Health in Developing Countries: Explaining a few things (2)
I really regret going on your link to read this Mr. Pinter. Not
only was it a giant waste of my time, I am not sure it should
even be on this site. It seems that America bashers just can't
help themselves, they have to try to spread their venom whenever
First of all being a Nobel prize winner does not impress me
much. Jimmy Carter our own ex-president got one. He is well
known for not ever running into any dictator he didn't like.
Second, Mr. Pinter is very long winded and I am not, so I will
only answer a narrow segment of his speech. QUOTE: "As every
single person here knows, the justification for the invasion of
Iraq was that Saddam Hussein possessed a highly dangerous body
of weapons of mass destruction, some of which could be fired in
45 minutes, bringing about appalling devastation. We were as-
sured that was true. It was not true. We were told that Iraq had
a relationship with Al Quaeda and shared responsibility for the
atrocity in New York of September 11th 2001. We were assured
that this was true. It was not true. We were told that Iraq
threatened the security of the world. We were assured it was
true. It was not true."
(1) Saddam's arsenal was real, most of it is in Syria, it will
be proved soon.
(2) It has been proved conclusively recently that there was a
very strong connection to Al Quada by Iraq documentation.
(3) Saddam was a very real threat to the world especially Is-
rael( remember his rail gun?) Gassing the Kurds etc. If I had
the time I could get more detailed, I do not and I will not
waste my precious time talking to a wall. I do not feel that
America bashing has any place on this site. I will call you on
This is all old hat but yet we have to rehash all this over and
over because some of us don't like America. Well I for one know
that America is not perfect but we spend a hell of a lot of our
money to try and improve the world. A lot of which never gets to
the people it was meant for but at least we try. This is what I
complain about, let's work to change it. Let's actually get
something done without a government bureaucracy and show every-
one what WE can do.
I really don't know what we are supposed to learn from Mr. Pin-
ter's speech other than he hates America and got a Nobel so he
could proclaim it. It is so full of half truths distortions and
outright lies it is laughable.
I'm sure that I will get the usual amount of response from those
who feel they must, but I really don't care. The world is a bet-
ter place without Saddam Hussein and I hope that he gets back
what he has metered out to others. If that is being Hitler then
