Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

a clue about iraq under saddam...

Watching the ABC program "Foreign Correspondent" tonight I caught this comment: "Iraq is largely a middle class society with middle class aspirations." This says lots. It says that Saddam's Ba'ath Party created a majority middle class. In other words, socialism can deliver!

This fits well with images I gleaned during the coverage of the war which showed me that there were well-built four-lane highways with well-designed rest-areas. Hardly the image of a struggling nation. Keeping in mind that the images I saw showed an Iraq which had been under crippling economic sanctions imposed by America for more than ten years. Yep, Saddam was a monster. So is George Bush...

This is, once again, about greedy Big Business investors trying to trash Socialism because they can't make money out of it (because the wealth doesn't go into their selfish mega-rich Armani pockets, but gets put back into public (community) assets and services. D'oh...
