Rice lies about 'UN mandate' for US war in Iraq
31 Jan 2005
The propaganda session, with the new US State - Secretary - Condoleezza Rice - concerning the illegal election* and the illegal US's war in Iraq,* - took place yesterday, Jan. 30, 2005.
by Henk Ruyssenaars

Monday Jan 31 - 2005 - The following is an excerpt from the transcription of "Fox News Sunday".

The propaganda session, with the new US State - Secretary - Condoleezza Rice - concerning the illegal election* and the illegal US's war in Iraq,* - took place yesterday, Jan. 30, 2005.

The 'link' and the original text below - show a transcript full of wishful thinking, sheer lies and propaganda on the IQ level of a baboon.

'No wonder', Gore Vidal reflected on this, on Bush and the behaviour of the neocons - given the present abominable 'State of the Union':

"Symbolically, it's interesting that regions of the US are rejecting Darwin and evolution. I can see why:

We have a substantial minority in the US that hasn't advanced much beyond the baboon. These ignorant folk are full of hatred, which is why they are currently rejecting evolution and going back to the stone age with torture, killing innocent people, attacking countries that have done us no harm. This is insupportable." [end quote]

This globally famous american writer Gore Vidal - during the past decade - has for 99% only been published abroad, which tells the world a lot about the 'Freedom of the Press' in the United States itself.

FOX 'NEWS' is known to be one of the foulest sources of US propaganda and 'spin' in the US's broadcasting history, and this transcript concerning Rice again is a hair-raising example of the drivel and pertinent lies being permanently spread by FOX's so called 'editors' and their ilk the 'spinmeisters' - as 'mental manure' via the airwaves:

Quote - transcript: "CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS: Joining us now to give us her assessment of today's events, what it means for Iraq and the U.S., is the new secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice.

WALLACE: Ted Kennedy made a speech this week in which he compared the situation in Iraq to Vietnam. He said that we're in a quagmire. He said that we're losing the battle for the hearts and minds of the Iraqis. He said that we need to begin pulling out U.S. troops.

[HR - Kennedy's remarks - Url.:]

And then he said the following. I'd like you to listen, if you would, please. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

U.S. SENATOR EDWARD KENNEDY (D-MA): The U.S. military presence has become part of the problem, not part of the solution. (END VIDEO CLIP)

WALLACE: Secretary Rice, given especially the events of today, what do you think of Ted Kennedy's remarks?

RICE: Well, American and other coalition forces are there under U.N. mandate because the Iraqis believe that they're needed. The Iraqis are not yet capable of securing themselves. [Against foreign invaders ? - HR]

What we're seeing today is what the Iraqis want their future to be. They want it to be one based on democracy, on the vote, not on the gun." [end quote]

It is quite clear that the american neocon government and again this 'secretary of state' - like the former one, Colin Powell, keeps lying about the non-existing "UN mandate", while the United Nations Secretary General - Kofi Annan - has confirmed that there is no UN madate and that the war in Iraq is illegal.*

He has told the BBC the US-led invasion of Iraq was ''an illegal act that contravened the UN charter.''

Annan said: 'the decision to take action in Iraq should have been made by the Security Council, not unilaterally'.

And, by the way: only Congress in the US can declare war: NOT the president.

Confirming that the US and it's bribed, bullied and blackmailed Quisling-'allies' all breach the Charter of the United Nations which they have signed.

So, what can the world expect from
another lying US Secretary of State?
