Five years after the invasion of Iraq all the lies cooked up by
Blair and Bush at the time have been exposed for what they were. They cannot
hide the terrible suffering and destruction they have inflicted on the people
And to make things worse they have even failed in their avowed aim of
establishing what they define as a "democracy".
Since the first Gulf War the US and UK have been using Depleted Uranium
(DU) weaponry. DU has a half-life of 1.5 billion years, can result in
cancerous tumors and
genetic mutations, and pass from mother to unborn child, resulting in
defects. This reveals not only the depths of
imperialist barabarity, mocking the idea of 'the rules of war', but
demonstrates with painful acuteness capitalism's inability to regard
The Pentagon is continuing intensive planning for a possible bombing attack on Iran. These preparations began already last year, by order of the President. In other words, the decision has already been arrived at. All that Bush is waiting for is a suitable opportunity to put it into practice.
