“Making a Killing from Hunger.”
Global Starvation Ignored by American Policy Elites

How the Iraq war humiliated the British:
The fact that we’re hanging around there still today (over 4,100 soldiers) is a testimony to President Bush’s desire not to lose the fig leaf of his biggest partner in the entire endeavour. Only now, with Obama preparing to move into the White House, can the British finally leave – a reality that Maliki confirmed in October when he sealed the humiliation, tersely informing the British that “their services were no longer required”.
