatum given by President George W. Bush (news - web sites) to Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) to leave his country by early Thursday or face a massive attack was running out. "We anticipate more (surrenders) as this continues to develop," Theriault told AFP. He stressed that the Kuwaiti police had custody of the Iraqi soldiers and "no enemy prisoners of war are under US control." The United States and Britain have some 280,000 troops mustered in the region readying an invasion of Iraq (news - web sites) after Saddam rejected Bush's warning to quit the country. About 174,000 are in Kuwait. 

US warplanes launch strikes at seven locations in southern Iraq Wed Mar 19, 5:29 PM ET WASHINGTON (AFP) - The United States and Britain conducted wide-ranging air strikes in southern and western Iraq (news - web sites), bombing long-range artillery and a surface-to-surface missile system that threatened coalition forces poised to invade the country from Kuwait, officials said. AFP Photo The warplanes struck at least seven locations over a 10 hour period as the clock ran on a US deadline for Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) and his two sons to leave the country or face war. US and British officials said the strikes were within the scope of normal enforcement of a no-fly zone over southern Iraq, and the US Central Command said they were launched in response to Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery fire. But the strikes targeted 10 artillery systems that had been moved last week into range of US and British forces massing in Kuwait for a ground offensive as well as a surface-to-surface missile system, a US defense official said. The Central Command said long range artillery were struck at Az Zubayr and in the Al Faw peninsula, and a surface-to surface missile system near Basra. Warplanes also bombed a traffic control radar near Basra and communications sites near Ash Shuaybah, Mydaysis and Ruwayshid in southern Iraq. "The artillery was struck because they were a danger to coalition ground troops in Kuwait," the command said. "The air traffic control radar was used to direct Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery fire at coalition aircraft." In western Iraq, they targeted a radar and an air defense command center near the H-3 airfield that defends the approaches to Baghdad from Jordan, the command said. "The coalition executed today's strikes after Iraqi forces fired anti-aircraft artillery at coalition aircraft patrolling the southern no-fly zone south of the 33rd parallel in Iraq," the command said. In London, a spokeswoman for the British Defence Ministry said, "We are flying over southern Iraq. This evening we are targeting systems which are a threat to our forces." "We have been doing this for the last 10 years. It's the same as we've been doing, but obviously the time is perhaps more relevant," the official said.

Though they talk by phone every day, Blair said he wanted face time with Bush to discuss how to rebuild a post-Saddam Iraq, and to explore ways of rebuilding US-Europe relations left in tatters in the run-up to war. "I am clear that the United Nations (news - web sites) must be centrally involved" not just in humanitarian relief as the war rages, but in rebuilding Iraq after the guns fall silent, he told a Downing Street press conference. Blair said he leave Wednesday after his mid-day question period in the House of Commons for Washington, from where he would immediately go to Bush's retreat at Camp David, Maryland for talks Wednesday night and Thursday. Later Thursday, he said, he would go to New York to see Annan, before flying back to London. "I will see president Bush at Camp David to discuss not just the military campaign but also the diplomatic implications of recent events for the future -- in particular how we get America and Europe working again together as partners and not as rivals," Blair said. The snap war summit would also "assess the best way of dealing with the humanitarian crisis in Iraq... how we rebuild Iraq post-Saddam, and also, of course, our approach to the Middle East peace process." Blair has been Bush's staunchest ally in the showdown with Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) over weapons of mass destruction, sending 45,000 soldiers, sailors and airmen, 120 tanks, a naval task force and 100-plus warplanes to join the US-led war. Opposition among Britons to war clearly appeared to be waning on day six of the fighting, with a poll in the Guardian newspaper Tuesday suggesting that 54 percent approved of a military attack to oust Saddam. On February 14, the figure had been 52 percent against. Britain suffered its second known combat fatality Monday when a member of Scotland's famed Black Watch regiment was killed in fighting near al-Zubayr, southwest of Basra. The first British soldier to die, a member of the Royal Tank Regiment, was killed in the same area Sunday, and two remain listed as missing. Fourteen other Britons died in two helicopter accidents, and two airmen perished when their Tornado bomber was hit by a US missile. Coalition commanders say Iraqi "irregulars" loyal to Saddam have been resisting British forces around Basra, but Blair insisted Tuesday that, overall, the invasion is going to plan. "It's precisely what you'd expect... These people are going to fight," he said, adding: "We have the forces that we need to do the job." In his first press conference since Bush launched the war Thursday with a volley of air strikes, Blair pledged that, unlike in the 1991 war to free Kuwait, the US-led coalition would not let the Iraqi people down. "My message to them is that this time we will not let you down. Saddam and his regime will be removed. Iraq will have a better future," the prime minsiter said. Warning the British people that the war is far from over, Blair said US, British and other forces would face "resistance all the way to the end of this campaign." "It will take time and perseverance and the continuing skill and dedication and professionalism of our armed forces to break it down," he said. Last Updated: Tuesday, 25 March, 2003, 17:54 GMT Email this to a friend Printable version Blair promises to back Iraqi people Tony Blair to meet George Bush Tony Blair has promised the Iraqi people that US-led coalition forces "will not let you down" as UK troops began firing in support of an apparent uprising in Basra. At his monthly news conference ahead of the assault on troop positions in the southern Iraqi city, Mr Blair said the military campaign had already achieved a "huge amount". He pledged: "Saddam Hussein and his regime will be removed. Iraq will have a better future ahead of it." Mr Blair said the Iraqi people were wary of rising up against Saddam Hussein's regime after the failure to remove the dictator following the Gulf War in 1991. He was speaking after fierce resistance from paramilitaries in Basra claimed a second British soldier's life. And coalition forces continued to advance on Baghdad - although delayed by fierce sandstorms - where they were expecting to meet extremely strong military opposition. Mr Blair also confirmed that he will fly to meet US President George Bush on Wednesday. The prime minister's spokesman said the discussions would centre on Iraq post-Saddam rather than on military strategy which had already been decided. Mr Blair is also due to hold talks with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on Thursday. Early reports indicated that Iraqi forces had destroyed some pieces of U.S. ground equipment, but there were no immediate reports of any U.S. casualties. Pentagon officials said, however, that early indications suggested U.S. forces had killed 300 to 500 Iraqis in the battle. Further details were not available. Coalition forces had been in a holding pattern near Baghdad as a fierce, blinding sandstorm whipped the nation. U.S. military officials said earlier in the day they expected major confrontations in the days to come, when coalition troops encounter Iraq's elite Republican Guard Divisions guarding the Iraqi capital. "We think the toughest fighting is ahead of us," said Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Richard Myers on ABCNEWS' Good Morning America today. "And we have known that all along and are we are preparing for that." A Pentagon spokeswoman said U.S. forces were within 50 miles of Baghdad. In all, more than 180,000 U.S. troops are now inside Iraq and pushing toward the Iraqi capital, ABCNEWS' John McWethy said. Before the sandstorms began rolling in late Monday, the United States had intensified air attacks on what officials say could be as many as 70,000 Iraqi troops spread across a 100-mile front south of Baghdad. Ninety percent of the allied air missions between Sunday and Monday had concentrated on these troops, their armored personnel carriers and their tanks, sources told McWethy. Sandstorm Causes Trouble Throughout the day, the monster sandstorm slowed coalition forces, but U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Victor Renuart earlier in the day maintained that military operations were proceeding apace. "It's a little bit ugly out there today," he told reporters at Central Command Headquarters in Qatar. But while the weather had affected battlefield operations, Renuart said coalition forces were expected to make a total of 1,400 air sorties targeting Republican Guard positions in and around Baghdad today. "The bottom line is that we are on track," he said. Renuart said U.S. airstrikes had destroyed six Iraqi jamming systems designed to interfere with global positioning system signals to guided munitions, which Iraq had "procured from another nation." The jamming systems have been a major pressure point between Washington and Moscow in recent days, when the Bush administration announced that it had "credible evidence" that Russian companies had sold military equipment such as the jamming devices, anti-tank missiles and night-vision goggles to Iraq. Russian President Vladimir Putin, however, has strongly denied the claims that Russian firms have sold military equipment to Iraq. But while the alleged arms sale threatens to turn into a major diplomatic row, Renuart said the jamming devices posed no threat to the coalition assault on Iraq. "I'm happy to report that we have destroyed all six of those jammers in the last two nights' airstrikes," said Renuart. "I am also pleased to say they had no effect on us." News of the destruction of the jamming devices came as President Bush today urged Congress to approve his request for $74.7 billion to fund the war. Bush's request — which was made in a speech to top officers at the Pentagon — followed a briefing from Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. Awaiting Aid — And an Uprising — in Basra There were conflicting reports of a popular uprising against Saddam's forces in the predominantly Shiite southern Iraqi city of Basra today. Coalition ground forces are about 50 miles outside Baghdad. (Maps.com/ABCNEWS.com) Western reporters based near Iraq's second largest city described scenes of residents taking to the streets and rampaging through areas believed to be populated by Saddam's Baath Party loyalists. Reporting from Basra, BBC pool reporter Ben Brown said British troops in the area had been banking on an uprising in the strategic southern city as aid workers have been warning about an impending humanitarian aid crisis in the area. Aid agencies say food, water and emergency supplies are low in Basra, but continued fighting around the city and in southern Iraq has prevented relief from arriving via the Persian Gulf. British troops have taken over responsibility for southern Iraq as U.S. forces continued to advance toward Baghdad. British military officials however have been unable to confirm reports of any popular uprising in Basra. Iraq's Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf told the al Jazeera television network the reports were incorrect. At a news briefing in Kuwait today, British military spokesman Chris Vernon said British troops would "help [an uprising] every which way we can." According to ABCNEWS military analyst Tony Cordesman, a popular Iraqi uprising against Saddam's regime would add immense symbolic value to the military campaign in Iraq, especially in the Arab world, where the war is viewed as a western occupation. But Cordesman also cautioned that if a southern Iraqi uprising failed, British troops would have to enter Basra, thereby increasing the chances of coalition forces being drawn into intensive urban warfare. According to U.S. military sources, counterinsurgency fighters from the Fedayeen Saddam, an Iraqi paramilitary group, has been intimidating the local population in Basra and preventing them from revolting against the regime. Military officials say U.S. ground troops are in a fierce battle with Iraqi forces near Najaf. Early reports say hundreds of Iraqis killed. There are reports of an uprising against Saddam Hussein in the southern Iraqi city of Basra. Iraq's information minister denies the reports. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says 3,500 Iraqi soldiers have been taken prisoner and thousands more have deserted. President Bush asks Congress for $74.7 billion to pay for six months of combat and vows victory for the United States. A fierce sandstorm slows U.S. troops' march to Baghdad. An Iraqi Defense Ministry spokesman says his troops have destroyed several enemy tanks around Iraq, including one U.S. tank and its crew . Reporting from Baghdad today, ABCNEWS' Richard Engel said visibility in the city was low due to the severity of the sandstorms and the fact that the Iraqis had relit defensive fires around the city. U.S. military forces believe the Iraqis have been setting fire to trenches around Baghdad filled with oil in an effort to hamper coalition airstrikes. But the mood in the capital city was oddly calm, said Engel, as stores opened in the main shopping areas. When weather permitted, the air attacks on Republican Guard lines continued, ABCNEWS' Tim Scheld in Qatar reported. Explosions could be heard around Baghdad today, as well as the northern cities of Mosul and Kirkuk. Officials said cruise missiles launched from warships are not affected by the weather. Casualties on Both Sides Mount Six days into the ground offensive in Iraq, U.S. military officials say the overall campaign has been going well despite coalition encounters with pockets of Iraqi resistance. But the casualties on both sides have been mounting. As many as 27 Americans have died since hostilities broke out — including 10 non-combat deaths — with 18 deaths confirmed by the Pentagon. Two British soldiers were killed in a friendly fire incident Monday night outside Basra, a British military spokesman said today. Iraqi officials today said 16 civilians were killed and 95 others were wounded in the past 24 hours. But there were no overall Iraqi casualty figures available. A U.S. commander with the 3rd Infantry Division today estimated that about 500 Iraqis have been killed in the last two days by the 3rd Infantry Division's tanks and mechanized units as they swept through southern Iraq. Speaking at a news briefing in Baghdad today, Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf said Iraq had killed eight "invaders," destroyed three armored personnel carriers and downed three U.S. helicopters. It was unclear if this included previously reported actions. But a Central Command spokesman today said he could only confirm reports of one downed helicopter — a U.S. Apache helicopter that went down south of Baghdad on Monday. He added that there were no reports of any downed coalition helicopters today. The Pentagon could not confirm Iraqi claims that eight coalition troops were killed. Targeting Iraq's Medina Division As the coalition ground forces edged closer to Baghdad in recent days, attention has been focused on the Medina Division of the elite Republican Guard defending the route to Baghdad. Braving the fierce sandstorms with the 3rd Infantry Division near Karbala, about 60 miles south of Baghdad today, ABCNEWS' Ted Koppel said senior officers in the division were on a mission to destroy the Medina Division and were hoping it would create "a crack" in the Baath Party foundation. It would be the first test, Koppel said, of how they do against some of Saddam's better-equipped and better-trained forces. In recent days, the Medina Division has been the target of coalition airstrikes ahead of a ground advance into Baghdad, Myers told Good Morning America today. "You saw some of that the other night with the Apaches as they were working on the Medina Division south of Baghdad," he said. "You'll continue to see that with air, helicopters, artillery and we'll proceed on." Near the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriya — the site of some major Iraqi resistance in recent days — ABCNEWS' John Berman, embedded with the First Expeditionary Force, said fighting was severe as coalition troops encountered Iraqi paramilitary groups armed with light weapons and grenades. Farther south, British troops today halted the advance of the Iraqi tanks seeking to press southward from the edge of Basra, a British naval commander told Reuters today. British troops have taken over responsibility for southern Iraq as U.S. forces have been advancing toward Baghdad. U.S. military sources said they have been anticipating major battles near Karbala, a Shiite holy city, and the city of Al Kut. And U.S. special forces have been flown into northern Iraq in recent days and have been fighting militants from the Ansar al-Islam, which Washington says has al Qaeda links. There also were reports that counterinsurgency fighters, the Fedayeen, were preventing some Iraqi troops from surrendering and intimidating Iraqis into fighting for Saddam. And multiple intelligence reports show that some Fedayeen members have been wearing U.S.-type army fatigues, coming into villages and executing locals who refuse to join them in guerrilla fighting, a senior administration official told McWethy. Tough Tests Ahead Military analysts say the toughest tests for U.S.-led forces may be in front of them. "Iraq has 26 divisions," ABCNEWS military analyst Tony Cordesman said. "We have encountered two, one of which virtually surrendered, and elements of another. And we're entering a whole different world as we advance north of Karbala and into Al Kut. "There are many small towns that Iraqi troops can hide in," Cordesman added. "We tend to forget that while we can often spot tanks or major armored vehicles, towed artillery is much harder to find. Infantry can be moved by ordinary vehicles. It can infiltrate into these areas. The Republican Guard are certainly a problem. So is regular infantry." On top of that, Mother Nature may get in the way over the next several days in the form of sandstorms. A Pentagon spokeswoman said sandstorms impact the military's ability to provide close air support for ground troops and targeting by air. And Cordesman said sandstorms and rain can be a problem for high-tech U.S. gear. "When you are dealing with these kinds of winds, with debris, with all the problems of rain — which oddly enough can be a problem here — it's a problem for night vision devices," Cordesman said. "It's a problem for lights or illuminators. It's a problem for forces that have to pause and regroup." Early reports indicated that Iraqi forces had destroyed some pieces of U.S. ground equipment, but there were no immediate reports of any U.S. casualties. Pentagon officials said, however, that early indications suggested U.S. forces had killed 300 to 500 Iraqis in the battle. Further details were not available.

US warplanes launch strikes at seven locations in southern Iraq Wed Mar 19, 5:29 PM ET WASHINGTON (AFP) - The United States and Britain conducted wide-ranging air strikes in southern and western Iraq (news - web sites), bombing long-range artillery and a surface-to-surface missile system that threatened coalition forces poised to invade the country from Kuwait, officials said. AFP Photo The warplanes struck at least seven locations over a 10 hour period as the clock ran on a US deadline for Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) and his two sons to leave the country or face war. US and British officials said the strikes were within the scope of normal enforcement of a no-fly zone over southern Iraq, and the US Central Command said they were launched in response to Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery fire. But the strikes targeted 10 artillery systems that had been moved last week into range of US and British forces massing in Kuwait for a ground offensive as well as a surface-to-surface missile system, a US defense official said. The Central Command said long range artillery were struck at Az Zubayr and in the Al Faw peninsula, and a surface-to surface missile system near Basra. Warplanes also bombed a traffic control radar near Basra and communications sites near Ash Shuaybah, Mydaysis and Ruwayshid in southern Iraq. "The artillery was struck because they were a danger to coalition ground troops in Kuwait," the command said. "The air traffic control radar was used to direct Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery fire at coalition aircraft." In western Iraq, they targeted a radar and an air defense command center near the H-3 airfield that defends the approaches to Baghdad from Jordan, the command said. "The coalition executed today's strikes after Iraqi forces fired anti-aircraft artillery at coalition aircraft patrolling the southern no-fly zone south of the 33rd parallel in Iraq," the command said. In London, a spokeswoman for the British Defence Ministry said, "We are flying over southern Iraq. This evening we are targeting systems which are a threat to our forces." "We have been doing this for the last 10 years. It's the same as we've been doing, but obviously the time is perhaps more relevant," the official said. Currid, Cheryl.(1997).

A TECHNOLOGY PLAN 

Last Updated March 21st, 2003! 


