War Lynx Anti-War Protestor numbers

War Lynx

Anti-War Protestor numbers take a dive.

Britain's Foreign Office has issued a global terror warning.

Prepared for terrorism in Washington, as long as we don't have to move.

Saddam may disguise himself as a woman in order to escape U.S. forces. Here's a computer generated image of what he should look like.

Israel citizens have been ordered to carry gas masks with them at all times. Check Imshin, Expat Egghead, Tal G and Israpundit for local updates.

So much for dark of the moon.

If CNN loses its Baghdad feed, this will be why.

Christians in Pakistan are asking for government protection in case of war.

"Saddam Hussein has given his military commanders the authority to use chemical weapons without further directives from Baghdad"

Mass desertions along the northern border.

Anti-war clergymen: Pissing into the wind.

A history of the Daisy Cutter.

Logistics officers are afraid that U.S. forces are going to outrun their fuel supplies.

Sudanese volunteers for Iraq standing guard in Baghdad.

Combat pilots on the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt have been ordered to sleep in today, so they can work tonight.

The British logistics landing ship Sir Bedivere and the minehunter USS Ardent faced off against a Iraqi vessel last night.

Night has fallen in Baghdad. You can check the time here.

Odds are that Australian troops are taking part in the rumored fight around Basra. The article hints of an official attack taking place around 8pm est. The Prime Minister of Australia is scheduled to address that nation about an hour after that.

390 Iraqi POWs have been released by Iran. No word on how pissed off they are at the timing.

Satellite Sandstorm Picture

The war may be delayed, as the Canadian Natural Resources Minister isn't on board yet. Canadian businesses are not amused with their government's position.

Iraq is thought to be planning chemical attacks on Iraqi civilians in order to blame their deaths on the coalition forces.

Iraq has deployed its most sophisticated cruise missile defense in Baghdad.

The fighting in Basra may be in the leading edge of an amphibious assault, involving trops from the Special Boat Service. Other troops are driving on the old Iraqi naval base at Umm Qasr. Lots of other info here.

British troops taking up "forward battle positions" were ordered to switch off satellite phones and allied warplanes bombed targets in Iraq after coming under fire in the no-fly zone.
The first flight of B52s were expected to take off two hours before sunset to give them enough flying time to identify their targets and drop their first devastating payload before heading for home.

Iraqi Troops have started to defect, and there was a naval clash outside of Basra last night.

The President has determined that
(1) reliance by the United States on further diplomatic and other peaceful means alone will neither (A) adequately protect the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq nor (B) likely lead to enforcement of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq; and

(2) acting pursuant to the Constitution and Public Law 107-243 is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001.

Iraqi Helicopters have attacked Kurdish villages outside of Kirkuk

The Delta Force has been ordered to capture or kill Saddam Hussein

Stories are starting to come in thick and fast. I'll add them as I can. New links will appear at the top.
