It is precisely by our presence [in Iraq] that we can put the squeeze on terror, that is how we localize and restrain terror attacks..."

    BUDAPEST, Hungary - It's a bold response to the mounting casualties in Iraq (news - web sites): a commitment by Hungary to keep troops there through the end of 2004. With Americans dying in nearly daily attacks, nations pulling diplomats out of harm's way and counterterrorism experts warning of accelerated violence, the U.S.-led coalition could expect a few defections. Instead, allies like Hungary insist they're prepared to stay put in Iraq come what may. "If we were attacked, would that deter us from staying there? I would say no," Defense Minister Ferenc Juhasz said in an interview with The Associated...

    U.S. soldiers in Hungary have nearly completed training the second class of Iraqi dissidents that will work as translators and liaisons for coalition forces in Iraq. About 500 Iraqi dissidents, who came from across the United States and Europe, have completed the first month-long training session and have been deployed to southwest Asia, said Army Maj. Robert Stern, spokesman for Training Task Force Warrior. He would not specify where they had gone, only that it was within Central Command’s area of responsibility. Essentially, the Iraqis, who come from various backgrounds, are receiving a condensed version of the Army’s civilian affairs...

In the statement, the Socialist-led government said it considered that the use of force against Iraq should occur "only as a last resort." Foreign Minister Laszlo Kovacs said the move did not transform Hungary into a participant in...
