Some voices Tuesday from the war on Iraq:

"To stay here as much as they've been bombed and the artillery used, they either have to be dumb or have some heart." Army Spec. Steven Shalloway, 21, of Kingsport, Tenn., about Iraqi fighters who resisted as Americans took over a Republican Guard headquarters in Baghdad.

"We are witnesses to what is happening. We are not a party." Al-Jazeera correspondent Majed Abdul-Hadi, after a U.S. bombing run hit the Baghdad office of the TV network and killed a reporter.

"The grip I used to describe that Saddam had around the throats of the Iraqi people are loosening. I can't tell you if all 10 fingers are off their throats, but finger-by-finger it's coming off." President Bush, speaking from a Northern Ireland meeting with Prime Minister Tony Blair.

"They will be burnt. We are going to tackle them." Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, rejecting any suggestion that Iraq would surrender to American forces.

"I could become a single mother just as easy as anybody. It's horrible to think about, but it's kind of a reality that you have to be prepared for." Heidi Taylor, the pregnant wife of Staff. Sgt. Duane Taylor, who is deployed with the 101st Airborne Division.

"This is not a former Yugoslavia, this is not Afghanistan. ... Basically, what we see in the Basra province is a broadly functioning civil infrastructure, and administration, to a lesser degree." British Col. Chris Vernon, on transferring control to civilians quickly in Iraq's second-largest city.

"I'm keeping some and selling the rest. Thank you, Saddam." Ishmail Hasan, among thousands of Kurds who looted chairs, cooking pots and other items from Iraqi bunkers and barracks near Kalaka.
