War on terror bogus cover for US strategic geopolitical objectives

Former minister Michael Meacher has blamed the Iraq war on the US desire for world domination.

Mr Meacher also suggested the Americans might have failed to prevent 11 September as it gave a pretext for military action.

His comments come as Britain prepares to send more troops to Iraq to cope with the deteriorating security situation.

Mr Meacher was environment minister until three months ago and has already spoken out in opposition to the war, describing the case for it as an "uncertain fantasy".

Writing in the Guardian newspaper, Mr Meacher said the 11 September attacks gave an invaluable excuse for attacking Afghanistan.

And he said the US Government intended to take military control of the Gulf region whether or not Saddam Hussein was in power because of its need for further secure oil supplies.

It seems that the so-called war on terrorism is being used largely as a bogus cover for achieving wider US strategic geopolitical objectives

Mr Meacher also criticised the British Government for what he called its collusion with the US and its own scramble for oil.

"The global war on terrorism has all the hallmarks of a political myth propagated to pave the way for a wholly different agenda - the US goal of world hegemony, built around securing by force command over the oil supplies required to drive the whole project."

"The evidence again is quite clear that plans for military action against Afghanistan and Iraq were in hand well before 11 September.

First line, I might agree.
Second Line, I will agree Mr. Meacher has lost a few screws in his head.

Is there anything in it which we don't know already?

9/11 is a crisis turned into an opportunity.

1/10th of USA army is in Iraq right now, many of their man killed every now and then. They just don't want this to be another Vietnam.

Iraq has to be made UN's problem and Indians are being requested to go and die there - being potrayed as anti-muslims ... waaahh!!

And our resident experts on EC like the idea - waaah waaah!!

it is good...

that US is atleast following through this time round...20 years back they pocked into Afghan war against USSR...then russia did
not take the responsbility to rebuilt Afgan and USA ditched them and pukis made it into a terrorist heaven.

...if you leave Iraq now in twenty years we have to deal with it again...so it is good now that USA is investing time and money doing same as it did to Germany and Japan after WWII....

...In thirty years Iraq and Afgan can be first world nations...well its just my guess...so dont get worked out!!!

I would agree about europe but I always thought USA bombed the living daylights out of the japs and then left them to rebuild on their own. Only made sure they do not have a military thats all they did.
