    Hearts and minds, eh? That went well, then.

    So Bush is held more responsible for his misdirections in Iraq than in his own country? Neat. :(

    Kind of ironic that we're trying to bring THEM democracy.

    Do you remember "War of the Worlds" - it's a common virus which finishes off the invincible invaders!

    Or Al Capone being finally convicted for tax avoidance.

    I think it is often the case that the largest crimes go unpunished directly, but some seemingly smaller incident brings about the downfall of the tyrant. I see this in evidence over the past few days. Bush & Blair seemed to have gotten away with exaggerating the reasons for war, the lack of WMD, etc, and it is the smaller (proportionately, in my estimation) issue of the torture of prisoners that will prove their demise.

    Mind you, I don't really care why they go, only when!

    Amen to that. Looks like Blair's on his way out already...

    Does it really, or is this wishful thinking on your part?

    He is looking pretty shaky. If Brown takes over, I think GW would be in for a rough ride. Of course, THAT might be wishful thinking, but I think Brown's got the political capital in hand to be able to do it. Without the UK, the US would be shafted over there.
    Like the Brits suggested, Abu Ghraib should have been blown up immediately Baghdad was secured.
