    Re: Iran accused over Washington terror plot

    imho, the WMD are only meaningful in re the US going to war w/ Iraq if Iraq was going to use them against us.

    Unless Iraq was going to attack us, what weapons it had or didn't have aren't that significant to the question whether or not we should have attacked them.

    obviously, for some of you, ymmv
    I may be wrong.

    I tend to agree. Nealry every nation on the world has wmds. And it should be noted, we were not attacked by any wmds supplied by any nation. A group of men highjacked planes. They did not get weapons and use them against us. The premise was a bit of a leap to begin with.

    I am simply flabbergasted by your response. You are the one who foolishly interjected yourself into this conversation and claimed that I get my information from the Daily Kos, which couldn't be further than the truth.

    When I kindly respond to your request by providing valid news sources, an alternative media source, and a Congressional hearing testimony, you respond by plugging up your ears and shouting "la, la, la, I can't hear you". Next time don't make a request and then shrug it off when someone provides you the info that you asked for.

    Perhaps we can try this some other time, but for now I don't see any reason to continue this conversation.

    Nearly every nation in the world had WMD's? I guess Iraq was the exception.

    And the planes were the weapons!

    Do you sincerely believe the Jihadists would not have used WMD if they had them?

    Guess what? Iraq had no connections to AQ at all.

    9/11 panel sees no Iraq-al-Qaida link - US news - Security - msnbc.com
    Al Qaeda-Hussein Link Is Dismissed (washingtonpost.com)
    Hussein's Iraq and al Qaeda not linked, Pentagon says - CNN
    BBC NEWS | Americas | Saddam 'had no link to al-Qaeda'

    That's not accurate as written either.

    But it's closer to the truth than saying that they were in cahoots.
    I may be wrong.
