CP: OTTAWA - Canada will re-evaluate its policies abroad to retain its independence from Washington while making its foreign policy more complementary to that of the United States. President George W. Bush was open to working closer together with Canada overseas when Martin raised the "independent but complementary" initiative during their private session over breakfast last week in Mexico, U.S. ambassador Paul Cellucci said Tuesday.

The occupation of Iraq continues to get worse for George Bush and Tony Blair. The deaths of at least 20 people in a suicide bomb attack outside the coalition headquarters in Baghdad yesterday morning underlines the spiralling unrest in the country. The toll of US casualties since Saddam Hussein's capture is higher than in the same period before it. Angry protests over unemployment and petrol shortages have erupted in several cities in the south, in areas under British control.

Tom Hayden, AlterNet: MUMBAI, INDIA -- Natalia Ablova faces a tough challenge in her campaign against the U.S. occupation of Iraq. Ablova, who looks like any friendly middle-American in her plain dress, shoulder-length hair and reading glasses, is opposing the Iraq occupation o­n the streets of Kyrgistan, the o­nly Central Asian country where such protest is permitted. "There is no chance for participatory democracy in our region," she laments. But last year, she led 30 human rights groups to the U.S. Embassy to denounce the invasion. Far from being alone, Natalia Ablova is complicating the Bush administration's war planning and its status as the sole superpower. o­n this March 20, the first anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, when the White House expected throngs of cheering Iraqis in the streets, there will be masses of jeering protestors like Natalia Ablova around the world instead. Last year, four to five million people protested in over 600 cities globally.

Draft Creep PDF Print E-mail

David Wiggins: Say hello to "draft creep." Remember "bracket creep(1)," AKA the "sneaky tax increase," whereby inflation and income growth forces people into progressively higher tax brackets? Bracket creep is a way for the government to raise taxes without seeming  to be raising taxes. There is no congressional debate, and no new law is passed for the President to sign. Taxes just go up. Similarly, draft creep is a way for the government to initiate the draft without seeming to initiate the draft.

Happy New Year.. from Baghdad PDF Print E-mail

An excerpt from the diary of a young Iraqi woman... Monday, January 05, 2004. Happy New Year... So this is 2004. Not surprisingly, it feels much like 2003... While many people consider 2003 a 'year', for us it has felt more like a decade. We started the year preparing for war. While the rest of the world was making a list of resolutions, we were making lists of necessary items for the coming battle. We spent the first two and a half months of 2003 taping windows, securing homes, stocking up o­n food, water and medication, digging wells and wondering if we would make it through the year.
