Julie Burchill

May I just single out for salutations, on the ‘anti-war’ side: Pop Stars For Appeasement, Dancers Against Democracy, Actors For Apathy, Fashionistas For Fascism and Jugglers For Genocide. All of them united under that flaccid flag of convenience, Show-Offs For Saddam.
Julie Burchill, again

Portugal’s foreign minister Antonio Martins da Cruz explains why his country sided with the US

Don't you understand this is a peace rally?

The Bush administration is the most radical - in a positive sense - in its approach to Africa since Kennedy.

I know you are Irish, but what is your question?

Stephen Pollard

Jean Bethke Elshtain

I now have second thoughts about opposing the death penalty for terrorists. Why should taxpayers pay for the rent, meals, electricity bills and medical care of a convicted terrorist who kills, maims, destroys and takes away the lives of the innocent?
East Timorese foreign minister Jose Ramos-Horta

Now that rebels are bombing the UN, water mains and oilfields belonging to the Iraqi people, where are all the human shields from Western countries who volunteered to sit on these structures to protect them from the evil Americans?
Peter Kennedy, in a letter to "The Australian"

Other than the bombs they strap to their chests, I’ve got no idea what makes the Palestinians tick.
Dennis Miller

These terrorists killed the wrong people. They killed the good people.

Tim Blair

I've been a member of Amnesty International for nearly two decades, but comparing the relative effectiveness of the methods used for actually DOING something about human rights, I think I'll send my donation next year to the US Republican Party instead."
"Uncle Milk"

The same people who accuse America of coddling dictators are sputtering with bilious fury because we actually deposed one.
James Lileks

Palestinians regard Jewish settlements in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as major obstacles to peace and have regularly attacked them.
Reuters

Yes, Hussein was a monster, but ...
Phillip Adams

But what?

Women supported him, which is amazing. University of California professor Elizabeth Garrett analysing the vote for Arnold Scwarzenagger

Americans are stupid and uninformed. This is very important because in order to win we must understand the way the average American thinks. I'm afraid WE have nothing in common with them.

I had a horrible feeling in my stomach when I saw that Hussein had been captured.
