August 24, 2006 | From the Associated Press
Italy pleaded Wednesday for more European troops to join an expanded United Nations peacekeeping mission in southern Lebanon. Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi, whose country has offered to send the largest contingent, expressed frustration over efforts to raise the force mandated by a U.N. resolution that ended 34 days of fighting between Israel and Hezbollah fighters.

Wednesday the LA Weekly makes its long-awaited move into the refurbished building on Sunset Boulevard that for years housed the Hollywood Reporter. There's a chance the Weekly staff might not be the sole tenants. An enduring legend has it that the ghost of the Reporter's founder, Billy Wilkerson, inhabits his second-floor office area. Some say he sings during earthquakes. Others attribute to him a knocking sound that comes from beneath the floor.

"Scandalous," declared one. "Way off the mark," fumed another. Top Dutch leaders ditched their usual diplomacy Friday to angrily denounce a retired U.S. general's suggestion that allowing openly gay soldiers to serve in their military was partially to blame for Europe's worst massacre since World War II. The statement was made Thursday by John Sheehan, a retired Marine general, before a Senate hearing on the U.S. military's "don't ask,...

Perez de Cuellar spoke at a news conference at the opening of the 44th session of the General Assembly.

Let's tell it like it is: Americans and NATO are involved in ethnic cleansing. I would like to see Slobodan Milosevic go--and quickly. However, two wrongs do not make a right, and right now NATO and the KLA are conducting a reverse ethnic cleansing campaign against the Kosovo Serbs (33,000 have already been kicked out). The idea of NATO and the KLA making up a United Nations peacekeeping force is an oxymoron. I have even heard that NATO intends to turn the KLA into a police force. The only hope the Kosovo Serbs have is that Russians or maybe the U.N. do something.

Extension of U.S. Troops in Somalia The House called upon President Clinton to obtain congressional approval if he wants to keep U.S. troops in Somalia after Nov. 15 in a United Nations peacekeeping force. The amendment was added to HR 2401 (above). Several thousand GIs remain in Somalia under U.N. command, down from last year's peak deployment of 25,000 on a mission to ease mass starvation.

With peace in their war-torn land apparently imminent, you might think the Vlashi family would be ready to return home tomorrow. But the Kosovar refugees, who came to the San Fernando Valley two weeks ago, instead are cautious and conflicted. They have seen many promises broken by Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic during the past decade. And while they are hopeful, they are not about to trust the man they blame for the slaughter of thousands of their fellow Kosovar Albanians.

A U.S. decision to dispatch a warship toward the Lebanese coast was denounced Friday by the Iranian- and Syrian-backed militant group Hezbollah. Bush administration officials said that positioning the destroyer Cole from the island of Malta farther east toward Lebanon was an attempt to bolster security in the Levant, which was the site of a 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah. "The purpose of the U.S.

When Patrice Wilson went to a small village in Bosnia-Herzegovina last month, it was mainly for a spiritual reason. But after seeing the misery in the war-torn country, she wants to go back, this time for a more earthly purpose. "I can't come home to the U.S. and do nothing," Wilson said as she recounted the horrors and suffering she saw. "What's going on there is horrible, much worse than what the Nazis did in Germany."
