We have Dick Cheney telling Ariel Sharon in March of 2002 that the US will Invade Iraq to protect Israel. This is according to Ariel Sharon, as he stated on Israeli radio.
We have General Zinni, Senator Hollingsworth and Patrick Buchanan saying the same thing.
We have Richard Clarke pointing, though carefully skirting complete implication, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict being the key issue to terrorism.
We have retired Brigadier General David writing a letter to the editor in Atlanta this past winter saying this.
We have Chalabi removed once he reneges on his promise to the neocons to complete a pipeline from Iraq to Haifa in order to supply Israel with a never ending stream of cheap oil.
We have Condi Rice stating on national television six weeks before 9/11 that Saddam Hussein is not a threat nuclear or otherwise and he is effectively contained. What changed in six weeks?
We have the PNAC report, created by a military think tank for Israel in the US outlining all of this, including a "second Pearl Harbor" like event.
And now we have General Tommy Franks stating Israel was to be protected and this justified our breaking international law.
Is there anyone out there that still thinks Israel was not the prime motivation for invading Iraq and that main objective included securing oil for Israel first? Israel and persons in our government tied to military and energy contracts are the exclusive beneficiaries of 9/11. Israel hold over 40% of the contracts in Iraq, they receive more "free" armaments and increased funds from the United States and Sharon now has license due to President Bush to completely annihilate the Palestinians. And is there anyone who still believes they are not the primary influencer and decision makers for our defense and international policy?
This just disgusts me! That country is like a tick imbedded under the skin of the US Government contaminating and feeding off of us while it stays secure, safe and warm. Uhg!
