We already knew that there were no WMD in Iraq, contrary to what the UK government said. Now we have the confirmation that there was no link with al-Qaeda either contrary to what the US government said. What a mess and what a waste of human life and resources! But more importantly what a travesty of so-called Western values of freedom and democracy!
One Nation under God, indivisible, With Liberty and Justice for all, they say. Indeed, to the detriment of other nations' liberty and justice. Note that I have nothing against the American people, as I understand that the People are not the same as the Government of George W Bush, in the same way that the British People are not the same as the Government of Tony Blair. Isn't it time that the democratic process in both countries be put to work and make the clowns that are at the helm accountable for what they did, before more damage is done? Apparently, this is already happening in the UK and I wish it happened in the US.
