    Ha, that is good - nothing like rumor mongering ;)

    "The pro-war Sun, Britain's biggest-selling daily, said that US President George W. Bush would give Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein a 72-hour ultimatum to disarm next week after a crucial Security Council vote. "

    Isn't the Sun the one with the topless page3 girls? (probably why its the biggest-selling daily, not for its news.....) :D

    This story is from the Daily Telegraph. I don't think it is a tabloid, but it is probably owned by Rubert Murdoch who is 100% pro war and pro Bush. But the British are more casual about things. I heard they even allow full frontal nudity on broadcast TV.

    The story may be from the Daily Telegraph, but it cites an article in a tabloid. It's right there in the first or second paragraph.

    FYI, The Telegraph is not owned by the Australian-American Murdoch (as are the Sun and The Times), but by the Canadian Conrad Black. The Telegraph is a "serious" right-leaning broadsheet, not given to rumour-mongering.

    YES, I thought My birthday was gonna be ruined by all of this war.

    We all know it is coming and if the U.S doesn't give Turkey (the biggest bribe in history) than the war happens in 3 weeks.

    The south frount will be ready by then.

    yes, because it would be really outrageous if they responded to our family friendly 'high tech bombing campaign' with such dirty and 'so last century' weapons...:rolleyes:
