Wow! Could it be?
Seems like a reasonable request by Saleh. Wonder if the UN can stand the light?
Let me see if I have this logic correct, humanitarian help in the form of food and monetary help was given to the administrative staffs and others in power in Iraq and that made them all corrupt....... is that right.... does not compute - does not compute - does not compute - does not compute - does not compute....
Sorry, but I seem to have a short circuit in my logic switch, somethings are just too illogical even for ....
You really must get informed. UN is not necessarily equal to good.
Sorry to correct you Kathianne, but the UN is SELDOME even in the same room with good.
But, we do have our dreamers, and those that worship at the shrine of the United Nations.
Wow, the lengths Bush lovers will go to absolve Dubya of any culpability.
Yeah, the 5 years of rampant and unprecedented corruption, first under Bush's Coalition Provisional Authority and then under the US-backed Iraqi government, is all the UN's fault.
I wouldn't expect it to compute in your narrow little mind. It doesn't accuse Bush or Cheney of anything.
Ahhh ... here we go .... I knew one of you left-wingnut parrots would get it right and invoke the evil, Darth Bush's name. So predictable.
In case you missed it Einstein, the Oil for Food scandal was news BEFORE the US invaded Iraq. An irrelevant little detail to a Bush-hating parrot like you, I know, but fact nonetheless.
Thank God they didn't blame the US for the corruption in Iraq!!!!!!!!! We certainly don't need that albatross around our necks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I do, I suggest the same for you and I realize no organization is perfect but the UN is the whipping boy of the right wing's propaganda effort to always blame others. It soothes and supports your prejudices and those like GunnyL but it hardly tells the full story. But that is the problem with much biased conservative media, it serves only the purpose of political or corporate propaganda.
Iraq and Oil-for-Food: The Real Story By Joshua Holland
"Estimates of the number of children who died of malnourishment and disease under the program range to over a million. In 1996, that tragic scandal was bathed ever so briefly in the light of day when Leslie Stahl asked Secretary of State Madeline Albright on 60-minutes: "We have heard that a half-million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?" Albright responded, "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price -- we think the price is worth it.""
