to understand that the UN vote was stacked against George Bush and the USA? Would the whining Liberal Democrats be happier if he (W) laid down on the job like his predecessor did and let it continue for another eight years? Is it time to start supporting this country, our servicemen, the people of Iraq and the President of the US or continue to side with the terrorists and Canada?
The poor Canadians seem to be the only 'no vote' that wasn't getting paid off by Saddam.
he investigation of the U.N. Oil-For-Food program continues to get ever more interesting. A new Senate report accuses Russia's top politicians, including aides to Vladimir Putin of being in bed with Saddam Hussein in the oil-for-food scam. Here's the story.
The former Russian deputy parliament speaker, for instance, pocketed $9 million of Saddam's money, stolen from the Iraqi people and meant to buy food and medicine. Also on the take were members of Putin's political party, who picked up 90 million barrels of oil, which meant profits of $3 million once the oil was sold to Russian companies. So what did Saddam get for his money?
Captured Iraqi government officials say they believed the oil allocations were compensation for support at the United Nations. In other words, Saddam was paying off his buddies on the Security Council, which returned the favor by pushing to relax UN sanctions and oppose the war. There you have it.
France...Russia...you don't think these countries opposed the war in Iraq on principle, do you? Of course not...they were just looking out for their murderous sugar daddy.
nah this cant be true as those countries are so on the up and up.
