A Macroeconomic and Geostrategic Analysis of the Unspoken Truth

"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never
was and never will be ...  The People cannot be safe without
information. When the press is free, and every man is able to read,
all is safe."

Those words by Thomas Jefferson embody the unfortunate state of

to war with Iraq, our country seems unable to answer even the most
basic questions about this war. First, why is there virtually no
international support to topple Saddam? If Iraqâ?™s WMD program truly

some analysts believe it is far more likely Al Qaeda might acquire an
unsecured former Soviet Union Weapon(s) of Mass Destruction, or
potentially from sympathizers within a destabilized Pakistan.

Moreover, immediately following Congressâ?™s vote on the Iraq

possesses a more imminent threat that North Koreaâ?™s active program?
Strangely, Donald Rumsfeld suggested that if Saddam were �exiled�
we could avoid an Iraq war?  Confused yet?  Well, Iâ?™m going to give
their game away - the core driver for toppling Saddam is actually the
euro currency, the €.
