So I was a bit funny with Marie on the phone and I really regret that. Sorry 'Rie my darling and I hope you can forgive me.
On my blog travels the situation of a lowlife UK paper printing images of Saddam in his pants has caused some interesting debate. Here's my take on the matter before I get on with my work.
- The Sun (a disgusting right-wing rag) who published the pictures is owned by Rupert Murdoch who also owns the NY Times who also published the pictures. This is a Rupert Murdoch issue and not a UK newspaper one.
- Yes, it does breach the Geneva convention but so does torturing prisoners and the US previously defended that as viable action. Don't forget that the US military leaked these pictures and I believe on purpose thinking that somehow this will teach the Iraq insurgents a lesson.
- It won't. It will make them even more angry and I believe cost lives as they become more determined to knock the smile off the face of the grinning coalition idiots and their high-handed, de-humanised behaviour.
I'll leave you with this picture.
