    When Tony Blair took office following a landslide victory in 1997, few commentators would have suggested that this man would be willing to drag his country into a war of unjustified aggression against a people that have done no harm to the British public. Nor would anyone have surmised that a Labour government would hitch its political fortunes to a shabby cabal of fanatical neoconservative Zionists working to make real their much-touted biblical Armageddon. And no one could have predicted that Blair’s nominally “Christian” administration would transform itself into a licentious club of flamboyant homosexual cruisers and out-of-control paedophiles.

    But it is now becoming shockingly clear that the slavish adherence of Tony Blair and Jack Straw to the Bush line on Iraq may have less to do with principled arguments, and much more to do with the fear of CIA and FBI revelations that would make them two of the most hated politicians in modern British political history.

And I'm saying that the before-the-hostage-thing period was that of the Shah, because that's when it was.

    I've never seen or heard of the site before. I was looking for a crisp description of the designers of New Labour acting against the interests of the UK, which they did, and the CIA looking for young up-and-coming foreign politicians they could lever up the ladder to power once they had compromising information on them, which they're documented as doing in various times and places. The two paragraphs I found were adequate to put the idea across. The rest of the story the page carries has been hovering in the background of the UK's collective consciousness for over a decade. I'd be delighted to see it explode into the courts while the actors are still alive to face the accusations.

    'I haven't cared for France since the French Fries Protest' would then indicate I was 'pro' whoever may have been running France before the French Fry protest... am I understanding you correctly?

    Be sure and wear a cape when you make these great leaps of yours dear.. I'd hate to lose you to a thought.

    Seriously though, at that great age, my concerns were birthing babies and working day to day. Don't you remember how funny everyone thought it was that Amy Carter was said to discuss global issues at supper?

    Yes. Why else would you bother to pick out the moment of the French Fries Protest unless it marked a change in your attitude?

    Or it could indicate I hadn't given them a thought at all up to that point(and I say that having taken french in high school).

    Freedom Fries.. ahhh the memories that brings back

    And wasn't the same person running France before and after?

    I should say not - nobody can remain the same person after being subjected to a mass coordinated hate campaign across America. Usually, of course, a person ends up dead, but even the survivors never come out of it unscathed.

    President Jacques Chirac, it would have been. That chap gave the British more tabloid newspaper headlines than most people. "I'm alright Jacques", over French farming subsidies, caused mirth. That was The Sun, which tends to revel in this sort of mire-pit. Here's their take on the Freedom Fries story...
    We took copies of a French edition of our newspaper labelling Chirac as Saddam Hussein's whore.

    Describing his actions as those of a 'Paris harlot', The Sun argued he was as big a threat to the civilised world as Iraq's tyrant.

    Sadly but predictably, the poor, misled French people backed their spineless president to the hilt. On a sunny Champs Elysées, student Angelique Roulois, 18, nearly choked on her baguette when she saw our headline.
