No common ground here. The operative word in your reply is "were". Yes, the WMD in the articles I cited "were" in Iraq prior to the war. After they were shipped out of the country, the operative word should be "are", as in they "are" not in Iraq. Got it? With your ringing endorsements of WND as a credible source, I am surprised that you missed this story. An excerpt:
The vial of botulinum bacteria discovered in Iraq by U.S. arms inspectors which experts call the most poisonous substance known to man is "a weapon of mass destruction," the State Department's top spokesman announced yesterday.So WMD "are" in Iraq as well, which makes your whole premise wrong.
"Botulinum kills people, it kills people in large quantities. Botulinum is a weapon of mass destruction, yes," said State spokesman Richard Boucher," according to an Agence France-Presse report. "Anything that destroys on a massive scale is a weapon of mass destruction."
