Will Grigg?s Liberty Minute

June 11, 2008

President Bush recently told NBC news the Iraq occupation may last forty years. He?s doing what he can to ensure that it does.
The administration is seeking to force the Iraqi government to sign a special agreement establishing fifty permanent military bases in that country.

The same accord would grant unqualified immunity to all U.S. occupation personnel, and give the Iraqi government no recourse should those bases be used to carry out military missions against neighboring countries. Although it would be a treaty, Bush insists that it does not require Senate approval.

To compel Iraq?s acquiescence, the Bush administration is holding hostage $50 billion in Iraqi funds deposited at the Federal Reserve Bank in New York. Those funds would be confiscated unless the Iraqi government signs the proposed agreement by July 31.

This is what Bush?s crusade to liberate Iraq has led to: Brazen, illegal aggression coupled with undisguised extortion.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