JESSIE MOSES BSc., Ed.Dip., MSc-Computers in Education(Author and Publisher)Copyright (c) 2002 
March 21 — Allied forces are now in control of the oil fields of southern Iraq and are bringing in contractors to extinguish fires burning at seven oil wells, Pentagon officials told NBC News on Friday. • eDiets Diet Center • Shop at B&N.com • Loan Center • Yellow Pages • Newsletters • MSN Broadband • In the battle zone • Iraq interactive library • Targets in Iraq • Target Baghdad • Urban warfare • Allied deployments • The 1991 oil fires • Tools of warfare • Scuds and Arrows • World Reax • NBC: Video reports from the field • Complete coverage: Conflict with Iraq EARLIER, BRITISH military officials scaled back their estimate of the number of oil wells burning in southern Iraq, saying that only seven wells were ablaze — not the 30 reported earlier. The report of seven wells burning matched the number being reported by the Pentagon. The update came from British Adm. Sir Michael Boyce, chief of defense staff, at a briefing in London. The reason for the rollback from the earlier estimate was not clear. The allies say that Iraqi forces set fire to the wells as the invasion began, but Iraqi state television broadcast a report early Saturday saying that troops had set oil-filled trenches — not wells — ablaze in an effort to prevent U.S. and British warplanes from finding their targets. “The leadership in Iraq and the government organizations are keen to preserve this wealth, developing and expanding its capability and not burning it,” the television station said in a statement attributed to an “authorized source.” 400 OIL WELLS IN AREA U.S. and British officials were pleased that the number of wells on fire was a small percentage of the 400 wells in the area near Basra. “Put into context, that’s perhaps not as bad as we might have feared,” British Defense Secretary Geoff Hoon said earlier Friday. The oil fields of southern Iraq pump about half of the country’s daily output of 2.5 million barrels. A British military spokesman said the fires were set by Iraq. “Several of the oil heads have been set on fire by (Iraqi President) Saddam Hussein’s forces in an attempt to deflect us from the task,” Capt. Al Lockwood told Reuters. Another British spokesman, Col. Chris Vernon, told Reuters that “U.S. Marines are moving well into the ... oil fields, and it seems like we will be able to seize much of the oil structure intact.” The picture in northern Iraq was less clear amid unconfirmed reports that U.S. special operations forces had secured the giant oil fields around Kirkuk, the biggest of Iraq’s 15 operational fields. A U.S. official said earlier this month that Iraq had placed explosives at the Kirkuk fields to prevent their being captured in the event of a U.S. invasion. An arrow points to smoke plumes seen in an image taken Thursday by a U.S. satellite. The plumes are consistent with oil fires detected from space before, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said. MARKETS HAPPY Oil markets seemed to take comfort from the speed of the U.S.-British advance and shrugged off the news of the well fires. The lack of an impact from the war on oil shipments from Kuwait also inspired confidence. Kuwait’s state-run radio said Kuwaiti ports were operating normally Friday, and an oil industry source said crude shipments from Kuwaiti oil terminals were continuing without interruption. The Pentagon has said it would try to secure Iraq’s oil fields quickly to prevent Iraqi forces from damaging the country’s 1,685 wells. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Saddam uses oil as weapon in 1991 1 / 6 Oil as a weapon Jan. 15, 1991 - In the lead up to the Gulf War, military analysts considered how Saddam Hussein might use oil to thwart coalition air strikes, clog desalination plants in the Gulf and disrupt Kuwaiti oil production for years to come. 

A trip into hell March 16, 1991 - In the Kuwaiti desert 500 oil wells burn out of control. Coping with land mines and the spectacular sights, sounds and searing heat of roaring fires, teams of well control experts struggle to control the blazes. NBC's Bill Lagatuta reports. 

Gushers and blazes March 26, 1991 - The Wild Well Control team from Texas began trying to cap a gushing oil well, but not enough water and equipment had yet arrived to wrestle the blazing fires. NBC's Deborah Roberts reports. 4 / 6 Still a prisoner of Saddam March 21, 1991 - Burning petroleum containing high levels of sulphur and lead poisoned the air, while a slick larger than the world had ever seen blackened the waters; a health and environmental nightmare. NBC's Deborah Roberts reports. 

HISTORY IN THE MAKING!

In 1991, Iraqi troops destroyed more than 700 well heads in Kuwait, turning its oil fields into a desert inferno that took seven months to extinguish. When Iraqi troops retreated from Kuwait in February 1991, they attached plastic explosives to well heads and piled sandbags against them to direct the force of the explosions for maximum effect. The result was geysers of burning crude at 603 wells, serious damage at more than 100 others and widespread environmental degradation. Teams of firefighters from the United States, Canada and eight other countries worked from April until November to put out the fires. Most of the teams used seawater pumped through Kuwait’s empty oil pipelines to battle the fires. The heat was so intense, at more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, that water sometimes continued boiling on the ground for two days afterward, said Mark Badick of Safety Boss, Inc. “We’ve had fire helmets melt on our heads,” said Badick, whose Calgary-based firm put out 180 of the Kuwaiti well fires. • How to douse an oil well fire Firefighters from Hungary had a different technique, using two jet engines mounted horizontally on a tank chassis — a homemade vehicle they called “Big Wind” — to blast flame-retardant foam at the fires. It took Kuwait more than two years and $50 billion to restore its oil output to prewar levels. If Iraq sabotaged its oil fields, any cleanup could take far longer and cost much more. 

12 YEARS OF SANCTIONS Iraq’s fields and pipelines are badly run down after 12 years of U.N. economic sanctions. Its fields are also much farther from the sea than those in Kuwait, meaning a ready source of water might not be so easily available. 

• Who'll cap the well fires? • Pollution industry on standby • Profile of Boots & Coots • Pentagon taps Halliburton Destruction could be especially bad if Iraqis set off explosives underground, deep within the well shafts themselves. If that happened, firefighters would have to drill a new “relief well” and pump a mixture of sand, gel and mud into each damaged shaft to try to plug it up and stop the blowout. “It’s a long, arduous process,” Badick said. Whereas he and his crews put out as many as five fires a day in Kuwait, cleaning up after a single underground explosion can take two months.

THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH...AMERICA AT WAR AGAINST TERROR! 
Iraq reels under air assault United States and British forces have pounded Baghdad with hundreds of bombs and missiles in a major escalation of the war. 


On Saturday, new raids targeted buildings on the outskirts of the city and anti-aircraft fire lit up the sky. Earlier, huge explosions rocked the heart of the Iraqi capital, as the US unleashed what it calls its "shock and awe" strategy. In southern Iraq, an entire division of the Iraqi army surrendered to coalition forces, Pentagon officials said. Iraq's 51st Infantry Division surrendered to US marines who were advancing toward Basra, Iraq's second largest city. Officials in Washington said it was a sign that the Iraqi regime was crumbling. Map showing the advance into southern Iraq Meanwhile, in the north Turkish troops were reported to have crossed into Iraq - despite Washington's disapproval of such a move. It came soon after Turkey agreed to open its airspace to US warplanes. US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said the scale of the assault on Baghdad was intended to show the Iraqis that Saddam Hussein was finished. "The [Iraqi] regime is starting to lose control of their country," he said. A US commander said 320 Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired in the assault. Regime symbols hit The BBC's Paul Wood in Baghdad says the targets there included President Saddam Hussein's palaces. Offices of the Foreign Ministry and the Deputy Prime Minister were also ablaze. Air strikes have also hit the city of Mosul in the north. The BBC's John Simpson, reporting from the region, said the skyline was lit up many times. Several explosions have also been reported in another northern city, Kirkuk, where American forces are trying to secure control of vast oilfields. As the bombardment continued, Iraqi Defence Minister Sultan Hashim Ahmed told a news conference that "no force in the world" would conquer Iraq, the AFP news agency reports. Port 'taken' US-led ground forces have advanced about 160 kilometres (100 miles) into Iraq, the chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, General Richard Myers, told a news conference in Washington. IRAQ CAMPAIGN Why Basra matters Coalition forces are also moving on Basra, according to the UK Ministry of Defence. The advance on the city came after US Marines reached Iraq's only deep-water port at Umm Qasr in the south-east. "Umm Qasr has been overwhelmed by the US Marines and now is in coalition hands," Admiral Sir Michael Boyce, chief of the UK General Staff, told a news conference in London. However, the BBC's Adam Mynott, who is with the troops on the ground, says that while coalition forces undoubtedly have the upper hand, they do not have total control of Umm Qasr. The port in the south-east is seen as key for the importing of aid for the Iraqi civilian population. The US 3rd Infantry Division has moved into the centre of Iraq, close to the city of Nasiriya - a key crossing point over the Euphrates river on the way to Baghdad. The BBC's Gavin Hewitt says there have been some clashes between American forces and Iraqi forces followed by quite a strong American bombardment of the area around the city, he says. In other reported advances, US defence officials said key airfields known as H2 and H3 in western Iraq were taken over by coalition forces. The BBC's defence correspondent, Jonathan Marcus, says these are possible jumping-off points for a multi-pronged assault on Baghdad. Earlier on Friday, British troops took control of key oil installations on the nearby al-Faw peninsula after a brief firefight - an operation designed to prevent the release of oil into the Gulf by retreating Iraqi forces. But Admiral Boyce said that elsewhere in Iraq seven oil wells had been set alight by Iraqi forces, down from an earlier estimate of 30. In other developments: Saddam Hussein decrees that any Iraqi who captures an enemy soldier will get a reward of about $32,000, Iraq's government-run news agency reports. The reward for killing an enemy soldier was put at about $16,000.

Within a few hours of crossing into southern Iraq, the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit encountered 200 or more Iraqi troops seeking to surrender. THE SURRENDER of Iraq’s 51st Infantry Division came as coalition forces advanced toward Basra, Iraq’s second-largest city. The mechanized division had about 200 tanks before the war, according to independent analysts and U.S. officials. The 51st was one of the better equipped and trained in Iraq’s regular army forces and was the key division protecting Basra, a major transportation and oil shipment hub on the Shatt al-Arab waterway that leads to the Persian Gulf. That led to optimism among allied commanders that the city would soon fall. But elsewhere, smaller groups of Iraqi soldiers were abandoning their vehicles and trenches to surrender to onrushing U.S. and British troops. TROOPS ARE ILL-EQUIPPED The soldiers who were giving up are not the fabled and well-fed Republican Guardsmen who anchor Saddam Hussein’s defense. These are members of a rag-tag army, many of them draftees, often in T-shirts. Their handguns and small arms could accomplish little against opposing forces wielding 21st century weaponry. • Complete MSNBC coverage • Psyops used against Iraqis • Lead role for elite forces • Kurds brace for backlash • Top defector disappears • Dispatches from the field • Video coverage from NBC • Blog: Army family's journal • Encarta: Detailed Iraq map • WashPost: Special coverage LATEST FROM NEWSWEEK • Special war section • Q&A on smart weapons Who Will Try Iraqi War Criminals? By Ed Finn Posted Wednesday, March 19, 2003, at 3:19 PM PT In his speech to the nation Monday, President Bush promised that Iraqi war criminals would be tried and punished—but he didn't specify which criminals or in which court they would be tried. Which Iraqis will be tried, and who will judge them? The answers depend largely on the outcome of the war, once it's clear who's still alive to stand trial. Most experts agree that war-crimes trials will be limited to indictments against a small fraction of the thousands of likely suspects, since wiping out Iraq's government infrastructure (on top of its economic and military infrastructure) will make it that much harder to build a new state. In fact, the U.S. government has kept its official list of Iraqi war criminals extremely short, even though hundreds of officials have been implicated in the use of chemical weapons against Iraqi Kurds in 1988. It's likely that only the top echelons of the military will be tried—perhaps 50 people, perhaps more, depending on who you ask and whether or not local commanders fight. (If they surrender, they might escape prosecution.) For the invading Americans, "who" is tried is almost less important than "how," because these trials give the United States a much-needed chance to exhibit fairness and restraint after initiating a war. Possible trial venues include: International Criminal Court: This one can probably be ruled out—neither the U.S. nor Iraq ever agreed to it. Ironically, it might be legally possible to try British or Australian troops in the ICC for war crimes if they commit any atrocities, since their nations are signatories. U.N. ad hoc tribunal: This is a special international court that has to be mandated by the Security Council—recent examples include courts created to try war criminals from the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. Considering the intense misgivings fellow Security Council members like France and Russia have about the war, it is unlikely that the United States will ask them to create a tribunal. And even if they did, there's another snag if the blue helmets show up—no U.N. court can sentence a war criminal to death. U.S. federal courts: Under the War Crimes Act of 1996, war crimes by or against U.S. citizens can be prosecuted in American federal courts. This option also seems unlikely, however, because many of the crimes likely to be prosecuted involve Iraqi officials assaulting their own citizens. Local Iraqi courts: These might do for small-fry Baath loyalists. After all, the United States will be trying to create a respectable criminal justice system in Iraq, and war criminals would provide useful fodder to get things rolling. But it's unlikely that any of the regime's kingpins would face a local court, since there would be too many opportunities for political skullduggery and old allegiances to taint the process. Hybrid courts: All the rage since their success in Sierra Leone, hybrid courts bring together a combination of local and international jurists. The idea is to mix the grass-roots appeal of civil courts with the respectability and fence-mending powers of international courts. This option also allows the United States to involve European jurists without having to go through the United Nations. The flexibility of a hybrid court will be attractive to post-Iraq planners not because of its appeal to international justice but because it will allow the United States to better trade amnesty for information while still satisfying world opinion. Say the United States invades Iraq and raids all the bunkers and palaces but doesn't find weapons of mass destruction or Saddam Hussein. In that case, the post-war administration's first priority will be to pump Iraq's surviving officials for information—a process that could carry over to war crimes courts. If you're wondering what war crimes are, Explainer has covered this before. Next question?

DISPUTE OVER PORT There were conflicting accounts over the fate of Umm Qasr, 20 miles south of Basra and the main city in the narrow strip of Iraqi territory that gives access to the Persian Gulf. A Reuters reporter Adrian Croft said U.S. Marines raised the Stars and Stripes flag over the new port Friday but that the old city, about a mile away, remained in Iraqi hands. Separately, a British military spokesman said 250 Iraqi soldiers had surrendered to the U.S. 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit in the city. Capturing the city would give the coalition forces an important access point for supplies into Iraq. In this image taken from television, unidentified Iraqis surrender to a British Royal Marine in southern Iraq on Friday. In Baghdad, Interior Minister Mahmoud Diab al-Ahmed described the report of the city’s downfall as “silly talk.” “Umm Qasr is an Iraqi port and is going to remain an Iraqi port,” he told a news conference at which he was decked out in military fatigues. Raising his rifle above his shoulder and pointing at the ceiling, he said, “It will be hard for them to take it.” 

Some targets in the sights of bomber and missile crews. 

THE ROAD TO BASRA Elsewhere in southern Iraq, First Marine Division needed air support to suppress Iraqi mortar and small arms fire while seizing Route 80, which leads from Kuwait to Basra. “Every now and then they pop off to let us know they’re still there,” Lt. Col. Steve Holmes, a Marine in charge of clearing berms for troops and armor to enter Iraq. Supported by Cobra attack helicopters and howitzers, Marine tanks and armored vehicles rolled down Route 80 through the demilitarized zone between Kuwait and Iraq. Tanks were placed on berms to provide cover for Marines moving on the road. Until then, the Marines had taken side roads. Route 80 allowed a faster approach to Basra itself, and hundreds of Marine vehicles moved up it into Iraq. The Marines had encountered resistance in the area for several hours Friday morning after moving to attack the nearby town of Safwan, which fell within hours. The military continued to broadcast warnings to civilians in the area on loudspeakers to stay indoors and urging Iraqi troops to surrender. On the Kuwait side, Marines in a sandbagged watchtower directed mortar fire at the Iraq side, where U.S. troops have watched the Iraqis, who appeared to be either digging defensive positions or setting land mines. “We’ll find out soon enough,” Holmes said.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair said Friday the military campaign seemed to have started well, but he cautioned against expectations of immediate victory. “Our forces will face resistance and the campaign, necessarily, will not achieve all its objectives overnight,” Blair told a news conference. At the Central Command in the gulf nation of Qatar, the main spokesman for the British forces also adopted a confident tone, telling reporters that he expected forces to reach Baghdad in less than a week, “If I were a betting man, which I’m not — hopefully in the next three or four days,” Capt. Al Lockwood said. Meantime, on board the USS Abraham Lincoln in the gulf, Rear Admiral John Kelly predicted a speedy victory. “I think that the folks on the ground realize that their time is up and that we’re coming ...So their efforts to counter it have increased,” he said. people can do is to try to protect civilians here.” He said at least five American human shields are elsewhere in Iraq. 
SURRENDER TALKS? After the first two days of airstrikes, Pentagon officials said serious cracks in the Iraqi regime had led to secret surrender talks with Iraqi military leaders.

The Iraqis were being told that they could avoid all-out war if they took out Saddam themselves, Rumsfeld said. “There are communications in every conceivable mode and method, public and private, to the Iraqi forces that they can act with honor and turn over their weapons and walk away from them and they will not be hurt,” Rumsfeld told reporters Thursday night in Washington. SADDAM’S FATE Two days after the start of the U.S.-led war on Baghdad, the whereabouts of Saddam Hussein remained a mystery. U.S. officials had suggested he might have been killed or injured in the opening foray of the conflict, a strike of a building in the Iraqi capital where the president and his inner circle were believed to be meeting. On Friday, Iraq’s information minister acknowledged that one of Saddam’s homes was hit in the U.S. bombardment, but said no one was hurt. “They rocketed the residence of his household,” Mohammed Sa’eed al-Sahhaf said at a news conference. “But thank God, they are all safe.” Al-Sahhaf lashed out at the “criminal George Bush and his gang.” 

