Meanwhile in Edinburgh, it is hoped that the buzz surrounding Live 8 can help Tony Blair, the man whose mere hint of a smile can immediately make millions scream 'Bullshit!', acting as Robin to Dubya's Batman, with his current PR exercise to 'clean up' the image of the US (and UK) after the conquest of Iraq. The trick is simple: cancel the debts of nations who had given up any attempts at paying their debt to the First World anyway, and make the whole world concentrate on how merciful Dubya can be. Repeat it often enough, and people will soon forget about the debacle in
Vietnam Iraq, an illegal war of conquest the US still not able to win.
