John Pilger's recent article in the New Statesman does not make comfortable reading, even for those of us firmly against the war in Iraq. Gathered together like this, the crimes and lies, not just of the US but of the west in general, are almost too much to bear. And these are crimes against its own people too (wasn't that what Saddam was accused of?) particularly against our ill-payed, ill-informed soldiers who bear the brunt of this insane policy.
