The imminent war was planned years before bin Laden struck, but it was he who made it possible.
So, Clinton was planning a war on Iraq then? What is he referring to here?
Enron; its shameless favouring of the already-too-rich; its reckless disregard for the world’s poor, the ecology and a raft of unilaterally
Don't have the time or inclination to debate this in much detail, but one thing you said can't go unchallenged.
Mostly it boils down to, "we're sick of him".
I really don't think that's a valid reason for one nation to try to depose the leader of another.
Not so! I'm sick of Bush, lets depose him, yay!

First things first, you'll no doubt notice that the article clearly laid itself out to be written as a piece of opinion, and with an agenda to comment on UK foreign policy more than anything else. Calling it liberal blather and comparing it to the opinion of pinheads is either misunderstanding it or doing exactly the same thing -- in which case why criticize on those grounds?
Now, not calling you a pinhead, and moving on to a smaller selection of point myself:

I realize what it's *supposed* to be. But most of the article is an attack on Bush, his staff, and his motivations. It isn't unt
What in the world makes you think we're going to war in Iraq over oil?
To depose a government that's ignored several U. N. resolutions -- put together at the end of the last war -- and has destabilized the region.
Assuming those are good reasons (and I realize there's a wide difference of opinion on that), should there not be a war if Big Oil benefits? In other words, is "punishing" Big Oil more important than promoting global stability and practicing international justice?
It's hard to make a credible argument that Israel's just looking for a good excuse to turn Syria, Lebanon, Sinai, or Jordan into a glassy crater. You're right, though, ignoring UN resolutions is a pretty lousy justification by itself.
Of course, with Israel you have to admit two things. First, the existence of the country itself is a destabilizing factor (and pretty much makes the whole situation unsolveable). Second, any solution has to take into account 1.2 centuries of entrenched Zionism within Isr

Funny, you can paint people of both sides in the Israeli/Palestinian fracas with the same brush.
Actually, I was referring to civilian casualties. 300,000 sounds like an estimate of Iraqi military casualities.
Pardon me, but that's a silly statement. Do you want to declare war against a particular political system or against the people suff
In reality, I was referring to allied casualties, but thanks for bringing up the $$$ issue.
