    This, namely because the neocon agenda for years has been "regime change" in seven ME countries as disclosed by General Wesley Clark and many others.

    No, this is just one you like. You like it, they're waking up. You don't like it, they're biased. It's an easy formula to see.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Hans Blix was being run around by Iraq, just like the previous inspectors were. After years of stalling, and multiple times when inspectors were kicked out just as they were about to close in on evidence, Hans Blix claims don't carry any weight.

    Why haven't the contents of the reports I linked to be discussed in the media, as opposed to a couple of inspectors who have been proven to have had an axe to grind, and a different agenda?

    I suggest you read the reports submitted to the UN, as opposed to the curious opinions of Hans Blix.

    OMG, every time you don't like what a whistleblower has to say, they have an axe to grind. No. He had a job to do. The state department ordered him out on the basis that bombing would begin the next day. Even the Downing Street memo acknowledge that Iraqi intelligence was being fixed around the policy (same thing Blix said) rather than the other way around as it should have been. But, you can never reason with a die hard partisan.

    I'm not saying it wouldn't be justified, just that there's no legality behind it. I might even vote for recalling him, but there's no Constitutional provision for that.

    No big deal, you dropped one in there and I responded by dropping another one in there.

    I could have posted a long spiel about the 'lie of the year' but I don't have time to waste on that partisan bull****.
