Surprise surprise no nukes in the desert
The above link speaks for itself.
There was no great enthusiasm in this country for war in Iraq from anyone outside of Westminster, and not that many inside. But to war we went - on the basis that there were weapons of mass destruction pointing at us.
Thousands lost their lives as a result, including a respected scientist who apparantly committed suicide, after pointing out that the evidence upon which we based our causus belli was completely wrong.
The excuses offered after the event about ridding the World of evil dictators are an insult to our intelligence. The world is full of dubious dictators and evil regimes. How many others are facing military action? Millions have died in the Congo alone and while we send the troops into Iraq the Government allowed our cricket team to tour Zimbabwe where millions of black farmworkers face starvation as a result of policies followed by Mugabe.
The real mystery is this - just how has this Government got away with it?
