Jose,

I don't know if Alexandra is right or wrong. Neither do you. Any info we get on the war (or anthing else, for that matter) is from our media. Do you really trust an entity that makes a living off of reporting on Paris Hilton and Anna Nicole Smith? The only thing we really know about this war is that lot of money has been tossed at it. War is about that. Not honor, integrity and god; those concepts are for the military and the brainwashed masses.

The people at Haliburton, Brown and Rudd, oil companies (remember VP Chaneys secret energy talks?), contractors, etc don't really care about those concepts. They are there for the money. That's it; they don't give their resources to us free. They make something called "profits". When someone like Alexandra speaks out, some brainwashed zombie starts spouting patriotism and calls them un-American. I don't know if Bush's really believed there were WMDs in Iraq. Maybe he did. I know he somehow tied 911 to Iraq and convinced people (apparently you too) that Iraq and terrorism are one in the same. They certainly are now.

Submitting....
