Out of the Blue

Okay, so what did I miss? I just caught a portion of The Matrix Reloaded on the satellite again yesterday, and something stuck in my mind that I hadn't noticed before (let me insert a spoiler warning here in case you have yet to see this one... just skip to the links of the day).

So the Architect tells Neo that they've destroyed Zion six times now, but then later refers to Neo's five predecessors. I they've destroyed Zion six times, wouldn't he be the seventh Neo? If there was a version of this event that didn't include a Neo (or if the Architect was simply lying), I would hope that would be clarified. On the other hand, if this repopulate Zion scenario took place as he described, wouldn't the "old" Neo be part of Zion's current populace? I guess this all speaks again to how disappointed I was in how few further wrinkles about all this were included in Matrix Revolutions.

Whats up with all these 1 post trolls all of a sudden. Anyway this is what they said

"The panel said it found "no credible evidence that Iraq and al Qaeda cooperated on attacks against the United States."

" The commission also said that al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden did "explore possible cooperation with Iraq," but said the contacts did not appear to have led to a "collaborative relationship" "

Not much you can spin with that can you?

No WMDs
No OBL and Saddam link/support

Looks like the reasons for the Iraq war are fading.

You could try the first one. Resolution 687.

"Resolution for cease-fire between Iraq and Kuwait, demands Iraq respects Kuwait's border, and demands the deployment of a United Nations monitoring team to make sure Iraq respects the border."

Looks like from what we can tell he wasn't in violation of it. Remember we pulled out the inspecters to attack him.
