What was Bush supposed to do, personally inspect Iraq himself with a magnifying glass, because Saddam surely was NOT providing evidence he had gotten rid of anything.
It was up to Iraq to provide evidence of WMD destruction. they never did. BTW, who care about WMD, Iraq broke 14 UN resolutions, and repeatedly breached the ceasefire terms from the Gulf war.
Powell, is a Mcpainintheass loser, as well as all the MSM/dem, anti-war,CIA, State Dept. prix.
Thanks for a very coherent, succinct and well phrased post summing it all up beautifully. I can't stand Powell! He is a passive aggressive phony! don't trust the man!
I believe the US behaviour in Iraq will encourage every country on planet earth to develop a nuclear weapon.
Saddam violated UN resolutions so the US decided to attack despite disapproval by the UN. In doing so, we are guilty of the same thing we are accusing Iraq of. During the first Gulf war the UN was very useful to us, they listened to our case for war and agreed to it. In that war like the present one, many of those claims are in dispute. Since they refused to go along with the war this time the UN has been accused of sex crimes, all sorts of corruption, and we have an ambassador who appears to have nothing but contempt for the institution. The crimes the UN is accused of are no different from the ones I read about taking place in this country every day. Why should we expect the UN to be any different? Could it be they were always a corrupt institution, but they were our institution?
I fail to understand the reasoning in any of this.
