  •  How will that work? (none)
    How exactly do you pressure the biggest military regime the world has ever seen? How do you put pressure on a country that refused to sign the NPF, and has shown time and time again that it doesn't care what the rest of the world thinks?

    The view from this part of Europe is that the Bush administration will continue to invade countries with oil reserves, as long as they can sustain their supplies it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

    I feel massively let down by the US public (the word 'Americans' demeans the populations of Canada, Brazil, Peru, etc), as Bush should have lost the election by 40% of the popular vote. The fact that there was only 2% in it makes me ill, as it's a scary thought that there are at least 140 million US citizens whop either think Bush is doing a good job or too apathetic to care.

    Fist in the air in the land of hypocrisy

      ...if Iraq was just about sustaining oil supplies the realistic thing would have been to lift sanctions. What worries me about Bush is that he is not the traditional right-wing self-interested git; he is a right-wing self-interested git who appears to believe he has a divine mission, manifest destiny etc. Iraq right now is that sense of destiny combined with breathtaking arrogance and neglect of advice. Self-interest alone I could live with. I'm almost starting to miss Reagan.
