I really like how this man has stood up and spoken out!

now the US of A oil companies can go into Iraq for their cut and to increase my inheritance.LOL
It was never about weapons as we all know. Loud clapping for the Hans.
14 Apr 2003 @ 06:39 by spiritseek : Yes
Well as soon as the US puts their man they back into power they can have him so brown nosed that he will do anything the US ask him to.(you are getting sleepy,you want to give us oil,you are getting sleepy)
14 Apr 2003 @ 06:55 by jstarrs : Sure it's about weapons, Martha!
They just zipped over to Syria, that's all!
Hmmm...yeah. Maybe we should just "liberate" Syria too now:
"Disarmament experts do not give the claim much credence. After all, any suspicious convoy or mobile laboratory would almost certainly be spotted by US planes or spy satellites and bombed long before it reached Syria.
But the notion does provide the hawks in Washington with a compelling plot device not unlike the McGuffin factor in Alfred Hitchcock's films---a catalyst that may or may not have significance in itself but that gets the suspense going and keeps the story rolling.
If the Bush administration should ever seek to turn its military wrath on Damascus, the weapons of mass destruction it is failing to find in Iraq might just provide the excuse once again." [link]

I also clap for the Hans. Easy to understand how his "measured" approach made some of our boys in D.C. impatient. Afterall, "measured" might almost be taken to mean "sane" or "patient". Such an approach really frustrates SOME officials I can think of... one of them is named after a plant.
14 Apr 2003 @ 08:21 by martha : I meant
weapons of mass distruction starry.
Francis, you are talking toooo loud about syria. If the republicians have a hint that the french won't back a syria move then off we go to liberate. Keep that accent down (of course I'm assuming you have a french accent).

Oops, doesn´t have anything to do with the thread. *I´m off! ;-)*

Quotes for the day. Why here? Oh, I don't know, it just seemed to me like a timely place for it (I am funny that way ;-)
Anyway, just food for thought---one thought a day, keeps the dream alive, right?
"The face of America has changedwe are now home to persons from every continent and island on the face of the Earth. King once laid out this challenge: We must learn to live together as brothers, or we will all perish as fools. "
---Samuel Berry McKinney, America: Love it and change it
"Immigrants, if we think about it, are the ideal Americans."

Yes I read this today in my stack of emails. Jstarrs your just jesting are you not? Shakti_ma you poke fun, that's in poor taste you wanton wench. I'm just appalled at the US's blantant disregard for humanity outside of the fabulous USA.
15 Apr 2003 @ 07:08 by martha : oh no
Why did I turn on the TV this morning and hear that bushy is now accussing syria of weapons of mass distruction. I need a drink and I just got up. Now another round of posturing by the US of A and Syria. Since we have forces their already and are ALSO still in afghanistan...damn my head hurts now. Need a balm. Between the US of A directing the world and having the same stuff here on NCN is scarry. Lots of fighting and EGO's. At least here on NCN forgiveness can sometimes appear. (for those what want to heal and not point fingers).

Whatever little muslim country doesn't go along with the program (sweat shops), Cheney's gang of billionaires will find a reason to bomb them to bits.
When there's drastic economic disparities between various regions, the billionaires can rake in billions for a small investment in oil machinery, and also setting up factories to make trinkets that cost pennies because of the slave labor, then ship them to Europe and the U.S. selling them for $20 or more. This is nothing new, it's been going on for decades. As they use up the natural resources of South and Central America, and Africa, and Asia, they need easy (cheap) access to other resources.
The problem is most *muslim countries* won't let the capitalists in, so that's why the billionaires ask Cheney to liberate them.
To imagine that health, happiness, well-being and feelings are irrelevant is the true sign of a primitive people.
