Their attitude toward Saddam Hussein is a case in point of this. When Saddam hussein was a Western ally they hated his guts because he was a "Western stooge". They considered him a mad vicious tyrant who oppressed his own people. Shoot forward a handful of years to where Saddam Hussein has become a Western enemy, and all of sudden he is the victim of Western agression and imperialsm, bla blah blah and assorted dishonest claptrap.
As a result of this I made a prediction to my friends about what would happen when Britian and/or America withdrew their military presence from Iraq. As it stands the anti-war lobby blames every problem in Iraq on invasion, and they also continue to play loose and fast with linear extrapolation enabling them to make statements implying we should all feel tremendously guilty about a theorised untestable number that can never actually be shown to be accurate.
So, as rumours abound about possible withdrawal - which is what the anti-war lobby want - where does the doublethink lead to next? Well one thing is for sure, whatever form of words they come up with next it will still all be our fault. That's the way it works you see. Whatever happens in Iraq after we're gone will be - and I have no doubt in my mind about this - traced back to Washington and her "poodle" Britain. If Shias start slaughtering Sunnis it will be our fault, it will have nothing to do with the tribalism that has existed there for years, or a reaction to the dominance of Sunnis under Saddam Hussein.
No. It will be a direct result of the war criminals Bush and Blair, who will, I expect, find themsleves facing yet more pathetically stupid calls for trials of crimes against humanity (along with Israel of course) whilst the same people probably demand some sort of action in Zimbabwe (and then proceed to bleat about how whatever action might occur was wrong because of Western interfence). Dare I say it, I imagine it won't be long before the people currently calling for withdrawal will claim that we abdicated our responsibility by withdrawing. That's about the level of
I have to say though, I'm actually quite looking forward to it so I can laugh at them.
