US, UK propose March 17 deadline for Iraq
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United States, joined by key allies Britain and Spain, proposed delivering an ultimatum to Saddam Hussein: give up banned weapons by March 17 or face war. But a powerful bloc of nations stood firm Friday against any new resolution that would authorize military action.
With 250,000 allied troops poised to attack Iraq and the White House warning that time for diplomacy is running out, the 15-nation U.N. Security Council emerged even more polarized after Friday's high-stakes council meeting.
Secretary of State Cohn Powell told reporters the council would vote next week on the latest proposal, an amended U.S.-British-Spanish resolution that paves the way for war.
Bush budget would yield $1.82 trillion in deficits
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Bush’s budget would produce unyielding deficits through the next decade totaling $1.82 trillion, Congress’ top budget analyst said Friday in a report that could help lawmakers trying to shrink Bush’s plan for fresh tax cuts.
The analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office accentuated how abruptly the government’s fiscal fortunes are declining. Just two years ago, forecasters envisioned an unprecedented $5.6 trillion in surpluses for the next decade.
Just since January, the budget office's cumulative projections for the next IO years have worsened by $450 billion.
Fears spur job cuts, push unemployment higher
WASHINGTON (AP) — Businesses unexpectedly slashed more than 300,000 jobs last month in the largest cuts since the terrorist attacks, pushing the unemployment rate higher as the nation moved closer to war.
Economists warned that February’s widespread job losses signal a frail economy in danger of toppling back into recession.
The civilian jobless rate reached 5.8 percent, up a tenth of a percentage point from January, the Labor Department reported Friday.
Economists had predicted the modest rise, but they were blindsided by the hemorrhaging of jobs that wiped out large hiring gains in January.
