Remember those bloody looters? Those despicable scenes were a clear sign that the citizen of that country had no respect for law and order. Trying to build democracy there was a lost cause from day one.

Right?

There seem to be an awful lot of people who supported the Iraq war who now want to blame Iraqis for everything that's gone wrong since 2003. They seem to think that Iraqis are somehow less developed than members of the "civilised" nations.

But they don't seem to have asked themselves to consider how the citizens of the U.K. or the U.S. would behave if the authorities ability to maintain law and order completely collapsed. If you're one of those people, there's a wee clue to the answer in the link above.

Err... Is it OK to post pseudononomously?? O.K.

Doh. This surely is the link or the quote you had in mind.

As I always tell the kids as I send them down for breaching their ASBO's "Freedom's untidy".

Yes, perfectly fine.

Rumsfeld just didn't have a clue what was about to happen and that just made it even worse.

But it was more idiots like this I was thinking of today.
