Default OT:Colin Powell Quote

When in England at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell
was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for
Iraq were just an example of empire-building by George Bush.

He answered by saying that..."Over the years, the United
States has sent many of its fine young men and women
into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders.
The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return
is enough to bury those that did not return."

It became very quiet in the room.

"freedom is not free"
