I'm not entirely sure how this turned into a debate on Iraq given that the entire world seems to agree that the removal of Saddam Hussein and the lifting of economic sanctions is a good thing but closer examination of the links that Wild Wild West provided indicates that he actually agrees with us entirely. There must simply have been a misunderstanding somewhere down the line:


Lies, Damned Lies and Terror Warnings
by John Pilger

- In his opening paragraphs John Pilger questions the fact that, in the UK, "Cross-Channel ferries, the London Underground and major public events were all said to be "targeted".

Looks like his scepticism was wrong, doesn't it, given the Tube bombings of 7 September 2005 and the Madrid bombings that preceded them. Hardly Nostradamus, is he?

This article gives some fascinating insight into John Pilger's credentials and reputation:


BBC Link

Quote from linked article: It's convenient to say this about oil, but when you look at the facts you cannot explain American foreign policy based on oil. It really is about disarmament, it clearly it has implications for oil, but it's certainly not driven by the desire to take over fields.

-Couldn't agree more!


Quote from 'Global voices on Iraq'
Yoav Godener
I believe a war on Iraq is justified. Saddam Hussein is evil and he needs to be removed. We have to ensure a better world for our kids to grow up in and for that to happen we have to take responsibility and remove dangers. I assume the Americans know what they are saying,
and I was convinced by Washington's evidence against Iraq. In the past we had bad experiences with Saddam and his lies. We are lucky to have the US and Bush to help us with this issue.

Looks like he's simply misunderstood!
