    Multinational military exercise 'Eager Lion' has been launched in Jordan amid condemnation from neighboring Syria and its ally Russia.

The exercises will last for 12 days, bringing together about 8,000 personnel from 19 countries, mostly Arabic, but also including the US and Europe. The maneuvers will also involve some 3,000 Jordanian and 500 British troops.

    In her speech at a state dinner held in her honor at the Knesset Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Dem.-CA) vowed to present Israel's case to the leaders of Syria.

Pelosi spoke emotionally about her meetings with the families of the kidnapped soldiers and dramatically held up the soldiers' dog tags, which she said she displays prominently at her office in Congress and she would bring with her to Damascus. "I will send a message to the president of Syria from the families of...

    WASHINGTON, March 9, 2006 – The people of Iraq are rising up against an insurgency bent on derailing democracy in the country, a Multinational Force Iraq spokesman said today. "The people of Iraq are uniting against the insurgency," Army Maj. Gen. Rick Lynch said during a news conference from Baghdad.

Seven of Zarqawi's leaders have been killed in Anbar since September, and insurgent access to Ramadi...
