War, no peace

Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

WarmongersEvidence has been revealed this evening that Mssrs Bush and Blair decided to go to war on January 31st 2003, despite the abscence of another UN resolution. Of course, we all pretty much knew that anyway, but it’s going to be on the front pages for a little while again, mainly because this is further evidence that Mr Blair lied when he repeatedly said no decision had been taken. And there’s the unfortunate photo, right, of them following the meeting where they decided to kill tens of thousands of people, which instead looks more like the engagement-announcement sequel to this.
Earlier this week, the 100th British soldier killed during this war gave his life for someone else’s country. The greater tragedy is that we’ll never know when the 100th, 1,000th, 10,000th, or 100,000th innocent Iraqi civilian was killed, because we never bothered even trying to count.

the commentator is a liberal idiot!

NO SUCH THING AS AN INNOCENT MUSLIM…JUST COLLATERAL DAMAGE..
CLEARING OLD INVENTORY OR STOCKPILE OF AMMO AND WEAPONS FOR THE NEWER AND ADVANCE TYPES. LITTLE WARS ARE ALWAYS STARTED FOR THAT VERY PURPOSE AND A FEW ADDITIONAL THINGS LIKE OIL AND MONEY, DRUGS AND ROCK AND ROLL!

ONLY IDIOTS SUPPORT MUSLIMS AND THE MIDDLE EAST. THE ENEMY ARE MUSLIMS MORONS!
