    PARIS, Jan. 31 — President Jacques Chirac has demanded that the United States sign both the Kyoto climate protocol and a future agreement that will take effect when the Kyoto accord runs out in 2012. He said that he welcomed last week’s State of the Union address in which President Bush described climate change as a “serious challenge” and acknowledged that a growing number of American politicians now favor emissions cuts. But he warned that if the United States did not sign the agreements, a carbon tax across Europe on imports from nations that have not signed the Kyoto treaty...

    Daschle in another meltdown hissy fit screeched that he was "saddened, saddened that this president failed so miserably at diplomacy that we’re now forced to war" in a purely partisian and hypocritical shot at President Bush. However in 1998 when it came to Clinton, Daschle wrote to Clinton demanding that he "take all necessary and appropriate actions to respond to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." as he personally co-sponsored a war resolution that urged Mr. Clinton to use military action against Iraq. In another hypocritical statment regarding that 1998 resolution,...

    OTTAWA -- Prime Minister Jean Chretien has found an ally in defence of his comments linking the greed and arrogance of rich countries -- including the United States -- with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Sunera Thobani, the professor and feminist leader who was at the eye of a storm over anti-U.S. comments one year ago, stood up for the PM yesterday. "When I heard it, I said 'Right on prime minister,' " the University of British Columbia professor told Sun Media. One year ago, just weeks after the terrorist attacks, Thobani suggested U.S. foreign policy was "soaked in blood."...

Mr. Chirac called Mr. Hussein a man who "is especially dangerous...
