in an effort to provide a more balanced view on the Iraq issue...

Iraq 'only co-operates before Security Council meetings'

Iraq times its co-operation with the United Nations weapons inspectors to coincide with the run-up to Security Council meetings, Hans Blix will say in his report this week, according to senior UN sources.

And here I thought Blix was a rabid peacenik, like Chirac. But once again, I hope the Bush Administration does not seize upon this report as justification for a war; until credible evidence has been provided that shows that Iraq possess WMDs and has links to al-Qaeda, I can't support a war on Iraq (here comes the "balanced viewpoint").

Last week, held a virtual march on Washington. There is now a new MoveOn initiative. Here is an excerpt from the email they sent out:

We've launched an emergency petition from citizens around the
world to the U.N. Security Council. We'll be delivering the
list of signers and your comments to the 15 member states of
the Security Council on THURSDAY, MARCH 6.

If hundreds of thousands of us sign, it could be an enormously
important and powerful message -- people from all over the
world joining in a single call for a peaceful solution. But
we really need your help, and soon. Please sign and ask your
friends and colleagues to sign TODAY at:
