Are we only getting half the story from the US and UK government’s about Iraq and their intentions? Probably. But as this article in the Melbourne Age shows the ‘anti-war’ movement are peddaling their own half-truths.
Want an example of simplistic, alarmist and downright dishonest views on the situation from Britain? Then read this nonsense from the ‘newspaper’ produced by the leaders of Britain’s anti-war brigade.
Highlights: “The war on Iraq is about oil-everyone knows it and now the US has admitted it,” “Fear of war is causing panic in the world’s stockmarkets” , “Some 30 hospitals across Britain have been put on standby for thousands of war casualties from Iraq,” etc, etc.
