    I don't buy it.

    Iran has "wmd's" too. So does the USA. As long as they aren't using them.

    I heard that Saddam invaded Kuwait because they were horizontally tapping his oil. It does seem strange that he would invade one of his neighbors for no reason.

    I can't pretend to have all the answers. I just know that America is very good at spreading propoganda and I know we don't get the same news as International news. So maybe we are being brainwashed and lied to?

    We are definately the modern day version of Rome or Great Britain. Can anyone say either of those past superpowers were innocent and richous in every situation? Marching into 3rd world countries, stealing their resources, exploiting them, etc.

    After 8 years of Bush, I'm beginning to question it when Condy or Chaney says another country is "evil". Can you blame me?

    I believe that Saddam's uranium was intended for the manufacture of tableware made out of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium_glass" target="_blank"> uranium glass</a>.

    These lovely dishes were then going to hold mustard. In other words, Saddam was hoping to manufacture radiantly lovely mustard glass.

    Of course, the lying Zionist imperialist crusader Western media twisted it all around, as usual.

    Got any more easily recognizable websites that we can check this out on?

    I never heard of either of these.

    AFP looks pretty dubious to me


    Looks to me like anyone can post anything there.<SCRIPT type=text/javascript> var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ?

    Let it die, if this were true you would have heard about it probably a million times or more from the neocons who started this illegal war. I do understand there are rocks there and much sand which could constitute WMDs if placed in the engines of America or thrown from tall buildings.


    A vote for John McCain is a vote against the fundamental principle of America, the right of the individual to lead their life privately without the government interfering.

    I suggest you learn some facts. Saddam Hussein Invaded Kuwait because he claimed it was the 19th Province of Iraq. It had nothing to do with Kuwait stealing anything.. Now lets think about this for a moment, if Kuwait oil wells were stealing Iraq Oil, what would happen to Iraq oil when he set those wells on fire?

    And yes I can blame you for being a stupid person that does not know facts or reality.

    Ohh and explain how we stole anything from Iraq. Go ahead provide some evidence we took any oil from them. I won't hold my breathe though waiting.

    This is funny as shit, every time you post it you prove what a retard you really are. The Democrats are the ones that create laws that restrict citizens, they not the republicans are the ones that create laws that remove rights and privileges. All one has to do is glance back through our history for the facts on that issue.

    Obama is a socialist turd and a crack pot. A vote for him, is a vote for the destruction of this country.

    Hey Midcan5. I thought of something yesterday when a neo con poster scoffed off my "proof" because it came from a "liberal" source of media. I asked him, "what media do you approve of"? Since they think MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, Time, NY TIMES, Rolling Stones, etc. Since they think EVERY media is liberal, I want to know what sources they approve of. I can't wait to hear back from them.

    And, if I'm right and the mainstream media has been taken over by rich corporations who's intent is to turn the media pro GOP, what chance is there that we will ever find anything that paints them in a negative way?

    So of course all my sources will be "liberal". The "conservative" media sure isn't going to tell us the truth. Right?

    Herfe is the same story from another "dubious" site:

    U.S. removes 'yellowcake' from Iraq - Conflict in Iraq - MSNBC.com

    MSNBC has always been suspect in my view.

    The Iraqi government is to award a series of key oil contracts to British and US companies later today, fuelling criticism that the Iraq war was largely about oil.

    The successful companies are expected to include Shell, BP, Exxon Mobil, Chevron and Total.

    Non-Western companies, notably those in Russia, are expected to lose out.

    The technical support contracts will give the companies access to Iraq's vast untapped oil fields. Oil production in Iraq is at its highest level since the invasion in 2003. The Iraqi government wants to increase production by 20%, as the country has an estimated 115bn barrels of crude reserves.

    The US state department was involved in drawing up the contracts, the New York Times reported today.

    It provided template contracts and suggestions on drafting but were not involved in the decisions, US officials said.

    Democratic senators last week lobbied that the awarding of the contracts should be delayed until after the Iraqi parliament passes laws on the distribution of oil revenues.

    Frederick Barton, senior adviser at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, told the paper: "We pretend it [oil] is not a centerpiece of our motivation, yet we keep confirming that it is."
    Last year Alan Greenspan, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve said: "Everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil."
