Fall 2004, Hot Zones

 Fall 2004 | Volume 52, Number 3

Click here to order this back issue of Toward Freedom’s print magazine. 

In TF’s new print edition, Tod Ensign examines the likelihood of a US return to the draft, plus the cover up of health effects from depleted uranium used in Iraq, a startling interview with Hezbollah’s political chief in Southern Lebanon, and why oil policy is really about global domination. Greg Guma looks at Iraq’s new Saddam and strength as a campaign issue.
