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.
