As I mentioned in an earlier thread, Blair was told in an intelligence report prior to the war that an invasion of Iraq would increase the risk of international terrorism, especially against British targets.
He chose to suppress the report, in stark contrast to the fanfare of publicity he ensured his dossiers on WMD received.
Reviewing events over the intervening six months, we can now begin to make judgements about his decisions. An increase in international terrorism - NO WMD!
I don't think the war reduced the terror threat<or image of another one> , but I still think there was a link between Saddam and bin Laden. Clicky
that's because the sensational headline is always louder than the debunking
They're both brown? They're both Bush's scapegoats?
(i have to give you credit for your sarcasm!)
If anything, invading Iraq has only added fuel to the fire. Our military actions in the middle east are the exact reasons why we are targets of terrorist acts.
Of course, pseudobrit! Bin Laden was just a "scapegoat" for 9/11. He really wasn't involved at all. It was probably the Jews. LOL.
"scapegoat" isn't the right word, but Bin Laden and Saddam are what Bush has used to keep nationalism high, focus on domestic issues low, and his own popularity up. I think that's what pseudobrit meant... correct me if I'm wrong. (and oh god, why am I back on a political thread... I swore off these)
The use of these reports only confirm the practice of using selective, raw, unevaluated intelligence by ideologues in the Bush administration for their own political agenda. Here is another take on it:
You have no class.
I think he's got plenty of crass.
Oh, you said...
Honestly, i think you would have reduced the terror threat more by invading us here in switzerland.
Sssssh! Don't say that too loudly because Dubya might hear, and the next thing you know the rangers are in the streets of Geneva!
