Moku's a little more militant than me, but I have to say that the general gist of this post is about right.
The Iraqi people were liberated from Saddam, they are now occupied by the US/UK. That is FACT. The only issue is whether or not they are happy to be
occupied by the US/UK, and so far it seems like public opinion isn't particularly favourable to the occupiers...
There is no terrorist link to Al-Quada.
The *Palestinian* leader arrested the other day has denounced violence, has been retired for 18 years, and is a prominent political leader who the US
have no right to imprison anyway due to an amnesty signed with the Palestinians in 1993. We know that Iraq supported the Palestinians in their
conflict with Israel, there is no news there.
We have found no WMD's yet. Which considering we gave a 100% probability to their existence, seems like a bit of a cock up.
And to imply that Iraq was a threat to the US is laughable.
So overall then, I agree with the post, but would tend to say that a few of the comments need to be clarified. I am a little worried about the
"proof" that sheeple are now reporting about these links though. We've talked about the training camp with an aircraft before, the Iraqi's
celebrating 9/11 should come as no surprise, the UN sanctions were indeed lead by the US (and the US would not allow them to be lifted, considerable
evidence indicates that the US manufactured the crisis that lead to the initial retreat by inspectors to prevent the sanctions being lifted), there is
also no evidence yet that the situation in Iraq will lead to a reduction in deaths over time (looks quite unstable right now).
So the media have done a good job of convincing a lot of sheeple that Bush/Blair are in the right, but so far I remain unconvinced. If only people who
have access to the information would allow themselves to believe that their country is not a bastion of peace and justice, the world would be a safer
place for us all...
