Bold Warning From Senator Byrd
War Based Upon Falsified Documents
"Sen. Robert Byrd: 'Today I Weep for My Country' ", Washington Post, 3/19/2003. "Today I weep for my country," said West Virginia Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd. "No more is the image of America one of strong, yet benevolent peacekeeper. ... Around the globe, our friends mistrust us, our word is disputed, our intentions are questioned ... The case this administration tries to make to justify its fixation with war is tainted by charges of falsified documents and circumstantial evidence," Byrd said. Despite administration suggestions to the contrary, Byrd said, 'There is no credible information to connect Saddam Hussein to 9/11.'
The senator said, "We cannot convince the world of the necessity of this war for one simple reason. This is a war of choice."
These are strong words, indeed, from a very old and respected member of the U.S. Senate. Not only have we launched this war on "falsified documents and circumstantial evidence", we have launched this war flying in the face of strong, determined opposition within the United Nations General Assembly and key permanent members of the Security Council.
If President Bush succeeds wildly in this war, the damage done to the United Nations might be irreparable. And, we know this is not the plan. The appearance of Antichrist would be set back for decades, as he is planned to arise to take control of the world through the United Nations.
