Bremer gives Falluja and the al-Sadr Shi'ites the ultimatum:

' "If you do not defend your beloved country, it will not be saved," he said.

Mr. Bremer's 20-minute speech marked his first substantial comments to Iraqis since the worst violence of the yearlong occupation erupted late last month, with the deaths of some 100 American troops, attacks on supply convoys, kidnappings and killings of foreigners and the announced withdrawal of 2,000 troops from three allied countries.'
