TWO: Balkans Editorial: Teach Your Children Well

SCOOP NEWS ANALYSIS - The Balkans peace summit in Sarajevo this weekend is vital, yet tragically mixed up. It occurs as US fighter jets respond to "increased threats" over Iraq. Bombs continue to kill and maim - just elsewhere. The explanation we hear for the latest action in the gulf is that US planes are being lured into missile traps by MIG fighters - presumably with either very brave, very stupid or very scared Iraqi pilots on board.

THREE: Magna Carta Society: The Republican Debate

From time to time the issue of whether New Zealand should become a republic is raised by some of our politicians, notably Mike Moore and Jenny Shipley. It is ironic, therefore, that on the same day the leader of Australia's republican movement, Janet Holmes a Court, was speaking out strongly for a republic and who should be the first President, half a world away Congressmen Ron Paul and Jack Metcalf introduced legislation into their House of Representatives which will restrict the "executive order" law-making powers of the United States President which can override Congress and the Senate.
