    Here's an item of interest, could this explain it?

    Prize is 1 million bucks!

    God wisely summed it up: "For the love of money is the root of all evil."

    Very good hunting, SheEagle. I had a feeling that the root was one reason. What a tremendous loss for Blix :rolleyes:

    I heard on the news today that France and Germany have already said they will vote "NO" on the President's March 17th deadline. [​IMG]

    There is no way Hans Blix should be able to accept money from any third party in dealing with a UN investagation. Imagine the corruption that could cause!

    Which makes me wonder exactly what level corruption is at currently in the UN.

    I don't think that Blix can or would accept this money - but I guess when the argument is not going your way that a good old conspiracy theory can always come to the rescue

    I have just read the report - this is covered on page 16 - to quote:

    source

    so it is unclear if this drone is a violation of the 150km limit put on all Iraqi missiles - until that is, at least, established it seems a little premature to call this a 'smoking gun'.

    And, I for one, do not care to wait until a 'smoking gun' kills more people before deciding it really exists. :mad:

    With everything that has happened and is still happening with regards to terrorism; I prefer to err on the side of safety. [​IMG]

    Because they have already declared the development of RPV's - read the report (as you previously urged me to) before rushing to judgement.

    Nobody here is rushing to anything. Everyone involved is dragging their feet, hoping Sadaam will eventually comply. Newsflash, he ain't complying. We have not rushed, but been more than patient. It's time to drop bombs. It's been time.

    We need to wait and see. But, I am sure the UN has more members who are anti-America than pro. The thing that roasts me is they want to use our troops to do their bidding, but slap us down when we feel strongly about something. We should withdraw from the UN... Send them off our land.... stop foriegn aid entirely and bring our troops home. Severely limit foriegn access to us. Make our borders tight. Give the rest of the world what they claim to want. Stop bailing them out.

    the words of a man who is safe in the knowledge that a b52 will not be dropping it's cargo on his family.

    once again you are conflating Iraq and Al Quedia - there is no evidence of such a link.

I have zero security, OK ? I do not know that I won't be attacked. I want a pre-emptive strike, so the bombs won't fall on you, or me. Or our grandchildren.

    And if you don't think Bin Laden and Sadaam are in cahoots, then you are naive.

    You really are naive if you think he won't accept the Nobel Peace Prize. The Nobel Peace Prize carries a $1 million purse. What part of this don't you understand? Get it - no peace in Iraq, no Nobel Peace Prize, no $1 million. Knock, knock! Hellloooo!

    I guess when the argument is not going your way a denigration of the message or messenger can always come to the rescue. :eek:

    Given that he has not even been nominated I think you are being a bit premature here.


    any actual evidence that you would care to share with us?
