Still no WMD...,

Occupation is as occupation does:
In prematurely declaring Iraq "liberated" those who supported the war on such grounds reveal the shallow extent of their interest in liberty.
"About 5,000 Shia Muslims - 20,000, according to one Arab television station - marched through Nassiriya, one of the bigger towns on the banks of the Euphrates, shouting: 'No to America, No to Saddam'.
Like many Iraqis, they are ecstatic that Saddam Hussein has gone but they do not want the US either. They do not refer to 'liberation' but to 'aggression'."
From the Department of It's Not About Oil:
"The US-led war to overthrow Mr Hussein threatens to hand over the management of Iraq's oil sales to the US before a transitional government has taken power in Iraq."
I'm still waiting for the shooting war to be over.
"With my own eyes I saw about fifteen civilians killed in two days. I've gone through enough wars to know that it's always dirty, that civilians are always the first victims. But the way it was happening here, it was insane."
