A world statesman has told the truth about Britain.,3604,1566648,00.html

Malaysia's former leader Mr Mahathir told a human rights' conference on 9 September 2005 that the UK and US were "state terrorists".

Mr Mahathir blamed them for thousands of Iraqi civilian deaths.

"The British and American bomber pilots came, unopposed, safe and cosy in their state-of-the-art aircraft, pressing buttons to drop bombs, to kill and maim," Mr Mahathir said.

"And these murderers, for that is what they are, would go back to celebrate 'Mission Accomplished'.

"Who are the terrorists? The people below who were bombed, or the bombers? Whose rights have been snatched away?"

At a news conference later, he said:

"If you terrify people then you are a terrorist, and the people of Iraq are terrified of being bombed. They (the US and Britain) are state terrorists."

When in power, Mr Mahathir was a US ally in the fight against terrorism but bitterly opposed the Iraq and Afghan wars.

The US administration launched the Iraq invasion because it alleged Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction which "we all know was a lie", he said.
