For anyone who's screaming about how "Bush lied!", I suggest you take a breath and read this piece by Richard Spertzel , who was head of the biological-weapons section of Unscom from 1994-99. It's time for the hysterical lefties to stop lying to themselves, period. If you honestly think that Saddam wasn't busy getting any kind of WMD he could get his hands on, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn and oceanfront property in Arizona that you might be interested in.
From Lee, over at Right Thinking from the Left Coast, we find out that the Amazon Rainforest is being destroyed at a record pace. The reason? Soy! It seems that since the loony left of EUrope has violently rejected any Geneticly Modified foods, such as the disease-resistant soybeans the USA produces (and has been eating for years), Brazil has filled the EUro-peon soybean nitch with their unmodified soy. But in order to do this, they've had to clear-cut massive amounts of land. Soy doesn't grow in the woods, donchano.
Of course, this is the same group of people that would rather let Africa starve to death, rather than eat the GM foods that the USA produces.
"Yes, I know you're hungry! Yes, I know you're starving to death. But that GM food is POISON! EVIL, I tell ya!"
