Quote of the Day


"He [Saddam Hussein] has not developed any significant capability with respect to weapons of mass destruction. He is unable to use conventional power against his neighbors ... The [U.S] policy of containment has effictively disarmed the Iraqi dictator."

- U.S. Secretary of State. Colin Powell.

As quoted during a press conference in Cairo, Egypt on the 24th of February, 2001
