Topics and Guests, March 27

Tonight on Special Report with Brit Hume:

President Bush and his closest ally, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, reiterate their commitment to disarming Saddam Hussein and seeing to it that a soon-to-be free Iraq has a stable government representative of its people. Also, good weather and the opening of the northern front allow coalition troops to bulk up their forces on three sides.


• Iraqi paramilitary forces are seizing children and threatening Iraqi men with execution if they don't fight for the regime.

• Coalition forces announce plans to increase attacks against Iraqi forces in the coming hours and days.

• Denied rights to invade by land from Turkey, the U.S. military instead parachutes about 1,000 Army troops into Kurdish-held northern Iraq in a dramatic nighttime operation that opens another front against Saddam Hussein's regime.
