    You still cannot back up your ridiculous claim that Bush and Reagan gave Saddam WMD. You are simply being a typical leftist disseminating disinformation and crude, defamatory anti-USA propaganda.

    Perhaps it would be wise to read the reports, and the one's that followed, before continuing to prove you desire to embrace the Progressive memes rather than the facts.

    Focus on the ones where Iraqi officials refused access, and kicked out inspectors when they closed in on facilities their investigations indicated were suspicious.

    And one of the key points you make in the book, and we'll get right to it, is that the war really wasn't justified; that the inspections at the time a year ago were going well.

    You write this: "I felt the armed action taken was not in line with what the Security Council had decided five months earlier. Had there been any denials of access, any cat-and-mouse play? No. Had the inspections been going well? Yes. True, they had not resolved any of the open disarmament issues, but in my view, they had gone much too well to be abandoned to justify war."

    Transcript: Director General's CNN Interview - 21 March 2004
    Dong! Fail. Hans Blix. Talking points again? Sorry, but avoiding the facts isn't going to make this Prog/Lib meme any more factual. It's always been fun to read Blix's call that the inspections were going well. I guess if the standard is to be shut out of sites, and to be kicked out of the country are standards of excellence, he has a point. But really, not good for your meme.



    Read the reports, or just continue to carry the water.

    Not at all. The Iraqi army's problem is that Sunnis were excluded.

    Perhaps, Stalin was evil, but that didn't lead to armed conflict. We do not have to go around the world and try to stomp out every evil person or leader in the world.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    We were coming out of the GOP great depression until FDR listened to the deficit scolds and cut spending by 10% in 1937...
    FDR ran in 1932 on a deficit cutting platform.

    No. There's a definite morale boost to having powerful friends in the fight with you. Plus, we bring a big force multiplier in terms of intelligence and logistics.

    But that doesn't mean that it won't happen.


    U.S. aircraft could strike targets in Iraq tomorrow, but I don't know if that's a good idea if the Iraqi government doesn't change its way of doing business and reach out to the Sunnis in Iraq.
    Exactly, Iraq has the men and the equipment to put a halt to ISIS, but does it have the will and heart. It is very possible al-Maliki has burnt down all his bridges too. al-Maliki may have to go, he has garnered too much hate against in the Sunni and Kurdish communities. Even a change may be too late, once one learns to hate, no olive branch will end that hate.
