From The Socialist newspaper, 5 October 2006

It's official -

Bush's 'war on terror' fuels terrorism!

A US government report has admitted that the Bush administration-led war and occupation of Iraq has fuelled terrorism. The report was compiled from 16 government agencies back in April but has only now seen the light of day.

The report says the Iraq occupation has become a "cause celebre" for Islamist terrorists worldwide. CIA chief General Michael Hayden concluded that: "New Jihadist networks and cells, sometimes united by little more than their anti-western agendas, are increasingly likely to emerge," and that "if this trend continues, threats to the US at home and abroad will become more diverse and that could lead to increasing attacks worldwide."

This contradicts US president George Bush's claim at the recent 9/11 anniversary that: "The world is safer because Saddam Hussein is no longer in power."

The report comes as no surprise to socialists who have long argued that the Iraq war would increase political instability in the region and fuel terrorism against the West. It also removes, along with the fabricated 'WMD threat', the other argument by US and British governments for 'regime change' in Iraq.

Moreover, it means that the tens of thousands of Iraqis killed since the 2003 war and the hundreds killed in the Madrid and 7 July London and other bombings are the victims of Bush and Blair's imperialist aims.
