12 years of UN diplomacy failed. The time for talk is over and the time for action is here. The Iraqis have just finished beating and murdering a 15 year old girl for taking chocolate from British soldiers. Lovely folks,eh?
It is about far more than oil my friend.

Can I ask why it is so believable that a US missile went astray, but not an Iraqi one?@Toadborg. Those eyewitnesses who "heard" the plane, could they have been Iraqi? Wouldn't the Iraqis have been firing a missile at the plane? Could that missile have malfuntioned?
Like I have said before, neither side will tell the whole Truth.

Fair enough, i will await the official report before judging.........
(though to be pedantic it would still be our fault if it were one of their missiles because they wouldn't have been firinf it if we weren't invading them.....)
Originally posted by Aladdin The likeness of an American missile rather than an Iraqi one
The allies are not doing themselves any favours by trying to brush aside those claims and say that it was "probably an Iraqi missile" without providing any kind of evidence to support their allegations.
Originally posted by Aladdin Perhaps by admitting they don't know the truth about what happened rather than trying to blame the Iraqis for everything from the loss of Paradise to the extinction of the dodo.
Originally posted by Man Of Kent Again you criticise one, but not the other
Seriously, you assume that if the US said "actually we don't know" that you and the media would be satisfied. Somehow I find that hard to believe - claims would be made that they did know, but as they were guilty they just wouldn't admit...

As for fault..Well we wouldnt be invading if saddam had abided by the ceasefire terms. Those terms wouldnt have been imposed if he hadnt of invaded kuwait, he wouldnt have invaded kuwait if it hadnt been partitioned by the british etc etc etc..How far back do you wanna go with the blame?
Does the same logic apply to US inflicted deaths? If Saddam had complied fully with UN resolutions, the US wouldnt have killed those children in the van yesterday.
these are the obvious consequences of an invasion
