Just for exercise, let’s try to pick the real reason for Iraq war. The suggested reasons are:
- Iraq was close to producing nuclear weapons. This report of International Atomic Energy Agency states that â€œafter three months of intrusive inspections, we have to date found no evidence or plausible indication of the revival of a nuclear weapon program in Iraqâ€?
- Bush said â€œThe British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africaâ€?. There are evidences that, apparently, the evidence supporting Bushâ€™ claim was forged by CIA officers
- Bush linked the Iraqi regime with terrorists and 9/11. At the secret briefing in â€˜01 Bush was informed that Saddam regarded Al Qaeda as a potential threat to his secular regime
- Iraq has 11% of world oil reserves
The homework: please try to pick the most likely reason for the war
After you do, please join NoR11

I can only applaud Lord Goldsmith for injecting credibility into previously thought foolish story about bombing the Qatar TV. I think he’ve sent a perfect personal message about what he thinks about this dirty politics.
But don’t look for any conspiracy coming from WH. Everything goes very simple and explainable if you accept the fact that Bush is just plain dumb stupid fellow. Which is, in its turn, explainable by the fact that the IQ of 50% of the voters is below average, and that they are not split equally between donkeys and elephants. What a shame!

If you apply few words of this insider to the recent history it all will be back in place:
We’ll find a way, we’ll find an excuse- to get rid of [put your favorite enemy here]. And I don’t care what the excuse is. There is no room for rogue states in the world. Whether we lie about it, or invent something, or we don’t… I don’t care. The end justifies the means. What’s right? Might is right, might is right. That’s it. Might is right.
And the good one:
Because there is no room for us capitalists and multinationalists in the world to operate with regimes like this. Its all about money. And power. And wealth… and democracy has to be spread around the world

More budget cuts are approved. The budget policy is very simple:
- Cut programs for lower-middle class retirees who need Medicaid
- Cut on poor who need food stamps
- Cut on student loans for those who can’t pay for college out of pocket
- Spend money on war to benefit oil companies (all oil related stocks doubled in recent years)
- Cut taxes on rich

My answer to this post. Clinton was saying all kind of harsh words on Iraq, but he never ever discussed the possibility of full-scale invasion. He was bombing suspicious sites and enforced the non-fly zones – right things to do. There is a difference between words and actions. Clinton was practical politic, Bush is war criminal.
That was a politics to keep Saddam at bay and I totally support(ed) it. The BushÂ decision of invasion has nothing to do with WMD, with UN resolutions, even with Saddam himself – its reason is oil, and nothing but oil. And it’s a crime and shame to kill thousands of people to get control on their possessions (oil).
About Hillary. Many democrats supported the war. Some of them were brainwashed or mislead by the party of war,Â some of them belong to this party, and some of them also part of conspiracy. I don’t think Hillary had same level of access to intelligence as WH. Cheney and Bush had Wilson report that Iraq nuclear weapon claims are based on forged evidence in February ’02. Democrats learned that only in July ’03. I want to see either Hillary acknowledging that she was misled or better presidential candidate in ’08.

Bill O’Reilly promised to include all anti-war bloggers to his smear merchants list:
Im glad the smear sites made a big deal out of it. Now we can all know who was with the anti-military internet crowd. Well post the names of all who support the smear merchants on billoreilly.com. So check with us.
Bill, please, I want to be there!

Nice article on Pat Robertson summoning the God to attack Dover for voting against “intelligent design”. Pretty funny.
If God is vengeful, he has better targets than the voters of Dover, Pa.
