Analysis: Containing the United States-I

SKOPJE, Macedonia, March 17 (UPI) -- European intellectuals yearn for the mutually exclusive: an America contained and a regime-changed Iraq. The Chinese are more pragmatic -- though, bound by what is left of their Marxism, they still ascribe U.S. behavior to the irreconcilable contradiction

James Alexander (Jim) Jerome, PC (March 4, 1933 - August 21, 2005) was a Canadian jurist and former politician and Speaker of the Canadian House of Commons.

After receiving his law degree from Osgoode Hall in Toronto, Jerome began his law practice in Sudbury, Ontario. In 1966, he won a seat on Sudbury's city council and, the next year, attempted to win election to the Canadian House of Commons in a by-election but was defeated. He took the seat in the 1968 general election, however, and became the Liberal Member of Parliament (MP) for the Sudbury riding.

After the 1972 election, Jerome became Chairman of the Standing Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs. Since there was a minority government in place, the opposition had a majority of members on the Committee and Jerome had to remain impartial and balance the wishes of all parties in order to win approval for legislation.
