    The world knew about those rotting weapons back in the summer of 2003; nice to see the Conservatives catching up.


    Bush knew it then too, so it’s interesting that HE didn’t use those findings as justification for his wars. Even HE knew the weapons were useless and would not be a justification, even if today’s Conservatives don’t know it.

    Recently, someone posted a YouTube of clips showing that all the Democrats—who could have filibustered to prevent funding the war—all agreed it was absolutely necessary. Bush, jr had proof of WMD: he had the invoices for the ones the US sold to Saddam to use against the Iranians and the Iraqi Sh’ia who were in bed with the Iranians, which clearly justified handing Saddam over to a lynch mob (he was about to qualify for a fat US Government pension).


    So it’s wrong to give Bush, jr all the credit for the war when so many were complicit. Of course, the brilliant leadership of Bush, jr left the entire Middle East completely free of terrorists, peaceful and prosperous until the Muslim from Kenya squandered the Bush, jr legacy.

    Part of the reason not to declare those obsolete/outdated/worthless shells was that they were stamped Made in USA, and or purchased from USA. (Thank you Don Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney!).


    An obsolete and unusable munition is NOT a WMD, just as was reported long before 2003. But of course old MIG aircraft buried in the dirt, were also a great threat.

    It is good to remember that while the existence of WMDs was not the main reason for the Iraq war the fact is that Saddam did not fully account for the WMD we knew that he had previously possessed, which is consistent with what the Bush Administration said and what we have since discovered:

    So what was the “reason” for the Iraq war?
