Muharram 29, 14242003-04-01

When the US and British leaders, George W. Bush and Tony Blair, decided to meet at Camp David on March 26, they probably imagined that the war would be close to over by then.

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Qa'dah 13, 14232003-01-16

Iraqi president Saddam Hussain must be wondering what more he can do to get off George Bush’s list of “evildoers” who are marked for destruction.
