In the years leading up to the invasion of Iraq, the US presented a number of reasons to overthrow Saddam's regime, and the abuse of the oil-for-food
program was only one of them... as was the WMD issue. The WMD excuse was a last resort as the UN (or at least a few key members of the security
council) did everything that they could to stand in our way, primarily because they had major economic investments in Iraq. All of this seemed pretty
clear from the begining. People act suprised only because either they are quite dense or because they want to use this as fuel against Bush and/or the
entire US in general.
I don't think I've heard any real (political) news in months... just the same old tired stories regurgitated time and again. I don't mean
that as an attack on this site or Trick, but as an attack on the media.
