Arab League demands withdrawal of US-led forces
The UN and the Arab League worthless! Why the Arab League still talking? What about all the billions spent on weapons? Don't they have any backbone? We know the answer. The weapons were to protect the regimes from their own people.
UN hampered by Annan's weak leadership
UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan has betrayed the Charter and legacy of the United Nations by failing to declare the US attack on Iraq illegal, and by not calling for an immediate ceasefire. As the UN becomes more and more relevant, its role is threatened by Annan's weak leadership, writes Electronic Iraq's Ali Abunimah.
U.S. Plans to Run Iraq Itself

The Moral Calculus of Killing
"Precision Bombing" and the American Definition of Innocence
The casualties include men, women and children who were hit by shells or flying fragments from the impact of US missiles hitting Baghdad. Many of the people were in their homes or in their gardens when they were killed or wounded. Some are still in intensive care. As the bombing continues, more injured people, some critically wounded, are arriving at the hospital. The doctor in charge of the TRIAGE unit, where wounded people brought in are assessed to identify their condition and the type of treatment the injured person needs, said: "There was blood everywhere. Every half hour the floor had to be cleaned; there was so much blood on the floor, in the emergency rooms and in the corridors.

Search yields no sign of chemical weapons
Forces from the US 3rd Infantry Division occupied the 100-acre site. According to military officials, the site is surrounded by an electric fence and the buildings within it are camouflaged, raising suspicion that it was still in use. However, a Pentagon official said on Monday that the site had probably been abandoned some time ago. Two military sites described in a CIA assessment last year as part of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction programme are now in territory occupied by US and UK forces. Neither site - one at Nasiriya and the other at al-Khamisiya, both in the southern part of the country - has so far provided evidence of WMD production.

Hypocrisy stalks the land
We no longer speak the same language. Terms like "freedom," "humanity," "democracy" and "liberation" signify the opposite of what they mean to me. I resent this theft and abuse of language.

LOOK AT WHAT America has become. We are moving on steel treads across a harsh landscape as a creature of destruction, kicking up clouds of unreality through which we see illusions of our efficiency and virtue.
