Bush visits Middle East to intensify Iraq war (tags)
The thrust of today’s talks in Jordan between George Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is clear in advance. Bush, accompanied by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, will insist that the Iraqi leader bow down to US demands for a bloody crackdown against the largest faction in his own government, the anti-occupation Sadrist movement headed by cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and its Mahdi Army militia. An unnamed senior US official bluntly told the New York Times: “It’s decision time and everybody knows it.”

Iraqis break U.S. siege of Falluja to deliver humanitarian aid! (tags)
Iraqi volunteers drive with humanitarian supplies towards areas under military siege by U.S. occupation forces in the town of Falluja, from depots in a Baghdad suburb April 8, 2004. When masses of ordinary Iraqis defy the occupation army to travel to Falluja with the intent of delivering food and medicine to those under U.S. bombs, it should be obvious that what is occurring in Iraq is a true people's uprising. Those who call the insurgents "Saddam remnants" or "dead enders", are deluding themselves. Resistance comes in many forms (photo - Ali Jasim/Reuters). EMERGENCY IRAQ PROTEST. Friday, April 9 - 5 pm.
