News Analysis

  • The meeting of the five permanent members of the Security Council in Geneva ended without any progress. France and Germany, showing little concern for Iraq's future, call for a timetable for US withdrawal from Iraq, instead of holding the US to account on its call for a timetable for democracy.

  • A new poll shows that most Iraqis are hopeful about the country's future. They are worried more about political reconstruction rather than the economic. This further proves that what Iraq and Iraqis really need above all else is help in walking, what appears to them to be, the long road to democracy.

  • Iraq is making progress in restoring oil production, as the security problem begins to improve. Further signs that security is getting better in Iraq came as Powell felt safe enough to take a tour of the country, visiting, amongst other places, Halabja the Kurdish town that was gassed by Saddam Hussein in 1988.

  • Reconstruction in Iraq is picking up pace, with an Indonesian company beginning oil and gas exploration. It is thought that Bush is likely to get the $87 billion from Congress, with over $20 billion set to be spent on rebuilding Iraq.
