Traveling to Saudi Arabia

Arab American Relationship


 How can we bridge the gap of misunderstanding and build on mutual respect and trust between Arab and American People? 

The US war against Iraq
  It’s beginning to appear that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein isn’t as stupid as the Bush administration believed him to be. He has readmitted the inspectors, he’s cooperating with them, and he’s made his declaration: We have no weapons of mass destruction....
What are the real motives of the US for wanting to go to war?


US Solicits Bids to Rebuild Post-war Iraq

President George W. Bush’s administration has asked five US companies to bid on a contract to rebuild a post-war Iraq, an official said Monday. The US Agency for International Development (USAID) had sent out the detailed "request for proposals," USAID spokeswoman Ellen Yount said, confirming a Wall Street Journal report. The newspaper article, which said the contract could be worth up to 900 million dollars, was accurate, she said. Five companies were asked to bid: Houston-based Halliburton Co.’s Kellogg Brown and Root; Bechtel Group of San Francisco; Fluor of Aliso Viejo, California; Louis Berger Group of East Orange, New Jersey; and Parsons Corp. of Pasadena, California, Yount confirmed.

The rebuilding would start immediately a war ends, the paper said. The plan would restore water, roads, ports, hospitals and schools. Planners expected to finish the rebuilding in 18 months. The government had asked only a small number of US, security-cleared companies to bid under a special legal provision for "urgent circumstances," the paper said.


Meanwhile, the British newspaper, The London Times reported on Monday that Britain and the United States were planning on Monday to press chief UN weapons inspector Hans Blix to admit that he has found a "smoking gun" in Iraq, The newspaper said British and US ambassadors plan to demand that Blix reveal more details of an undeclared Iraqi unmanned aircraft, whose existence was only disclosed in a declassified 173-page document circulated by inspectors on Friday.

The discovery of the drone, which has a wing span of 25 feet, will make it much easier for waverers on the UN Security Council to accept US and British arguments that Iraq has failed to meet UN demands to disarm, The Times article said. It said Blix had failed to mention the drone in his oral report about Iraq inspections to the Security Council on Friday.
