Lebanese Druze leader Walid Jumblatt: “It is strange for me to say it, but this process of change has started because of the American invasion of Iraq. I was cynical about Iraq. But when I saw the Iraqi people voting three weeks ago, 8 million of them, it was the start of a new Arab world. The Syrian people, the Egyptian people, all say that something is changing. The Berlin Wall has fallen. We can see it.”

Australian Labor leader Kim Beazley: “As far as I can see, this situation in Iraq has got little to do with it.”

    1. Please, Tim.  Everyone knows it is the duty of portly European men 10,000 miles away from the scene to tell the little brown wretches what the LBW are really thinking.  Why. it’s the New White Man’s Burden.

    1. Mr. Beazley seems like the type who would allow any liberal lefty to piss on his leg so that he could say it’s raining.

    1. It’s a shame that so many people can’t admit something good is happening.  They are the opposition first, and truth-tellers and patriots last.  Who would have thought that the British Conservative Party would be aligned with the French, and the British Labor Party with the Americans on the issue of Iraq?  The reason is, of course, that if the other party supports it, we have to be against it, even if the other party is right.  Very statesman-like.

    1. “As far as I can see,” says Australias very own myopic Mr Magoo, Bumble Bee Beazley.

    1. As far as I can see the ALP seems intent on continuing with the sort of crap comments that got them where they are today.
      Not to mention more Senate carry on (for a few months only) designed to do what? It’s sham politics by the incompetent “natural party of opposition”, assisted by micro-parties in tinfoil hats.

    1. Somehow I’m reminded of the chap who said, “If you were blind, you would have no sin; but you insist that you see, and thus your sin remains.”

      When I hear questions on the war from the right, I never see rejoicing over the dead soldiers or a desire for more of them.  But some people are actually glad when things go wrong, because they at least are right.  It’s almost like Milton – better to be right in Hell than wrong in Heaven.  How do these people even stand what comes out of their own mouths?

    1. Apparently, Kim passed on the Kool-Aid. A shame, really, when you are too stupid to jump on the bandwagon after it has come by three or four times.

    1. Go easy on the insults, rog2.

    1. Tell me, was Kim wearing his special “I really, REALLY mean this” frown when he said it?

    1. There must be something about the Labor Party leadership post that instantly turns people’s brains to mush.

      Or maybe: Labor leaders say the darndest things!

    1. Niall Cook says it’s a complete coincidence that all this is happening after the US invasion….

      Posted by Tex on 03/08 at 07:02 PM • #


  1. Yeah, and Cook probably thinks it was a complete coincidence that the Third Reich collapsed eleven months after the invasion of Normandy.

    The coincidnces just pile up, don’t they?
