John Pilger has lost the plot completely judging from his rant in the Mirror today entitled ‘Blair is a coward’.

About Tony Blair he says: “Like those in the dock at Nuremberg, he has no democratic cover.”

On the US President: “Bush’s State of the Union speech last night was reminiscent of that other great moment in 1938 when Hitler called his generals together and told them: “I must have war.” He then had it.”

On the US administration: “The current American elite is the Third Reich of our times”

On the future: “The next American attack is likely to be Iran – the Israelis want this – and their aircraft are already in place in Turkey. Then it may be China’s turn.”
