Some comments in my Glastonbury email list in the UK:
"yep that's it.
it's over bar the shouting.
live pictures now showing US soldiers have completely taken Baghdad - Iraqis are coming out and swamping them and saying things like 'America is great'
only about 30,000 iraqis killed and only about 1300 civilians.
ok so there's no Saddam and there never was any WMD but they've done it.
They control the oil and the middle east and they've shown that they are the best and most civilised nation on Earth.
God Bless America and Tony Blair is absolutely guaranteed to be elected again."
"just been watching one of those moments in history similar to the Berlin wall as they pulled that statue down.
war is over. can we bring the troops home now please?
I accept now that the peace marches did absolutely nothing - zilch - and they won't ever do again. those days are gone.
but I am glad for the Iraqi people, I am glad that this war is as good as done.
We have seen the destruction of the UN and international law. We have seen that democracy is fluid and easy to manipulate. We have seen the New World Order in action with all it's troops, lies and propaganda and we can see what is in store and there's not a damn thing we can do about it.
so we might as well accept it and at least have a peaceful life of our own.
The US will take over the world. that is certain and at the UK will be with them every step of the way.
poor old France."
"As someone pointed out in the Guardian, just because someone
amputates a leg neatly, it doesn't mean it was necessarily the best thing for the patient.
Anyone betting on law and order in Iraq over the next days and weeks?"
