U.S. General Abizaid Says 'Of Course It's About Oil'
Oct 16 2007 http://tinyurl.com/32eyzb
Retired General John Abizaid, the former CENTCOM Commander, said on Saturday about the Iraq war that, "Of course it's about oil, we can't really deny that." More from Matt at Think Progress:
Abizaid has previously argued that the U.S. would need "to keep a long-term military presence in Iraq" in order to protect "the free flow of goods and resources" such as oil, but his Stanford comments go much further in pinning oil as a prime motivator for the war.

Australian Nelson: Oil a factor in Iraq deployment
July 5, 2007 http://tinyurl.com/ywcn24
The Howard Government has today admitted that securing oil supplies is a factor in Australia's continued military involvement in Iraq.
Defence Minister Brendan Nelson said today oil was a factor in Australia's contribution to the unpopular war, as "energy security" and stability in the Middle East would be crucial to the nation's future.

Now we know why foreigners get a tad upset when our country joins a coalition to plunder their countries resources with an occuping military that totally reverses their existance that they had been used to.

For Powell, he has allowed himself to be harmed greatly by this iniquitous administration. They have killed any chance he had for being president, and they have showed themselves paternal to the only person among them who seems intelligent and measured, the only one who knows war, who has fought in wars, who has seen soldiers die, and who has been wounded in battle. Ignorance and power are fearful commodities in the hands of old men who have not come to reckoning with their age.

A year ago, Cynthia Tucker of the Atlanta Constitution called for Colin Powell to resign. I then said that her call was a bit premature, but I now call for Powell to disassociate himself from this sinister Bush Administration by resigning and publicly stating his opposition to the warmongers in the White House; they pose a danger to world peace and have been shown to have perpetrated a fraud upon the American people.

Colin would make very good President seeing he has the experience not to pull the trigger in haste.

How many wars have we lost in the past 62 years?
Korea, Vietnam,Iraq, Lebenon{the Barracks LOL},Afghanistan yet we still keep on fighting them.

Let's see, we did defeat the Island of Grenada, we sure showed them who was boss. Ah yes, we also kicked the un holy crap out of Panama with our trillion dollar military.

It's getting to be a joke. The ones we are training in Afghanistan are using us for target practice. How could anyone even think of joining?

"The United Nations charter has a provision which was agreed to by the United States, formulated by the United States, in fact, after World War II. It says that from now on, no nation can use armed force without the permission of the U.N. Security Council. They can use force in connection with self-defense, but a country can't use force in anticipation of self-defense. Regarding Iraq, the last Security Council resolution essentially said,'Look, send the weapons inspectors out to Iraq, have them come back and tell us what they've found -- then we'll figure out what we're going to do. The U.S. was impatient, and decided to invade Iraq -- which was all pre-arranged of course. So, the United States went to war, in violation of the charter."

It's that simple. Ferencz called the invasion a "clear breach of law," and dismissed the Bush administration's legal defense that previous U.N. Security Council resolutions dating back to the first Gulf War justified an invasion in 2003. Ferencz notes that the first Bush president believed that the United States didn't have a U.N. mandate to go into Iraq and take out Saddam Hussein; that authorization was simply to eject Hussein from Kuwait. Ferencz asked, "So how do we get authorization more than a decade later to finish the job? The arguments made to defend this are not persuasive."

This jerk swedenforever will go on lying to people, even though the Iraqi WMD has now horribly surfaced in Syria. Tons of yellow cake Uranium transferred years ago to Canada from Iraq, but according to the Leftist liars, all that was a lie.

wrong Bush's own cabinet regretted showing the UN photos of what they thought were nuclear reactor sites-this was an impeachable action to send innocent americans to death for uncertain evidence and the Iraqi civilians were slaughtered in country that had no part in the 911 incident and no terror cells that were associated with Al Qaeda-youre 'dead wrong'

Norway doesn't surrender
"..for my part [he told the Norwegian Council of State before the Nazi invasion] I cannot accept the German demands. It would conflict with all I have considered to be my duty as King of Norway since I came to this country 35 years ago..if therefore the council members should decide to accept the German demands, and I thoroughly understand the reasons in favor of it, considering the the danger of war in which so many young Norwegians will have to loose their lives -if so abdication will be the only course open to me.."
I rather be terminated than give up my national culture too..
Well 3 million Norwegians would rather die than be Nazis
