QUOTE OF THE MONTH: "To applaud the US armyıs capture of Saddam Hussein and therefore justify its invasion and occupation of Iraq is like deifying Jack the Ripper for disembowelling the Boston Strangler." Indian writer Arundhati Roy, speaking to 100 people at a leftist anti-globalisation convention in Bombay. (The Times of India, 18 January 2004).
