Pentagon wants 'mini-nukes' to fight terrorists By Julian Coman in Washington (Excerpt from telegraph.co.uk, 26/10/2003): The DSB's [Defence Science Board] findings envisage a revamped nuclear arsenal made up of small-scale missiles whose explosive impact would be easier to control and could be targeted at smaller aggressive states.
Never before did the world have to be under such total, unquestioned control. The "1000 Year Old Reich" on the way to being realised.No Other Choice? (10/15)
Army probes soldier suicides By Gregg Zoroya, Alarmed by the number of suicides among soldiers in Iraq, the Army has asked a team of doctors to determine whether the stress of combat and long deployments is contributing to the deaths. "The number of suicides has caused the Army to be concerned," said Lt. Col. Elspeth Cameron Ritchie, a psychiatrist at the Army's Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md. Ritchie is helping to investigate the suicides in Iraq. "Is there something different going on in Iraq that we really need to pay attention to?" (Related story: Soldier's suicide shocks Pa. town)

"I'm not going to start the third world war for you," General Sir Mike Jackson, commander of the international K-For peacekeeping force, is reported to have told Gen Clark when he refused to accept an order to send assault troops to prevent Russian troops from taking over the airfield of Kosovo's provincial capital.

It Is Not a War against Terror, It's War for Territories (9/11)
If the Israelis hadn't annexed the Palestinian territories, there would have been peace a long time ago. With their rural territories shrinking around them, the Palestinian cities are becoming semi-autonomous Bantustans with no chance to develop a basic economy. They'll be condemned to live on charities from, for example, the Saudis or the Emirates. How long can charity last? The Palestinian population will have to gradually emigrate.
Bush must favour such a scenario; otherwise he would have cracked down on Israeli expansion over the Palestinian territories at the very beginning."Danke America!" (9/03)
Saddam's Baath Party power gave predominance to secularism over religious fundamentalism. Whether the US decides to stay or to go, Iraq's future can only be theocratic. The well-organized Shiites enjoy vast support from the Islamic world, while more liberal Sunnis and secularists, in general, have no friends, no money, no armed forces. I'm mostly sorry for the bright, over-qualified Iraqi women who, from the Universities and the work force, will have to go into harems and kitchens. The Croats celebrated their victory with the song "Danke Deutschland!" Now, it is the Muslim fundamentalists' turn to thank America.