“They are superpower of villains. They are superpower of Al Capone,” he said. “We will not allow them to get out of this quagmire which we trapped them in. They will see their end there.” 

A semblance of normalcy returned to Baghdad after Thursday night’s bombing. There was a great deal of traffic on the streets, many shops were open and many people were out on the street. But there was still a heavy security presence, including armed members of the ruling Baath Party, security forces and police, and pickup trucks mounted with heavy machine guns. The official Iraqi News Agency said 37 people were injured in Thursday night’s raid at heart of Baghdad and in other locations in and around the city. 

Sahhaf also denied any U.S.-led advance into Iraq and argued that TV images of Iraqis surrendering were fabricated. “Those are not Iraqi soldiers at all,” he said. “Where did they bring them from?” Al-Sahhaf suggested that any captured U.S. and British soldiers may not be treated as prisoners of war under the Geneva Conventions. Al-Sahhaf said Iraq was considering how to treat them. “Those are mercenaries. Most probably they will be treated as mercenaries, hirelings and as war criminals. ... For sure, international law does not apply to those,” he said. 

A busload of journalists was taken to the main Al-Douri power plant, which was damaged in the 1991 Gulf War, where at least 12 human shields from Switzerland, Turkey, France and the United States are staying. 









font-size: 4pt; color: white; font-weight: bold;} U.S. May Use 'E-Bomb' During Iraq War Wed Mar 19, 4:21 PM ET By MATT CRENSON, AP National Writer U.S. forces may use a new "e-bomb" during the expected invasion of Iraq (news - web sites) as part of a 21st century blitzkrieg designed to render Saddam Hussein (news - web sites)'s forces blind, deaf, dumb and incapable of retaliation. The highly classified bomb creates a brief pulse of microwaves powerful enough to fry computers, blind radar, silence radios, trigger crippling power outages and disable the electronic ignitions in vehicles and aircraft. "They would be useful against any adversary that is dependent on electronic systems," said Loren Thompson, a defense analyst at the Lexington Institute, a think-tank based in Arlington, Va. In modern warfare, electronics undergird virtually every weapon more sophisticated than a rifle or hand grenade. For that reason, Air Force scientists have worked for decades on a practical way of producing powerful but brief pulses of microwaves that can incapacitate electronic equipment without damaging buildings or harming people. Officially, the Pentagon (news - web sites) does not acknowledge the weapon's existence. Asked about it at a March 5 Pentagon news conference, Gen. Tommy Franks said: "I can't talk to you about that because I don't know anything about it." However, military analysts say a number of unclassified documents suggest such a device is ready for the battlefield. "There's been a lot of discussion behind closed doors in the Pentagon and in the trade press that these things are now being tested," Thompson said. According to a 2000 report by Air Force Col. Elaine M. Walling, scientists at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico have created microwave sources that generate up to 10 times the amount of energy that Hoover Dam produces in a day. Such powerful pulses can incapacitate electronic equipment without damaging buildings or harming people, making them an attractive weapon whenever civilian casualties are a concern. In laboratory tests, microwave pulses can melt silicon chips, pushing their circuits far beyond their capacity to conduct electricity. But on the battlefield, even the most impressive e-bomb's effects rapidly diminish with distance. Although e-bombs' capabilities are classified, military analysts believe their range is a few hundred yards at most. That relatively short range decreases the odds that hospitals, orphanages and other civilian infrastructure will be affected, unless they are directly adjacent to or networked with military targets. "I think it is almost always more humane to use this compared to a conventional weapon," Thompson said. The bombs' effects are also hard to predict, analysts say. The surge of electricity produced by a microwave pulse could go directly to the nearest bank of military supercomputers, or it could just as easily be shunted harmlessly into the ground. "The effects are hard to focus. The moment the energy is absorbed into wiring or other electrically conductive material you don't know where it's going to go," Thompson said. Those uncertainties and others may prevent e-bombs from playing a major role in the anticipated U.S. offensive against Iraq, said Lt. Col. Piers Wood, a military analyst at the defense policy think-tank globalsecurity.org. "There will be a few commanders who will see these and get to try them out," Wood said. "We're not talking about arsenals of these things." Defense experts are particularly eager to see if e-bombs can reach into deep underground bunkers that could otherwise be neutralized only by tactical nuclear weapons. By shutting off the electricity, a microwave weapon could render a bunker uninhabitable by disabling lighting, security systems, ventilation and computers. Eventually, Wood said, other nations may acquire high power microwave weapons; American forces, which depend so heavily on technology, would be particularly vulnerable to them. He predicted that soon all military electronics will have to be protected from high power microwaves by metal casings, with sophisticated circuit breakers connected to any incoming wires.

TECHNOLOGY 



Information Technology can play a powerful role in redesigning and redirecting the organization. Most organizations need powerful information and communication systems. Knowledge and information are key ingredients in creating wealth. Information systems are needed to optimize the flow of information and knowledge within the organization. 

Issues discussed in this project are the information system tools and methods that organizations utilise to gain competitive advantages, adding values to their goods and services, increasing their effectiveness and efficiency in the realm of their activities. 



THE ORGANIZATION 



We cannot discuss the relationship between education and development without explicitly linking the structure of the educational system to the economic and social character of the Third World society in which it is contained. Educational systems more often than not reflect the essential nature of that society. 

Developing nations are confronted with two basic alternatives in their policy approaches to problems of education. They can continue automatically to expand formal systems at the fastest possible pace with perhaps some minor modifications in curricula, teaching methods, and examinations, while retaining the same institutional labor market structures and educational costing policies. Or they can attempt to reform the overall education system by modifying the conditions of demand for and supply of educational opportunities and by reorienting curricula in accordance with the real resource needs of the nation. 

The evidence leads to the conclusion that the first alternative is likely to exacerbate the problems of unemployment, poverty, inequality, rural stagnation, and international intellectual dominance that now define the conditions of underdevelopment in much of Asia, Africa, and Latin America and that the second alternative should therfore be pursued. 




CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT 





Teachers must maintain control of their class at all times. 
The expansion of educational opportunities at all levels has contributed to aggregate economic growth by (1) creating a class of educated leaders to fill vacancies left by departing expatriates or otherwise vacant positions in governmental services, public corporations, private businesses, and professions; and providing the kind of training and education that would promote literacy and basic skills while encouraging "modern" attitudes on the part of diverse segments of the population.

Iraqis Celebrate As U.S. Takes Baghdad 29 minutes ago By ELLEN KNICKMEYER and DAVID CRARY, Associated Press Writers BAGHDAD, Iraq - Saddam Hussein (news - web sites)'s rule over the capital has ended, U.S. commanders declared Wednesday, and jubilant crowds swarmed into the streets here, dancing, looting, cheering U.S. convoys and defacing images of the Iraqi leader. 



U.S. Marines helped bring down a giant statue of Saddam in a central square of Baghdad to the applause of Iraqis standing below. The statue toppled when a rope tied to it was hooked up to a military vehicle that backed away. Earlier, U.S. troops placed an American flag over the statue's face, but it was quickly removed. "The capital city is now one of those areas that has been added to the list of where the regime does not have control," said Brig. Gen. Vincent Brooks at U.S. Central Command in Qatar. Brooks said that Saddam loyalists were holding out in the north, notably at Saddam's hometown of Tikrit, and still posed a threat, including the possible use of weapons of mass destruction. Even as they encountered sniper fire from roving bands of holdout fighters, Marine and Army units swept through Baghdad, seizing or destroying buildings that once housed some of Saddam's most feared security forces. Marine tanks rolled into the heart of the city, on the east bank of the Tigris, greeted by people clapping and waving white flags. Civilians gestured to the Americans with V-for-victory signs. "We were nearly mobbed by people trying to shake our hands," said Maj. Andy Milburn of the 7th Marines. One Army contingent had to use razor-wire to hold back surging crowds of well-wishers. At police stations, universities, government ministries, the headquarters of the Iraq (news - web sites) Olympic Committee, looters unhindered by any police presence made off with computers, furniture, telephones, even military jeeps. One young man used roller skates to wheel away a refrigerator. "Thank you, thank you, Mr. Bush," some of the looters shouted. An elderly man beat a portrait of Saddam with his shoe, while a younger man spat on the portrait. Not everyone rejoiced. "This is the destruction of Islam," said Qassim al-Shamari, 50, a laborer wearing an Arab robe. "After all, Iraq is our country. And what about all the women and children who died in the bombing?" Even as most of the populace seemed suddenly to feel free of Saddam's control, U.S. officers said their forces faced continued resistance, fierce but disorganized, from small groups of holdout pro-Saddam fighters. The U.S Central Command reacted cautiously to the euphoria and chaos in Baghdad. "The regime has lost control in most parts of Iraq," said command spokesman Jim Wilkinson. "There are places up north where they have significant pockets ... so we'll continue to go where those pockets are and reduce them. It'll just take time to find those pockets and destroy them and hopefully they'll surrender." U.S. commanders focused attention on Tikrit, still a stronghold of loyalist troops, and the northern city of Mosul. Lt. Mark Kitchens, a Central Command spokesman, said special operations forces and airstrikes were "actively engaging" Iraqi forces in both cities. U.S. special forces and Kurdish fighters seized a strategic hilltop near Mosul; senior Kurdish leader Hoshyar Zebari called it the most important gain in the region thus far. 

The fate of Saddam remained unknown. U.S. experts have yet to gain access to the site in an upscale Baghdad neighborhood that was targeted by four 2,000-pound bombs in a U.S. strike aimed at killing him. 
Elsewhere in the capital, U.S. forces steadily expanded their reach, securing a military airport, capturing a prison, setting fire to a Republican Guard barracks. Milburn said the house of Saddam's son Odai was on fire, apparently hit by a bomb. 
The Iraqi government's efforts to sustain its public relations campaign collapsed. State television went off the air Tuesday, and on Wednesday, foreign journalists said their "minders" — government agents who monitor their reporting — did not turn up for work. There was no sign of Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, whose daily briefings had constituted the main public face of the regime during the war. 



While intent on consolidating their hold on Baghdad, U.S. commanders also were turning their attention to Tikrit, Saddam's hometown in the desert about 90 miles to the north. Defended by well-trained troops, and home to many of Saddam's most devoted followers, the city of 260,000 is considered one of the few remaining strongholds of the Iraqi regime. The Central Command said coalition airstrikes were targeting the Republican Guard's Adnan division in Tikrit, "shaping the battlefield" before U.S. ground forces move in. Brooks said Iraqi reinforcements were reaching Tikrit, apparently after retreating from positions to the north and south. The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, one of two main Iraqi Kurdish groups opposing Saddam, claimed Tuesday that Saddam already was hiding in Tikrit. U.S. officials said they didn't know if he had escaped Monday's bombing of a site in Baghdad's al-Mansour neighborhood where he and at least one of his sons reportedly were meeting. The toll of journalists killed in the war reached 10, with three killed in U.S. military strikes in Baghdad on Tuesday Two cameramen, one from Ukraine and one from Spain, were killed when a U.S. tank fired into the Palestine Hotel, where hundreds of journalists are based. U.S. officers initially said hostile fire had been coming from the building; journalists said they witnessed none. Also, a Jordanian reporter was killed in a U.S. airstrike on the Baghdad office of the Arab television network al-Jazeera, which contended the attack was deliberate. On Wednesday, the U.S. branch of Amnesty International joined in the criticism. "Unless the U.S. can demonstrate that the Palestine Hotel had been used for military purposes, it was a civilian object protected under international humanitarian law that should not have been attacked," Amnesty said. In the southern city of Basra, which was taken over by British forces this week, looters have been plundering government buildings, universities, even hospitals. A Red Cross representative said the looting could delay relief efforts in the city of 1.3 million.

March 24 — With advance elements of the American invasion force now engaging Iraqi Republican Guard units south of Baghdad, U.S. and British troops struggled on Monday to put down continued resistance in the southern part of the country. Officials on both sides insisted their forces had gained the upper hand, with Iraq highlighting American casualties and U.S. commanders dismissing Iraqi resistance as “sporadic.” British Prime Minister Tony Blair said the battle for Baghdad was imminent. “This will be a crucial moment,” he said. 











BLAIR, SPEAKING to his parliament, said: “As we speak, they are about 60 miles south of Baghdad, near Karbala. It is a little way from there that they will encounter the Medina Division of the Republican Guard. This will be a crucial moment.” 

With the U.S. Army’s 3rd infantry near Karbala, southwest of Baghdad, a pincer movement appeared to be forming, completed by the 1st Division of the U.S. Marines, which crossed the Euphrates late Sunday and were rolling north up the Tigris River valley, southeast of the Iraqi capital. An Associated Press correspondent embedded with the 3rd said the division had been stalled by a sandstorm in mid-afternoon after a morning battle in the U.S. troops directed air strikes on a column of Iraqi armor that officials say represented the outer-most ring of Baghdad’s defenses. At least one Army Cobra helicopter gunship was lost in this engagement, and the fate of the crew remained uncertain. 

The AP report described the road to Karbala as littered with destroyed Iraqi trucks and tracked vehicles, and by empty foxholes — many with bodies still inside, burned beyond recognition. Air strikes by U.S. and British aircraft targeted dug-in Iraqi defenses around Baghdad, and missiles and bombs continued to hit targets in Baghdad and other Iraqi cities. A fourth wave of air strikes hit the Iraqi capital at just about midnight local time — about 3 p.m. ET. 

U.S. and British commanders were taking pains to portray firefights over the weekend — primarily well behind the advancing American 1st Marine Division and 3rd Infantry — as predictable pockets of die-hard opposition that would not upset the allied timetable. “These moves are all dangerous to the troops in the field, but they’re not dangerous to the success of the mission,” Army Lt. Gen. John Abizaid told the AP from Central Command’s headquarters in Qatar. Abizaid’s boss, CENTCOM commander Gen. Tommy Franks, told reporters later that battles in the south, in which about 20 U.S. forces were killed or missing, were the result of ambushes and a fake surrender incidents by pro-Saddam militiamen known as fedayeen. 

“We know that the fedayeen has in fact put itself in a position to mill about, to create difficulties in rear areas, and I can assure you that contact with those forces is not unexpected,” he said. The combat death toll among U.S. forces remained unclear on Monday. In addition to the Marines killed Sunday, two Marines were killed Friday in southern Iraq and at least five members of an Army supply unit ambushed Sunday near Nasiriyah were believed to have been killed while five others appeared on Iraqi TV. Britain announced Monday that it suffered its first combat death when a soldier was killed near Al Zubayr, in southern Iraq. At least 14 other British troops have been killed in accidents or by “friendly fire” since the war began. Juliet Bremner, an ITN correspondent with British troops just north of Basra, said mortar fire and snipers have dogged efforts to subdue that southern port city. 

NBC News correspondent Dana Lewis, encamped with the 101st Airborne Division in Kuwait, said that the air assault units helicopters had been put into action on Monday to bolster allied positions in southern Iraq. Lewis said the division’s Blackhawks, Cobras and other aircraft were flying “convoy duty” along the long supply train between Kuwait and the lead elements of the invasion. 

BAGHDAD REGIME VOWS TO FIGHT There was no way to estimate Iraqi casualties reliably, either military or civilian. Iraq’s Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf said Monday that 62 Iraqis had been killed by U.S.-led forces in the previous 24 hours and more than 400 had been wounded. Al-Sahhaf said most of the losses were suffered in Babel, which is just south of Baghdad, and Basra. As the invasion force moved toward a climatic battle with Saddam’s most elite units, his regime vowed to put up a bloody defense of the capital. The most capable divisions in Iraq’s army now ring the city, and Saddam’s own Special Republican Guard division was said to be dug in at key points within Baghdad’s neighborhoods. “The Americans and British will be welcomed in Baghdad the same way they were welcomed in An Nasiriyah and Um Qasr — with bullets and not with music and flowers,” Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz told reporters in a Baghdad news conference. Early Monday, images of Saddam himself appeared on Iraqi television. Speaking before a white backdrop, he appeared relaxed and healthy — strikingly different from the way he looked in a speech aired Thursday, the day the air assault began. 



In full military dress, he assured Iraqis “victory will be ours soon,” and mentioned the defiant resistance of Iraqi forces in Umm Qasr, the southern port city which U.S. and British forces have struggled to gain since Saturday. The reference seemed designed to allay any suspicion that the address had been taped earlier, or that Saddam had been wounded or killed last week. U.S. officials quickly dismissed the idea that this proved Iraq remained under Saddam’s command, saying his references were vague enough to have been anticipated well before hand. “We don’t know when it was recorded, how old it may be, whether it was new,” White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said. Baghdad, like other Iraqi cities, continued to be hit by sporadic missile and aircraft bombardments. More explosions shook the capital Monday as night fell. Earlier, anti-aircraft guns that had been removed earlier were placed once again atop one of the main gates to the Old Palace, a presidential compound hit in earlier attacks. 



A TOUGH WEEKEND 

• Urban Warfare: The military's nightmare 



Well behind the advancing American spearhead, U.S. and British forces continued to struggle with Iraqi rear-guard elements who refused to give up. 

In one incident near Nasiriyah, a crossing point over the Euphrates River, a group of Iraqis waved a white flag in surrender, then opened up with artillery fire. Another group appeared to welcome coalition troops, then attacked them, U.S. officials said. 



