We got your moral clarity right here

Well, support for the war is rising in various parts of McWorld, even as we bomb innocent civilians. Now our leaders are saying that post-war Iraq should be run as a US colony, without those meddling UN euroweenies undoing all the good that we're doing. And Dick Cheney's Halliburton have been handed an Iraqi contract without any bidding. But this isn't about oil, it's about weapons of mass destruction and terrorism and liberating the Iraqi people so that they can vote and eat Big Macs and buy Britney Spears CDs and Nike sneakers like any free people. Meanwhile, it looks like those silly, ungrateful Iraqis don't want to be liberated, with some even returning from overseas to fight. Not to worry; we'll liberate them yet, even if we have to kill half of them in the process. God Bless America!

Meanwhile, all's well in the Land of the Free, as long as you're white and fervently nationalistic. a US teacher claims in her LiveJournal that Muslim students have disappeared, along with their families, without a trace. Meanwhile, other schools cancel exchange programmes with Germany, over the Germans' opposition to the war. And the spirit of McCarthy lives on; failure to show the proper amount of bloodthirst may have unpleasant consequences.

Whoops! Looks like he just moved to Holland. http://www.livejournal.com/users/angiej/61349.html

Oops! Colour me thoroughly discredited, just like Robert Fisk.

Though the question remains: why are all these Arabs hurriedly emigrating from the Land of the Free right now? I doubt his parents moved to Holland just to sample the ganja.
