Collin Powell Quote
When in  England at a fairly large conference,Colin Powell was asked by the  Archbishop of Canterburyif 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.
