Bush Sought to Poison Europe

Let it not be said that Bush does not punish his enemies.

With Europe snubbing his pet war in Iraq, Bush got his revenge by collaborating with his corporate chemical friends to poison its citizens.

When Europe planned to test materials for danger to the public, the administration worked with corporate allies to kill the plan:

The office of the United States trade representative asked the industry to develop themes the administration could use to discourage the European Union from adopting the new testing program, according to an e-mail message dated April 4, 2003, and obtained by the House investigator.
Let's be serious-- more children die each year from poisonous chemicals in the environment then died in the World Trade Center attack.

The hysteria over terrorism makes us ignore other threats that, if we addressed them thoroughly, would save more lives at lower expense than we are dedicating to Iraq and other hot wars.

A "war on pollution" would save far more lives.

Too bad Bush is siding with the corporate terrorists on that war.
