With the new UN resolution recognising the US occupation of Iraq
being passed, that august institution at long last recognises its
"relevance" -- it is doing what the Americans say. Not only that, it
has enshrined a new maxim for this brave new century -- aggression
pays. For those with a long memory, the rhetoric used to justify the
first Gulf War was that aggression against another country was the
ultimate evil and had to be combated by all means. Thus spoke the
invader of Panama, George Bush senior. His son has exceeded the
father in his lying and hypocrisy. Which is no mean feat.
But wait. An international body has spoken out against the US-UK
invasion and occupation of Iraq. It united both "old" and "new" in
its revolt against the New American Century. Yes, the UK got null
points in the Eurovision song contest.
Which shows the necessity for a social revolution. When the
Eurovision is the only cross border institution which presents the
people's voice on such an important matter as war, you know you are
living in a society whose time should be over!