As many as 10 Marines died and as many as 40 were wounded in the surprise engagements. Reuters reported that Marines remained bogged down Monday outside Nasiriyah, where they were attempting to open a second route north to the Iraqi capital. Resistance by Iraqi troops made it impossible for the allies to gain control of two bridges over the Euphrates. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 



A battle for bridges March 24 — Marines are trying to retake two bridges in the al Nasiriya region, and Navy medics are treating wounded Iraqi soldiers and civilians, reports Kerry Sanders with the 2d Battalion, 8th Marine Division. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

‘BAD DREAM’ In images shown on Iraqi television Sunday, five captured U.S. soldiers — four men and a woman — appeared frightened but resolute as they answered the questions of interrogators. Arab television also showed what it said were four American dead in an Iraqi morgue. “It’s like a bad dream, seeing your son get captured on TV,” said Anecita Hudson, of Alamogordo, N.M., whose son, Army Spc. Joseph Hudson, was among those captured. Another prisoner was identified by his family as Pfc. Patrick Miller of Park City, Kan., the father of two young children. Iraqi officials have offered repeated assurances that the prisoners would be treated humanely, according to the Geneva Conventions. President Bush, returning to the White House from Camp David on Sunday, demanded that the POWs be treated well. “We expect them to be treated humanely, just like we’ll treat any prisoners of theirs that we capture humanely. If not, the people who mistreat the prisoners will be treated as war criminals,” he said. 



ON ALL FRONTS Elsewhere, the U.S. military appeared to be preparing to open a new front in northern Iraq, ferrying an unknown number of troops to at airfields near Irbil and Sulamaniyah, facilities recently improved by the United States, U.S. and Turkish officials told NBC News. 







OTHER DEVELOPMENTS 



In other developments Monday: Gen. Franks revealed that some coalition forces, including Australians and British troops, were operating in the north and west of Iraq. Some were special forces traveling in small teams, he said. “They have accomplished some wonderful things out there,” Franks said, but gave no details. Bulgaria, one of the handful of nations that backed the United States on the U.N. Security Council, said that U.S. forces would use the Sarafovo camp to refuel coalition planes. Deputy Foreign Minister Lyubomir Ivanov valued the contract at $1.7 million. Syria’s official SANA news agency reported that a missile fired from a U.S. warplane struck a bus bringing Syrians home from Iraq, killing five and wounding at least 10 others. It said the attack occurred early Sunday near Iraq’s al-Rutbeh area. Pentagon sources told NBC that a U.S. warplane could have hit the bus during a raid but that it was not targeting the vehicle. U.S. military officials told NBC News that two Tomahawk cruise missiles had misfired and landed in Turkey. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the missiles landed in an unpopulated area and that the incident was under investigation.

Pentagon: Iraq could flood Tigris for defense. 

Tactic was used to slow Iranian forces during Iran-Iraq War Friday, March 21, 2003 Posted: 4:24 AM EST (0924 GMT) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Story Tools -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- U.S. military planners are devising strategies in case the Iraqi military causes the Tigris River to flood, the Pentagon said Friday. If the Iraqi military were to release water into the Tigris from upstream reservoirs, extensive flooding could occur between Baghdad and Kut, to the south, the Pentagon said. Thousands of Iraqis could be displaced, adding to congestion on roads and requiring extensive humanitarian support. The Pentagon said Iraq used flooding to deter Iranian advances during the Iran-Iraq War. 
"Iraq's strategy could include releasing a small amount of water from major dams and canals to interrupt maneuvering units," said a U.S. statement released early Friday. "Iraq also could cause catastrophic flooding of portions of the Tigris and Euphrates river valleys, either by releasing large amounts of water from dams or by destroying them." Although the latter could cause "major humanitarian crises in parts of Iraq, Baghdad would experience minimal damage," the statement said. Parts of southern Iraq routinely flood in March and April because of heavy rainfall and snow melting in the north. Some areas that are already under water could be impassable for four to six weeks, even without additional flooding, the Pentagon said. "The [Saddam] Hussein regime could incorporate the flooding into defensive preparations to slow the advance of coalition forces," the Pentagon said. "This tactic could force coalition units or displaced persons through flooded areas." Primary water sources for such "strategic flooding" are the Qadisiyah Dam and its Hadiyha Reservoir, the Pentagon said. Additionally, the release of water from five reservoirs -- Saddam, Dokan, Al Azim, Darbandikhan and Diyala -- could increase the flow rate of the Tigris. The rainy season is already expected to raise water levels in these dams, the Pentagon said. 




A FEW DOZEN tents went up on Thursday morning in a camp near here, some 35 miles from the border with Iraq. Non-Iraqis fleeing from Iraq will be sheltered here, and already Thursday several dozen Sudanese workers and their families were huddling in the tents, which were being whipped by winds of 30 to 35 mph. The border area has been swept by sandstorms for the past three days. A second camp, for Iraqis, was being constructed a few miles away. Reporters visiting the border area Thursday morning found it was open, but the Jordanian military quickly ordered journalists to move away, saying a six-mile zone around the border was closed to the press. U.S. missiles hit buildings in Baghdad Iraq says civilian buildings hit, civilian killed U.S.-led forces launch ground assault Iraqi oil wells on fire White House urges Saddam to go into exile Downed U.S. helicopter returns to air U.S. sources: "Shock and awe" assault yet to come That zone includes a Jordanian military base that has been extensively renovated by the United States in recent weeks. An estimated 300 to 400 U.S. troops are at the base, officially to engage in search-and-rescue missions for downed allied pilots. • In the battle zone • Iraq interactive library • Targets in Iraq • Target Baghdad • Urban warfare • Allied deployments • The 1991 oil fires • Tools of warfare • Scuds and Arrows • World Reax • NBC: Video reports from the field • Complete coverage: Conflict with Iraq Read more dispatches from NBC News correspondents But most people here assume that the group also includes U.S. special operations forces moving into Western Iraq to search for Scud missiles, like those that were fired from this area in 1991 against Israel. ROAD FROM BAGHDAD BOMBED Some of the people who made the five-hour trip from Baghdad to Jordan Thursday said they saw evidence that the road and a fuel depot about 100 miles west of Baghdad had been bombed. Passengers on a bus said they had to drive around craters in the pavement. And several people reported seeing bodies at the fuel depot, including that of a Jordanian truck driver. Although the station is used by civilians, it could also be used by Iraqi forces moving west from Baghdad into the desert. Officials of the Red Crescent said the two refugee camps they are constructing should be adequate for 30,000 to 50,000 people, and could with difficulty handle as many as 100,000. But if the refugee population is much larger, as it was during the 1991 war, they say they would be overwhelmed. Refugees will be given a blanket, a mattress, medicine and a box lunch, but it will be several days before a kitchen can be set up. Wells were drilled for water, but it was too salty, so desalination gear was brought in. Authorities say a ticket office will be set up for non-Iraqi refugees, so as many as possible can purchase transportation back to their home countries. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jim Maceda is an NBC News correspondent reporting from the Jordan-Iraq border.

• In the battlezone • Iraq interactive library • Targets in Iraq • Target Baghdad • Urban warfare • Allied deployments • Tools of warfare • Scuds and Arrows • World Reax • NBC: Video reports from the field • Complete coverage: Conflict with Iraq THE RESPONSE HAD a familiar ring, echoing the long debate over whether war with Iraq was justified. Leaders worried and lamented, protesters condemned and demonstrated, friends of the United States proclaimed that it was ugly but sadly necessary. There was just one key difference Thursday: This time, military action in Iraq wasn’t just a possibility. It was becoming real. Muslim leaders in Asia condemned the U.S. attack and said Americans would pay. A response from the 30-million-strong moderate Muhammadiyah Muslim group in Indonesia came within minutes of the United States and Britain launching attacks on Iraq. “This is not an attack on Islam but an attack on humanity,” said Syafii Maarif, head of the organization. Latest on the military moves Deputy Malaysian Defense Minister Shafie Apdal told Reuters in Parliament that he feared reprisals by Iraqi sympathizers in other countries. Murid Timasaen, spokesman for Thailand’s Muslims for Peace Group, said Americans would never live in peace again. “They have attracted more enemies than ever, not only from the Muslim world, but also from the Buddhist community,” he said. “Countries like Iraq don’t have the capacity to fight the Americans in a conventional war, so more terrorist means will be deployed against the Americans.” JAPAN, PHILIPPINES BACK ATTACK Two Asian countries that have been supportive of the U.S. tough position on Iraq stepped in to reiterate their support. Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo said Manila was giving political and moral support for actions to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction. “The Philippines is part of the coalition of the willing” Arroyo said in a speech to graduates of the Philippine Military Academy. “We are giving political and moral support for actions to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction.” • Complete MSNBC coverage • Latest military developments • Kurds fleeing, again • Q &A with Peter Arnett • Top defector disappears • Video coverage from NBC • Blog: Army family's journal • Encarta: Detailed Iraq map • WashPost: Special coverage Latest from Newsweek • Zakaria: Arrogant empire • Waiting with the troops Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, putting a security alliance with the United States ahead of public opinion, reiterated his moral support for Washington on Thursday after the start of a U.S.-led attack on Iraq. “At this time... I understand, and I support the start of the use of force by the United States,” Koizumi told a news conference about an hour after Bush announced the start of the attack. Japanese troops, however, will not be fighting alongside U.S. forces. Japan’s postwar, pacifist constitution renounces war as a means of settling international disputes. • Daily updates on Iraq action Thailand said it wanted no part in the war. “But we are ready to help rehabilitate (Iraq) after the fighting, up to the extent of our resources,” Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said. “At this stage, we hope the war casualties will be confined only to military targets and not on civilians.” China said the action against Iraq was “violating the norms of international behavior.” Germany expressed “great concern and consternation” that its anti-war diplomacy with France and Russia had failed; it immediately turned attention to the aftermath — and offered help dealing with the humanitarian consequences. “Soon the United States will have to reap the fruits of what they are doing now, and the fruits won’t be sweet,” Russian legislator Vladimir Lukin, a former ambassador to Washington, told Russia’s state-controlled ORT television. • Deployments 
CONDEMNATION FROM IRAN Iran, Iraq’s neighbor and longtime enemy, issued immediate condemnation, calling the U.S. action “unjustifiable and illegitimate.” Neutral Finland weighed in, too, with President Tarja Halonen calling military force outside the U.N. Security Council “not acceptable.” “The ongoing war must not result in the marginalization of the United Nations,” she said. The United States and close ally Britain on Monday gave up trying to win the backing of the U.N. Security Council for a new resolution authorizing the use of force against Iraq, arguing that they already were within their rights to launch an invasion. In November, the Security Council had voted unanimously for a tough resolution that called on Iraq to disarm or face “serious consequences.” Several months of weapons inspections, however, were inconclusive, and key members of the council stood resolutely opposed to military action.

Bush's Deadline Passes Unheeded in Iraq 31 minutes ago By DAVID ESPO, AP Special Correspondent President Bush (news - web sites)'s deadline for Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) to surrender power passed unheeded Wednesday night, and war against Iraq (news - web sites) appeared inevitable. An American-led invasion force of 300,000 troops awaited the order to strike. AP Photo AP Photo Slideshow: Iraq and Saddam Hussein Baghdad Residents Brace for Impending War (AP Video) Latest news: · France, Others: Attack on Iraq Illegal AP - 18 minutes ago · Baghdad Streets Empty As Deadline Passes AP - 43 minutes ago · Air Force: U.S. Assault Will Stun Iraqis AP - 2 hours, 37 minutes ago Special Coverage U.S. and British forces massed in the Kuwaiti desert close to the Iraqi border, giant B-52 warplanes were loaded with bombs and Tomahawk missile-carrying ships were in position, all awaiting an attack order from Bush. The deadline came at 8 p.m. EST, which was 4 a.m. Thursday in Baghdad, its population shrunken in recent days by an exodus of thousands of fearful residents. "The disarmament of the Iraqi regime will begin at a time of the president's choosing," said his press secretary, Ari Fleischer (news - web sites), moments after 8 p.m. "The American people are ready for the disarmament of Saddam Hussein. They understand what's at stake. The military is ready, the nation is ready and the cause is just." Just after the deadline, White House chief of staff Andrew Card informed the president that intelligence officials had no information that Saddam had left Iraq. Saddam's regime gave every appearance of digging in. In the minutes after the deadline, Iraqi TV showed footage of a pro-Saddam march Tuesday in Baghdad, with members of the crowd chanting pro-Saddam slogans, some brandishing rifles and carrying pictures of Saddam. "We are dedicated to martyrdom in defense of Iraq under your leadership," a loyal Iraqi parliament assured the Iraqi dictator, and armed members of the ruling Baath party deployed behind hundreds of sandbagged defensive positions in Baghdad. Even so, 17 Iraqi soldiers surrendered to American GIs during the day, eager to give up before the shooting started. Bush met periodically throughout the day with his top aides at the White House and sent formal notice to Congress that reliance on "further diplomatic and other peaceful means alone" would not suffice to counter "the continuing threat posed by Iraq." Fleischer, said the nation "ought to be prepared for the loss" of American lives once the military effort begins to depose Saddam and recover weapons of mass destruction. Aides said the commander in chief would decide on timing based on the advice of his military commanders. More than 25 protesters were arrested outside the White House, part of a larger group of demonstrators that chanted, banged drums and carried signs that read, "Stop the War on Iraq." It seemed unlikely in the extreme. Along with the U.S.-led force approaching 300,000 troops massed in the Persian Gulf region were 1,000 combat aircraft and five aircraft carrier battle groups. The United States claims the public and private support of 45 other nations in a coalition to topple Saddam. But only Britain, with about 40,000 troops, was making a sizable contribution to the military force. In a run-up to war, U.S. aircraft also dropped nearly 2 million leaflets over southern Iraq with a variety of messages, including, for the first time, instructions to Iraqi troops on how to capitulate to avoid being killed. Hundreds of miles away, at an air base in England, crews loaded bombs aboard giant B-52 combat aircraft. Apart from the desire to capture weapons of mass destruction, Bush's submission to Congress said a military attack could lead to the discovery of information that would allow the apprehension of terrorists living in the United States. An attack, it said, "is a vital part of the international war on terrorism." Despite deep divisions at the United Nations (news - web sites), Bush also claimed "the authority — indeed, given the dangers involved, the duty — to use force against Iraq to protect the security of the American people and to compel compliance with United Nations resolutions." The diplomatic wheels turned still at the United Nations where foreign ministers were meeting in the Security Council at the request of the French and Germans, prominent critics of the American military operation. "This is a sad day for the United Nations," said the organization's secretary general, Kofi Annan (news - web sites) said. "I know that millions of people around the world share this sense of disappointment and are deeply alarmed." Bush abandoned diplomacy on Monday, and administration officials blamed French intransigence for the lack of consensus on a new Security Council resolution that would have given Saddam an ultimatum. The signs of imminent conflict were abundant. Israel ordered its citizens to start carrying their gas masks to work and to school. And hundreds of Israeli residents fled Tel Aviv, fearful that Iraq would launch missiles against their seaside city, as happened in the 1991 Persian Gulf War (news - web sites). Royal Jordanian — the only commercial airline with regularly scheduled flights to Baghdad — said it was canceling them in anticipation of war. And Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak (news - web sites) offered a dual-edged analysis. He blamed Iraq for the approaching military conflict. But he also said he hoped that "different international forces will realize the dangerous repercussions of any military action on the safety and stability of the Middle East region." Another country in the region, Bahrain, publicly offered exile to Saddam "in a dignified manner that should not be seen as undermining Iraq's position and capabilities." "It's the last-hour chance and we hope that Iraq will accept this offer to avoid war," Information Minister Nabil al-Hamer told The Associated Press. Exile for the Iraqi leader "is absolutely unthinkable," said Saadoon Hammadi, speaker of Iraq's parliament. "He will be in front of everyone. He will fight and guide our country to victory."

