West only has itself to blame for Iraq chaos

I HAVE no doubt that Tony Blair and George Dubya's ill thought-out, gung-ho intervention in Iraq has created a greater evil for the Iraqi people than that which they had under Saddam Hussein.

No wonder that the whole world is in turmoil and daily spiralling out of any control; where humanity is subjected to savagery beyond comprehension, before being blasted to eternity.

America and Britain, under the guise of that word democracy, want to impose their ideology, (whether they want it or not) on every country the planet. This alone creates a recipe for war, never mind the religious sectarianism that is ripe in most countries.

The sooner Presidents and Prime Ministers realise this, the better it will be for humanity. Yes, it may damage the profits of arms producers, but if that is the price we have to pay for global peace, then so be it.
