An interim report is out, showing absolutely no evidence that Saddam Hussein or Iraq had anything to do with 9/11.
And the Administration is falling all over itself explaining why it claimed a “connection” between Iraq and Al Quaeda.

In short, Bush says, Iraq “harbored terrorists” because an Al Quaeda member briefly lived there. And there was a “connection,” he says, because Al Quaeda asked Iraq for help which Iraq refused to give.
But there’s one state that not only “harbored” Al Quaeda but actively gave weapons and money to them, as they worked to overthrow it.
No, I’m not talking about Saudi Arabia (though it fits the definition). I’m talking about the United States of America.
So is it time for “regime change”? Do we have to invade Washington to get it?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    I would disagree that Iran is really the biggest danger in the region or world for that matter. Iran has a relatively stable government with an improving quality of life. In fact there has been a slow but steady trend of reform within Iran. Now Pakistan has a leadership that lacks stability. Korea, who given isn’t in the middle east, is lead by a megalomaniac, has a confirmed nuclear and missle program.
    If Iran really set up the fall of Iraq by turning the U.S. against Saddam then they are a lot more sophisticated than we have given them credit for. With this success, Iran’s leaders know that using non-military means to accomplish victory over it’s foes is much more advantageous and will continue to use these subversive tactics in the future. China, for example knows that it could not win a millitary engagement with the U.S.. Instead it’s used tactics that employ econimic methods. China has been buying American debt, they are even underminding our industrial might by luring American companies to produce products in China. The Chinese have realized that America has no problem selling itself out for cash. I don’t think the biggest threat isn’t a military threat of attack, but the wittling away of the American economy and industrial strength. It is these strengths that played a significant role in America’s victory in WWII and continues to provide this nation with the ability to defend itself.
    I thought the year 2000 was suppose to be the end of the world. How come it keeps changing?

    Iran is the real component of danger in the region that threatens to spawn the Battle of Armageddon as predicted in the Book of Revelation–another constituent is an invading army from Russia–a power vacuum in Iraq could precipitate international actions and reactions that no one now can predict–now is not the time for the U.S. to be led by incompetent liars who have unwittingly set the stage for this predicament which can possibly lead to nothing less than Atomic War–can things be any more dire? American people do I have your attention, yet?

    I find it amusing in a sick sort of way that they are saying that they never claimed that there was a cooperation between Iraq and terrorists, but there were connections. There are connections between Iraq and and the U.S. when we sold them materials to build chemical weapons, or the connections that Bush has with the House of Saud. As far as I can see Bush has more connections to terrorists than Saddam. I find it also amusing that the Saudis were able to find the guy responsible for the Johnson beheading so soon after the event. This guy obvious felt that he had nothing to fear from the authorities and didn’t feel he had to go into hiding. I think also that the saudi government knew where this guy was the whole time, but certain people within the government are sympathetic to the terrorists. I find it interesting that the Saudis rarely take a suspect alive, seems like some one is sure covering someone’s backside.
    America has been supporting terrorism directly or indirectly by giving support to rebel groups or dubious govenrment throughout the world. Sooner or later it never fails, the dog bites the had that feeds it. In the end it’s all about the bling bling. Terrorism has never been more profitable for multi-national corporations. Terrorism, the one industry that George Bush hasn’t failed in!
