THE MEDIA AND LIBERALS LIED !!!
One thing Leftists around the world share in abundance: They’re all a bunch of sarcastic smart asses.
In more pertinent news, Michael Jackson was still dead, and Todd Palin may have had a hand in Alaska’s business.
Saddam Hussein was trying to obtain WMDs. That is very clear. He was prohibited from obtaining such weapons from the “peace” agreement after the 1991 Gulf War.
He essentially “violated parole” and broke the peace. It was for this that he was deposed.
We have our own WMD to worry about now, our President.
They found them the hard way. Iraq never fully accounted for the weapons used afterwards.
Looks like a chinese made silkworm missile.
Many WMDs or materials to make such have been found in Iraq, the media just ignored it or said it didn’t rise to the level of what they consider proof. From Yellowcake Uranium (that Joe Wilson claimed didn’t exist) to sarin nerve gas warheads, President Bush’s claims have been vindicated yet ignored.
My guess would be 'no.'
Looks like a silkworm.
>> found one of those elusive weapons of mass destruction
Again, the premise is wrong. It was the threat of acquiring WMD.
WE know chemical weapons were there. In 2004 we found a railhead in Anbar Province and from there a road heading straight into Syria. From the look of the road, it had been heavily used. I was informed, look carefully because this was the route that the WMD’s were brought into Syria earlier. We did a 180 at the Syrian border. It really makes me angry for the ignorant liberals to keep bleating away that there were no WMD’s in Iraq. I guess Chemical Ali attacked the Kurds with evil thoughts. Grrrr
There is a whole freaking list of WMD’s found Iraq if the msm had any honesty not just a total dem talking point propaganda program.
Um, WMD’s had already been found buried in the desert years ago. Artilary shells packed with sarin gas, mustard gas, and anthrax were dug up by U.S. troops. They had been buried for such a long time that the materials were degraded beyond their usefulness as a WMD, but there were found. This was (very briefly) reported in the news, but the Lame Stream media mostly ignored this. My son’s unit also found some things related to WMD’s but he couldn’t give details. Perhaps one day the truth will come out (I’ll probably be long gone by then).
Here is a copy of my file letter discussing the irrelevancy of WMD position to bringing down Hussein's regime.
Allegedly the war against Hussein was resumed based on his possession of WMDs. Actually, the ceasefire ended and war resumed, because he behaved in material breach of international obligations as reaffirmed in Resolution 1441. Nowhere in Congressional resolutions of 1991, 1998 and 2002, or in U.N. Resolutions 678, 687 and 1441 will you see possession of stockpiles of WMDs as a reason for confronting him with military action. Behavior in terms of threats, evasion, intimidation, and past use, not possession, was always the key. He was to unconditionally accept destruction or removal of all stocks and programs for WMDs and for all missiles over 150-mile range. He was enjoined from committing, supporting or providing safe haven for international terrorism. Bush #1, U.N. and Clinton ignored his continuous material breaches as inspectors resorted to surveillance and investigation to destroy material and programs until Hussein expelled them in 1998.
None of these resolutions were cobbled together like a middle schoolers term paper. Diplomats and politicians laboriously parsed each phrase for clear focus on verbs instead of nouns, behaviors not stockpiles. The U.N.s ultimatum in Resolutions 678 and 1441 authorized disarming Husseins regime through military operations in Iraq to restore international peace and security in the area. U.N. precedent from Korean War ensured the above phrase intended invasion of Iraq. Everyone in the Security Council and Congress understood that a further material breach required ending the ceasefire, and resuming the war authorized by resolution 678.
We telegraphed our intent far enough in advance that Saddam could have hidden the Great Pyramid, had that been the subject of our concern.
In Syria; or Iran; or Pakistan; or Afghanistan; or Azerbaijan; or Turkmenistan; or even Turkey, Jordan or Saudi Arabia.
How brain-dead must people have to be not see the obvious?
Iraq WMDs ping.
