Today the whole said to George Bush and Tony Blair: No to War with Iraq.

Millions around the whole world have made their voice heard today in demonstrations and marches in many towns and cities.

Another war with Iraq will not help the Iraqi people. They have suffered greatly from sanctions - vital medicine and supplies are stopped from getting into Iraq. The only people that are suffering are the Iraqi people and the only people that will suffer in a war is the Iraqi people.

The war with Iraq in the gulf war in the early 90's did not help the people of Iraq. The Iraqi people suffered greatly and Saddam Hussein is still in power and nothing has changed in Iraq. All that has happened is that the ordinary people of Iraq who have suffered and not the military leaders.


Wars do not solve anything they only create more problems. British soldiers are still reaping the effect of the gulf war through gulf war syndrome. Thousands of soldiers, men and women have suffered greatly and they have had their lives totally wrecked. How many lives have to be sacrificed? They say war has not been declared but preparations for war have been made since last year and George Bush and Tony Blair seemed to be determined to go to war at any cost.

A woman who claimed she scooped up a human finger in her chili at a Wendy's restaurant has decided not to sue the fast-food chain, her lawyer said Wednesday.

Joseph Masone took a frilly looking, cream-filled sandwich cookie from the supermarket's sample tray, nodded thanks to the servers, and went to take a bite. Then he saw the box's label: Sandwich Cookie Treat For Dogs. Masone, 83, put the cookie down.

A routine delivery of chicken wings got a little too hot to handle for a Binghamton-area restaurant.

A tornado that ripped through Geoffrey Crook's home in February didn't just tear away his roof. Authorities say it exposed his elaborate marijuana-growing operation.

An infinite number of newly discovered monkeys trying to name themselves could have pounded on their keyboards a long time before coming up with this one: GoldenPalace.com.

These pigs run, jump and swim — almost anything but fly. Thousands of Shanghai residents have turned out to a city park to watch a herd of pigs compete in what organizers are calling the "Pig Olympics

Dog rescues dog from cliff.

The inspirational Charles Gonsoulin of Los Angeles, pursuing a Canadian woman he had met on the Internet, sneaked across the border on foot in February from the North Dakota side (because a 1984 crime would have prevented his legal entry), heading for the bus station in Winnipeg, 75 miles away, even though he had no experience with sub-zero (Fahrenheit) temperatures. When police picked him up just inside Canada, he was disoriented and had such frostbite that he lost 10 fingers and most toes, but, he said later, "It was all worth it for me. It's the difference between sitting around dreaming about things and going out and getting them." "I know my life is complete." He was scheduled for deportation as soon as he recovers, and the pair still haven't met. The woman lives in a Montreal suburb, 1,400 miles from Winnipeg.

In March, Billy Reed, 49, of Fleetwood, Pa., lost a 19-month battle with the state Department of Transportation over his insistence that he has a right to have his eyes closed in his driver's license photo, because of freedom of expression and his "right to happiness." After a Commonwealth Court ruled against him, Reed (who said he studies law in his spare time) said he would probably appeal. "I didn't set out on this as a mission. It's one of those things that happen in life. Here you are. Life takes you down a path, and you end up where you are." [Harrisburg Patriot-News, 3-15-05]

A mother duck brought traffic in central Dublin to a standstill for on Friday June 16 as she marched her seven ducklings to the pond for their first swim.

The duck, who was encouraged by delighted and fascinated passersbys, was relocating her young from their birthplace in the grounds of Trinity College to Saint Stephen's Green, which is the city's historic public park, around half a mile away.

Two members of Trinity's College zoology department escorted the new family safely along several busy streets.
