The growing opposition to the war in Iraq here in the US, and the growing strength and success of the various resistance groups fighting against the US occupation in Iraq, have put the Bush Administration in a serious bind, not just at home but in Iraq itself.

But they only wanted to frighten us, and said it was a warning”, Zareefa Abu Sahreb told us in Arabic.
