I think that anyone who just rules it out, while ignoring the evidence otherwise is kind of ignorant.

    Here is a VERY interesting article that I urge you all to read. It gives points from both perspectives, that there were or were not WMD in Iraq. It certainly seems plausible to me.

    WMDs or not, it gave us a chance to put a base of operations right smack dab in the center of the Middle East, a la Germany after WW2. Now, they'll soon be amassed across a huge swath and be much more difficult to keep in check.

    Hussein denied repeated assertions by his interrogator of a current weapons of mass destruction capability in Iraq,[4] yet had resisted U.N. weapons inspections because he "was more concerned about Iran discovering Iraq’s weaknesses and vulnerabilities than the repercussions of the United States for his refusal to allow U.N. inspectors back into Iraq," according to the reports.[5]

    Okay, so I have heard this before. IOW, he was trying to make it APPEAR to everyone as if he had WMD. So then, are we to blame for believing that he did? And still, who knows if he really did or not? He was a very dishonest and sadistic man who was FAR from trustworthy.

    Anyways, there is a LOT of circumstantial evidence that would lead one to believe that Saddam Hussein most definitely had WMD, IMO. And with the newest information about extra weapons reported in Syria's stockpile of chemical/WMD, what is one to think about that?

    I don't know anyone calling for boots on the ground but this incompetent administration had a few chances this past week catching ISIS jihadist soldiers in the open on the highway and didn't act when they had a chance to turn the highway into the "Highway of Death for Al Qaeda."
    Part of the problem with the war on terror: You guys don't even know who you're fighting. ISIS is not al Qaeda.

    But seriously at some point, don't you wonder how many American lives is too many for a place that either can't or won't overcome their sectarian differences? Propping up this government only strengthens Iran's influence, and yet we're seeing that the other guys aren't so great either. So we should keep sending Americans to die to help Iran, is basically what you're saying.

    Ronald Reagan is turning over in his grave.

    Obama's outlook on the Arab spring and his support of it until he withdrew support of it that is, was doomed. Biden saying one of Obama greatest successes was Iraq was another failure. Obama's bad at most everything as a President, I do agree with him that we should not get involved again with Iraq now.

    Bush wasn't right in the long run. He was wrong. These idiots in the ME aren't worth the blood it takes. The only way it would have worked is with the US occupying the country. We need to let these idiots kill each other and hopefully they will be at it a very long time and keep themselves busy without looking at the US. As long as it stays within the ME and can be contained, I say let them fight it out to the bitter end. More power to 'em.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
