"In a time of universal deceit,
telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
One day is for the Weapons of mass destructions, the other day is to get saddam out of power, because he is involved in 9-11 and the Anthrax, through alqueada, another day, is for the war on terror, "better to fight them there than over here" as president bush said once, already here, you can smell the stupidity, and the credibility of this governement and those who support them.
