EXCLUSIVE: BUSH PLOT TO BOMB HIS ARAB ALLY
Madness of war memo
By Kevin Maguire And Andy Lines



PRESIDENT Bush planned to bomb Arab TV station al-Jazeera in friendly Qatar, a "Top Secret" No 10 memo reveals.

But he was talked out of it at a White House summit by Tony Blair, who said it would provoke a worldwide backlash.

Yeah, right. This is absolute shite. The Mirror is a tabloid newspaper with zero journalistic integrity. Why would we bomb a country where we have tens of thousands of our own troops stationed. It amazes me that people will believe anyhing that is put in print, but Bush is always a liar. Dude, put the Kool Aid down.

i'm going to assume that if anything was indeed said that it was merely said in jest... now wether or not the president of the united states should be cracking jokes like that, that's another argument all together.

but i can't possiably fathom that it was a serious plan.

Well, look at it from another POV.

When NATO attacked Serbia in the Kosovo conflict, one of the first buildings attacked was related to the Serbian media. If Bush genuinely believed al-Jazeera to be a "propaganda network," then Bush very well could have advocated its attack too.

And it would also explain his painful lack of understanding of the media. Western media is a cheerleader for the West, while Arab media is a cheerleader for Arab causes. All media merely flatters its audiences.
