The oddest reason for invading Iraq
I am speaking at two public meetings later today in Clare Short's Constituency. I have, therefore, hunted up Clare Short's reasoning for supporting going to war in Iraq. I have always found this the oddest reason. One of her reasons was:"We should also consider taking military action if it is necessary to minimise suffering and to maximise the speed with which Iraq is reconstituted so that it gets up and going and its economy is improved."Hansard 30th January 2003 Column 1052 - see link
So Clare's argument is that the Iraq invasion was necessary:so that ... its economy is improved
Does that mean that given the problems at Longbridge (caused by the government) she will be calling for the government to invade Northfield?
