by Flemming Funch

Quote from veteran British cabinet member Robin Cook's excellent and very readable resination speech:
"We cannot base our military strategy on the basis that Saddam is weak and at the same time justify pre-emptive action on the claim that he is a serious threat. Iraq probably has no weapons of mass destruction in the commonly understood sense of that term - namely, a credible device capable of being delivered against strategic city targets. It probably does still have biological toxins and battlefield chemical munitions. But it has had them since the 1980s when the US sold Saddam the anthrax agents and the then British government built his chemical and munitions factories.

Why is it now so urgent that we should take military action to disarm a military capacity that has been there for 20 years and which we helped to create? And why is it necessary to resort to war this week while Saddam's ambition to complete his weapons program is frustrated by the presence of UN inspectors?

I have heard it said that Iraq has had not months but 12 years in which to disarm, and our patience is exhausted. Yet it is over 30 years since resolution 242 called on Israel to withdraw from the occupied territories."

It is irony that the nations that helped Saddam to arm himself with biological weapons are the same nations that were quick to attack him and oust him. I guess there must have been another reason for attacking Saddam apart from the pretext that he had weapons of mass destruction.

Hallo Doggie! Danke für Deine nette Vongrelluts. Schön das Du zu uns gefunden hast. Wow – Ihr geht ja richtig nach System vor, das kannte ich noch garnicht. Klingt aber sehr interessant finde ich, mir wird der Alltag nämlich oft zu langweilig und dann verliere ich die Lust am spielen. Ich werde mir die Seite mal genauer ansehen. Und ich bin schon neugierig auf deinen Spielbericht aus dem Leben in Dreamville.
