Iraqi Uproar


Scenes of uproar in the Iraqi parliament as MPs discussed whether to free a journalist,who threw his shoes at the US president.
Scenes that forced the speaker to suspend parliament until Thursday.
They came as two of the journalist's brothers said he had appeared before a judge but not in public.

This is the democracy that Bush and Blair wilfully sent and sacrificed British, American servicemen and women too, not forgetting others from the so-called coalition of combined Nations and the many thousands of innocent civilian men, women and children needlessly overwhelmed by the boots, bullets and bombs of the New American Century that the likes of Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld thought they were creating and that is turning out to be anything but. Of course the United States remains the world’s largest economy and easily most powerful country militarily. But its dominance is now visibly declining in a way that seemed improbable seven or eight years ago. Certainly the economic crisis – like its predecessors – will rearrange the international division of labour and with it the world political pecking order, but in ways that cannot yet be predicted.
