A pro-Iraq war US congressman who campaigned for French fries to be renamed “freedom fries” is now calling for US troops to return home from Iraq.
French toast was also re-branded “freedom toast”.
“I voted for the resolution to commit the troops, and I feel that we’ve done about as much as we can do,” Mr [Walter] Jones said on US network ABC.
“I just feel that the reason of going in for weapons of mass destruction, the ability of the Iraqis to make a nuclear weapon, that’s all been proven that it was never there.”

Again, too little far too late.
This sabre-rattler joined in the howling bloodlust of the USA, dooming over 100,000 Iraqis to a grisly death. Now he sees the error of his ways and admits that the reasons the US was goaded into war were all lies. It’s a pity he didn’t experience this revelation before his country carried out mass-murder.
Will we ever hear Butcher Blair or his pro-war cronies like Geoff Hoon issue a similar apology? I doubt it.
