Putins Guessing Games
MOSCOW Put Iowa and New Hampshire on the back burner for a moment: Election fever also grips Russia, which chooses a new Duma in December and a president in March.

Britains Lost Sunshine
LONDON _ Political squalls have drenched Gordon Brown this October, already as cruel a month as the new prime minister hopes ever to encounter.

NEW YORK _ Hopes for an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal that will isolate the Hamas radicals who control the Gaza Strip have brightened measurably in recent days, according to European officials visiting here.

From Hope to Fear in Iraq