'Defining moment' dawns on America By Rick Hampson USA TODAY On a day when Americans should have been waiting for spring, they waited for war. As President Bush's deadline for Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein ticked closer, Tuesday rituals -- weekly play dates and poker games, Bible study and baseball practice -- went on. Meanwhile, a page in history was about to turn. Eddie Hannigan, 73, spent the morning attaching American flags to the white wooden fence lining his driveway off a country road in Fallbrook, Calif. His wife was out buying yellow ribbons to tie to the flagpole. ''Woke up this morning and the wife said, 'I think we should put out the flag,' '' said Hannigan, who fought in the 1950-53 Korean War. ''It's a private driveway. No one can stop me. But the neighbors all thought it was a good idea. I don't like war, but I support our troops.'' People were reminded of the lull after another presidential ultimatum on Iraq a dozen years ago. But this time they knew, through painful experience, that war isn't something that always happens somewhere else. ''This seems more real than the first Gulf War,'' said Mary Clark, 52, a New York state employee who was passing Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan. ''It was like watching a movie. It's still just as far away, but now we have threats on our own soil. It feels like part of the battlefield, for this war is going to be here at home.'' On the other side of the continent, a man fishing in the choppy Pacific off Oceanside, Calif., agreed. ''I feel absolutely certain that we will suffer destruction from terrorist attacks,'' said Les Hite, 61, an avocado grower. ''I hope we don't look back on this day and say that's when we could have done things differently.'' To many, the country seemed to have set off on a road with no turning back. Mike Lance, 24, a New York marketing assistant, called it ''a defining moment.'' Some embraced it. Parents and teachers from the Heights Christian School in Los Angeles said they gave no thought to canceling a school trip to Washington, D.C. ''It's great,'' said Carolyn Litchfield, as she toured the Capitol. ''We're here in the middle of history.'' After months of waiting, some people said battle would come as a relief. ''Let's just get this war over with already,'' Clark said. ''I'm so frustrated about how we keep hanging on edge about this.'' In Marion, Ind., Nanette Weesner tied the 32nd yellow ribbon -- one for every day her son has been stationed with the Army in the Persian Gulf -- on the staircase in her apartment. She said she hopes that whatever happens, ''it'll happen fast, and the troops come home.'' In Hinesville, Ga., location of Fort Stewart, one resident said the civilians in town are almost eager for war. ''They want to get it on and get it over with,'' said Marion Adams, 56, ''because it's messing up their business.'' Bob Dickinson, president of Carnival Cruise Lines, said Bush's speech actually helped travelers make plans. ''It's been a kind of limbo we've been in the last couple months. Now people who have delayed making travel plans can get back to normal,'' Dickinson said. Meanwhile, Americans stocked up on emergency supplies, lit votive candles and gave blood. A few took to the streets on Tuesday in protest and in support of attacking Iraq -- mothers of soldiers wearing yellow ribbons and mothers against war wearing pink ones. To some, it felt like a rerun of 1991: the international antagonists, the internal divisions, the economic worries, the concern about terrorism, the signs saying ''No Blood for Oil.'' But there were differences. This time, fast-food deliveries already have been banned at the New York Stock Exchange. The airport metal detectors already have been fine-tuned. Office workers already are wearing their ID badges. This time, Mr. Rogers will not be around to record messages to reassure children. Some voices from around the nation: * A truck stop in Racine, Wis. Rich Reis, 44, a trucker from Hanover Park, Ill., said he has had doubts for weeks about the war. He's a Navy veteran with two sons who also served in the military. Reis' son-in-law is on a Navy vessel with 600 Marines in the Gulf. He has been there for months and has never seen his second son, who was born in December. Reis still isn't sure Iraq poses any serious threat beyond the missiles it has destroyed. He hasn't seen what he calls ''hard-core'' proof. ''Give me something to grab a hold of if you are going to put my sons' lives on the line,'' he said. But Reis also thinks it's too late too argue: ''We can't wait any more. My feeling, if we go to war -- when we go to war --is win it. Win. Don't play. Win.'' * A coffee house in Denver A storm that dumped about 3 feet of snow made the war the No. 2 news story on Denver TV. ''It's all about the snow,'' said Reb Ryan, manager and co-owner of Buzz Fill 'Er Up Cafe. ''People here right now are focused on getting through this storm.'' She closed her business at mid-morning for lack of business. Those who did drop in talked about war. ''Sixty percent are saying, 'This is crazy. I can't believe we're doing this,' '' Ryan said. ''But I have quite a few cops who come through, and they're all gung-ho for it.'' In the days before the storm, she noticed a drop-off in sales of lattes, cappuccinos and espressos. ''I think people are not looking for luxuries,'' she said. By the time the president went on TV, ''people were all on edge. They didn't want to hang out here. They wanted to go somewhere so they could watch the news.'' * A terminal at LAX The tension was palpable in the Delta Air Lines baggage claim area at Los Angeles International Airport. ''Now that it's here, I fear that the end of the world is here,'' said Joanne Drake, 68, who was arriving home from a trip to Orlando with her daughter and grandchildren. ''We're all going to be in danger from biological and chemical weapons. I'm very fearful, but I don't think we have any other choice. We can't let Saddam keep going and going.'' ''I'm afraid of everything,'' said Mandy Park, 30, a health care worker visiting from Canada with her gray tomcat. But if Saddam is ''feeding into terrorism,'' she said, ''he has to be taken care of.'' * An anti-war group in St. Louis For Woody Powell, 70, it was a day to mourn for peace and prepare for war. The executive director of Veterans for Peace fielded phone calls and e-mails while helping to organize a demonstration in Washington on Saturday. When the war begins, he said, he'll head to a military recruiting station in St. Louis to try to talk young people out of signing up. Powell said he had enlisted in the Air Force during the Korean War, ''full of patriotic fervor and the urge to prove myself as a man, and full of all the fears of inadequacy.'' ''The experience of war is not a natural one for human beings, and it does unnatural things to their psyches,'' he said. ''There are other ways to prove yourself as a human being.'' 

* A sidewalk near Ground Zero There was optimism. ''It will not be bloody,'' predicted Stephanie Baker, 36, a customer service manager from Boston. And there was pessimism. ''Gas prices will go up. Stock prices will go down,'' said Allison Vanderbrul, 21, an undergraduate at the State University of New York-New Paltz. ''People will be afraid to invest. International relations with the U.S. will get worse. International investors won't invest. It's not going to bounce back quickly.'' Alex Woods, 21, a University of Arizona undergraduate from Tucson, said it was all beyond him. ''Basically, I don't really know what's going on,'' he said. ''I hope our leaders know more than we do. I'm hoping they are making the right decisions.''

Iraqi missile range: Under UN rules, Iraq is banned from having any missiles with a range greater than 93 miles (150 km). Controversy has arisen over the al-Samoud Two missile, which has travelled up to 112 miles (180 km) in tests. In response to requests by UN inspectors, Iraq has begun destroying some of its stock of 120 of these. Analysts also believe Iraq may have some banned missiles, although inspectors have not found any. These are believed to include a small number of 400-mile (644 km) range al-Hussein missiles, which would be capable of striking Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran and Kuwait. Iraq is also thought by some analysts to have 15 to 80 Scud B missiles with a range of 185 miles. Neither of these is very effective at dispersing chemical or biological weapons, according to the International Institute for Strategic Studies. The 560-mile (902 km) range al-Abbas missile was developed more than 10 years ago from earlier Scud types, but it is not clear whether it reached operational status. Iraq does not have the facilities to build long-range missiles and would require several years and foreign assistance to do this. 


My teacher is called Jessie...she displayed herself for Carnival!...Look at Mas! Top Stories - Reuters U.S. Bombards Iraqi Units with Calls to Surrender Tue Mar 18,12:03 PM ET Add Top Stories - Reuters to My Yahoo! By Charles Aldinger WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military is bombarding military units in the south of Iraq (news - web sites) with leaflets, broadcasts and e-mails urging them to surrender rather than oppose a looming invasion, U.S. officials said on Tuesday. Reuters Photo AP Photo Slideshow: U.S. Military Build-Up U.S. Infantry Shows Off Powerful Tanks in Kuwait (AP Video) U.S. Military Hardware Unloads in Turkey (AP Video) Latest news: · U.S. Commanders Rechecking War Plans AP - 16 minutes ago · U.S. Faces Unknowns if It Heads to War AP - 1 hour, 32 minutes ago · Relations Among U.S. Religions at a Low AP - 1 hour, 51 minutes ago Special Coverage Speaking after President Bush (news - web sites) gave Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) a 48-hour deadline to leave or face war, the officials told Reuters there had been "scattered" signs of some success in the surrender initiative, but declined to give specifics. The U.S. Central Command said from its Gulf military headquarters in Qatar that 1.4 million leaflets were dumped on Iraq on Monday in the biggest drop to date in a months-long psychological warfare campaign of broadcasts and air drops. The intention, officials in Washington said, was in large measure to persuade Iraqi forces in the south to stand aside when U.S.-led forces sweep north from Kuwait toward the oil fields around the southern oil center of Basra en route to the capital of Baghdad. "Indications are very scattered, but I would say positive," said one official who asked not to be identified. Defense officials have said instructions being given to Iraqi forces were very specific, including telling them to leave their tanks with their turrets reversed and to abandon vehicles in the open while returning to barracks. The officials refused to detail the Iraqi responses but noted cautiously that Saddam's elite and hard-line Republican Guards units were stationed further north near Baghdad. AWAITING INVASION ORDER Of the 280,000 U.S. and British troops arrayed in the Gulf against Iraq, 175,000 are in Kuwait awaiting orders from Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites) to launch a massive air and ground invasion to remove Saddam and destroy alleged stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons. U.S. defense officials and private analysts say one of the first objectives of an invasion would be to overwhelm regular army units and take Basra only about 40 miles from the Kuwait border as tens of thousands of U.S. and British forces sweep northward. Basra is 340 miles southeast of Baghdad. At Camp As Sayliyah in Qatar, battle headquarters of the Central Command, a crewman from a U.S. C-130 Special Operations aircraft broadcasting messages into Iraq said the programs use music to capture attention of Iraqi listeners, then follow with information slamming Saddam and touting the nobility of the Western cause, all leading to a main point -- do not fight the invaders. "We call ourselves the weapons of mass persuasion," the crewman, identified only as Lt. Col. Mike, told reporters. 

But in Washington, U.S. defense officials also told Reuters there had been growing signs that Iraq was preparing to use chemical and biological weapons against invading troops and to destroy its own oil fields. "Some trenches dug in the south could be quickly filled with oil and set afire to delay any advance," said one U.S. official. "They might just blast rigs and blame it on us." At the Pentagon (news - web sites), one official confirmed a Washington Post report from Kuwait that the U.S. military was trying to negotiate "capitulation agreements" with Iraqi commanders under which enemy troops would turn over most of their weapons and return to their barracks rather than be taken prisoners of war. The advantage of such a move, which would allow Iraqi commanders to keep their sidearms, would be to alleviate the advancing American and British forces or the burden of keeping tens of thousands of prisoners while speeding northward.

Eighteen Iraqi border guards surrender to US army in Kuwait: military source Wed Mar 19, 2:24 PM ET IN THE NORTHERN KUWAITI DESERT (AFP) - Eighteen Iraqi border guards crossed the border into Kuwait and surrendered to US troops, a military source in the emirate told AFP. AFP Photo A US officer here had earlier said 15 Iraqi soldiers had surrendered, while the state KUNA news agency, quoting a Kuwaiti military source, put the number at 16. The military source who spoke to AFP on condition of anonymity said the 18 had crossed the border in two batches -- the first comprising two border guards and the second 16. 
The US officer earlier said the 15 Iraqis who turned themselves in to US troops had been handed over to Kuwaiti police. They were handed over after laying down their arms and giving up, said Captain Darrin Theriault, headquarters company commander of the First Brigade of the US Army's Third Infantry Division. The surrenders, at about 1500 GMT, came as a 48-hour ultimatum given by President George W. Bush (news - web sites) to Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) to leave his country by early Thursday or face a massive attack was running out. "We anticipate more (surrenders) as this continues to develop," Theriault told AFP. He stressed that the Kuwaiti police had custody of the Iraqi soldiers and "no enemy prisoners of war are under US control." The United States and Britain have some 280,000 troops mustered in the region readying an invasion of Iraq (news - web sites) after Saddam rejected Bush's warning to quit the country. About 174,000 are in Kuwait. 

US warplanes launch strikes at seven locations in southern Iraq Wed Mar 19, 5:29 PM ET WASHINGTON (AFP) - The United States and Britain conducted wide-ranging air strikes in southern and western Iraq (news - web sites), bombing long-range artillery and a surface-to-surface missile system that threatened coalition forces poised to invade the country from Kuwait, officials said. AFP Photo The warplanes struck at least seven locations over a 10 hour period as the clock ran on a US deadline for Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) and his two sons to leave the country or face war. US and British officials said the strikes were within the scope of normal enforcement of a no-fly zone over southern Iraq, and the US Central Command said they were launched in response to Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery fire. But the strikes targeted 10 artillery systems that had been moved last week into range of US and British forces massing in Kuwait for a ground offensive as well as a surface-to-surface missile system, a US defense official said. The Central Command said long range artillery were struck at Az Zubayr and in the Al Faw peninsula, and a surface-to surface missile system near Basra. Warplanes also bombed a traffic control radar near Basra and communications sites near Ash Shuaybah, Mydaysis and Ruwayshid in southern Iraq. "The artillery was struck because they were a danger to coalition ground troops in Kuwait," the command said. "The air traffic control radar was used to direct Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery fire at coalition aircraft." In western Iraq, they targeted a radar and an air defense command center near the H-3 airfield that defends the approaches to Baghdad from Jordan, the command said. "The coalition executed today's strikes after Iraqi forces fired anti-aircraft artillery at coalition aircraft patrolling the southern no-fly zone south of the 33rd parallel in Iraq," the command said. In London, a spokeswoman for the British Defence Ministry said, "We are flying over southern Iraq. This evening we are targeting systems which are a threat to our forces." "We have been doing this for the last 10 years. It's the same as we've been doing, but obviously the time is perhaps more relevant," the official said.

Top Stories - Reuters Residents Say They Saw Saddam's Son After Bombing 20 minutes ago Add Top Stories - Reuters to My Yahoo! By Khaled Yacoub Oweis BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Residents of a Baghdad suburb said on Saturday they saw Saddam Hussein (news - web sites)'s younger son Qusay alive shortly after U.S. bombs flattened a building where U.S. officials had tried to kill Saddam and his sons. Latest news: · U.S. Steps Up Police Efforts Across Iraq AP - 13 minutes ago · Residents Say They Saw Saddam's Son After Bombing Reuters - 20 minutes ago · World Finance Officials Discuss Iraq Aid AP - 20 minutes ago Special Coverage On Monday a B-1 bomber dropped four 2,000-pound bombs on the building in the Mansur district after the CIA (news - web sites) received a tip that Saddam and sons Qusay and Uday were inside. The strike demolished the building but U.S. and British officials said they suspected Saddam might have got away. This Reuters correspondent visited the upscale Mansur district on Saturday, the first time an unsupervised visit had been possible since censorship collapsed with Saddam's rule on Wednesday. Only on Saturday morning did foreign Arab fighters who had continued to resist U.S. forces pull out of the area. Among people living across the street from the bombed building, one middle-aged couple said they both saw Qusay, Saddam's heir apparent, driven away in a government-issue Peugeot 306 car about 15 minutes after the bombing. They said they had rushed out of their villa after the blast to inspect damage. Their garden remained littered with rubble. They said Qusay was sitting in the passenger seat with an AK-47 rifle in his lap. They were sure it was him, they said, because they had seen him before in the flesh. The whole street had been swarming with Saddam's special security guards before the explosions, they said. The husband, speaking on condition of anonymity, said some of his relatives believed they had seen Saddam himself at around the same time a few streets away. There was no way of independently corroborating the statements and Saddam is known to have a number of lookalikes to help protect against possible assassination attempts.

Bush Open to Delaying U.N. Iraq War Vote 52 minutes ago By BARRY SCHWEID, AP Diplomatic Writer WASHINGTON - In a reversal, the White House said Thursday that President Bush (news - web sites) is open to briefly delaying a vote on his U.N. war resolution until next week if the postponement would help gain support for the measure. AP Photo AP Photo Slideshow: Iraq and Saddam Hussein Latest news: · France Rejects British-Proposed Iraq Plan AP - 19 minutes ago · Bush Open to Delaying U.N. Iraq War Vote AP - 52 minutes ago · Iraq Dismisses British Compromise Plan AP - 1 hour, 19 minutes ago Special Coverage "It may conclude tomorrow. It may continue into next week," White House spokesman Ari Fleischer (news - web sites) said. As the vote was delayed, White House officials scrambled to organize an overseas trip for Bush, two senior White House officials said. They declined to say whether the president had approved the trip or whether it was simply in the planning stages — nor did they say where he might go. Bush called world leaders Thursday morning and met with Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern. Ireland has provided landing facilities for American military aircraft for 40 years, but Ahern said in January that Ireland would be in "a new position" if the United States took military action in Iraq (news - web sites) without a specific mandate from the U.N. Security Council. But Ahern strongly backed Bush on Thursday, saying, "For the United Nations (news - web sites) to be respected, it must be united in purpose as well as in name." Bush thanked Ireland for its support last fall as a Security Council member for a resolution demanding the Iraq disarm. "We appreciate Ireland's support for seeing the just demands of the world are enforced," Bush said. He offered no comments on the state of negotiations at the United Nations. Bush's chief spokesman has said for days that the vote would be held this week. A senior White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the president decided a few extra days of diplomacy might help British Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites), who is facing stiff domestic opposition to war while he tries to forge a compromise. The U.S.-British backed resolution under consideration sets a Monday deadline for Iraq to disarm. Pushing back the deadline for a vote likely means that deadline would be delayed as well. "The president is willing to go the extra mile for a diplomacy," Fleischer said. "There is a limit on how far he's willing to do." He said Bush was still committed to staging a U.N. vote. U.S. officials had said earlier that France is sending exactly the wrong message to Iraq's Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) by threatening to veto a United Nations resolution that would order him to disarm immediately or face war. State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said Wednesday that the stand of French President Jacques Chirac is making it less likely Iraq can be disarmed peacefully and the White House suggested for the first time that voting against the resolution in the U.N. Security Council could damage a country's relationship with the United States. France, along with Russia, has threatened to veto the resolution should it receive the nine Security Council votes necessary for approval. "Unfortunately, President Chirac has said that no matter what, they're going to veto the resolution," Boucher said. "I suppose that factor needs to be taken into account by all those who are proceeding here. "But, frankly, saying that he'll veto the resolution no matter what sends precisely the wrong signal to Baghdad, precisely the wrong signal for those who want peaceful disarmament," Boucher said. Prospects for passage of a new Security Council resolution backing the use of force were uncertain Thursday even as the United States heads for a showdown at the United Nations by the end of the week. However, the U.S. diplomatic campaign appeared to be making headway with three African countries. The administration probably would seek a vote by the council on Friday, according to U.S. officials, although one senior administration official said the White House was not ruling out pulling the resolution or postponing the vote. Needing the support of at least nine of the 15 members of the Security Council, the administration was concentrating on fence-sitters who could determine the fate of the resolution. A senior U.S. official, speaking Wednesday on condition of anonymity, said there are strong indications the three African members, Angola, Cameroon and Guinea, would vote with the United States. Foreign Minister Francois Fall of Guinea, a special target of the U.S. diplomatic drive, has at times given conflicting signals on how his country would vote. Under separate consideration was a declaration proposed by Britain that seeks to establish "benchmarks" for Saddam to show he was prepared to disclose and destroy his weapons of mass destruction. Some 270,000 U.S. and British troops are in the region to face an Iraqi army that's fewer than 400,000 soldiers and widely reported to be demoralized, poorly trained and inadequately equipped. U.S. soldiers in the Kuwaiti desert stepped up preparations Wednesday, breaking out their chemical weapons suits for the first time and scheduling a joint battle rehearsal.

