From The Socialist newspaper, 31 January 2004

What Hutton didn't ask

So, Tony Blair And George Bush...

Where Are Iraq's Weapons Of Mass Destruction?

"I don't think they existed," Kay said. "What everyone was talking about is stockpiles produced after the end of the last Gulf War [1991] and I don't think there was a large-scale production programme in the 90s."


"...MORE THAN seven months after the declared end of major hostilities, weapons of mass destruction have not been found. No significant pre-war link between Saddam Hussein and international terrorism has been discovered. The difficulty of establishing stable institutions in Iraq is making the country an increasingly unlikely staging ground for promoting democracy in the Middle East...

...In sum, the invasion of Iraq failed to meet the test for a humanitarian intervention. ...Intervention was not motivated primarily by humanitarian concerns..."

(War in Iraq: Not a Humanitarian Intervention, Human Rights Watch, World Report 2004.)

NO WMDs, no terrorist links, no democracy and no humanitarian reasons. The real reason for Bush and Blair's war on Iraq is the imperialist aims of the US and British governments - oil supplies and the geo-political control of the Middle East.

That's why we say; bring the troops back, support a genuine democratic workers' and peasants' government in Iraq, build an international socialist movement to end poverty and national conflict.
