War on Terror - Propaganda and Reality

Introduction


What the war on terror is really about. It's neither a crusade against Islam (as Bin Laden would have us believe) nor a war in defence of freedom and democracy and against torture, terrorism and dictatorship (as Bush and McCain tell us). It's a fight for power and profit - particularly through control of oil and gas reserves and pipelines - and the actual similarities with World War Two are not the ones usually pointed to.(last edited August 2008)
