War on Terror? War on Reason

The war on terror is a dumb ass pile of crap. The reason the Coalition of the Willing invaded Iraq? WMDs – we know that is bunk. Saddam and his evil-doing? Now we get this...

The U.N.’s chief anti-torture expert, Manfred Nowak, says: "The situation is so bad many people say it is worse than it has been in the times of Saddam Hussein." Sectarian violence has filled the Baghdad morgue with bodies bearing evidence of brutal torture.

Yes Tony Bliar, you have made a monumental cock-up in backing Bu$h's oil war. But then what did we expect from a right-wing zealot? Iraq is a mess and it's only going to get worse.

The US Department of Defense has done some opinion polling that indicates that 3/4s of Iraqi Sunnis now support what the Pentagon calls the "insurgency". When the DoD started doing polling on the subject in 2003, they found that 14 percent of Sunni Arabs supported the insurgency. If there are 5 million Sunni Arabs, let us say that 1.5 million are less than 15 years of age. Of the 3.5 million left, half are women and less likely to actually engage in violence, though they might offer support for it. So that is 1.75 million men. At 75%, that is 1.3 million male supporters of the guerrilla movement.

While the war on terror here at home decends into farce...

Lieutenant-Colonel (ret.) Nigel Wylde, a former senior British Army Intelligence Officer, has suggested that the police and government story about the "terror plot" revealed on 10th August was part of a "pattern of lies and deceit."

Tony Bliar, Bu$h and all - you are Assdroids. You need a Nuremberg trial like we need a social revolution.
