If I could see a motive, this evidence would make me very suspicious. But I simply don't see a motive. What does Saddam have to gain from sponsoring a terrorist attack? Right now he's sitting pretty. He's more firmly in power than he has ever been. He's got no reason to provoke a US attack that would unseat him, as we surely would do if he were behind the attack. Saddam may be evil, but he's not stupid or irrational. He's very cunning and Machiavelian.
What does Saddam have to gain from sponsoring a terrorist attack?
What did he have to gain from lobbing ballistic missiles at Tel Aviv, or setting fire to all the oilfields of Kuwait?
Will you please wake up from your slumber. It has nothing to do with gain, it has everything to do with holy war and doing anything to kill the Great Satan. Any american death is a success to these idiots. It is about success and establishing themselves in the eyes of the rest of the jihad towel head world.
Saddam isn't stupid or irrational? He most certainly is, witness the Gulf War.He maybe bloodthirsty, evil and cunning, but he is stupid.You are judging him by your own standards of intelligence.Applying the ruthless cunning needed to kill internal enemies isn't the same thing when he decides to bite off a chunk of the Mid East and step into a whole other weight class.Evil dictators have been known throughout history to do some very irrational things that are harmful to their own best interests.Its called...human nature.
