The West did not object when the East was bombed.

When Bush decided to invade Iraq
For reasons of his own selfish thinking,
He created WMD of which
The rest of the world had not an inkling.

He told everybody Saddam was vile
And had trampled in Iraq human rights.
Like a knight in armour Don Quixotic,
He sent marines to start intensive fights.

Such is the power that media wield
That Bush told Iraq had WMD.
Having told this falsehood quite blatantly,
He decided to bomb Iraq quickly.

USA then came to Iraq romping,
And nobody objected to bombing!
