clap clap blog: we have moved

I find this incredibly frightening. After we find out that Iraq never really imported uranium from Niger, because the evidence it was based on was forged, and that the British evidence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction was plagiarized speculation, it now seems that Bush is ready to bomb countries with absolutely no provocation or evidence whatsoever. One must wonder why Blair is attempting to distance himself from our cowboy President in the midst of an invasion of Baghdad. I think they're fucking terrified that they'll be blamed for any unilateral US military action (excuse me, coalition action) against Syria and Iran. According to the Nation, The UK Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, announced that "his country would have 'nothing whatever' to do with military action against Syria," even while Rumsfeld continues to bitch about night-vision goggles and other weapons of mass destruction.
