Our president thinks democracy should be spread by bombing the press?
But he was talked out of it at a White House summit by Tony Blair, who said it would provoke a worldwide backlash.
A source said: ‘There’s no doubt what Bush wanted, and no doubt Blair didn’t want him to do it.’ Al-Jazeera is accused by the US of fuelling the Iraqi insurgency.”
Does Qatar – an ally – pose an imminent threat to the United States? Does Al Jazeera? No and No. Yet President Bush thinks they deserve to be bombed? Wow.
