  • Bir rüya büyü ile gerçek olmaz; ter, kararlılık ve sıkı çalışma gerektirir.
    Colin Powell
  • “90'lı yılların ortasından itibaren konuşulmaya başlanan, Kasım 1998'de Dışişleri Bakanı Colin Powell tarafından resmen ilan edilen ve 2004'te G-8'lerin Sea Island'daki zirvesinde temelleri atılan şu ünlü Büyük Ortadoğu Projesi'nin bölge ülkelerine, yani Müslüman ülkelere demokrasi, insan hakları ve özgürlükler getireceği, Müslümanlarla Batı kültürleri arasında dostlukların geliştirileceği söylenmiş ve bunun için de Müslüman ülke, hükümet ve halklarından da bir ricada (!) bulunulmuştu:
    "Radikalizmden vazgeçin ve ılımlı olun."
    İşte Batı'nın İslam ülkelerine karşı yeni savaşının yeni şifre sözcüğü:
    "Ilımlılık."
    Peki, İslam'a ve Müslümanlara karşı bilinen tavır ve davranışlarından vazgeçmeyen Batı bu konuda ne kadar samimi?
    Ya da Batı ılımlı İslam'dan ne anlıyor ya da ne demek istiyor?”
  • Başarının sırrı yoktur. Başarı, iyi bir hazırlığın, çok çalışmanın ve başarısızlıklardan ders çıkarmanın sonucudur.
    Colin Powell
  • Colin Powell, 5 Şubat 2003’te Birleşmiş Milletler’deki konuşmasında, bir kimya mühendisinden gelen bilgilere dayanarak, “Irak’ta biyolojik silahların bulunduğunu” açıklamıştı.
    Iraklı mühendis Ahmed Elvan el-Cenabi, sekiz yıl sonra İngiliz Guardian gazetesine şu açıklamayı yaptı:
    “Bana bir yalan söyleyerek Irak rejimini devirme şansı verildi. Ben ve oğullarım, Irak’a demokrasinin gelmesine neden olmaktan dolayı gurur duyuyoruz.”

    Vatan Partisi genel başkanı olan yazarın AKP hükümeti ve devletin başı olan başbakan Recep Tayyip Erdoğan hakkında yazdığı, onun Yüce Divan'da yargılanması gerektiğini belirttiği ve bunun sebeplerini açıkladığı bir araştırma eseri. ABD kaynaklı isimlerin daha 28 Şubat bile olmadan Erdoğan'ın ülkenin başına geleceğini söylemesi, 3 Kasım 2002 seçimlerinden sonra daha milletvekili ve başbakan olmadan önce Yunan başbakanı ile gizli görüşmeler yapması, ABD Dışişleri Bakanına kendisini başbakan yapmalarını istemesi, Dışişleri Bakanı Abdullah Gül'ün Colin Powell ile 9 maddelik bir gizli mutabakat imzalaması, bu sebeple bir an evvel Irak tezkeresinin çıkarılmaya çalışılması, Kıbrıs konusunda Rauf Denktaş'ın kandırılması ve Annan Planının uygulanmaya çalışılması, TÜPRAŞ gibi firmaların değerinin çok altında özelleştirilmesi ve rüşvet iddiaları, Kürt sorunu ile ilgili olarak BOP merkezinin Diyarbakır olacağının açıklanması, PKK terör örgütünün sanki bir tarafmış gibi silah bırakmasının istenmesi, çeşitli dönemlerde AKP'li yetkililerin yaptığı irticai ve Cumhuriyet düşmanı açıklamalar, AB uyum süreci kapsamında yasalar üzerinde yapılan ciddi değişiklikler, Anayasa değişikliği talebi ile hükümranlık haklarımızda ciddi kesintilerin bizzat bizim meclis tarafından talep edilmesi, devlet içerisindeki tarikat ve cemaat yapılanmaları, özellikle Danıştay saldırısı ve Hrant Dink cinayetindeki Fetullahçı izleri gibi pek çok konu anlatılıyor. Sonrasında Erdoğan'ın İBB başkanlığından itibaren yaptığı gaf denilebilecek açıklamaları ve o zamanki adı ile İşçi Partisinin Yargıtay Cumhuriyet Başsavcılığına yazdığı suç duyurusu metni de yer alıyor. Özellikle AKP'nin ilk dönem icraatlarını hatırlamayanların mutlaka okuması gereken kitaplardan biri.
