    I can't paste sections of it as it is in PDF format.

    This report reminds me of the Pentagon Papers that came to light during the Vietnam wa.. I mean conflict.


    Thanks! Its pretty hard to see how any can deny that increasing terrorism was a negative effect of the Iraq war.

    It all depends on how one views terrorism.

    With the end of the Soviet Union, a new international bogyman had to be found in order to support the continued growth of the military industrial complex. If we didn't have terrorists, we'd just have to find something else.

    Viewed in that light, terrorists do serve a useful purpose.

    I hear/read between 1933 - 1939 Jews were free to leave Germany, with the aid of the German government, and take their money and possessions with them. And many Jews that remained in Germany served in government and the army.
    You seem to read stuff that distorts. Any there will always be deniers of every event. But the fact remains, it did happen, and there is no excuse for it. I am sadden to see denier hate thought pop up anywhere, as it still shocks me when I see it. Jews are no different than any people. Like all groups, all humans, we share common sins. But that in no way excuses genocide or Germany.

    You're LYING now because I NEVER claimed he would not allow them access. I said he was never COMPLETELY cooperative with inspectors.
    Ummm, you said, "Saddam wasn't letting UN inspectors in."

    That was your lie.

    Hans Blix said the UN inspectors had access to where ever they went:


    "In my 27 January [2003] update to the Council, I said that it seemed from our experience that Iraq had decided in principle to provide cooperation on process, most importantly prompt access to all sites and assistance to UNMOVIC in the establishment of the necessary infrastructure. This impression remains, and we note that access to sites has so far been without problems, including those that had never been declared or inspected, as well as to Presidential sites and private residences." ~ Hans Blix

    I'll check for that declaration of war on Germany. I know I read it somewhere but don't know the truth of it.

    Yes, I checked and found the same about declaring war as you posted here. I understand U.S. was shipping aid to England in those ships. Also, I have different info about who and how the war started. Hitlers main enemy he was concerned about was Communist Russia.

    I've read a lot about Hitler and WWII - WWI and don't "know" the truth of any of it but I am confident there are more than enough lies to go around. Read everything I could find on George Lincoln Rockwell including his writings. Then there is Charles Lindbergh, Professor Revilo P.Oliver, Henry Ford ad a host of others. Plus I am a student of the Constitution for over 25 years and that I believe without any doubt.

    Have you read Mein Kampf? Two version so I hear, I got my version from; Overskrift settes inn her - I've read everything there too (I think), have you?

    Re: Is the world a better place without Saddam Hussein?

    I would say it is about the same. Tensions have risen in other parts of the world, it has destroyed countless American and Iraqi lives, and anyone actually involved in the war, I would say the majority of them don't much care for it. By definition the Bush administration and Bush are war criminals, likely another reason why Bush is the most expensive ex-president to the US taxpayers. Do I think it is better? Yeah, but not in a way that say the world is better without Hitler, if that makes sense.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
