"In March 2003 Western coalition forces started an illegal war of occupation, which has caused havoc and destruction for over half a million people around the world. Torture is now admitted as a means of obtaining information in Western Democracies. Communities once living and sharing together now massacre each other. The doomsday clock has moved forward from seven minutes to five. We were waiting for the barbarians, but they were already within the gates; they wear the masks of democracy. The world is now a worse place."
