Ok here is a response from a liberal free thinking 'anti war crowd'. I posted this on a pervious thread.
OK, here are some facts to make the Americans amongst us think, as we live in free countries in Europe we have access to information Americans do not.
The weapons of mass destruction were sold to Iraq by America during the Iran - Iraq war.
Osama Bin Laden was funded and trained by America during the Russian - Afghan war.
The Bin Laden family are connected with the Bush oil cartell.
America has been bombing Iraq for 11 years since the Kuwait gulf war, to the point where they ran out of legitimate miltary targets and ended up bombing sheep stations and villages.
France was not being disloyal in voting against the war, they used their democratic vote in the UN which is their right. They should not have been berated for that.
The Bush election was rigged to the extent that had it happenned in a 3rd world country the UN would have sent in peacekeepers.
Several British military officers refused to fight in the latest war because they disagreed with the weapons the Americans were using that are banned under international treaties of which the US has not signed up to.
Several RAF (Royal Air Force) officers resigned because they discovered that they were told to stand down during their patrols of the no fly zones due to 'ITM's' which they later found were incoming Turkish missions to bomb Kurds, the people they were supposed to protect.
All the key members of Bush's government have connections in the oil industry.
The poorest member of the government has an oil tanker named after her.
Iraq has one of the largest reserves of oil remaining in the world.
Afghanistan forms a natural link with the trans-caucasus oil reserves in the former USSR with the gulf ports.
American oil companies have deals in place to run a pipeline from Trans-Caucasus to the gulf via Afghanistan. The Bin Laden family are involved in this deal.
Weapons inspectors have gone on record as saying there are no WMD in Iraq.
There is no link with Iraq and Al Quada other than they have both been armed and funded by the USA in recent history.
Al Quada attempted to assasinate Saddam twice over the last 10 years.
There are reports amongst the anti war movement in the UK of significant squadrons of US bombers flying into bases in Scotland and parking up.
There is more to this that we shall ever know, what we read in the news is often what the people with the power want us to read. There is an agenda that if we knew the full story would outline a level of corruption never seen since the fall of the Roman empire.
It is all about oil, which is running out. There will be a final scramble to secure the remaining stocks.
Not wishing to get apocolyptic about this especially on this board, as I firmly believe that one of the freedoms we have in not believing religious dogma of any brand is that we finally realise that we, mankind have to sort this out for ourselves.
