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.
