[Official lying]: World safer since Iraq war, says Hill: "The world had become a safer place since the war on Iraq, Defence Minister Robert Hill said today.... The defence minister said there were always risks associated with conflict but Australia had done the right thing.

"'It's always been our view that an Iraq that is democratic ... that is not being led by a person that is responsible for the deaths of over 300,000 of his own people would be a contributor towards a safer world not a less safe world,' Senator Hill said in Sydney. '... Obviously if you engage in a conflict there are risks associated with that conflict but in the longer term it's always been our view that this would contribute to a safer world and safer Australia.'"
