    You're right, by invading Iraq and colluding with authoritarian regimes across the Middle East they provided a P.R boost to Islamic extremists everywhere. Surely they must be in cahoots.

    I am sure it does not. That was my guess as to the situation. The Express however like the Mail and sometimes the Telegraph are very prone to reporting such distortions without waititng to check for accuracy.

    His apparent account in the BBC appears more realistic to me.
    George Monboit "Neoliberalism is inherently incompatible with democracy, as people will always rebel against the austerity and fiscal tyranny it prescribes. Something has to give, and it must be the people. This is the true road to serfdom: disinventing democracy on behalf of the elite."

    It could also be a simple translation issue.. would not be the first time.

    Saying that though, he does have a point about the hypocrisy aspect on the 10 million dollar bounty put out by the US...

    The need to support Islamic extremism is simply irresistible with you folks, isn't it?

    If a politician in the US declared a bounty on prominent British officials, I can guarantee that he would lose his next election.
    Frankly, I suspect they are an ally in name only, and mostly for the sake of monetary and military advantage. As for your second question, you would need to look at the cultural and religious mindset of the overall populations of the US and Pakistan in comparison. Islam is a religion in which politics, law, and personal practice are barely discernible. The religion dominates most factets of daily life. In the US, many people may practice religion, but the practice is somewhat separated from political life, and is a means for mostly personal growth and/or socialization.

    Members of the House of Lords are not elected by anybody. It's one of those quaint British traditions where they feel they have to pretend these parasites have some purpose.

    And the usual cast of suspects races to the defense of anybody engaging in vile, anti-American actions. As predictable as the sun rising in the East.

    Why is it that you want to disbelieve he said this? At this point, it's pretty obvious that you do.
    If you read any of the middle east or European threads you would know the answer to this one.
