''RAF bombing raids tried to goad Saddam into war''
For your Memorial Day Weekend reading: "THE RAF and US aircraft doubled the rate at which they were dropping bombs on Iraq in 2002 in an attempt to provoke Saddam Hussein into giving the allies an excuse for war, new evidence has shown. The attacks were intensified from May, six months before the United Nations resolution that Tony Blair and Lord Goldsmith, the attorney-general, argued gave the coalition the legal basis for war. By the end of August the raids had become a full air offensive."-from the London Times, so you know it must be true. Thanks to Susie @ Suburban Guerilla for this catch.