U.N.'s Six Undecideds Offer Iraq 45-Day Ultimatum 2 hours, 32 minutes ago Add World - Reuters to My Yahoo! UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The U.N. Security Council's six undecided nations on the Iraq (news - web sites) issue have proposed a 45-day deadline for Baghdad to demonstrate that it is fully meeting its disarmament obligations, Cameroon's U.N. ambassador said on Tuesday. 

That would extend by more than a month an ultimatum of March 17 proposed earlier by the United States, Britain and Spain. But British Ambassador Jeremy Greenstock said he did not support an extension beyond the end of the month. "We have proposed 45 days, but this is open to negotiation," Cameroon's Martin Belinga-Eboutou told Reuters. He said the six swing votes -- Angola, Chile, Guinea, Mexico and Pakistan in addition to Cameroon -- had presented their ideas to Greenstock and were waiting for a reply. The six also proposed adding to the resolution a series of "benchmarks," or specific disarmament demands for Iraq to meet to show it was complying with previous Security Council resolutions. Facing near certain defeat in the 15-nation council, the United States and Britain have delayed a vote -- possibly until Thursday -- on their draft resolution giving Iraq a March 17 ultimatum to cooperate on U.N. disarmament demands or face war. The Bush administration had talked of a vote as early as Tuesday, but France and Russia have threatened to veto the current draft, putting the six undecided nations in an influential position as at least nine "yes" votes are required for a resolution to be adopted. 



US Ready for War Despite French, Russian Opposition 
By Alan Elsner and Mark John 


UNITED NATIONS/PARIS (Reuters) - The United States said on Wednesday it would disarm Iraq (news - web sites) with or without United Nations (news - web sites) backing, after France, Russia and Germany vowed to block a Security Council resolution authorizing war. Both sides raised the stakes in a tense and increasingly bitter tug of war about whether the world body should give 250,000 U.S. and allied troops, who have gathered in the Gulf region, a green light to invade Iraq and destroy the government of President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites). In Washington, Secretary of State Colin Powell (news - web sites) called on the Security Council to pass a U.S.-British draft resolution stating that Iraq had violated its obligation to give up all its weapons of mass destruction. However he made it clear that Washington reserved the right to attack Iraq even if they could not pass the resolution. "If the Security Council is unable to take action, despite our best efforts to work with it, we must in the interests of our own safety and, we believe, the safety of the region and the world, reserve the option to act with a coalition of willing nations if the Council does not act," Powell said in a speech to a Washington think-tank. "We believe the situation is that clear and the situation is that dangerous," he said. Powell said Saddam still had a very short time to make a strategic decision to disarm but nothing Washington had seen suggested he would do so. In Paris, France, Germany and Russia teamed up to block the war resolution. France and Russia as well as China have veto power in the 15-member Council, so a 'no' vote by any of them would defeat the motion. Flanked by his counterparts from Russia and Germany, French Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin said, "We will not allow the passage of a planned resolution which would authorize the use of force." The high-stakes diplomatic struggle has strained transatlantic relationships that have stood firm for almost 60 years since the end of the Second World War. Meanwhile, a powerful international anti-war movement has mobilized millions of people around the world against the U.S. plan, putting pressure on some of the government supporting Washington. The United States hopes to bring the resolution to a vote by the end of next week but so far only has the public support of Britain, Spain and Bulgaria. It needs nine votes to pass and no vetoes. ARE THEY BLUFFING? France, Russia, Germany, China and Syria will definitely not support the resolution, although some U.S. officials believe France and Russia are bluffing and will ultimately not use their vetoes. The other six Security Council members -- Mexico, Chile, Pakistan, Cameroon, Guinea and Angola -- are still uncommitted and all had expressed unhappiness at recent talk by President Bush (news - web sites) that his aim was now to get rid of Saddam, a U.N. diplomat said. The next big showdown is likely to come on Friday when Powell, Villepin and many of their colleagues will be at the United Nations to hear U.N. weapons inspectors deliver their latest report on Iraqi disarmament. It is likely to be a mixed picture once again. U.N. chief weapons inspector Hans Blix told reporters on Wednesday Iraq had been more cooperative recently in helping inspectors and by destroying al-Samoud missiles but he still could not say that Baghdad had accounted for all of its biological weapons. While he said there were still many open questions about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, Blix refused to join in the blanket U.S. condemnation of Iraqi cooperation. Powell dismissed the destruction of missiles, saying Iraq was hiding machinery to secretly make more and planned to resume production of the banned weapons as soon as it could. SECRET INTELLIGENCE "From recent intelligence we know that the Iraqi regime intends to declare and destroy only a portion of its banned al-Samoud inventory," he told the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "It has in fact ordered the continued production of the missiles that you see being destroyed... It has also begun to hide machinery it can use to convert other kinds of engines to power al-Samouds," Powell said. The missiles were deemed illegal for breaching U.N. range limits. Iraq destroyed nine more Wednesday, bringing to 28 the number scrapped. Baghdad had about 120 of the missiles, with about 50 deployed. The United States and Britain have more than 250,000 troops poised in the Gulf region along with dozens of warships and 600 strike aircraft. France, Germany and Russia have argued persistently that U.N. weapons inspectors, who returned to Iraq in November after a four-year absence, were succeeding in disarming Iraq and needed more time to complete the task. British Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites), an ardent backer of Bush, said Wednesday there was no change in plans to push a vote on the U.S.-British resolution. Opposition to U.S. plans to wage war persists around the world. In Australia, thousands of screaming, whistling, chanting school students staged anti-war protests across the country Wednesday, calling Prime Minister John Howard, one of Bush's staunchest allies, a warmonger. Half a million Egyptians attended a government-sponsored peace rally in Cairo. Pope John Paul (news - web sites) II urged the world to help avert another "dramatic conflict" in a day of prayer and fasting against a war on Iraq. His peace envoy met Bush in Washington to urge him to pull back from war. Turkey's parliament, in an embarrassing blow to the U.S. plans at the weekend, rejected a government proposal to let some 60,000 U.S. troops deploy in the country to set up a northern front against Iraq. The country's powerful military said Wednesday it backed the government motion. "The war will be short if a second front is opened from the north," Chief of General Staff Hilmi Ozkok said. The government has signaled it could put forward a new motion on U.S. troops, and its hand would be strengthened if the U.N. Security Council backed the U.S. draft resolution.

AP Photo AP Photo Slideshow: Iraq and Saddam Hussein Latest news: · Iraq Flattens Six More Missiles AP - 53 minutes ago · Powell Says Iraq Must Be Dealt With Now AP - 2 hours, 22 minutes ago · Blix Hopes It's Not Too Late to Avoid War AP - Wed Mar 5,10:04 PM ET Special Coverage Iraq (news - web sites) said three civilians were killed in a strike by U.S.-British coalition air patrols west of the capital, as the country built fighting positions and deployed policemen with assault rifles on Baghdad's streets in preparation for war. Hundreds of Russians began fleeing Iraq. The destruction of the Al Samoud 2 missiles brought to 34 the number of rockets crushed since last weekend. Iraq was estimated to have about 100 missiles before chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix ordered them destroyed because some tests indicated the missiles could fly farther than the 93 miles allowed under U.N. resolutions. Iraq complied with the U.N. order in an attempt to show it is disarming and to prevent a threatened U.S.-led attack. But with 230,000 American troops massing at its southern border, Iraq was clearly preparing for the worst. More sandbagged fighting positions and foxholes appeared throughout the Iraqi capital, and policemen in green helmets and armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles lined key intersections. The fighting positions, previously seen only outside key installations, now dot the entire city. "If the American administration goes ahead and attacks Iraq, it will be committing an act of absolute foolishness," President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) told a Cabinet meeting, the official Iraqi News Agency said. In Washington, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer (news - web sites) said Bush and congressional leaders have discussed a timetable for deciding on war, but he said the president was not specific. "The one timetable that the president identified that remains operative is when on Jan. 30 he said weeks, not months," Fleischer said. With war perhaps drawing nearer, hundreds of Russians waited at Saddam International Airport, where three charter flights to Moscow were listed on the departures board, witnesses said. Journalists were told not to go to the airport. An official at the Russian Embassy who wouldn't give his name said "as many as 600" Russian citizens were leaving on two charter flights Thursday. He hung up when pressed for details. Russia's Foreign Ministry has said the Emergency Situations Ministry would fly Russian workers and their families out of Iraq by Sunday, according to the Interfax news agency. It said the Russian Embassy will continue to operate. U.S. and British aircraft patrolling the southern Iraqi "no-fly zone" attacked what coalition officials said was a mobile surface-to-air missile system and an anti-aircraft battery west of Baghdad. But Iraq said the raid was on a "civilian and service installation," and that three civilians were killed. There was no way to verify the claim. U.S. and British planes have been enforcing "no-fly" zones in north and south Iraq since the 1991 Gulf War (news - web sites). They originally were intended to protect minority Kurds in the north and Shiite Muslims in the south from Iraqi government forces. A senior defense official in Washington said the coalition has nearly tripled the number of patrols and given them another purpose: to keep Iraqi defenders off-guard and mask the start of combat. Meanwhile, U.N. inspectors went Thursday to al-Aziziya, a former helicopter airfield 60 miles southeast of Baghdad where Iraq says it unilaterally destroyed 157 R-400 bombs armed with biological weapons in 1991. The inspectors have been overseeing excavations of the buried bombs and taking samples of the liquid inside those still intact to see if it includes — as Iraq claims — anthrax, aflatoxin and botulin toxin. Iraq also has opened a pit where it says it dumped stocks of anthrax and VX, along with neutralizing agents, around the same time. Iraq has asked inspectors to analyze soil samples to verify the unilateral destruction, but the inspectors are skeptical and haven't gone yet. Blix was scheduled to deliver a crucial report to the U.N.

At Evanston Township High School north of Chicago about 1,000 teen-agers walked out and circled the 3,600-pupil school in a march that lasted for one class period. Dozens of students at Lincoln Park High School in Chicago marched down snowy streets on the city's north side after leaving the school. Organizers said the actions were typical of what was taking place or planned across the country and that mass rallies and campus "teach-ins" reminiscent of the Vietnam war protest era were called elsewhere. The student actions followed on protests worldwide in recent weeks that have drawn millions in opposition to the U.S.-led campaign to disarm Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites). The National Youth and Student Peace Coalition that shaped the one-day protest said strikes were to take place at up to 200 high schools and college campuses. "We're taking a stance today to say that the youth of America do not support the Bush war policy," said Terra Lawson-Remer, a 24-year-old New York University law student and spokeswoman in New York for the coalition. "We think (the Iraq war) is going to make America less safe. We think it spurs hatred against America abroad and therefore incites terrorism. We think the U.S. is not being a good global citizen by acting unilaterally," she said. PROTESTS ELSEWHERE In Ohio some students at the University of Cincinnati and Miami University at Oxford traded classrooms for two hours of protests. Tents were set up on the Cincinnati campus for speakers and live music, and Miami students staged a morning vigil and rally. At Shippensburg University, a small state-administered school in the conservative Blue Ridge heartland of Pennsylvania southwest of Harrisburg, a minority of students who oppose war with Iraq instead organized a four-hour indoor peace rally that was expected to draw only a couple hundred of the university's 7,200 students. "This is a pretty conservative college, so we're in the minority," said John La Rosa, a senior environmental studies major who serves as co-director of Shippensburg's Student Peace Action Network. "The point for us is to join with campuses across the nation and show that there is dissent at this university." Ben Waxman, a national boycott coordinator organizing students at the University of Pennsylvania, said Bush "and all the rest claim they don't care there are millions of people in the street against the war. But they must be feeling the heat." At Gilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina, 100 students abandoned classes for a rally. College spokesperson Ty Buckner said the college, founded by Quakers in 1834, has always had strongly activist student body. "By going on strike today, we're joining students across America in not going along with business as usual with the Bush administration that's pulling us into a preemptive war that will kill thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians," said Naman Hampton, who helped organize the protest. In Gainesville, Florida, some 40 high school students bearing signs reading "Drop books not bombs" and "Peace is a family value," skipped school entirely to protest the war at a gathering near the University of Florida campus. Anya Marshall, 16, a student activist who organized the protest, said it was her generation's responsibility to speak out and, "We hope people will hear our message today and stop and think about what is going on." However some schools reported no protests. "That's not occurring at our campus," said a spokesperson for the University of South Carolina at Spartanburg, Tammy Whaley. In Chicago, about a half-dozen students performed a piece of anti-war theater on a snowy, blustery sidewalk outside Columbia College, a private arts school. Zach Sternwalker, 22, said: "I don't know what affect this will have directly, but I want to express my right to speak out. I think the war is going to happen no matter what, but ... I don't want my money used." Email Story Post/Read Msgs (4369) Print Story Ratings: Would you recommend this story?

US Ready for War Despite French, Russian Opposition 1 hour, 14 minutes ago Add Top Stories - Reuters to My Yahoo! By Alan Elsner and Mark John UNITED NATIONS/PARIS (Reuters) - The United States said on Wednesday it would disarm Iraq (news - web sites) with or without United Nations (news - web sites) backing, after France, Russia and Germany vowed to block a Security Council resolution authorizing war. 

Latest news: · Saddam: Order to Destroy Missiles Is Ploy AP - 21 minutes ago · Inspector Blix Sees Iraqi Compliance AP - 30 minutes ago · Powell Says Saddam Trying to Divide U.N. AP - 1 hour, 49 minutes ago Special Coverage Both sides raised the stakes in a tense and increasingly bitter tug of war about whether the world body should give 250,000 U.S. and allied troops, who have gathered in the Gulf region, a green light to invade Iraq and destroy the government of President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites). In Washington, Secretary of State Colin Powell (news - web sites) called on the Security Council to pass a U.S.-British draft resolution stating that Iraq had violated its obligation to give up all its weapons of mass destruction. However he made it clear that Washington reserved the right to attack Iraq even if they could not pass the resolution. "If the Security Council is unable to take action, despite our best efforts to work with it, we must in the interests of our own safety and, we believe, the safety of the region and the world, reserve the option to act with a coalition of willing nations if the Council does not act," Powell said in a speech to a Washington think-tank. "We believe the situation is that clear and the situation is that dangerous," he said. Powell said Saddam still had a very short time to make a strategic decision to disarm but nothing Washington had seen suggested he would do so. In Paris, France, Germany and Russia teamed up to block the war resolution. France and Russia as well as China have veto power in the 15-member Council, so a 'no' vote by any of them would defeat the motion. Flanked by his counterparts from Russia and Germany, French Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin said, "We will not allow the passage of a planned resolution which would authorize the use of force." The high-stakes diplomatic struggle has strained transatlantic relationships that have stood firm for almost 60 years since the end of the Second World War. Meanwhile, a powerful international anti-war movement has mobilized millions of people around the world against the U.S. plan, putting pressure on some of the government supporting Washington. The United States hopes to bring the resolution to a vote by the end of next week but so far only has the public support of Britain, Spain and Bulgaria. It needs nine votes to pass and no vetoes. ARE THEY BLUFFING? France, Russia, Germany, China and Syria will definitely not support the resolution, although some U.S. officials believe France and Russia are bluffing and will ultimately not use their vetoes. The other six Security Council members -- Mexico, Chile, Pakistan, Cameroon, Guinea and Angola -- are still uncommitted and all had expressed unhappiness at recent talk by President Bush (news - web sites) that his aim was now to get rid of Saddam, a U.N. diplomat said. The next big showdown is likely to come on Friday when Powell, Villepin and many of their colleagues will be at the United Nations to hear U.N. weapons inspectors deliver their latest report on Iraqi disarmament. It is likely to be a mixed picture once again. U.N. chief weapons inspector Hans Blix told reporters on Wednesday Iraq had been more cooperative recently in helping inspectors and by destroying al-Samoud missiles but he still could not say that Baghdad had accounted for all of its biological weapons. While he said there were still many open questions about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, Blix refused to join in the blanket U.S. condemnation of Iraqi cooperation. Powell dismissed the destruction of missiles, saying Iraq was hiding machinery to secretly make more and planned to resume production of the banned weapons as soon as it could. SECRET INTELLIGENCE "From recent intelligence we know that the Iraqi regime intends to declare and destroy only a portion of its banned al-Samoud inventory," he told the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "It has in fact ordered the continued production of the missiles that you see being destroyed... It has also begun to hide machinery it can use to convert other kinds of engines to power al-Samouds," Powell said. The missiles were deemed illegal for breaching U.N. range limits. Iraq destroyed nine more Wednesday, bringing to 28 the number scrapped. Baghdad had about 120 of the missiles, with about 50 deployed. The United States and Britain have more than 250,000 troops poised in the Gulf region along with dozens of warships and 600 strike aircraft. France, Germany and Russia have argued persistently that U.N. weapons inspectors, who returned to Iraq in November after a four-year absence, were succeeding in disarming Iraq and needed more time to complete the task. British Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites), an ardent backer of Bush, said Wednesday there was no change in plans to push a vote on the U.S.-British resolution. Opposition to U.S. plans to wage war persists around the world. In Australia, thousands of screaming, whistling, chanting school students staged anti-war protests across the country Wednesday, calling Prime Minister John Howard, one of Bush's staunchest allies, a warmonger. Half a million Egyptians attended a government-sponsored peace rally in Cairo. Pope John Paul (news - web sites) II urged the world to help avert another "dramatic conflict" in a day of prayer and fasting against a war on Iraq. His peace envoy met Bush in Washington to urge him to pull back from war. Turkey's parliament, in an embarrassing blow to the U.S. plans at the weekend, rejected a government proposal to let some 60,000 U.S. troops deploy in the country to set up a northern front against Iraq. The country's powerful military said Wednesday it backed the government motion. "The war will be short if a second front is opened from the north," Chief of General Staff Hilmi Ozkok said. The government has signaled it could put forward a new motion on U.S. troops, and its hand would be strengthened if the U.N. Security Council backed the U.S. draft resolution. 


SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea (news - web sites) said Tuesday that an American reconnaissance plane intruded into its air space on a spying mission. 

"This is a premeditated move to find an opportunity to mount a pre-emptive attack on the DPRK," said the North's official Korean Central News Agency. DPRK stands for Democratic People's Republic of Korea. North Korea regularly makes such accusations, saying the United States is preparing for an invasion. The U.S. military had no comment on the latest claim, but has said in the past its maneuvers are defensive. The accusation came hours after South Korea (news - web sites) said the North had test-fired a missile Monday that landed harmlessly in the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan. Tension are high over North Korea's nuclear development. KCNA said "U.S. imperialist warhawks" sent a RC-135 strategic reconnaissance plane into its territory on Monday. The agency said the plane had made similar intrusions in recent days. Washington keeps 37,000 American troops in South Korea.

Iraq Grades Well at U.N. Nuclear Agency 
The head of the U.N. nuclear agency will tell the Security Council next week that his inspectors need more time in Iraq, but that Saddam Hussein gets "quite satisfactory" grades for his cooperation, an agency spokesman said Friday. "Their report card will be a `B,'" International Atomic Energy Agency spokesman Mark Gwozdecky told The Associated Press. His comments came as a senior U.S. official said the Bush administration is weighing the option of extending U.N. weapons inspections in an effort to placate European allies and Russia. More...

Lawyer Arrested for Wearing a 'Peace' T-Shirt Wed Mar 5, 8:30 AM ET Add Oddly Enough - Reuters to My Yahoo! NEW YORK (Reuters) - A lawyer was arrested late Monday and charged with trespassing at a public mall in the state of New York after refusing to take off a T-shirt advocating peace that he had just purchased at the mall. According to the criminal complaint filed on Monday, Stephen Downs was wearing a T-shirt bearing the words "Give Peace A Chance" that he had just purchased from a vendor inside the Crossgates Mall in Guilderland, New York, near Albany. "I was in the food court with my son when I was confronted by two security guards and ordered to either take off the T-shirt or leave the mall," said Downs. When Downs refused the security officers' orders, police from the town of Guilderland were called and he was arrested and taken away in handcuffs, charged with trespassing "in that he knowingly enter(ed) or remain(ed) unlawfully upon premises," the complaint read. Downs said police tried to convince him he was wrong in his actions by refusing to remove the T-shirt because the mall "was like a private house and that I was acting poorly. "I told them the analogy was not good and I was then hauled off to night court where I was arraigned after pleading not guilty and released on my own recognizance," Downs told Reuters in a telephone interview. Downs is the director of the Albany Office of the state Commission on Judicial Conduct, which investigates complaints of misconduct against judges and can admonish, censure or remove judges found to have engaged in misconduct. Calls to the Guilderland police and district attorney, Anthony Cardona and to officials at the mall were not returned for comment. Downs is due back in court for a hearing on March 17

But Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz insisted Tuesday that no decision had been reached as Iraqis "prepare ourselves for the battle." In the three-hour interview with Dan Rather in the Iraq capital, CBS television quoted Saddam as calling for the debate via satellite linkup. The White House said the debate offer was not serious.

In August 1990, the Security Council imposed comprehensive sanctions on Iraq. Concerned about the extended suffering of the civilian population as a result of the sanctions, the UN Security Council passed resolution 986 (1995) in April 1995 with an "oil for food" formula as "a temporary measure to provide for the humanitarian needs of the Iraqi people". In May 1996, after extended negotiations with the UN Secretariat, Iraq signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) setting out arrangements for the implementation of resolution 986. The Office of the Iraq Programme (OIP) was established in October 1997 to implement the oil-for-food programme for Iraq.

The first oil under the programme was exported in December 1996 and the first shipments of food arrived in March 1997. To date, some $43 billion worth of contracts for humanitarian supplies and equipment have been approved. Supplies and equipment worth almost $26.6 billion have been delivered to Iraq, while another $10.1 billion worth of humanitarian supplies and equipment are in the production and delivery pipeline.

Kurds start to leave Kirkuk Guerrillas took control of Kirkuk when Iraqi forces disappeared Kurdish guerrillas have begun to pull back from the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk which they seized from Saddam Hussein's regime on Thursday. US forces are increasing their presence to establish control in the city which is a centre of the oil industry in the north. Correspondents say the moves are vital to pacify Turkey which borders northern Iraq and which opposes any moves to create an independent Kurdish state in the area. The US-led coalition is also trying to restore calm in cities wracked by violence and looting since the regime lost power. In other developments: The BBC's Paul Wood in Baghdad reports violence is now crossing the religious divide, with Shia Muslims fighting gun battles with their Sunni neighbours throughout the capital Coalition ground troops head for Tikrit after overnight air strikes pounded the home town of Saddam Hussein which remains a possible stronghold for his regime; the US says it used a new targeting system for the first time in combat for a raid on an airfield US personnel begin to take control of the northern city of Mosul after telling Kurdish militia to stay on the outskirts of the city they seized on Friday A US delegation plans to meet Iraqi opposition leaders in Nasiriya on Tuesday to discuss an interim government The BBC's Dumeetha Luthra in Kirkuk says groups of the peshmerga fighters are leaving the city, three days after their arrival caused a political storm. Map: Military operations Why Kirkuk is key Factfile: Kurdish fighters Thousands of Kurdish guerrillas flooded in as the Iraqi army abandoned Kirkuk. Turkey demanded that the US take control and has sent monitors to satisfy itself that the Kurds are not establishing a power base. Tens of thousands of Turkish soldiers remain stationed on the Iraqi border but our correspondents say the hope is that tensions will ease. US troops are setting up a base at the military airport in Kirkuk and reinforcements are expected. Lawlessness The centre of Kirkuk is largely peaceful amid the growing American presence, though there has been looting on the outskirts of the city. Lawlessness has been more of a problem in Mosul, Baghdad and Basra. Residents are taking up arms to protect themselves in Baghdad In the capital, the BBC's Andrew Gilligan says looters are now hitting ordinary civilian homes and businesses after running out of targets of the former regime. People - even hospital staff - are now armed to protect themselves and their property and some thieves have been beaten to death on the streets, our correspondent adds. The International Committee of the Red Cross says it is profoundly alarmed by the situation in Baghdad, which it says is verging on anarchy. The organisation, reminding the US and Britain of their legal responsibility to protect civilians and essential services, says looting has left the capital with virtually no functioning hospitals. Journalists found US troops in Baghdad have called on the city's police to return to work and the US Government says it will send 1,200 law and order experts to Iraq to advise on the establishment of a new police force. They don't even know what it's used for A doctor, who stood up to looters Eyewitness account Correspondents say US marines are expected to start trying to restore order in Baghdad while a British commander says UK troops will start patrols in conjunction with local forces in Basra to quell civil unrest there. US officials said marines in Baghdad recovered four journalists from a hospital in Baghdad. They said one was dead, one was unhurt and the other two were taken to a field hospital south-east of Baghdad to be treated for injuries they suffered at the Palestine Hotel in fighting as the US advanced to the centre of Baghdad last Tuesday. US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld denied Iraq was falling into chaos. "Free people are free to make mistakes and commit crimes and do bad things," he told reporters. "While no one condones looting, on the other hand one can understand the pent-up feeling that may result from decades of repression," he added.

TECHNOLOGY AND THE ORGANIZATION IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES-THIRD WORLD SOCIETIES




We cannot discuss the relationship between education and development without explicitly linking the structure of the educational system to the economic and social character of the Third World society in which it is contained. Educational systems more often than not reflect the essential nature of that society. 

Developing nations are confronted with two basic alternatives in their policy approaches to problems of education. They can continue automatically to expand formal systems at the fastest possible pace with perhaps some minor modifications in curricula, teaching methods, and examinations, while retaining the same institutional labor market structures and educational costing policies. Or they can attempt to reform the overall education system by modifying the conditions of demand for and supply of educational opportunities and by reorienting curricula in accordance with the real resource needs of the nation.

The evidence leads to the conclusion that the first alternative is likely to exacerbate the problems of unemployment, poverty, inequality, rural stagnation, and international intellectual dominance that now define the conditions of underdevelopment in much of Asia, Africa, and Latin America and that the second alternative should therfore be pursued.

Bush Open to Delaying U.N. Iraq War Vote 52 minutes ago By BARRY SCHWEID, AP Diplomatic Writer WASHINGTON - In a reversal, the White House said Thursday that President Bush (news - web sites) is open to briefly delaying a vote on his U.N. war resolution until next week if the postponement would help gain support for the measure. AP Photo AP Photo Slideshow: Iraq and Saddam Hussein Latest news: · France Rejects British-Proposed Iraq Plan AP - 19 minutes ago · Bush Open to Delaying U.N. Iraq War Vote AP - 52 minutes ago · Iraq Dismisses British Compromise Plan AP - 1 hour, 19 minutes ago Special Coverage 
"It may conclude tomorrow. It may continue into next week," White House spokesman Ari Fleischer (news - web sites) said. As the vote was delayed, White House officials scrambled to organize an overseas trip for Bush, two senior White House officials said. They declined to say whether the president had approved the trip or whether it was simply in the planning stages — nor did they say where he might go. Bush called world leaders Thursday morning and met with Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern. Ireland has provided landing facilities for American military aircraft for 40 years, but Ahern said in January that Ireland would be in "a new position" if the United States took military action in Iraq (news - web sites) without a specific mandate from the U.N. Security Council. But Ahern strongly backed Bush on Thursday, saying, "For the United Nations (news - web sites) to be respected, it must be united in purpose as well as in name." Bush thanked Ireland for its support last fall as a Security Council member for a resolution demanding the Iraq disarm. "We appreciate Ireland's support for seeing the just demands of the world are enforced," Bush said. He offered no comments on the state of negotiations at the United Nations. Bush's chief spokesman has said for days that the vote would be held this week. A senior White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the president decided a few extra days of diplomacy might help British Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites), who is facing stiff domestic opposition to war while he tries to forge a compromise. The U.S.-British backed resolution under consideration sets a Monday deadline for Iraq to disarm. Pushing back the deadline for a vote likely means that deadline would be delayed as well. "The president is willing to go the extra mile for a diplomacy," Fleischer said. "There is a limit on how far he's willing to do." He said Bush was still committed to staging a U.N. vote. U.S. officials had said earlier that France is sending exactly the wrong message to Iraq's Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) by threatening to veto a United Nations resolution that would order him to disarm immediately or face war. State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said Wednesday that the stand of French President Jacques Chirac is making it less likely Iraq can be disarmed peacefully and the White House suggested for the first time that voting against the resolution in the U.N. Security Council could damage a country's relationship with the United States. France, along with Russia, has threatened to veto the resolution should it receive the nine Security Council votes necessary for approval. "Unfortunately, President Chirac has said that no matter what, they're going to veto the resolution," Boucher said. "I suppose that factor needs to be taken into account by all those who are proceeding here. "But, frankly, saying that he'll veto the resolution no matter what sends precisely the wrong signal to Baghdad, precisely the wrong signal for those who want peaceful disarmament," Boucher said. Prospects for passage of a new Security Council resolution backing the use of force were uncertain Thursday even as the United States heads for a showdown at the United Nations by the end of the week. However, the U.S. diplomatic campaign appeared to be making headway with three African countries. The administration probably would seek a vote by the council on Friday, according to U.S. officials, although one senior administration official said the White House was not ruling out pulling the resolution or postponing the vote. Needing the support of at least nine of the 15 members of the Security Council, the administration was concentrating on fence-sitters who could determine the fate of the resolution. A senior U.S. official, speaking Wednesday on condition of anonymity, said there are strong indications the three African members, Angola, Cameroon and Guinea, would vote with the United States. Foreign Minister Francois Fall of Guinea, a special target of the U.S. diplomatic drive, has at times given conflicting signals on how his country would vote. Under separate consideration was a declaration proposed by Britain that seeks to establish "benchmarks" for Saddam to show he was prepared to disclose and destroy his weapons of mass destruction. Some 270,000 U.S. and British troops are in the region to face an Iraqi army that's fewer than 400,000 soldiers and widely reported to be demoralized, poorly trained and inadequately equipped. U.S. soldiers in the Kuwaiti desert stepped up preparations Wednesday, breaking out their chemical weapons suits for the first time and scheduling a joint battle rehearsal.

US anger at war crimes threat By Justin Webb BBC Washington correspondent The Bush administration has reacted angrily to suggestions that General Tommy Franks, the commander of the US-led war in Iraq, might be charged with war crimes. A Belgian lawyer says he is preparing a case that could see General Franks charged under a law which allows the prosecution of non-Belgian citizens for war crimes. A Brussels lawyer says General Franks did nothing to stop looting The most famous such case was brought against the Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, and caused deep strains in the relationship between Belgium and Israel. If this prosecution goes ahead, Bush administration officials are making it plain they will regard it as a major diplomatic incident - an example of political harassment. A senior administration official warned that even the issuing of indictments would result in what he called "diplomatic consequences" for Belgium. The State Department spokesman, Richard Boucher, said the Belgian authorities should act early to prevent such consequences. HAVE YOUR SAY This will only make it easier for the US to dismiss international courts as irrelevant in the future Daniel, USA Send us your comments "We believe the Belgian Government needs to be diligent in taking steps to prevent abuse of the legal system for political ends," he said. The row erupted after a Brussels lawyer gave an interview to American newspapers in which he said he was aiming to file a case next week on behalf of 10 Iraqi civilians alleging among other things that General Franks did nothing to stop the looting of hospitals in Baghdad and that coalition forces fired on an ambulance.

Having parents believe that the government is protecting their children will provide a false sense of security. The effort should be on educating parents on what the risks (and rewards) of the net are, rather than censorship."

Click to ZOOM IN >> Click to ZOOM IN >> Click to ZOOM IN >> Palestinian refugees Click to enlarge >> By Andrew Cockburn Occupied since 1967, the heartland of a future Palestinian state is a breeding ground for despair. Get a taste of what awaits you in print from this compelling excerpt. Despite their hold on the world’s attention, the Gaza Strip and West Bank territories, occupied by Israel since the Six Day War in June 1967, cover relatively tiny areas. Gaza, home to 1.1 million Palestinians and 7,000 Israeli settlers (who occupy 25 percent of the land), is only 26 miles (41 kilometers)long. A north-south drive through the center of the West Bank on Road 60, which connects the historic cities of Jenin, Nablus, Bethlehem, and Hebron, takes four hours. Traversing one of the modern east-west highways that cross between the Jordan River and the so-called Green Line, which marks the West Bank’s border with Israel, should take 30 minutes. But for most of the people who live here, time and distance are measured differently. The 2.2 million Palestinian inhabitants of the West Bank and East Jerusalem are effectively barred from most of Road 60 along with many other roads carefully engineered for the use of the 376,000 Israelis who have settled here over the past 35 years. Palestinians contemplating the 25-mile (40-kilometer) journey from Ramallah to Jericho, for example, must be prepared to spend an entire day, sometimes days, negotiating the various Israeli roadblocks and checkpoints along the way. The many peoples who have lived on this land in past ages have not always been so much at odds. A cache of letters uncovered in a cave in the Judaean desert on the southern fringe of the West Bank 40 years ago chronicles the daily life of Babatha, a second-century Jewish woman. Babatha describes Jews and Arabs coexisting without friction. Just a hundred years ago Jews, Christians, and Muslims living in Jerusalem routinely attended each other’s religious festivities. That kind of harmony eroded and disappeared in the 20th century with the rise of nationalism—Jewish and Arab—in the region. Get the whole story in the pages of National Geographic magazine. Follow developments in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in Andrew Cockburn’s update. While their leaders fail to broker peace in the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel, innocent Arabs and Jews continue to die. What should be done to put an end to the violence? How should such moves be implemented? Join the discussion. In More to Explore the National Geographic magazine team shares some of its best sources and other information. Special thanks to the Research Division. Service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is compulsory for most Israelis. All Jews are expected to serve from the age of 18—men for three years and single women for two. That obligation is followed by service in the reserves, for men up to age 51 and single women up to age 24. Married and Orthodox women are exempt, and Orthodox men are granted deferments while pursuing Torah studies. Druze males are also obligated to serve. Although Druze are ethnically Arab, differing from Muslim and Christian Arabs only in their religion, which is an offshoot of Islam, they requested that they be included in the draft and have been since the early 1950s. Muslim Bedouin also serve. The Bedouin, who in the past lived in nomadic desert tribes, have proved to be excellent at tracking, a service invaluable to border-patrol missions. Israeli law does not explicitly exclude Arab youths from military service, but their exclusion has become accepted by both sides. Most Israeli Arabs don’t want to take up arms against their Arab brothers, and the IDF doesn’t want to risk conflict in the ranks. However, the IDF has allowed Muslim and Christian Arabs to enlist on a volunteer basis. Although these volunteers are often considered outsiders by their own community, the Israeli establishment sees them as examples of the potential integration of Arab citizens in Israeli society. — Marisa Larson BBC News: Israel and the Palestinians news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/in_depth/middle_east/2001/tv_and_radio_reports/default.stm This news site gives a thorough background of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, describes key events of recent years, and offers personal accounts of Israelis and Palestinians living in the heart of the tension.

