Hezbollah and other Shia groups in Lebanon reject Syria pullout.



Al-Jazeera reports that Lebanese movements loyal to Damascus, such as Hizb Allah (Hezbollah), have rejected international calls for an immediate and full withdrawal of Syrian troops from the country. Hizb Allah chief Shaikh Hasan Nasr Allah said on Sunday that the groups will demonstrate in Beirut on 8 March to denounce foreign interventions and to express gratitude to Syria.

Missile Counter-Attack by Lloyd Axworthy

Lloyd Axworthy:
Dear Condi-- I know it seems improbable to your divinely guided master in the White House that mere mortals might disagree with participating in a missile-defence system that has failed in its last three tests, even though the tests themselves were carefully rigged to show results. But, gosh, we folks above the 49th parallel are somewhat cautious types who can't quite see laying down billions of dollars in a three-dud poker game. As our erstwhile Prairie-born and bred (and therefore prudent) finance minister pointed out in presenting his recent budget, we've had eight years of balanced or surplus financial accounts. If we're going to spend money, Mr. Goodale added, it will be on day-care and health programs, and even on more foreign aid and improved defence.

Italy Outraged: Charge Freed Journo Shooting Deliberate

The United States military has pursued shoot to kill policies on independent journalists at least since the opening days of the Iraq war. Dozens have been killed- all regretable "accidents of war." As Bush Himself says: "It's a dangerous place." Now, they've been outed by a survivor. - {lex}

US Weapon aims for Maximum Pain

NewScientist: "The US military is funding development of a weapon that delivers a bout of excruciating pain from up to 2 kilometres away. Intended for use against rioters, it is meant to leave victims unharmed. But pain researchers are furious that work aimed at controlling pain has been used to develop a weapon. And they fear that the technology will be used for torture."

US must ask permission to launch over Canada

CP:  The top U.S. envoy to Canada ? Paul Cellucci ? said Thursday that Canada would be ?outside of the room? while the United States decided whether to fire at incoming missiles

Mr. Martin said Friday, however, that ?we would expect to be consulted. This is our airspace, we're a sovereign nation and you don't intrude on a sovereign nation's airspace without seeking permission.?

Now we need to set up the protocols that make this work. And what happens if we say, "NO, do not launch over our air space or we would consider it an act of war."  Just like running submarines and icebreakers through Canadian Arctic waters without our permission.  -- Space & Technology Editor

Canada Says No to Missile Defence

ceasefire: Wow -- what a surprise. We knew we were getting close to a "no to missile defence" decision from Paul Martin and we expected it to happen soon after the Liberal convention in two weeks. But this is a great early gift, it's in the news everywhere -- Prime Minister Paul Martin announced yesterday that Canada will not be joining George W. Bush's missile defence scheme.

North Korea's Putative Nukes

Gwynne Dyer:
Nobody really knows much about Kim Jong-il except that he doesn't get out enough and that he has the worst haircut of any world leader. His strategies, his motives, and even his rationality are all open to question: he's probably sane, technically speaking, but the circumstances of his upbringing make sanity a pretty flexible concept in his case.

Canadian Public not in favour of Missile Defence Plan

US Missiles Canada

Not only don't we want it, but it is preposterous to think that it would ever work.  These two AP and CTV stories discuss both the recent failures in the technology and Canadian's growing opposition to participating.

Update:  see also the AFP analysis of the test falures.
