Bomb them from a great height

Monty Python’s Terry Jones is confused. He can’t understand why a recent UN report proves that children were better off under Saddam. There must be a mistake. Surely. And no, Jones isn’t wishing for the return of the brutal dictator. He’s merely asking some pertinent questions.

“This, of course, comes as a bitter blow for all those of us who, like George Bush and Tony Blair, honestly believe that children thrive best when we drop bombs on them from a great height, destroy their cities and blow up hospitals, schools and power stations.”

Jones may have a point.
