Today, I have a very informative and interesting audio clip that everyone should listen too.  The clip is of an interview of Scott Ritter discussing U.S. strategies in Iran and Iraq.  If you are not familiar with Scott Ritter, here is a brief introduction of him.

Bio

Scott Ritter was a former United Nations weapons inspector (resignation letter) in Iraq who repeatedly told the U.N. an_38245042_ritter300.jpgd U.S. officials before 2003 that Iraq possessed no WMD.  The U.S. quickly dismissed his findings that Iraq posed no serious threat to the U.S.  He also said Iraq “did co-operate to a very significant degree with the UN inspection process” and blamed the US and the UK for the breakdown. Mr Ritter essentially repeated those views during his trip to Baghdad last year. He said the US seemed “on the verge of an historic mistake”. “My government is making a case for war against Iraq that is built upon fear and ignorance,” he added. “The truth of the matter is that Iraq today is not a threat to its neighbors and is not acting in a manner which threatens anyone outside of its own borders.”

Scott Ritter states that one of the U.S. strategies in the Middle East is to dictate the growth of China and India.  The growth of China depends largely on the Middle East to fuel its growing population.  That is common knowledge.  However, Mr. Ritter gives us more indepth reasons on US foriegn policy in Iraq and Iran.
