My delete button was itching as soon as I saw that our gutless correspondent, i.e. "Name Withheld", had struck again. Scott acknowledges that his thinking has evolved. He was in 'Cop' mode and has had the benefit of seeing the effects of genocidal sanctions on the Iraqi people (he mentions the killing of 1.5 million people by US led sanctions at every venue) and the lawlessness and utter disregard for life of the Bush administration. Not to mention the illegal bombing of "Desert Fox" - designed perhaps to draw attention away from Clinton's Oval Office blue dress scandal. Bush was a dope using deserter who has eagerly sent thousands of Iraqis (both civilians and soldiers) to deaths and maiming, all the while polluting the land further with radioactive dust and cluster bombs. Like Saddam, he has killed his own people, by sending US youth to die for lies. Returning soldiers will be psychologically maimed while waiting to see if they come down with Gulf War Syndrome II. Perhaps our Unknown Comically Dysfunctional correspondent will acknowledge that Ritter was right. No WMD's, no WMD program and thousands of deaths. Listen to Scott's words - still fresh and still right on. The US faces an ugly situation with no end game that does not include a long period of death and misery. Meanwhile, Bush sends Kay to Iraq to buy him time to spin his lie around the numbed and distracted American voters. NPR reports that Bush is starting a new PR campaign to justify the war. Now they're talking about Saddam's intent - his desire for WMD's. This is past parody - it is sick and disgusting. I credit Ritter and every other person who takes a risk and stands up and proclaims "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore." Thanks for the complement, "email@example.com" - anyone with half a heart must feel mentally ill these days - as the world seems crazy. A "ding bat?" Is that the best you can do? Henceforth, without a clear identification of Mr/Ms charter.net, I shall delete (getting carpel tunnel from all the deletes). Best wishes to the list (even charter.net) Charlie Jenks On 10/10/03 2:07 PM, "firstname.lastname@example.org" <email@example.com> wrote: > > Scott Ritter? > > Why would anyone with functioning grey matter in their head care in the least > as to what that clown has to say? > > On September 3rd, 1998, Scott Ritter states (during the Clinton > administration): > > "Iraq, today is not disarmed, and remains an ugly threat to its neighbors and > to world peace.
