U.N. Still Looking for Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction (tags)

Infamous Slumlord Violates Probation (tags)
Infamous Convicted Slumlord, Monica Hujazi, who pled no contest to 10 violations of the Los Angeles County building health and saftety codes, last year, and is serving 3 years probation for those violations, is up to her old tricks again. Monica Helena Hujazi, 44, puportedly owns a slum empire in excess of 80 tennement style buildings, mostly in the San Francisco Bay area. She is expanding her empire by investing in dilapadated slum type buildings in the Los Angeles area as well. However, residents in Los Angeles are aware of Mrs. Hujazi's tactics and are organizing and fighting back in what can only be called a mass renters revolt. Her latest debacle, a old art deco apartment building, of 3 stories and 72 units, is litterally rotting to the ground. Despite the deplorable condition perpetuated on the low income renters of the Hollywood Area of Los Angeles, her rents are constantly escalating, in gross violation of the Rent Stabilization Ordinance of Los Angeles. A small, one room bachelors apartment at the Alexandria Court Apartments, now costs on or about $1,000.00 per month, and a one bedroom upwards of $1,400.00. She markets her building as a "luxury" apartment, by installing granite coutertops, marble flooring in the bathrooms, and new plumbing fixtures. But these efforts are only cosemetic, she does not renovate the buildings structural, plumbing, electrical, heating, or any other renovations at all. These tennants live in conditions reminescent of the slum tenements of New York, at the begining of the 19th century, complete with rats, mice, cock roaches, fleas, ticks, spiders, and other guests of her apartmets. The residents at the Alexandria building, now lovingly refer to thier home as the "Hujazi Hilton".

How We Know Bush Will "Cut and Run" from Iraq (tags)
It looks like it's official. We're going to "cut and run" from Iraq. Oh, to be sure, that's not what the standard press reports say. They say the president insists, "We will NOT cut and run from Iraq." But the media has proven singularly credulous (that's the most charitable way we can put it) regarding the administration's pronouncements on Iraq.
Bush Faced Dwindling Data on Iraq Nuclear Bid (tags)
A review of speeches and reports, plus interviews with present and former administration officials and intelligence analysts, suggests that between Oct. 7, when President Bush made a speech laying out the case for military action against Hussein, and Jan. 28, when he gave his State of the Union address, almost all the other evidence had either been undercut or disproved by U.N. inspectors in Iraq.

Iraq War: Lies the Government Told Us (tags)
Weapons failure (tags)
Many reasons have been offered for the failure of U.S. weapons experts and scientists to find a trace of nonconventional weapons in Iraq. Israeli intelligence sources claimed these weapons had been moved to Syria before the war began, but U.S. intelligence agencies never believed it.
Revealed: How the road to war was paved with lies (tags)
On nuclear weapons, the British Government claimed that the former regime sought uranium feed material from the government of Niger in west Africa. This was based on letters later described by the International Atomic Energy Agency as crude forgeries.
Secret units in desperate hunt for banned arsenal (tags)
It is a sign of the desperation in London and Washington to find a "smoking gun" to justify the war that the Anglo-American team has already conducted three inspections in the past two weeks. No banned weapons have so far been found.

Top 31 Bush - Iraq Lies: A Reference For Seekers of Truth So many lies have been spread by the Administration and their minions that it is hard to keep track. I suppose that’s part of their strategy. Overwhelm the opposition and the public with so much misinformation that the truth will never be clear. They can then press forward in an ambiguous cloud of fear and “what if?” scenarios.
More Bush lies - US and UK hid evidence Iraq WMD stocks were already destroyed (tags)
Newsweek has obtained documents proving the US, UK, and UN knew in 1995 that Iraq had destroyed its WMD stocks. This new information needs to become part of the international debate, together with all the other "evidence" against Iraq that has proven false.

Bush Concealing Illegal WMDs In Netherlands: Report (tags)
New York - Brussels, September 27 2003 - Coinciding with the much anticipated U.N. report on weapons inspections in Iraq, this morning an international group of Citizens Inspectors faxed a startling report to all members of the U.N. Security Council in New York. The report http://www.motherearth.org/nuke/info/volkelreport.doc gives very clear evidence of the secret and illegal deployment of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) in The Netherlands. It condemns the blatant use of double standards by the UN Security Council concerning WMD.

Iraq okays UN terms, Bush pushes war (tags)
Iraq has accepted a United Nations Security Council Resolution giving weapons inspectors sweeping new rights but allows many pretexts for the Bush administration to provoke a war. The resolution warns Iraq of “serious consequences” if it doesn’t comply – and the White House has made clear that anything it defines as a material breach will almost certainly mean a new war.
Weapons Inspection: another pretext for regime change? (tags)
(this article about the previous round of inspections show that the US manipulated inspections to suite its own ends and however much Hussein cooperated, they kept moving the goal posts making the whole process futile. With Hans Blix, the current chief inspector, supporting the US resolution, I wouldn't discount a replay of this travesty. It's clear, contrary to what many liberals are arguing, that inspections can just as easily be used as a pretext for war rather than as an alternative to it.) Is there a way to ensure that they are not used that way?

By: PeaceNoWar.net At the recent report done by the congressional budget office (CBO) in Washington DC., CBO estimates that the incremental costs of deploying a force to the Persian Gulf would be between $9 billion and $13 billion. Prosecuting a war would cost between $6 billion and $9 billion a month-although how long such a war may last cannot be estimated. After hostilities end, the costs to return U.S. forces to their home bases would range between $5 billion and $7 billion, CBO estimates.

TONY BLAIR PIMPS FOR AMERICA AND WHAT IT DOES BEST--KILL PEOPLE (tags)
In a world where US citizens need to be continually reassured their country is number one, they can rest assured that for some time to come there will be one area in which their country stands head and shoulders above all others: killing people, "whether with a bullet or with phosgene," with sanctions or nuclear weapons, with the destruction of water treatment facilities or with economic policies -- it doesn't make any difference.
Iraq inspections pave way for peace (tags)
Iraq’s agreement to unconditional weapons inspections is a significant step forward, but the Bush administration’s negative reaction shows it wants to start a war regardless, former senator James Abourezk (D-S.D.) said Sept. 17.
