The best proof of this is the Americans' continuing aggression against the Iraqi people using the Peninsula as a staging post, even though all its rulers are against their territories being used to that end, still they are helpless. Second, despite the great devastation inflicted on the Iraqi people by the crusader-Zionist alliance, and despite the huge number of those killed, in excess of 1 million... despite all this, the Americans are once against trying to repeat the horrific massacres, as though they are not content with the protracted blockade imposed after the ferocious war or the fragmentation and devastation.
Then there's this:
In 1999, Saddam Hussein apparently invited Osama bin Laden to move to Iraq. In 2000, Iran reportedly "made a concerted effort to strengthen relations with al-Qaida."
And now we have this:

Evidence of intent -- but no WMD program
Details released on report by U.S. weapons inspector
Douglas Jehl, New York Times

Thank you for those references. Does anyone recall seeing Sadam on TV on the day after 9/11 celebrating in the streets? We pounded him and showed what he was in '91. Sadam tried to have Pres.41 killed. Anyone who doesn't think he would have allied himself with ANYONE to take us out is dreaming. We've also found recently that Osama did not have the money we once thought. He was getting support somewhere.
We need to get out of the UN and get the UN out of the USA.
