It is an insult to the dead to deny the link with Iraq

Tony Blair put his own people at risk in the service of a foreign power

Seumas Milne

The first piece of disinformation long peddled by champions of the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan is that al-Qaida and its supporters have no demands that could possibly be met or negotiated over; that they are really motivated by a hatred of western freedoms and way of life; and that their Islamist ideology aims at global domination.

Bush’s Orgy of Carnage

For America, the prospect of London-type bombings is a mathematical certainty.

By Mike Whitney

America has never been involved a war more clearly immoral than Iraq. From the phony pretext of weapons of mass destruction to the sadistic treatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib, the conflict has been a nauseating chronicle of butchery and deception. Now, the victims of that massive crime are striking back in London and Madrid while the Bush press-corps regurgitates the same stale theories about radicals and Islam.

Dick Armey‚s Hypocrisy on CIA Leak Case

Appearing on Fox this morning, former House Majority Leader Dick Armey said the following in regards to his assessment of the growing leak scandal:

“We‚ve got Karl Rove, who is under this constant attack of political malarkey, who has probably the most documented case of his evidence of anyone in the the whole story. So quite frankly, I think the American people are seeing it for what it is right now. More than anything else it‚s a political farce not a matter of national security interests. [Fox News, 7/14/05]‰

VERSUS

Here‚s what Dick Armey said about the case back in October 2003 when we had no idea who may have been involved:

“Now, there was no reason to tell the world about the ambassador‚s wife. It was just a short-sighted, self-centered, simple-minded cowardly act of revenge, and who‚s paying the cost? The Bush White House∑ If they ever find [the leakers], they ought to just ˜ they ought to just kick them out of the White House and prosecute them, because∑the greater the pretension, the greater the hypocrisy. [CNN, 10/19/03]‰

Indeed, Mr. Armey, hypocrisy is an easily understood story.

Thank you Editerette

As America Sinks Into the Mud, Iraq’s Neighbors Breathe a Sigh of Relief

Writing from London, the writer explains that Iraq’s neighbors, either actively or passively, have been working against the Americans due to the heavy-handed way in which Washington has gone about its experiment in democracy in Baghdad.

By Salah Al-Qallab – Edited By Rob Gibran
Translated From Arabic

The Americans should have realized this before sending their forces to occupy Iraq. It is illogical to expect countries like Syria and Iran to stand by meekly and wait for American forces to arrive at the center of their capitals.

The Horror In London

When we kill them in droves, some of them will strike back.

By Eric Margolis

We are horrified that anyone would attack innocent civilians packed in subway cars. But the extremists and fanatics who do so say they are exacting revenge for the 500,000 Iraqi civilians who died, (confirmed by the UN), from the ten year US-British embargo of Iraq. For the criminal destruction in 1991 of Iraq‚s water and sewage treatment plants that cause massive cholera and typhoid. Or for the occupation of Iraq and destruction of the city of Falluja that killed tens of thousands more civilians, and, of course, for Palestine. www.informationclearinghouse.info/article9450.htm

Between public displays of grief and solemnity she managed to round up the senior staff of the National Security Council and ask them to think seriously about “how do you capitalise on these opportunities” to fundamentally change American doctrine and the shape of the world.
