Homegrown war criminal's 'a serious problem in Australia'

01-11-2006 20:44

So we must be very alert and very alarmed!
Jump, scream, run and hide the muswims are coming to get you! Everywhere I turn there is another terrorist.

01-11-2006 12:46

Democracy "reflects the majority opinion in the population. The percentage of British people that think the iraq war was a "stitch up" is certainly over 50 % ( - in the USA too, so with mid-term elections approaching, thats a factor) . . . . So, when all the "opposition" factions unite around a vote for a near immediate inquiry into how this came about, with lots of people in the square, showing support. . . . ?

One participant's account of a weekend of nonviolent mass civil disobedience - remembering the dead in Iraq, calling for an immediate end to the US/UK occupation, for massive reparations and debt cancellation so Iraqis can rebuild their country free from foreign interference, and for prosecution of those responsible for war crimes.
