Iran: Upping the Ante

14-03-2007 13:16

Can the United States and British governments really be at it again? Can they really expect the public to believe a mirror image of their barrage of lies on Iraq, now applying to Iran? Well, it is all there. Iran is “sponsoring terrorism”. (Was that not Iraq, before the invasion, when there was no known link to terrorism. There is now and the US and UK imported it on the backs of their tanks and with their puppet “government's” militias.)

14-03-2007 10:09

It seems a neocon hysteria has washed over Congress, enveloping even Dems, who are presumably “liberal,” whatever that means. As it turns out, according to the “authoritative” Congressional Quarterly daily report, more than a few Democrats were opposed to Pelosi inserting language in an Iraq occupation spending bill that futilely attempted to prevent the neocons from launching their shock and awe campaign against the people of Iran.

Nice one Greenpeace!

13-03-2007 17:16

Today activists from Greenpeace scaled a large crane by Parliament and hung a banner suggesting that our prime minister is rather keen on WMD. Not an unreasonable assumption when you consider that that Mr Blair wants to spend a mere 20 billion of our money upgrading Trident. Anyone wishing to view the clear and obvious benefits of spending this kind of money on nuclear weapons should type 'hiroshima' into google.
