Oil for Food Investigators Resign in Protest
    #4078531 - 04/20/05 09:00 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

oil for food

Thats a pretty powerful statement. I guess that would be pretty humiliating to have your years of work downplayed by bureaucrats and people with conflicting interests...Im sure we are only hearing the half of this.

Very good link. I await further reports with bated breath. You always expect some disappointed people but senior investigative counsel is pretty high. We'll see who he actually is in the next few days.

Just showing people with conviction such that they resigned instead of perpetuating the notion that Kofi Annan wasn't a part of the corruption.

Seems good to me, at least some people have values.

Did you even bother reading the article?

We are lucky there is a soul like Kofi Annan in the UN to stand up to US tyranny.

No one in the UN has a soul.

Israel doesn't unintentionally kill Palestinians.  :shake:  Israel has a state sanctioned policy of perpetrating a holocaust against Palestinian civilians.

Depends on what he means by "jiggaton" because there is no such thing as a Jiggaton. 
If he meant Gigaton then we have 10kilogigaton = 10 Teratons or 1x(10^14).  The largest weapon in the US arsenal is 100 Megatons or 1x(10^8). 

I googled Teraton explosive to see what compares..... Supposedly the comet that took out the dinosaurs was 100 Teratons.

Yes I think that would kill us all.  :rocket:
