Republican Senator Says Iraq War May Be Illegal

@ 10:28 PM (89 months, 17 days ago)

Wow.  Another one of Bushie's true believers leaves the fold.  What took so long?

Sen. Gordon Smith said yesterday in a speech on the floor of the Senate that he can no longer continue to support the war in Iraq, which he says may be illegal.

Smith said "I for one am at the end of my rope when it comes to supporting a policy that has our soldiers patrolling the same streets in the same way being blown up by the same bombs day after day. That is absurd. It may even be criminal. So either we clear and hold and build or let’s go home."

  1. I wish Rambo will go into Myanmar - get rid of the junta and like give humanitarian aid - but I too feel it will be mesiser when he leaves. This is so confusing.... But to have a meeting here, seeing our foreign minister smiling, shaking hands with the junta reps give me creeps as well. Is Singapore like Myanmar? Strange but where Mrs LKY is concerned, we read it only on thursday papers, while Sammyboy already divulged it much earlier. Make me worried about the intergrity of our papers....what else will they hide??
