the thing that is not right is acting against the UN (which only needed a little more time) in a unilateral way just because it was in the US agenda prior to 9.11. The Bush admin had it all cooked up way before they ever heard of Bin Laden. It only takes a few words on american tv to make it all sound interrelated. It is well known Bin Laden had no connections with Irak. Now he bloody well does. Everybody knows that. If the US (under Clinton perhaps) had waited a little bit longer for the UN to approve of war then you wouldn't have so many people bluntly hating the US now. Then people might have been willing to debate the reasons for war or even listen to the americans. Remember it was not to topple Saddam Hussein that the war was fought even though they have been fighting to make us believe that scandal after scandal after scandal, so it is right to oppose the war. Lies. That is what makes people angry. Other politicians have had to resign for less.
