Australia's leadership choices in the 'War on Terror': Jack Robertson contrasts the response to the UN Baghdad bombing of the Australian parliament (weak as it is) with the appalling and frightening response of the News Ltd organisation. It seems that the Greens Bob Brown and the Democrats Andrew Bartlett were the only MPs with the courage to tell the truth, that the UN bombing would not have occurred had the aggression and invasion of Iraq not gone ahead. And for this they are singled out by the repugnant News Ltd organisation which prefers an apocalyptic vision of endless violent conflict combined with a flat refusal to admit that terrorism could be in response to violence inflicted.
