The Victims of Liberation

"To initiate a war of aggression," said the judges in the Nuremberg trial of the Nazi leadership, "is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole." In stating this guiding principle of international law, the judges specifically rejected German arguments of the "necessity" for pre-emptive attacks against other countries."

- from John Pilger's first person Indictment of the crimes perpetrated in Iraq. The contrast between this account and what you've seen on TV is overwhelming. Common sense forces you to see that the truth hovers between, but when it lands, it lands right here on the mark. (Thanks again to Jorn Barger's Robot Wisdom for keeping me informed)
