    That's just a further example of your well established dishonesty.

That Saddam Hussein was not in anyway connected to 9/11 and that he was never a threat to the United States was irrelevant to the Bush doctrine born before he was president and supported by such neocons as Chrystal, Wolfowitz, Cheney, Rumsfeld and a handful of others.


    The beginning of the end of the international security system had actually come slightly earlier, on September 12, 2002, when President George W. Bush, to the surprise of many, brought his case against Iraq to the General Assembly and challenged the UN to take action against Baghdad for failing to disarm. "We will work with the UN Security Council for the necessary resolutions," Bush said. But he warned that he would act alone if the UN failed to cooperate.

    Washington's threat was reaffirmed a month later by Congress, when it gave Bush the authority to use force against Iraq without getting approval from the UN first. The American message seemed clear: as a senior administration official put it at the time, "we don't need the Security Council."


    Why the Security Council Failed - Council on Foreign Relations
    The US didn't need the UN security Council. They are like the French.

    Rather than flailing away at "Neo-Cons", where is your actual adjective-free complaint?

    I disagree about the security council, unless its to be abolished and no, not really.

    Geez, that Freedom Fries idea was a joke! Are the French still upset about that???

    France could have helped to 'stabilize" Iraq but didn't. Who cares what they think? France, as always, has bitched about the Americans from the sidelines despite the Americans buried by the hundreds of thousands over there. Does anyone out there really care what the French think?

    I'm skeptical you are American, by the way.
    You brought the French into it.

    Perhaps you don't know what the words means. Like j, you never give anything specific or concrete. Just lip to avoid actually discussing an issue.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I quoted a French leader who had also agreed that Saddam had WMD.. There is a difference.

    You aren't American, correct?

    Sigh* More defense of Saddam from you....Are you Iraqi Joe? Anyway, there is no way at this point to definitively say one way or another...We know that Saddam was playing roulette with inspectors, ushering stock piles out of country, and at least representing that he had more.

    The difference between you and I Joe, is that when I disagree with you, I talk to you rather than the chicken **** method of bringing me up to other posters. In any case we get it, you were, and remain a Saddam Hussein supporter.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

And then reports that his capability to deliver such was 6-9 months distance. THAT was complete hyperbole, meant to sway American opinion just like has been used on Americans so many times in the past. However, Saddam Hussein was NEVER capable of delivering a mushroom cloud over an American city. Maybe one day, someday, Americans will learn the lesson, that the White House is often eager to go to war, when such is far from necessary.
    how in the heck could Saddam have gotten a nuclear detonation on the North American continent? "Imminent and grave" is ridiculous.
