Are we supposed to believe Hussein. I believe Saddam Hussein about as much as I believe Barack Hussein.

It doesn’t change the fact that everyone....liberals, conservatives, Americans, Europeans, United Nations, etc....all thought Iraq had WMDs.

The fact that Sadaam was lying about it changed nothing and does not make President Bush a liar.

Besides, do you trust an admitted liar to now tell you the truth?

He lies. What about the people he gassed? I guess that was not a weapon of mass destruction. He was simply misunderstood.

Weapons of mass destruction includes chemical weapons not only nuclear..

Sadaam, on the record, murdered many Kurds and Iranians with chemical weapons.. AND some of them were found in Iraq..

Weapons of Mass Destruction WERE found..

I guess when you are sitting around waiting to be hanged you can say anything you want.

The time to say those things was BEFORE your country is invaded, and perhaps co-operating with all those useless nations inspectors would have been a beneficial as well.

If you walk into a bank and you stick your finger in your coat pocket and tell the teller you have a gun, the teller assumes you have a gun.

If you are leaving the scene of a crime and you stick your finger in your pocket and point it at the cops and tell them you have a gun, guess what? The cops will shoot you.

If you make it a point to make everyone think you have weapons of mass destruction. Guess what? You are going to get invaded and hung.

Sounds good to me.

Unfortunately for Sadam the new leaders of Iraq didn't fake having good quality rope. So sad too bad.

What a crock of disinformation. Of course Saddam had WMDs. We know about all the chemical weapons he had, supposedly we supplied the seeds for that program during the Iran/Iraq war. We know he had tons of unenriched uranium ore and was trying to get more. We took Saddam out before he could amass the equipment necessary to really threaten people at a distance...equipment such as centrifuges which Europe and Russia were happy to sell him.

The truth is that if we had not taken out Saddam, both Iran and Iraq would probably now be close to building a bomb. There is no doubt of Saddam's intent and desire to possess WMDs, we've seen what he did to his own people.

All those trucks that left Iraq right before the shock and awe...someone somewhere at least has a lot of chemicals.

Well, he was kind of painted into a corner.

Sun Tzu is said to have said “When weak, feign strength; when strong, feign weakness”.

Saddam was simultaneously trying to make the Iranians think he had WMDs, while at the same time trying to make the UN think he didn’t.

Sucked to be him.

Old news. He wanted the Iranians to believe he had WMD so desperately that he denied ever having them every step of the way right to his dying breath.

But of course, the leftists will hang this lying, mass-murdering monster’s every word if it will help them further discredit GWB. That’s also old new.

Very true about his thoughts re:Iran. That much I will accept, because that is EXACTLY Iran’s intention, and has always been. The Iran-Iraq war was fought over that exact area.

Of course Sadaam could have been lying.But this is a plausible scenario just as certainly as was him having destroyed the WMDs in the weeks leading up to the war or his having moved them to Syria (which certainly explains all the truck activity at the border before the war).

Either way.....he faked it....he destroyed them....he moved them....the invasion was still justifiable.I've seen *many* quotes from prominent RATS during the late 90's and early this decade...including from BillyBob himself...telling us of how dangerous Sadaam was and how he needed to be *strongly* dealt with.

Convince the world you have X, don’t be surprised the world responds as if you have X.

This helps defuse the “there weren’t any WMDs!” mantra: ok, so he didn’t - but he admits having worked hard to convince the world he did, and we acted appropriately based on his deliberate misrepresentation.

“All those trucks that left Iraq right before the shock and awe...someone somewhere at least has a lot of chemicals. “

I think that mysterious explosion in Syria in which the Israelis were blamed covered up whatever Saddam sent out of country.

he led the world to believe that his country had weapons of mass destruction because he did not want to appear weak to the Islamic Republic of Iran

I've heard that said on more than one occasion. Well he got his wish. Maybe he should have squealed before the shock and awe started.

Perception influences reality.

His "phantom" nukes had deterrence impact as much as the real ones. Everybody believed that he's got something. Everybody had to act on this perception. He bluffed. He was called on his bluff.

The idea (very much negated by the Bush Derangement Syndrome democrats) was that you don't threaten US or else.

I guess those Kurds didn't die from poison gas (a weapon of mass destruction).... just global warming or something.

Sounds like all bullies and cowardly thugs before they die... Ted Bundy, Danny Harold Rolling etc.... What a f'ing lying POS.

The best part of it all ... the absolute bestest was that this murdering POS got the photos of his two little spawns, his two little thug sons blown to sh#t by the United States armed forces...bwahahahaa...

rest in h#ll saddam.... feel the burn... it's good for ya... remember no pain, no gain.... how's that allah thing working our for ya?
