http://www.cbc.ca/fifth/ Patriot missles have a success rate of 0 % and scud launchers on ground that were reported destroyed turned out to be things like milk trucks, totally launch sites destroyed zero, total scuds hit also zero.
Can anyone ever believe anything that America has to say?
The US reports that support for the war on Iraq is growing ..
In reality there is very little support for their war on Iraq, other than Tony Blair but senior members of the prime minister's cabinet and many within his party are not convinced, and oppose military action, so he is kind of standing alone on his support for the US.
I wonder how much this support has meant in actual bribes given to Blair? I watched a news show last night where one of Bushes minions was informing someone in France that support for the war was considerable and growing in other countries -
Germany, France, Canada, China, Japan are NOT in, neither are Turkey, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia says they might let US use their bases, but they arent on board either, Egypt isnt sold on the deal, Iran opposes a war with Iraq because they think they will be next on the hit list,(Perle gave an even more provocative interview to the Guardian newspaper, in which he said Iraq was only the first in a series of countries that the US would target. Others included Iran, Syria and North Korea.)(Perle declared, ďThere are some people you canít do deals with. You could not do a deal with Hitler, and you canít do a deal with Saddam Hussein or with North Korea)
Jordan has other issues they would rather deal with and isnt supporting this war. Suyria might be interested if it could use the opportunity to press for the return of the Golan Heights from Israel. Australia is considering all the info and Russia is wondering if it would mean the US would force Iraw to settle up the huge debts owed to them - not likely. But Bush says that support is growing ..
I really liked Powells comment ""Saddam will stop at nothing until something stops him," Was he actually talking about SADDAM? Or did he mean BUSH? ....."Given Saddam Hussein's history of aggression, given what we know of his grandiose plans . . . and given his determination to exact revenge on those who oppose him...." Again I must ask - does he mean SADDAM or BUSH?
