Rolf Ekeus, living proof that not all Swedish arms inspectors are fools, may have been right.

Ekeus headed the U.N. inspection team that from 1991 to 1997 uncovered not just tons of chemical and biological weapons in Iraq, but a massive secret nuclear weapons program as well. This, after the other Swede, Hans Blix, then director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, had given Saddam Hussein a perfectly clean bill of health on being non-nuclear.

No wonder the Rats think they can get away with the "no WMD" BS - they know it's a needle in a haystack.

Saddam's supporters (Ramsey Clark, ANSWER, WWP, etc.) will be marching on the Pentagon on October 25th.

America's supporters will have our own rally to support our troops, at the US Capitol on October 25.

Click on the image below, which will take you to the SUPPORT OUR TROOPS RALLY thread. The DC Chapter is sponsoring this rally, and we need your help.

America's military men and women and our president need all of you to show your support of them and their mission by your attendance and participation at the rally.

Please, everyone - do everything you can to be in DC on October 25th. And help spread the word!

Thank you for your support!
