FYI,

MO-STL-1037-Thm.jpg

Music (A La K - African sound) and Food.
Speakers from Veterans, Environmental, & Labor groups, and about Iran.

We need to take immediate action to halt the impending climate crisis, end US addiction to oil and other fossil fuels, promote green jobs in a clean energy economy and to end the war in Iraq and all future oil wars.

I read these old posts and it brings back fond memories of endless debates with people who were under-informed.
Go research "The Iraqi Liberation act" of 1998
There is even a nice video of a Clinton speach regarding the unavoidable military clash with Iraq..two years before bush was elected.
Bush was an idiot,no arguements there. We were going into Iraq even if the saintly Al Gore was in office. Its a fact.

The justifications given for the war in Iraq have been proved to be completely bogus. In July 2003 I posted The "case" for War going over the points Colin Powell presented to the UN and found them all to be bogus. In most cases the Administration must have known what they told Powell to say was fabricated lies.

They did not follow proper procedure in launching the war. They did not get a Declaration of War from Congress, nor approval from the UN. Secretary General Kofi Annan said in 2004 the Iraq war was Illegal.

There was prior discussion of the need to invade Iraq as I noted in Background material for the second Gulf "War". The neocons were brewing plans all during the 90's and when they came into positions of power in the Bush administration they launched those plans taking the first chance to go into Iraq they had.

There's a difference between going to war for a just cause and going to war based on fabrications, lies, fraud, etc. It's the second which the Bush Administration did.

Iraq had nothing to do with the attacks on the U.S. but for some idiotic reason the people in power decided to ignore the people who attacked the U.S. and attack the people who didn't. And in the process they nearly bankrupted the country.
