I saw Alexander (Head Prefect) Downer sounding off this evening on the news in his usual fashion, defending the Iraq war. Somehow this man and his mate John (School Captain) Howard have still not got the message that the Australian public KNOWS for certain that there is no connection between Iraq and what happened on September 11 in New York.
I find it absolutely amazing that in spite of all the evidence being in favour of having allowed Saddam Hussein to continue his oppression of his people (in other words, I know the guy is a nasty piece of work), we still went to war on the pretence of there having been Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. We know there were none, we know Saddam did as he was told and stopped the development of a nuclear program and yet… there we are.
The inevitable result is a constant battle between various religious sects and tribes, for power. It is already a civil war, but nobody is calling it yet. Its a bloody nightmare over there, WE caused it, and now we use its existence for justification of our presence. Thats as psychopathic as someone saying “I hit him because he was going to hit me and now that he hit me back, my first hit is justified”.
Our leaders are raving psychopaths who need to be shut down. Please god the next election brings some sense because right now, this lunacy is creating more problems than it ever could possibly have solved.
