TODAY’S TOP SCOOPS

------------

What's On Dubya's Mind? Not War Just Yet Anyway

- U.S. President George W. Bush has just finished his opening remarks in a prime time (8pm EST) press conference in the White House announced with some fanfare this morning and broadcast live over the Internet and most U.S. TV networks. Speaking in an extremely calm tone, the President appeared to have nothing new to say on the crisis. See... Newsflash: Bush Announces Nothing [1] . Earlier... Bush Press Conference 2pm – Is It War Or Osama? [2]

[2] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0303/S00042.htm


Scoop Feature: Why We All Must Take A Stand

- Within this crisis, there is no middle ground to be crafted. Let us not be blinded by the rhetoric of religion, the politicizing, nor by the blind nationalism that springs en masse from the aggressors in this US-Iraq crisis. A healthier position would be to question ourselves on whether the willful and calculated slaughter of human beings is spiritually ordained, politically justified, or representative of the nations we each live in. See... The Diversion of Rhetoric Over Reason [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0303/S00038.htm


Babylon Express: The Littlest Terrorist

Why War Is Bad For The Economy

- How it is possible to be against this war, and the policies of the Bush administration, and also be for a free and globally engaged commercial republic. To put it more crudely, how can we make sense of the phenomenon of right-wing anti-war theory and practice? See... Lew Rockwell: War And The Economy [1] More War Vs The Economy - U.S. Economists - Statement by US Economists on Iraq War [2] - Chris Sanders: Clueless in Frogville [3] - Muscle Bound, Broke, And Spoiling For A Fight [4] - Disaster In The Global Equity Markets [5]

[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0303/S00044.htm


Dennis Hans: George The Cowardly President

- Is there a more cowardly man who walks the earth than George W. Bush? Saddam Hussein has a political and human-rights record that makes him highly vulnerable to even a mediocre debate opponent, but our president is scared silly of taking up Saddam’s challenge to a debate. See... Dennis Hans: Bush the Fork-Tongued Scaredy Cat [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0303/S00040.htm


Howard's End: ACC's Day Of Shame Approaching Fast
