Voice from the Commonwealth Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Iraq's tightly controlled news media gave prominent coverage to anti-war demonstrations staged around the world on Saturday. Iraqi television showed footage of millions marching in the world's cities under the logo "International Day of Confronting the Aggression."
"The world said with one voice: 'No to aggression on Iraq,'" read a headline in the government daily Al-Jumhuriya. "The world rises against American aggression and the arrogance of naked force," read a front page headline in the army daily Al-Qadissiya.
"These demonstrations expressed in their spirit, meaning and slogans the decisive Iraqi victory and the defeat and isolation of America," Al-Jumhuriya said in a commentary.
This is the message that the protestors have sent to Saddam and his regime.
Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz left Italy on Sunday, capping a visit and a papal audience with an appeal to the United States to listen to protests against a war in Iraq. "My message to the United States is that it should hear the voice of the international public opinion," Aziz said at Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport.
Saddam is free to oppress the Iraqi people and pursue WMD. Meanwhile the US is evil and should be isolated. Good going folks.
