The sacrificial U-2

The Christian Science Monitor has an interesting story, about Bush and Blair collaborating to find an excuse to invade Iraq. Apparently one of their ideas was to paint an american U-2 spyplane in UN colours in the hope that Saddam would shoot it down, providing a pretext under which they could invade.

And in case you were wondering, the U-2 is not an unmanned aircraft, meaning that our glorious leader was actually considering killing his own pilots to justify his war. Thankfully, this didn't happen, but that it was even on the table is just sickening.

Naturally, this isn't news in the USA.
