This video is called [Australian] Government admits oil is the reason for war in Iraq.
“To everyone who does not believe oil is the reason we are in Iraq! Hot from the ABC news one hour ago.
Strangely (or maybe not) channel 7 and 9 ignored this news story.
So close to an election John Howard has found himself back peddling,(again). Thankfully for Australians who are paying attention to the news so far only one channel has reported the event that in no uncertain terms breaks apart any misconception as to why Australia was/is involved in Iraq. With so many lies, and countless (George Bush has made it illegal to keep an official death count) deaths of innocent Iraqi people, and the needless deaths and injuries of thousands of soldiers, all it has come down to is OIL. What a surprise…”.
From the New Zealand Herald:
Suicide bombing victim begs Howard to get Australia out of Iraq
5:08PM Friday July 06, 2007
SYDNEY – Two years after a suicide bomber left her with a broken neck, burns and bruises, Australian Louise Barry’s wounds are healing and her determination to stamp out terrorism is growing.
But her concerns are again giving pause for thought to Prime Minister John Howard, who was embarrassed when he went to the bombing victim’s bedside in a London hospital almost two years ago.
In a new television commercial launched today, Ms Barry again asks Mr Howard if the war in Iraq is to blame for her suffering and for continuing terrorist attacks.
On July 7, 2005, 29-year-old Ms Barry suffered a broken neck, burns and bruises in the explosion that ripped through her London bus on the way to work.
Now 31, the well-spoken marketing professional, who claims to have no political alignment, appears in a heartfelt commercial pleading for Mr Howard to withdraw Australian troops from Iraq.
She hopes the ad will play some part in helping prevent further terrorist attacks.
“I’ve had a direct experience with terrorism and I feel really strongly about my government’s policies … the war in Iraq is not helping,” Ms Barry told reporters in Sydney.
“Violence only begets more violence. It’s time that we think about some other solutions.
“Our involvement is not doing the Iraqis any good or doing our nation’s reputation any good.”
