12/10 News From Iraq: International HR Day Americans Tells Bush--No War in Iraq!

by Lee Siu Hin Thursday, Dec. 12, 2002 at 2:39 PM

PeaceNoWar News Service http://www.PeaceNoWar.net Iraq News Summary: December 10, from Goshen, Ind., grannies collecting relief kits to a "die-in" on an Ivy League campus, Americans took to the streets Tuesday in mostly small, low-key events to protest a possible war on Iraq. More than 100 people were arrested...

Yet, the Bush and Military still playing their War Drums, desperately looking for War, according from the latest calculations, Experts, including Senator Joseph Biden, Chair of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, indicate that the war may cost as much as $80-$100 billion. In the worst case, a war with Iraq could cost the United States nearly $2 trillion, almost as much as the government spent in the last budget year - according to new projections.

While United Nations' inspections in Iraq is still going on, and the oil-for-food programme still rolling. US and UK Continue accusing Iraq human rights abuse for the justification for the war, while double standards on Iraq's neighboring countries' human rights issues. Even worse, sleeping with the same bad, corporate media are manufacturing hoax and bias to support and cheerleading upcoming war in Iraq.
