Subject: RE: BS: Galloway tears them to shreds
Bunnahabhain.... I'v said this before and I'll say it again, George Galloway was speaking out against the Saddam regime while America and Britain were supporting him and providing him with weapons.

He could never hope to have any effect on the regime by calling Saddam a murderous bastard, which he obviously was.
George is nothing if not a pragmatist, and foremost in his mind was the death being caused by the sanctions regime.

Simply parroting the old tired cliche of George addressing Saddam without any illumination as to his motives is disingenuous, and in the words of our own acknowledged expert Giok, you sir are a wanker...ake
