Endless war on a wing and a prayer

“Let nobody be in any doubt, this has almost certainly been inspired by al-Qaeda and played out by al-Qaeda and the purpose of it is to cause maximum carnage between the Shia and the Sunni,” Mr Howard said. “It’s al-Qaeda, the terrorists, the people who, according to the Government’s critics, aren’t really in Iraq.”

That would be the same al-Qaeda that Mr Howard, with his fellow Coalition of the Willing leaders, said without any doubt was in Iraq before the 2003 invasion, a fiction concocted as a subsidiary justification for the invasion.

No recognition from Mr Howard, of course, that it was the invasion itself that has put al-Qaeda in Iraq, an inescapable consequence of the slaughterfest he supported. There cannot be any doubt that this man (who, gasp!, has been leading this once great nation for ten years) just makes it up as he goes along.

What a bloody amateur! Endless war on a wing and a prayer.

Do you feel safe?
