    Default George Galloway's friend

    This morning The Independent on Sunday has an article that had me roaring with laughter. I'd love to see Senator Coleman's face when he sees this.

    The Jordanian businessman at the centre of claims that George Galloway secretly bought oil from Saddam Hussein has a major contract to sell US military technology in Iraq, The Independent on Sunday can reveal.

    Fawaz Zureikat has been accused by a US Senate committee of orchestrating illegal oil deals with the Iraqi dictator allegedly on behalf of Mr Galloway, the Respect MP for Bethnal Green and Bow, and a charity they jointly ran. Both men deny the claims.

    (..)

    It has now emerged that a firm run by Mr Zureikat, 51, and other members of his family, has the exclusive rights to sell highly sensitive military encryption technologies made by a US firm in Iraq.

    Their company, Middle East Advanced Semi-conductors, was awarded the contract in January 2004 by the US firm Transcrypt to sell its specialised chips to the Iraqi military, police and government. The same chips are heavily used by the US army, other major US federal agencies and other secret military clients in the Middle East.

    I think this runs deeper. Of course Galloway is a vain man and I have no doubt that he has some slimy views, but at least they're his own. What Senator Coleman didn't understand, in fact what I believe utterly eludes him, is that there are people and even politicians whose views and policies are not entirely driven by special interests, kick-backs, influence-peddling and brown envelopes.

    Gorgeous George strikes again.
    Cowardice is to run from the fear;
    Bravery is not to never feel the fear.
    Bravery is to be terrified as hell;
    But to hold the line anyway.
