The Australian's commissars

11 January 2007


“Bush accused Iran of providing material assistance for attacks on US troops in Iraq. It is hard to imagine a more serious accusation.”


Oh, I can imagine two:


1. An Australian media commissar* helps shape public opinion in support of a US invasion of an Islamic nation, in breach of international law.


2. The US President orders said invasion: an estimated 655,000 civilians die horrible deaths.


That wasn’t hard to imagine.


·      “Commissar. n.: An official in any government whose duties include political indoctrination, detection of political deviation, etc.”
