Editor in chief Ali al-Saqqaf says in his column this week that British protesters demonstrating in Belfast before the recent meeting of Bush-Blair had described Bush as the thief of peace and thief of oil. So Bush in the eyes of many Europeans is no longer the saviour seeking the liberation of the Iraqis from the Iraqis and that his merchandise of lies does no longer find publicity. The same can be applied to the American army commanders and American media supervised by the American intelligence. All of them have taken lies as a profession. Because of their many lies no one believes them any more even if they said something true. When they announce that their casualties reached 79, they come the next day to announce that they have lost another 8 of their troops. No one believes their lies except Arab rulers as if they fear that if the Iraqis scored victory in this unparalleled battle their peoples would punish them for their defeated stands.
