    It's a valid question; afterall over the past five years a lot of soldiers died or were wounded in Iraq; and it's important to remember why they were sent there in the first place.

    Some have presented the notion that they were moved before the invasion. Not really my view....but A view none the less.

    Are you referring to his 3 threads, one right after another, with boring rhetorical questions that have been rehashed at least a dozen times before?

    It's not a very realistic view considering how closely monitored Iraq was in the years leading up to the illegal US invasion and occupation.

    No, not realistic at all, considering how many times Saddam blatantly thumbed his nose to UN weapons inspectors.

    The UN weapons inspectors actually are more responsible for eliminating Iraqi weapons than the US ever dreamed of being.

    By the end of 2002 Iraq represented no extraordinary threat at all; the US invasion in 2003 was the single biggest blunder in the history of our country.

    Why do you ask questions that you seem to know the answer to?

    Mainly because the steadfast refuse to ever acknowledge the fact that there were no WMDs, despite their favorite president having actually shown the smarts to admit they didn't exist some 2 years ago now. But our Limbaugh listeners continue to desperately cling to the Syria nonsense -- a nation that wasn't even speaking to Saddam in 2002-03. I suppose when the hawks finally admit it, the questions might end.

    No matter how adamantly pro Bushies wanna squawk that Saddam hid them, a weapons program of the scale that our fraudulent leaders' alledged would have left behind significant residue and structural evidence. Absolutely nothing was ever found to indicate such a program existed.

    No mobile bioweapons labs, no unmanned drones, no nuclear facilities, no chemical stockpiles in massive warehouses, no tubes for enrichment, and on and on and on. Nothing. Never had them since dismantling what little he had left some 15 years ago. Period.

    Even the C-student in charge ended that BS story. It's time the 'bomb'em all' crowd followed suit.

    I am quite certain that the question is not boring to the families of the soldiers who are fighting and will not be coming home for Easter and other holidays. And its probably not a boring question to the ones that did not come home alive. I am also certain that the lap-dog media, who beat the drums of war, is not asking this question [B]enough.[/B]

    If Iraq actually had WMD's, do you think George Bush would of risked sending in a large ground force invasion?

    Think about it. Say Saddam actually had a nuke, and Bush sent the Army in...where Saddam promptly detonated a nuke, killing thousands of US personnel in one explosion...how would the president have looked then? Or say Saddam dumped Anthrax or Chlorine gas on them?

    George Bush and his advisers knew very well that Saddam lacked WMD's...

    WMD - the DoD can't exactly send officers to people's houses and inform them their son or daughter died because of oil and Israel.

    this is just one of hundreds or thousands of absolute boneheaded Bush disasters taken place in the last 7 years.

    The rest are things he did that Obama or Clinton will do tenfold over the next term because outside of the war he governed like a democrat.

    Implicit in that statement is that McCain doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell of winning the election.

    Only Bush and other Republicans believed Saddam had WMD's. :rolleyes:



    "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
    --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

    "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
    --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

    "Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
    --Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

    "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
    --Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

    "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
    Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
    -- Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
    -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

    "Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
    -- Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

    "There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
    Letter to President Bush, Signed by:
    -- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

    "We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them."
    -- Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

    "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
    -- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
    -- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

    "The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
    -- Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

    "I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
    -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

    "There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

    "He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do"
    -- Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
    -- Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

    "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..."
    -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003
