from Phil. Daily Inquirer:



http://www.inq7.net/brk/2003/mar/20/brkafp_11-1.htm



WASHINGTON - The United States has launched war against Iraq and President George W. Bush will make public remarks at 10:15 PM (0315 GMT), the White House announced.



"The opening stages of the disarmament of the Iraqi regime have begun," spokesman Ari Fleischer said as anti-aircraft fire and air sirens were heard in Baghdad.



 

"The president will address the nation at 10:15," Fleischer said.



The White House announcement came after several explosions rocked Baghdad on Thursday where anti-aircraft fire was heard.



The explosions were heard around 4:35 am (1435 GMT), shortly after air raid sirens went off.

Bush is a hypocrite, every thinking people knows American interest is written all over it--read Cheap Iraqi Oil. Besides, a Liberation from the outside is no liberation at all, where's the Iraqi people's right for self determination, if Saddam is a tyrant then let the people of Iraq oust him.

SO what's wrong with looking out for your own national interest?  



If the Philippines is a world power I'm sure it would also take steps to protect its interests.

US has forgotten the Vietnam

War, says Vietnamese press

Posted: 11:43 AM (Manila Time) | Mar. 20, 2003

Agence France-Presse



HANOI -- The United States has forgotten the lessons of Vietnam War, the Vietnamese state media said as President George W. Bush declared the start of strikes in Iraq.



"By forgetting the lessons of Vietnam War, the Bush administration is leading America and its people into a war with unpredictable consequences," said an editorial in the state police mouthpiece Cong An Nhan Dan.



"The American political leaders seem to forget what happened in the Vietnamese battlefields during the 1960s and 1970s, with the 'hamburger hills', the 'frying pans' and the graves burying the invaders in the green rice fields."



The paper went on to say: "Once again, the American politicians and public opinion have to review the lessons of Vietnam War, in which the US did underestimate the national spirit of Vietnamese people, while overestimating the power of bombs and weapons.



"The US defeat in Vietnam War has not yet been acknowledged and considered by the leaders in White House and Pentagon...", the newspaper said.

being the only superpower left gets into Bush's head.

(and inevitably erases his memory of the past)
this is where people put in their rig specs in an attempt to look kewl, act 133t, and get chicks.

jojitb,



nothing wrong with that but it is still Iraqs oil, not American, if Bush wants it, why not just buy it, instead of spilling blood for it.



 like my sensei said, Iraq may have problems but it is not for other countries to solve, it is the Iraqis. as for people power, well kung ano nangyari kay Juan eh pwedeng hindi mangyari kay Pedro.

both bush and blair have repeatedly said that they were not interested in iraqi oil... they even warned saddam not to set fire to the oil wells since the oil belongs to the iraqi people... they also said that all oil proceeds will be held in a trust fund for the iraqi people to help in the reconstruction of their country after the war...
