Spot the Danger......

What have the following got in common:

  • Kim Jong-il
  • Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and
  • Hassan Nasrallah?

According to a poll conducted by ICM, they are all considered to be less of a danger to world security than George W Bush. In the UK, Bush (75%) is only narrowly beaten by Osama Bin Laden(87%). Even in Israel, there is growing signs that Bush is the greatest threat to world security.

There is no doubt that the last 6 years have exposed a failed foreign policy founded on a few crackpots who think they can impose their will on others. Their time is running out. Hopefully, the upcoming elections will put the final nail in the coffin of what has essentially become a disastrous experiment of epic proportions. For that to happen, the people of America need to be brave in the face of the right-wing media onslaught and send a clear signal that when politicians ignore international law, they will be punished.
