Zionist 'Prince of Darkness' Craves War

The Pentagon's top civilian security adviser told an assembly of British politicians that the United States would attack Iraq even if UN inspectors fail to find weapons of mass destruction.
Richard Perle, President Bush's hawkish adviser known as "The Prince of Darkness," "stunned" British parliamentarians (MP) by saying a "clean bill of health" from UN chief weapons inspector Hans Blix would not prevent a U.S. and British invasion of Iraq. The provocative comments by Perle, who has been a lobbyist for an Israeli arms manufacturer, were reported in an article titled "War, Whatever" in the Mirror, a British journal, on Nov. 20.
Former British Defense Minister and Labour Party MP Peter Kilfoyle said: "America is duping the world into believing it supports these inspections." President Bush intends to go to war even if inspectors find nothing. This makes a mockery of the whole process and exposes America's real determination to bomb Iraq," Kilfoyle said.
The Iraqi regime is in the difficult position of having to prove a negative - that it doesn't possess banned weapons. As Perle told the MPs: "I cannot see how Hans Blix can state more than he can know. All he can know is the results of his own investigations. And that does not prove Saddam does not have weapons of mass destruction."
Perle, who chairs a Pentagon advisory board said: "Suppose we are able to find someone who has been involved in the development of weapons and he says there are stores of nerve agents. But you cannot find them because they are so well hidden. Do you actually have to take possession of the nerve agents to convince? We are not dealing with a situation where you can expect cooperation."
Kilfoyle said: "Because Saddam is so hated in Iraq, it would be easy to find someone to say they witnessed weapons building. Perle says the Americans would be satisfied with such claims even if no real evidence was produced. That's a terrifying prospect."
