MADONNA MAKES TIMELY INTERVENTION INTO US ELEC... OH, HANG ON: Madonna has issued a call for US Troops to leave Iraq, just days after the US election. Of course, it's a good idea, but we suspect she might have arrived at the conclusion that the US should pull-out through a rather woolly working through of the ideas:

"My feelings are 'can we just all get out? Global terror is everywhere. Global terror is down the street, around the block. Global terror is in California. There's global terror everywhere and it's absurd to think you can get it by going to one country and dropping tons of bombs on innocent people."

But actually, Madonna, the point is that global terrorism isn't in California or "around the block", is it? And by suggesting that the world is knee-deep in terrorists, you're merely doing the work of the Bush administration for it.

Speaking about the recent US election she said the idea that Americans had voted for George Bush because of moral issues was "spin".

She said American society was "becoming very divided".

"People are becoming very polarised.

"We have people who don't want to think, and who just want to guard what is theirs, and they're selfish and limited in their thinking and they're very fearful in their choices."

So... Madonna doesn't think that gay marriage and abortion played any part in determining the outcome of the US election with all the evangelicals voting in large numbers? Curious.
