“Removing Saddam from power was essential in the WOT”

You seem to be saying that it is irrelevant whether or not Saddam had WMD. Yes, that may be true.

But, it would be outrageously ironic if it turns out that in fact Saddam did have them. And, the thesis of these articles seem persuasive. It makes sense that he did have them and that they were moved. That is something logical that the terrorists would do.

Irrelevant if he had "stockpiles" of WMDs. Reality is many WMDs can be quickly produced and have a rather short shelf-life (the idea of keeping large stockpiles really never made much sense....especially considering the quasi monitoring that was going on over him)

Again, the Russian's simply aren't as competent as these articles suggest......

You need to read this.
You don’t need Stockpiles.

This UN Inspector had this theory.....

Why Saddam had no WMD stockpiles
by Graham Pearson

“...Three months later, when asked why no WMD had been found since the end of the war, Rolf Ekeus said that his feeling ‘is very clearly that the Iraqi policy long before the war was to build capability to develop its capabilities to produce weapons for the situation, for the conflict situation, not to produce for storage and create a problem of storage management.’ Furthermore he considered that Saddam ‘decided years ago that it was unwise to store mustard gas and other unstable and corrosive poisons in barrels, and also difficult to conceal them. Therefore, rather than store large stocks of weapons of mass destruction, he would adapt the program to retain an infrastructure (laboratories, equipment, trained scientists, detailed plans) that could “break-out” and ramp up production when required. The model is Japanese “just in time” manufacturing, where you save on inventory by making and delivering stuff in immediate response to orders.’
