    But to have it mentioned so by the way seems really odd seeing it is one of the things that stand against the USA in so many minds.

    Saddam used chemical weapons during the Al-Anfal campaign, chemical weapons* where never disputed by anyone paying attention. The controversial aspect is whether he had (or was attempting to obtain) nuclear weapons and whether he was capable of using them against the west.

    *The chemical weapons that we sold him, just for the record

    Yes, they know that because they looked at the facility.

    Actually, I did not understand it that way. It was WMD. That the Secretary of State did that horrid presentation did indicate that nukes were a problem. But they were never the only or even main reason.

    You mean armed terrorist group, noting a direct quotation. You sound sensitive.

    They were reported. They just were not what Bush claimed. Old, degraded weapons do not match the claim of growing and gathering. So, let's not pretend otherwise.

    These aren't WMDs because they aren't ****ing weapons. They're garbage. Toxic garbage.

    Everyone knows there were chemicals weapons in Iraq because we gave them to Saddam Hussein. But "Saddam Hussein used to have WMDs" is not why we invaded Iraq.
