I don't understand people like Fund. They engage in theoretical discussions about whether Hussein was a threat and then completely ignore the fact that Hussein was routinely firing missiles at our pilots in the leadup to the war. Shouldn't Hussein's firing of literally thousands of missiles at our pilots end the discussion as to whether he was a threat to us?

Indeed, one wonders how Democrats would react if real evidence of weapons of mass destruction, say the discovery of chemical weapon shells, surfaced.

There were no Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq.

From Fox News July, 2004

"We were mortified by the information that terrorists were looking for these warheads and offered $5,000 apiece," Dukaczewski said. "An attack with such weapons would be hard to imagine. All of our activity was accelerated at appropriating these warheads."

Dukaczewski refused to give any further details about the terrorists or the sellers of the munitions, saying only that his troops thwarted terrorists by purchasing the 17 rockets for a Soviet-era launcher and two mortar rounds containing the nerve agent [Sarin] for an undisclosed sum June 23.

WMDs were found, so the goal post was moved to say no stockpiles were found. I am still waiting for a response to the first italicized excerpt.

Just remember, the ThugoRat moron traitors are never wrong. They will spin reality into a Star Wars episode. They are sick with negativism, hate, defeatism, and the fact they are so screwed up, they cannot get back into power. Let them keep showing their hate and traitorous behavior against America -- they will pay big in the upcoming elections as polls are already showing...

Well it was very apparent that the Kurds just fell down and died for no apparant reason, other than to further humiliate Saddam, The Hustler, Hussein. Or maybe they inflicted the chemicals on themselves and got a Kodak to remember the moment. (heavy sarcasm)

Bush and Rove are betting big (all in) on Iraq and national security for Nov. The Dems are insane enough to think they could somehow claim this as their theme. What a huge sucker job.

critics of the Bush administration's policy made three arguments: that President Bush more or less lied when claiming Saddam Hussein was a threat to the U.S., there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and that no progress is being made in the war there. All three assumptions rest on shaky ground, so it is remarkable how much critics have seized on them with such fervor and certainty...

Bring it on Dems, choose your weapons, just like 2004. We have O so much ammo.

Here is something that I hadn’t heard before (emphasis added):

“According to the report, Saddam had the capability to start anthrax production within one week of making the decision to do so, and thereafter to produce more than 10 tons of weaponized anthrax a year. The congressional Office of Technology Assessment estimates that if even 200 pounds, or 1% of that amount, were released into the air over Washington, up to three million people would die.”

I find the "war is going badly" trope highly amusing and irritating at the same time. In any war when you have defeated the opposing army, captured their leader, put him on trial, have helped put in place a democratic government, and have killed or imprisoned a high percentage of the "insurgents", how is the war going badly? Did people think that Islamo-fascists would give up without a struggle? I didn't, but everything considered, we have done very well. And when a firing squad puts a volley through the worthless body of Saddam Hussein, we'll be doing even better.

If they believed in God they'd pray for it too.

I wonder how the Dems describe this, one of several references to North Korea in David Kaye's comments about his First Interim Report to Congress, especially in light of current events regarding NK:

In addition to the activities detailed here on Iraq's attempts to develop delivery systems beyond the permitted UN 150km, ISG has also developed information on Iraqi attempts to purchase proscribed missiles and missile technology. Documents found by ISG describe a high level dialogue between Iraq and North Korea that began in December 1999 and included an October 2000 meeting in Baghdad. These documents indicate Iraqi interest in the transfer of technology for surface-to-surface missiles with a range of 1300km (probably No Dong) and land-to-sea missiles with a range of 300km. The document quotes the North Koreans as understanding the limitations imposed by the UN, but being prepared "to cooperate with Iraq on the items it specified". At the time of OIF, these discussions had not led to any missiles being transferred to Iraq. A high level cooperating source has reported that in late 2002 at Saddam's behest a delegation of Iraqi officials was sent to meet with foreign export companies, including one that dealt with missiles. Iraq was interested in buying an advanced ballistic missile with 270km and 500km ranges.

The Republicans really have the DIMs in a corner on this. Everytime a DIM suggests leaving or draw downs, the Republicans can just point out how the DIMs are advocates for losing. The DIMs have put themselves in the very same box Kerry couldn't get out of in '04.
