> Hi Abi & all, > There is no response till now. But I want to clarify that Sweeney's story it > is just an imaginary one. What did he quote from Ali was nonsense. > Nermin al-Mufti, Baghdad I agree with you Nermin but what we see as obvious nonsense is seen as fact by most ordinary people who come across it. This has enormous implications because it makes a war to oust SH (for this read: covert Iraq into a client state) so much easier. How can a democracy like ours succeed in this genocide against the people of Iraq? Two main reasons: 1) lack of information in the mainstream media - especially TV 2) misinformation (distortion, lies etc) Without that infamous incubator story Bush would probably not have got the vote he needed. Here in the UK the BBC is critical. There is almost nothing about Iraq, no news (eg the resignations of Halliday & Von Sponeck), no documentaries and no specials.