US anger at war crimes threat By Justin Webb BBC Washington correspondent The Bush administration has reacted angrily to suggestions that General Tommy Franks, the commander of the US-led war in Iraq, might be charged with war crimes. A Belgian lawyer says he is preparing a case that could see General Franks charged under a law which allows the prosecution of non-Belgian citizens for war crimes. A Brussels lawyer says General Franks did nothing to stop looting The most famous such case was brought against the Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, and caused deep strains in the relationship between Belgium and Israel. If this prosecution goes ahead, Bush administration officials are making it plain they will regard it as a major diplomatic incident - an example of political harassment. A senior administration official warned that even the issuing of indictments would result in what he called "diplomatic consequences" for Belgium. The State Department spokesman, Richard Boucher, said the Belgian authorities should act early to prevent such consequences. HAVE YOUR SAY This will only make it easier for the US to dismiss international courts as irrelevant in the future Daniel, USA Send us your comments "We believe the Belgian Government needs to be diligent in taking steps to prevent abuse of the legal system for political ends," he said. The row erupted after a Brussels lawyer gave an interview to American newspapers in which he said he was aiming to file a case next week on behalf of 10 Iraqi civilians alleging among other things that General Franks did nothing to stop the looting of hospitals in Baghdad and that coalition forces fired on an ambulance.

That thought scares Americans and Iraqis alike. Even if the transfer of authority allows GIs to step back from the front lines, deadly rivalries between Iraqis could make last week's bloodshed look like national unity. And an election-year U.S. troop drawdown is all but impossible. "If the Americans leave, there will definitely be a civil war," says Sheik Nadhim Khalil, 25, who has no great love for U.S. troops. In recent weeks they have ransacked his home and the mosque where he leads Friday services in Dholoiya, a farming town in the heart of the Sunni Triangle. U.S. officials think the best hope of preventing a bloodbath depends on creating an interim constitution that will somehow satisfy the demands of Iraq's disparate ethnic and religious groups. As if that alone didn't pose enough of a challenge, the deadline for producing the Transitional Administration Law is no later than Feb. 28. America's head civilian in Iraq, L. Paul Bremer, has done everything he can to make it happen on schedule. He still needs a miracle. His biggest problem is the country's 4 million or so Kurds. With the help of U.S. air cover they broke free from Saddam Hussein's dictatorship in the wake of Operation Desert Storm in 1991. Since then a generation of Iraqi Kurds has grown up in a virtually independent state with its own laws, its own leaders and its own army. They don't want to trade their autonomy for life as an ethnic and religious minority in an overwhelmingly Arab nation of 25 million, including 15 million Shiites. On the contrary, the young Kurds are determined to reclaim an area that belonged to their people before the 1970s, when the Baghdad regime began a massive program of forced removals in and around the city of Kirkuk. The onetime Kurdish regional capital sits atop roughly 6 percent of the world's known oil reserves. Last spring the Kurds' peshmerga fighters marched into Kirkuk with the 173d Airborne. Things turned ugly fast. Guerrilla units began sweeping through Kirkuk and villages south of the city, evicting nearly 2,000 Arabs. Ethnic clashes continued for a week until the Americans gained control. Some Kurdish militias were intercepted in the act of raiding Arab villages. Col. Bill Mayville, the 173d's brigade commander in Kirkuk, has been working ever since to mediate property disputes and organize peace talks with local Kurdish, Arab and Turkoman (ethnic Turk) leaders. He rolls his eyes at the Sunnis' constant allegations that he favors the Kurds. "We're in the middle, wearing a referee's jersey," he says. "The Kurds don't have Kirkuk." Not yet, anyway. Mayville has repeatedly warned Kurdish leaders in the city to cool their superheated "Jerusalem of Kurdistan" rhetoric, and his troops have raided Kurdish political-party offices and confiscated AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenade launchers. "No party should have an RPG," says Emma Sky, the CPA's representative in Kirkuk. "What political activity requires an RPG?" Roughly 3,000 Arab and Turkoman protesters marched through the city on New Year's Eve, and a shoot-out erupted as they neared the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan headquarters. The clashes claimed four lives. No one seems to agree on who started it, but members of all three ethnic groups describe a succession of random shootings, explosions and kidnappings in the following days. If the Kurds do secede, with or without Kirkuk, Bremer can scarcely hope to persuade other Iraqis to make sacrifices for the sake of national unity. Political observers quietly cheered when dozens of Sunni clerics gathered at Baghdad's Mother of All Battles Mosque on Christmas Day to form a consultative council, traditionally known as a shura. To outsiders the meeting looked as if the participants had finally decided to help build the new Iraq. But less than a week later one of the three organizers of the shura, Sheik Mehdi al Sumaidai, was arrested in a U.S. raid that turned up five sticks of plastic explosive, eight improvised grenades, 11 AK-47s and 3,500 rounds of ammunition, several RPG launchers and a training device for firing surface-to-air missiles at the Umm al Taboul (Mother of Drums) Mosque in the capital. Other shura members, denying any connection to the doings at the Umm al Taboul Mosque, insist their council is a legitimate political body. Khalil, who made a quick trip from Dholoiya to Baghdad a few days after the raid, says he has joined the shura. If his attitude is any sign of what the group's members think, the cause of national unity is in deep trouble. Khalil makes no secret of his contempt for Iraq's Shiite majority. In his Friday sermons he has called for the creation of Sunni militias to challenge the Shiites' 10,000 or so Iranian-trained paramilitary fighters and the Kurds' roughly 70,000 battle-hardened peshmerga fighters. "We are willing to sacrifice our sons and fathers to stop the rule of black turbans," he says, using a Sunni term of disparagement for Shiites. "Being ruled by Shiites would be the same as being ruled by Iran. This is unacceptable." Attendance at his mosque has doubled in recent months. Iraq's neighbors are saying prayers of their own as they watch what's happening next door. They have all had their share of ethnic problems with Kurds and other minorities, but their concern goes deeper than that. When the WMD searches came up empty, Bush aides began claiming that the invasion was actually a way of planting the seeds of democracy in Arab lands. Now the fear is that Iraq's collapse could destabilize the entire region Trojan Horse Poses As Windows XP Update 
Sun Jan 11,11:00 PM ET Add Technology - TechWeb to My Yahoo! 


Gregg Keizer, TechWeb News 

A new Swen-style Trojan horse posing as a critical update from Microsoft has been detected on the Internet, and users who open the e-mail message may find their machines loaded with a back-door Trojan that can steal passwords or be used in conjunction with other systems to conduct major denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.

• Trojan.Xombe (Symantec) 



Dubbed Trojan.Xombe (as in zombie) by most security firms, the Trojan shares some characteristics of the Swen worm family in that it masquerades as a message from Microsoft and purports to carry a security update in its file attachment. However, unlike Swen--a worm which first appeared last September--Trojan.Xombe doesn't self-replicate. 



"This Trojan was spammed out to a large number of computers overnight," said Ken Dunham, the director of malicious code at iDefense, a Reston, Va.-based security intelligence firm. By using spamming strategies, attackers hope to infect hundreds, even thousands, of machines before users realize what's up, or anti-virus companies can react with updated definition files. 



The faux message, which sports a spoofed sending address of windowsupdate@microsoft.com, uses the subject line 'Windows XP (news - web sites) Service Pack 1 (Express)--Critical Update' to trick recipients into opening the attached file. 



"Window [sic] Update has determined that you are running a beta version of Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1)," the message's text reads in part. "To help improve the stability of your computer, Microsoft recommends that you remove the beta version of Windows XP SP1 and re-install Windows XP SP1." The message goes on to urge the user to run the winxp_sp1.exe file attachment to re-install SP1, and recommends that anti-virus software be disabled, as it "may interfere with the installation." 



Lies. All lies. 



"The Trojan definitely downloads malicious code and installs it on the system," confirmed Dunham. By his analysis, Trojan.Xombe downloads a back-door IRC Trojan horse to the compromised machine. Once that's installed, attackers can access the PC undetected, add other code to the computer--such as key trackers for acquiring passwords--and use the machine to launch DoS attacks on other machines. 



Trojan.Xombe, and socially engineered attacks like it--including phishing expeditions such as the MiMail worm, another exploit that pretends to be something it isn't in the hope that people will open the file attachment--are the confirmation security professionals were looking for that 2004 will be a rough, rocky year. 



"Attackers use the social engineering trends of the moment," said Vincent Weaver, senior director of Symantec's security response center. Touting a security update is only natural for hackers, he added, what with the increased awareness of many computer users of ongoing security issues with Windows. 



Trojan.Xombe is also a good example of another trend first spotted in 2003, but certain to continue this year, said Dunham. 



"Trojans are being integrated into almost every piece of malicious code," he said. More than anything, hackers today want to amass an army of compromised machines--typically called zombies--that they can then use for other purposes. 



"A lot of people are worried about the next super worm," he said, "but that's not the real threat we'll see in 2004. The real threat is in Trojan horses. The goal of attackers is really about Trojans and remote control of other computers, for stealing passwords and targeted DoS attacks. It's not about fun and notoriety anymore. It's about money and power." 



Security firms, including Symantec, Network Associates, and Sophos, have posted alerts on their Web sites warning users of Trojan.Xombe, but disagree on the severity of the problem. Symantec, for instance, currently ranks the Trojan as a level '2' threat in its 1 through 5 rating system, while Network Associates tags Xombe with a 'low' threat assessment. 



The best defense against bogus e-mails carrying nasty payloads? "A lot of people see an e-mail and think that it's true," said Dunham. "But everything should be looked at with a degree of skepticism and concern, rather than trust." 



Symantec's Weaver also reminded users that Microsoft never delivers security updates via e-mail, and urged people to scan suspicious messages for tell-tale signs of a scam, such as misspelled words and awkward syntax, both of which are evident in the message loaded with Trojan.Xombe.

Updated: 4:43 p.m. ET Jan. 28, 2004 
LONDON - A judge cleared Prime Minister Tony Blair’s administration Wednesday of any direct involvement in the suicide of a government expert on Iraqi weapons, but the BBC came under fire for its reporting of the scandal, prompting its chairman to resign. The British Broadcasting Corp.’s board of governors said it accepted Gavyn Davies' resignation “with great reluctance and regret."

Blair’s administration was cleared in a report issued by appeals judge Lord Hutton, who was appointed by Blair to investigate the death of weapons expert David Kelly. 

Hutton concluded the government did not act in a “dishonorable, underhand or duplicitous” way in revealing Kelly’s identity.

Hutton said he was satisfied that nobody involved in the matter could have foreseen that Kelly would take his own life. He killed himself after being identified as the anonymous source of the BBC report accusing the government of exaggerating claims about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction to bolster support for war.

Blair welcomed Hutton’s “extraordinary, thorough, detailed and clear” report and demanded the BBC withdraw its allegation he misled the country over Iraqi weapons.

“The allegation that I or anyone else lied to this House or deliberately misled the country by falsifying intelligence on WMD is itself the real lie,” Blair said in the House of Commons. “And I simply ask that those that made it and those who have repeated it over all these months now withdraw it, fully, openly and clearly.”

Q & A Blair, the Beeb and WMD 

• What was the Hutton inquiry? 
• Was Blair's government or the BBC held responsible for Kelly's death? 
• Did Blair's government manipulate intelligence data on Iraq’s WMD? 
• What did Kelly tell BBC reporter Andrew Gilligan? 
• Did the government mishandle the naming of Kelly as the source of the BBC report? 
• Did the BBC mishandle reporter Andrew Gilligan's story? 



Lord Hutton, a senior appeals judge, presided over an inquiry into the death of British weapons expert Dr. David Kelly. Kelly committed suicide last July after being named as the source behind BBC reporter Andrew Gilligan's claim that the government "sexed up" its dossier on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction to bolster its argument for the war with Iraq. The purpose of the probe was to look into the circumstances by which Kelly was named as the reporter's source, whether or not the government manipulated the intelligence dossier, and how the BBC, known as the "Beeb," handled the story. 


No, Hutton said he was satisfied that Kelly committed suicide and that nobody involved in the matter could have foreseen that Kelly would take his own life.
"Whatever pressures and strains Dr. Kelly was subject to by the decisions and actions taken in the weeks before his death, I am satisfied that no one realized or should have realized that these pressures and strains might have driven him to take his own life or contribute to his decision to do so." 


No, Hutton said the BBC report that the government probably falsified its claim that Iraq could launch weapons of mass destruction within 45 minutes was unfounded.
"Whether or not at some time in the future the report on which the 45-minute claim was based was shown to be unreliable, the allegations reported by Mr. Gilligan on 29 May 2003 that the government probably knew that the 45-minutes claim was wrong before the government decided to put it in the dossier was an allegation that was unfounded." 


Hutton said that although it was not possible to reach a conclusion about what Kelly told Gilligan, he was satisfied that Kelly had not told the reporter that the government probably knew or suspected the 45-minute claim was wrong when it drew up the dossier. 


No, Hutton said the government did not have a devious scheme to leak Kelly’s name to the press.
"I am satisfied that there was not a dishonorable or underhand or duplicitous strategy on the part of the prime minister and officials to leak (his name)... I was satisfied there was no such underhand strategy." 


Yes.
"I consider that the editorial system which the BBC permitted was defective in that Mr. Gilligan was allowed to broadcast his report at 6:07 a.m. without editors having seen his script of what he was going to say and having considered whether it should be approved." 
In addition, he said, "the governors [of the BBC] should have made a more detailed investigation of Gilligan's notes." 
Following Hutton’s report, the chairman of the BBC, Gavyn Davies, resigned and the broadcaster apologized for some of its reporting on the war in Iraq.

BBC chief executive Greg Dyke accepted that “certain key allegations” in its report were wrong and the BBC apologized. But he said the network had never accused the prime minister of lying. 

The nationally televised report by Hutton after gathering months of evidence appeared to exonerate Blair after the biggest crisis of his seven years in office. The BBC report had challenged his integrity and the case he had made for British forces to join the war in Iraq. The scandal also damaged the BBC’s reputation.

Hutton said the BBC report that Blair’s government had manipulated its intelligence in an official dossier about Iraq’s weapons was unfounded. He specifically rebutted the BBC report that the government had “sexed up” the dossier to bolster its argument for the war in Iraq.

“I am satisfied that none of the persons whose decisions and actions I later describe ever contemplated that Dr. Kelly might take his own life. I’m further satisfied that none of those persons was at fault in not contemplating that Dr. Kelly might take his own life,” Hutton said on national TV as he read from his 328-page decision. 

“Whatever pressures and strains Dr. Kelly was subjected to by the decisions and actions taken in the weeks before his death, I am satisfied that no one realized or should have realized that those pressures and strains might lead him to take his own life,” Hutton said.

In his report, BBC journalist Andrew Gilligan said a government statement that Iraqi forces could deploy weapons of mass destruction within 45 minutes was based on false intelligence that officials knew was unreliable.

“Whether or not at some time in the future the report on which the 45-minute claim was based was shown to be unreliable, the allegations reported by Mr. Gilligan on 29 May 2003 that the government probably knew that the 45-minutes claim was wrong before the government decided to put it in the dossier was an allegation that was unfounded,” Hutton said.

BBC's handling of story 'defective'
Hutton sharply criticized the publicly funded BBC’s “defective” handling of Gilligan’s story, saying editors had failed to properly check the reporter’s allegations and did not properly investigate the government’s complaints about his report.

The judge criticized the BBC’s Board of Governors for failing to fully investigate the criticism of Gilligan’s report and would have probably discovered it to be unfounded if they had.

“If they had done this, they would probably have discovered that the notes did not support the allegation that the government probably knew that the 45 minutes claim was probably wrong,” Hutton said.

Hutton criticized the board “for failing to give proper and adequate consideration to whether the BBC should publicly acknowledge that this very grave allegation should not have been broadcast.”

The judge also said that Kelly had acted improperly by privately meeting with Gilligan and had breached rules regarding government employees contacts with the media because he hadn’t been given permission from his superiors for such a meeting.

Critics had accused the government and Blair personally of cynically exposing Kelly to massive media scrutiny, thereby contributing to his death. Kelly’s body was found near his home in a rural area in July, his left wrist slashed.

Hutton said the government acted “reasonably” in confirming Kelly’s identity after he told his superiors he was probably the source of Gilligan’s story. Kelly, however, denied telling Gilligan the 45-minute claim was false.

The judge said the government would have been guilty of a coverup if it had tried to conceal Kelly’s identity.

“The issuing of the statement was not part of a dishonorable or underhand or duplicitous strategy to leak Dr. Kelly’s name covertly in order to assist the government in its battle with the BBC,” Hutton said.

Defense Ministry could have helped more
While largely exonerating the government’s handling of the matter, Hutton said Defense Ministry officials could have given Kelly more help when they confirmed his identity to the media. But Hutton said Kelly was an intensely private man and “not easy to help.”

The judge agreed with an expert witness that a loss of self esteem and feelings of despair might have contributed to Kelly’s suicide.

Hutton also dismissed as inaccurate a claim by Gilligan that Alastair Campbell, then Blair’s director of communications, had been responsible for allegedly hyping the intelligence dossier.

“What the report shows very clearly is the prime minister told the truth, the government told the truth, I told the truth,” Campbell said. “The BBC, from the chairman and the director-general down, did not.”

Hutton pored over documents, e-mails, official minutes and extracts from Campbell’s personal diary, which provided insights into the interplay of politics and policies at the highest level.

Hutton’s hearings, lasting most of August and September, transfixed the country, which remains deeply divided about Blair’s decision to back the U.S. attack on Iraq.

The retired chief U.S. weapons inspector, David Kay, said last week that he concluded that Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction, which were the basis of Blair’s case for war.
