8: Is The Iraq War The Beginning Of World War IV?

http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0304/S00046.htm


13: The Many Faces of War

Much has been made in recent days of the controversy regarding the ethics of publishing pictures that may offend some people. However, war in of itself is offensive. It is offensive to nature, offensive to morality, and offensive to the human condition.

14: Scoop Feedback 1: War Images The US Wants Censored

16: Photo-Essay 1: The Many Faces of War

19: Photo-Essay 2: The Many Faces of War

"Iraqis living outside who say they support this war are living in comfort and enjoying the peace and tranquillity of their homes. They have no bombs taking their children away form them or raining down on them terrifying night after night."

http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0303/S00268.htm


20: A little something to read over the weekend

There was a huge thunderclap overhead last night. It woke me up, truly startled, then truly grateful that it was the work of Mother Nature and not something exploding.

23: Scoop Feedback 2: War Images The US Wants Censored

25: Hard News: Waiting at the gates of Babylon

27: Kidd Millennium: Iraq For Sale Or Rent

Who will be the next King of the Road in Baghdad, when the dusty maelstrom settles and the oil starts flowing West? That question should not shock those that understand the path of war from aggression to occupation.

29: John Kaminski: A Prayer For Iraq
