FLASHBACK: Michael Meacher, UK MP; "This war on terrorism is bogus"
Meacher siad this back in 2003. Notice how we've not had a single tearra alert since the Nov 2, 2004 election? Notice how, 4 years after the deaths of 3000 Americans, OBL is still running free and various bush officials now hint it's better to NOT catch OBL?

Mr. Meacher was...and is...correct; this "war on terrorism" is bogus.

Excerpt:

The conclusion of all this analysis must surely be that the "global war on terrorism" has 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.
