Featured this week: As Iraqi resistance mounts: US troops demand, "Bring
us home!"

The Bush administration is facing a deepening political crisis as public
support for the invasion of Iraq falls, fuelled by the mounting death
toll of US soldiers and the unravelling of the White House's pre-war
lies about Iraq's possession of "weapons of mass destruction". As the
Iraqi people's resistance escalates, US troops and their families are
demanding, "Bring us home!".
