    Good point - the hermit kingdom is also nuts, though in a more traditional, terrifying, autocratic god-king dictatorship sort of way. I honestly have no idea how we are going to deal with those people when and if that government ever collapses.

    Yes. How do you think those guards got there?

    Nice straw man, but prior to your post that wonderfully beat up the old brainless scarecrow no one really was suggesting that....they were simply suggesting claims that there were no WMDs in Iraq was incorrect.

    It's entirely possible to believe those claims to be incorrect and still think the action in Iraq was unjustified or ill advised.

    And why were those guards needed AFTER the invasion not before.47

    Why was the same amount of yellowcake before the invasion the same amount after?

    You're just taking bull**** from leftist sites like CBS who are now backtracking on their bull**** and posting it...

    The US WAS NEVER LOOKING FOR CAKE - they wanted chemical or biological weapons, I don't think in a million years they figured they would find cake and that much.

    Furthermore cake is USELESS generally unless you want to make a bomb.

    Either way now your whole "Bush lied" **** goes out the window as it did in 2007/08 (I believe) when they found the cake....

    Iraq doesn't need that much cake for anything BUT to create a nuclear weapon -- Yellow cake is a byproduct that is basically useless. Africa has so much yellow cake they don't know what to do with it but destroy it.

    The thing is he did. But in 2003 he didnt. He got rid of them after the first gulf war.

    You're trying to play politics and I'm using my ****ing head here....
    No im not. Im stating the truth.
    All of this is backed up by validated sources.

    That's interesting. You consider the National Ground Intelligence Center to be an al Qa'ida splinter group?

    Man, that sucks. Turns out the Director of National Intelligence was leading up an AQ cell of massive proportions, and we never knew it.

    My guess would be something to do with the government that previously had sovereign control over that area having been removed from power.

    Why was the same amount of yellowcake before the invasion the same amount after?
    because Saddam did not have and at the time was not seeking to stand up a production capacity.

    Yeah? Then how come we found hundreds of the damn things? Did he leave them in his other pants? And why would he think he still had some? Why would Iraqi's chemical Arty Bn's receive the "Go" order to launch, if they didn't think they could?
