“A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower
What are we living for? What are our priorities? Are we living for ourselves and our own pleasures, or for something higher and greater? When we vote, how will we decide who to vote for? The person we hope will make us the most personally comfortable, or the person who will be attempting to protect the freedoms and safety of our nation…and hopefully the entire world?
President Bush has taken huge amounts of criticism for his invasion of Iraq, but as it turns out, he really was trying to protect the world from nuclear war by terrorists. Take a minute to look at this report by NBC on what was really going on behind the scenes.
Secret U.S. mission hauls uranium from Iraq
Last major stockpile from Saddam’s nuclear efforts arrives in Canada
“The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program — a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium — reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans.
The removal of 550 metric tons of “yellowcake” — the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment — was a significant step toward closing the books on Saddam’s nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions.
What’s now left is the final and complicated push to clean up the remaining radioactive debris at the former Tuwaitha nuclear complex about 12 miles south of Baghdad — using teams that include Iraqi experts recently trained in the Chernobyl fallout zone in Ukraine.”
Why isn’t this being broadcast? Could it be because the press wants Obama elected, and so they don’t want Bush to look good right now? What do you think?
