The seeds of war...

I’m sure everyone tuned in for Secretary of State Colin Powell’s UN address. He made an hour long presentation of all the evidence the US Government is willing to show to prove that an invasion of Iraq is necessary. And from what I saw, it looks like we’re NEXT!!!

Yeah, you heard me. Canada will be next in line for US invasion. In fact, I think my girlfriends house will be first. You see she lives on a farm. So if the US thinks that ariel photos of dump trucks and long flat buildings are reason for war, imagine what they’ll do when they see her fathers two combines and his barn! He’s even got chemicals, fertilizers and such, that I’m sure he’s using for biological weapons. If that weren’t enough, I have personally seen a metal tube, he says it’s for irrigation purposes, but I’m sure he’s making nuclear delivery systems. I fear for their lives, and the lives of the entire province of Saskatchewan. This is some scary stuff Colin Powell was showing. They even had a truck with a crane on it, and about ten minutes away, in Ottawa, there is an identical truck, they’re building condos, but now that I think of it, they may be building missile silos!

Honestly now folks, Powell’s presentation was pretty weak. There wasn’t much evidence to speak of. Some testimonials by Iraqis who would basically say anything to keep from being killed by Saddam, some photos of nothing, which were probably taken in 1991 anyway. He did have a lot of speculation and accusation. There was a phone call between two people which didn’t really prove anything, it was pretty vague and circumstantial at best.

As far as the accusations concerning Saddam’s links to the Al-Qaeda are concerned, let’s take a look at a much less complicated series of connections involving one of Bush’s own appointees.

Fortune 500 reports:
“In December, President Bush named Thomas Kean, the former Republican governor of New Jersey, chairman of an independent commission examining the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But FORTUNE has learned that Kean appears to have a bizarre link to the very terror network he's investigating--al Qaeda.
Here's how the dots connect: Kean is a director of petroleum giant Amerada Hess, which in 1998 formed a joint venture--known as Delta Hess--with Delta Oil, a Saudi Arabian company, to develop oil fields in Azerbaijan. One of Delta's backers is Khalid bin Mahfouz, a shadowy Saudi patriarch married to one of Osama bin Laden's sisters. Mahfouz, who is suspected of funding charities linked to al Qaeda, is even named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed by families of Sept. 11 victims...”

I’m not sure about you, but this seems just as damning as having a member of Osama Bin Laden’s network in Baghdad for medical treatment, or whatever the US is saying.
In the words of PixiStix - “It’s beginning to look a little like the Salem Witch Trials, won’t those Americans ever change?”
