U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, at the eleventh hour, has altered his presentation to the U.N. Security Council to try to satisfy the concerns of Congressional Democrats, as well as U.S. critics elsewhere in the world.
Previously, Mr. Powell planned to show images and documents demonstrating that the Iraqi government has weapons of mass destruction and is deliberately deceiving U.N. inspectors.

However, the White House has become convinced that even with such evidence, the U.N. and Democrats in Congress will still oppose action to disarm Saddam Hussein.

So, instead, Mr. Powell will present the following accusations against Iraq:

--Saddam Hussein personally owns guns, and uses them.
--Iraq produces oil, the combustion of which will doom the planet to a second ice age.
--Saddam supports the death penalty and uses it.
--Some Iraqis, including government officials, drive Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV).
--Saddam believes Iraq is better than other countries.
--Saddam is decisive, often seeing issues in black-or-white terms, rather than countless shades of grey.
--Many Iraqis are meat eaters.
--Many Iraqis are "pro-life," opposing abortion.

A few Democrats who have previewed the script for the presentation expressed outrage at Iraq, and wondered why President Bush has not previously gone public with this "damning evidence."

"We are ready to authorize the use of overwhelming force," said one unnamed Senate Democrat. "This crazed dictator must be stopped before his ideas spread throughout the region."

Ahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!

Its amazing how the liberals trust Hussein more than they do Bush. At the very least, Bush has got to be the lesser of two evils. Also shows you the difference between Conservatives and liberals. Conservatives would be supporting (and did) a Democratic President in a war with Iraq and so would liberals! ;)

Powell has come up with some more evidence:

--Hussein apparently requires that all convicted sex offenders in Iraq (this includes offenses with animals as well as humans) must register with the palace so that their whereabouts can be made public!

--Hussein permits religious scenes (i.e., a depiction of a successful Jihad against the west) to be displayed on the palace grounds for all to see.

--Hussein has called for tax cuts to help stimulate the Iraq economy (this is in conjuction with forbidding sexual intercourse with farm animals to increase production)!

:D :D

-Saddam supports the notion that the Iraqi people should get a job or promotion based on ability.

Thats because Hussein is overseas in Iraq and not an immediate threat. Bush is here in the USA with a Republican congress and poses an immediate threat. ;)
