What about his policies down the toilet?....

The possibility interrogators at the US military prison in Cuba put copies of the Koran in toilets have triggered violent demonstrations in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Rice says she understands and shares people's concerns, but asks Muslims around the world to reject violence.

A camera-phone in every GI pocket ...

... but no pics of the offending charade.

Newsweek backtracks over Koran report

The US magazine whose report of the alleged desecration of the Koran sparked deadly protests in Muslim countries has said that its original report might have been wrong.

Strange. Perhaps the Oz government should send a letter of explanation to the prosecutor. These were legitimate in-terror-gation techniques in a good cause. Probably of the same order as the threats made to Donald Wood's interpreter, in good faith.

The Mystery of the Insurgency

The insurgents' choice of adversary is unusual. But the recent surge in violence at least follows a time-tested pattern. The insurgents are apparently trying to swamp any progress toward stability with evidence and images of chaos. The killing in that time of at least 250 policemen, soldiers and recruits also fits a pattern, since insurgents have customarily made targets of accused collaborators to isolate a regime. Less obvious is the goal in the killing of some 150 civilians.

No mystery here. Since the faithful embedded media fail to show the carnage at Fallujah, etc, we are privileged to view the mirror image. An image of sheer madness, but could they trust Rice, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush Jnr and Beazley Jnr to translate their demands or requests?

Murdoch could spare us these "images of chaos". But that would be censorship!

Rice Visits Iraq, Calls on Government to Move Quickly

Iran's Parliament Authorizes Processing of Nuclear Material
How much polly capital will Bush Jnr have left in his porky bank, if he goes after Iran and DPRK while he is still bleeding in Iraq?

jump? how high?...

The defence of a country's autonomy and territorial integrity is the most fundamental responsibility of government. Any credible claim of national sovereignty must necessarily rest upon the ability to exercise political independence in the international arena.

In this spirit, the Australian Constitution bestowed upon Parliament the executive government exclusive authority over "the naval and military defence of the Commonwealth" and "External Affairs".

But the Australian Greens are hostile to the principles of national sovereignty that were so wisely enshrined in our Constitution. In the world according to Bob Brown, the authority of international organisations should trump Australia's national independence.

In their "Global Governance" platform, the Greens call for a "renewed commitment by Australia to multilateralism as the means of addressing world problems." The document goes on to endorse "a stronger UN capable of dealing with threats to international peace and security."

By definition, multilateralism is antithetical to national sovereignty. A commitment to global government must necessarily come at the expense of a country's ability to pursue its own independent interests. And in practice, the Greens platform translates into an ambitious scheme to enhance the authority of the United Nations while reshaping that organisation to reflect a far-Left worldview.

Hum hum... Yes, agreed with the defence of a country's autonomy resides with the government of the said country... So what are we doing in Afghanistan, what were we doing in Iraq? Being called by ANOTHER COUNTRY'S government that was lying throught its teeth? Is it because we're the lackey of the USA and if the US say jump, we jump ten feet in the air? Where's the autonomy? The United Nations though not perfect, was quite right not to sanctioned the war against Saddam under the American false pretences. In the end, was it in the US interests to ravage a country that had done nothing against the US? Possibly it was in the US interests of oil but totally morally wrong and eventually we're all paying for it.

getting on the truth serum in hind sight...

 

Condoleezza Rice, the US national security adviser under President George W. Bush, said Thursday in an interview that the goal the United States pursued during the 2003 invasion of Iraq was toppling of President Saddam Hussein, not bringing democracy to the Middle East country.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States invaded Iraq with its allies in 2003 not to bring democracy to that country but to topple President Saddam Hussein, former US National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice told a meeting at the Brookings Institution.

"We didn't go to Iraq to bring democracy to Iraq we went to Iraq to overthrow Saddam Hussein… It was a security problem," Rice, who also served as US secretary of state, said on Thursday.
