Three Cheers for Maradona!
As a supporter of the England football team in 1986, I never thought I would live to say this- but if ever a man has redeemed himself for previous misdeeds it is the former Argentinian striker. By leading the anti-Bush protests in his own country and talking of the need to throw out 'human trash' like the U.S. President- Maradona is inspiring millions of his own countrymen- and indeed millions of fellow South Americans to unite and say no to Bush's proposed free trade area- which will enslave the entire continent. The only winners from Bush's scheme will be US multinational corporations and the President's super-rich friends- which is why of course he is so keen to promote it. And that's also why, pro-Empire lackeys, like the preposterous warmonger Stephen Pollard are so enthusiastic for the free-trade area to be imposed. Read Pollard's demented rant against Maradona in the Times today and you will see what I mean. As a worldwide, popular opposition to Bush and the War Party grows, Pollard and his fellow NWO Fascists are, for all their wealth and influence, looking increasingly beleagured.
