Reader feedback: War not justified

Slovakia to stand by US in Iraq attack, News briefs, Vol 8, No 46, Dec 2 - 8

Bush couldn't give a toss about the people of Iraq. He just needs a more compliant bully to keep the oil supply going. He also badly needs a war in order to keep his job, as have most American presidents. And how can Slovakia support a war which has no justification whatsoever, unless you call keeping the world's most dangerous man in power justified.
