Baghdad in anarchy

"We have received information of a plan to divide Baghdad," said Rida Jawad al-Takki, a senior member of the dominant Shia Alliance. "The government is incapable of solving the situation. The situation is terrifying and black."

Afghanistan close to anarchy, warns general

· Nato commander's view in stark contrast to ministers'
· Forces short of equipment and 'running out of time'

Lieutenant General David Richards, head of Nato's international security force in Afghanistan, told a conference at the Royal United Services Institute in London. "The situation is close to anarchy," he said, referring in particular to what he called "the lack of unity between different agencies".

The picture Gen Richards painted yesterday contrasted markedly with optimistic comments by ministers when they agreed earlier this month to send reinforcements to southern Afghanistan at the request of British commanders there.

Israeli troops mass on border for mass murder

"With Washington resisting (ignoring) international calls for a ceasefire, Israeli military commanders see a clear path to press ahead with air strikes and raids by special forces in the border area as a precursor to a ground offensive that could last several weeks. Lt Gen Dan Halutz, Israeli army chief of staff, said troops would be sent in as needed but the incursions would be “limited”.

The conflict has so far cost the lives of at least 344 people in Lebanon and 34 Israelis, including 18 soldiers, since Israel launched its offensive aimed at freeing 2 captured soldiers and neutralising Hizbollah."

Tony Blair must sit back with satisfaction at the glorious outcome of his slavish policy of supporting the US. God alone knows what Mrs Margaret Beckett thinks.

Meanwhile the peripatetic and increasingly Rentagob Howells is interviewed by the doughty Sara Montgomery on BBC4 "Today" - surprisingly saying he will "not defend what Israel is doing" , but then neither will he condemn it.

Oh Hilary Benn has announced £2mn of humanitarian aid for the Lebanon says Howell .. so that will be alright then.

Get on the Marches today. Make your voice felt.
