American Samizdat

Thursday, January 30, 2003. *
I recently got back from the Maldives. Departing from Rome, there was a 2 hour layover in Dubai and thus the possiblity to ready Arab-based newspapers in English. Aside from the fact that, in between Rome and the Maldives, every newspaper I read gave radically different figures for how many U.S. troops were heading towards Iraq --one wrote 35,000, another 50,000, one even wrote 100,000,000. It makes one wonder where journalists get their information.
But the most interesting article I read while in Dubai claimed that Bush wanted to attack Iraq, not only for obvious reasons, but also to appropriate land to give to the Palestines for the creation of their own state and thus resolve the problem for the Israelis.
