Oh, That Worked Well Didn't It?
So let me get this straight... Geo Bush, John 'Mr Sheen/Mr Garrison' Howard and Tony Blair all invaded Iraq and ousted Saddam because he was denying his people their basic human rights. Ok, we're on the same page so far. Then they install a 'democratically elected' puppet government who are supposed to bring a new era of change to Iraq. So far so good.
Then what happens? The new government promptly rounds people up, throws them into a secret prison and tortures them to death. Oh that's just bloody great. As P Townsend once wrote: "Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss." Bloody twats.
We had the US defense minister here this week. He refused to answer any questions about the actions of the US backed government - no great surprise there. The more things change the more they stay the same.
Don't believe a word of what John Howard tells you. The new terror laws are designed to attack the civil rights of Muslims and anyone who comes from the Middle East. The police now have the power to round up and lock up anyone connected to a 'terrorist' organization, yet they've only gone after Muslims.
Ummmm, little Johnny, how about those people connected with the IRA, just to name but one? Or don't we consider them terrorists anymore? I guess it helps if you're white and Catholic/Protestant/Christian, because then you're clearly not a terrorist group. Make sure you don't wear hats boys, because if you do then you might be mistaken for being from the Middle East. Mind you don't bother asking Howard, Downer or anyone connected to the Liberal Party that question because they'll refuse to answer it, and then you'll be labelled as being a terrorist yourself.
One thing that I did hear this week which was the utter truth amongst the lies - John Howard has led Australia into a new dark age. The sooner this lying little prick is out the better.
