Revealed: US dirty tricks to win vote on Iraq war

by Volker Weber

I am not even mildly surprised to read that:

The United States is conducting a secret 'dirty tricks' campaign against UN Security Council delegations in New York as part of its battle to win votes in favour of war against Iraq.

Details of the aggressive surveillance operation, which involves interception of the home and office telephones and the emails of UN delegates in New York, are revealed in a document leaked to The Observer.

I wish sadam was your neighbor and not my, i guess you would think different about the need to
fight him.
What you will think when the enxt plain will crash in berlin ?

Well, you would be much more credible if you would use your real name. Your IP address tells me that you are in Israel. In contrast to many people from the US you probably do not confuse the terrorists who crashed a plane into the WTC with Saddam Hussein. But I see your point.

Volker Weber, 2003-03-02

So, you think that I an American am so stupid to thank that Iraq is some how related to the WTC? How about the fact that he is a bad person that has done horrible things and will not stop until someone stops him. Thank goodness there are people who will stand up to a bully like Saddam.

Well, you ARE stupid if you think Saddam is the only "bad person that has done horrible things" on this planet.

Al Qaida and Saddam reached a nonaggressive agreement in 1993. In the mid -1990's Iraq dispatched agents to help train al Qaida operatives in Afghanistan. Al Qaida goal is to destroy the civilized world. Hussein with his arensal is Al Qaida's chief enabler.

I live in a town of 10,000 people, 12 of my neighbors died on 9/11. If the USA has to offend you to defend us, so be it. If I kicked you in the balls Volker, you would hit back?

Ron, how come that Donald Rumsfeld shook hands with Saddam back in the 90's? Who helped Iraq in the war against Iran? What country helped form the Mujaheddin in Afganistan? Which country had close ties to the Taliban and offered them "a carpet of gold" for the rights to the oil in the region? Why did a CIA represenative visit Osama bin-Laden in the "American hospital" in Dubai in July 2001? Why did the "Saudi Bin Ladin Group", Usamas investment company, sell it's share of the "Carlysle group", a US defense company? Who holds or held shares in the Carlysle group? Which corporation was the biggest contractor, building the new army facilities in Saudi Arabia?

I can post more questions...

Jens-Christian Fischer, 2003-03-05

I am sure they are legitimate questions Jens. Can we as Americans be self-serving? Without question. This attack on 9/11 hit home. We have never conducted a pre-emptive strike on any country. This will probably change. But so did the rules on 9/11.

Ron Ervin, 2003-03-05

So nice (sarcasm) to read over and over the argumentation of some US citizens who always talk to Europeans as if they know nothing about suffering homeland terrorist attacks.

to all of you who have "why" questions, i would recommend looking into a documentary entitled 911: the road to tyranny, by alex jones. it gives a pretty complete rundown of all the "hows" and "whys". excellent work. it tells of the ties between bin laden and bush, the american media influenced "fear machine", and gives an excellent timeline of the gradual progression of terrorism on our country, by our country. and not all americans are incompetent, blind, and "patriotic"...
