Bill Clinton: War against Iraq "a big mistake"
Bill Clinton has articulated the views of two-thirds of all Americans: the war against Iraq was "a mistake".
Now the floodgates are open as more and more will line up to oppose the war. This is the turning point, and I am only amazed that it happened less than three years into the war. Coming as it does on the heels of the Senate's vote for a "phased withdrawal," we should pretty soon see the Americans fighting amongst themselves. So long as they are doing that the rest of us can rest easy in our beds.
It is not just about the sovereignty of Iraq, is it? Iraq is fighting for all those who oppose globalised capitalism and want to see it destroyed. Iraq is our standard bearer and for that reason the flag of proud, brave Iraq heads this posting.
Push on Iraq! Push on and give them no rest! They will not stand if you push on!
