The British Defence Secretary, Geoff Hoon, expects countries with significant militaries to be involved in Iraq-type conflicts for the foreseeable future.

www.newstatesman.com...

He claims this is inevitably the consequence of the end of the cold war.

Just as a side note, the article also states that Blair has been involved in five wars in his first 6 years.

He is, no doubt, very popular with defence companies.

No he will not be popular with defence companies because even though we are at war he continues to cut back on defence, make sense?

War is more likely now than ever before because the American majority voted for war. They voted for a president who will seek out and embrace war as he would his own daughters. The sad thing is, the majority who elected him, know his intentions, and continue to pretend Bush is a baby kissing candy giver that loves everybody. In 2000, bush said America would be easier to run as a dictatorship, as long as he was the dictator. He also said you're either with us or agianst us. Blair is only doing what Bush wants him to do. Look for war, further Bush's agenda, and make a profit for the big corporation.

We'll have to wait and see but i've got a feeling more conflict will start soon.
Can't blame the Americans for voting for Bush though, he's the most "American" president in recent history, a perfect reflection of far too many americans....scary.
I wonder if they will regret it 3 years from now?

Americans are a free people, who know that freedom is the right of every person and the future of every nation. The liberty we prize is not America's gift to the world; it is God's gift to humanity.

George W. Bush, State of the Union address 2003
43rd President of US (1946 - )

As Americans, we want peace -- we work and sacrifice for peace. But there can be no peace if our security depends on the will and whims of a ruthless and aggressive dictator. I'm not willing to stake one American life on trusting Saddam Hussein.

George W. Bush, October 7, 2002
43rd President of US (1946 - )

Every nation in every region now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.

George W. Bush, September 20, 2001
43rd President of US (1946 - )

Guess I see where the rest of the world stands, we stand behind you countless times. When we need help from you, you just turn your back and condemn us. You wonder why we don't listen to your comments.
