The Bush administration was unable
to show any hard link between Iraq and the attacks of Sept. 11, so it has declared that the simple possession of weapons of mass destruction by a "rogue state" is terrorism.
Now, the House International Relations Committee is considering a resolution that will declare Iraq's refusal to allow weapons inspectors in an act of "aggression" against the United States (weapons inspectors were removed by the United States shortly before the December 1998 "Desert Fox" bombing campaign, and Iraq has not allowed any back in). This is a clear move to authorize large-scale bombing of Iraq. For those of you living in the United States, the following action alert has information on what to do. For everyone else, please do take note. It's not too early to start thinking about demonstrations.For more information about Iraq, see http://www.casi.org.uk,
