ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

No Blood For Oil - Literally

This translation of an Iraqi document is interesting... It shows that in 2003:

  1. Schroeder informed the Iraqi government that he didn't support the war, even though the UN Security council promised serious consequences. Gee, I wonder why Saddam continued to buck the UN?
  2. Chinese Intelligence thought that the WMDs had been moved to Syria
  3. The leadership of the French military is just a bunch of cheese-eating-surrender-monkeys

And perhaps most damning, it's clear that the French & Germans were in it for the money. During the run-up to the war, when the world was praying for the UN approach to work, the French & Germans were trying to establish commercial connections with the Iraqis.
C. He [ express the readiness of French and German companies to execute projects in Iraq as long as the necessary moneys are guaranteed to execute these projects because its revenue decreased lately due the decrease of oil exports.
[...]
B. The Paris station informed us that they were coming to the country to prepare for a visit by the ex-German economy minister with a delegation of German companies to the country for commercial purposes and their visit to the country was shortened because this is not the first time we have doubts about their real intentions toward the country.

What a bunch of idiots.
