In Remembrace Of Troops from UK
 

Colin Powell  Quote:

When in England at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if 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.
