So you feel acting as a bullhorn for the American Bashing Democratic rag of Manchester Times/Britain, The Independent/ Britain, The Observer/Britain is the way? Your hypocrisy is stupendous.
"After the loss of 1.5 million barrels per day of Venezuelan production in December the oil price rocketed, and the scarcity of reserves threatened to do permanent damage to the U.S. oil refinery and transport infrastructure. To keep the pipelines flowing, President Bush stopped adding to the 700 million barrel strategic reserve. But ultimately oil giants such as Chevron, Exxon, BP and Shell saved the day by doubling imports from Iraq from 0.5 million barrels in November to over 1 million barrels per day. Essentially, U.S. importers diverted 0.5 million barrels of Iraqi oil per day heading for Europe and Asia to save the American oil infrastructure."
This is called energy management, you dip, something the prior administration could have taken a lesson from. Again your point is so marred in your biased partisanship that you fail to stress the point ... He managed the problem from the oil shortage.
"The United States is conducting a secret 'dirty tricks' campaign against U.N. Security Council delegations in New York as part of its battle to win votes in favor of war against Iraq."
As France did in opposition to the war, their tricks were just as dirty and underhanded. The difference is, we have anti-American puppets and rags like this one stressing everything we do. Most people (Democratic hypocrites) do not want the real fact that France has more economic reasons for opposing the war than America has for beginning the war. Where were you when Clinton "liberated" Kosovo?
In closing I would like to say, that this was the first time I've visited your website/magazine. I was amazed that in a time of war you would lead with such a hatchet piece on America. I will wait to see if you have the balls to post my opinion as well. In its absence, I will never darken your door again, and nor will my employees, my friends and my family.

I get so sick and tired of all the whining and complaining which passes for news out of your biased left-wing rag of a paper. Don't you realize what this war's all about? Don't you care about the brutality of Saddam Hussein and all the atrocities he has committed against his own people the past 20 years of his regime? Yet you keep bashing Bush, when he's trying to make a right out of a wrong.
Why don't you people and human rights activists get on your high horse and complain about the crimes against humanity committed in the Arab world? I really think you should all buy a ticket and go spend some time in a hell-hole country like Iraq and watch Saddam's goons and his own sons throw innocent people into plastic shredding machines, or pull women and screaming children out of their homes and toss them in front of the battle as human shields, or how the Iraqis dress as American soldiers and kill their fellow countrymen who surrender to them. After seeing all this, then come back and insult our wonderful president. I dare you, cowards!

I enjoyed reading your article titled "No monopoly on patriotism" (Fishwrapper, March 26) and share some of your views. I do believe that the news has painted all anti-war protesters as anti-American, which is not remotely true. But, I believe when protesters demonstrate with signs which state, "We support our troops when they shoot their officers" it's very disturbing and very anti-American. Your article also states that only Britain has backed up their words with soldiers, which is not true. Australia has also sent troops. I believe you're right about the very real possibility of a "throwaway gun" being planted if we do not find any chemical weapons. Also, don't be surprised when the troops find plenty of military arms with "Made in France" or "Made in Russia" stamped on them. Our government is not the only one playing dirty.

John Sugg: I am writing to you today from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, home of the Peaceniks, former allies, and overall useless country who is merely a mild irritant to the Bush administration.
Let me remove my tongue from my cheek before I begin.
I just wanted to thank you for writing this piece titled "No monopoly on patriotism" (Fishwrapper, March 26). I realize that there are many, many Americans who are opposed to the un-elected president and this war in Iraq and I would like to thank you for speaking out.
