Democrats WANT you to believe Saddam didn't because a) they love totalitarian dictators and b) hated Bush.
The whole Iraq debate had absolutely NOTHING to do with weather or not Saddam had WMD's and everything to do with politics.
People (or at least the idiots) forget the entire war would have never been funded if congress didn't vote repeatedly to fund it. Every member of Congress (including the libertarians or "3rd party") damn well knew Saddam had WMD's - that was never the issue - the issue was weather or not US intervention was ethical or needed.
You see had Obama invaded Iraq there would be overwhelming support by democrats. You see it's not about what is right and wrong it's about politics and which party does what.
We invaded Iraq - Obama pulled out and now the place has gone to anarchy. It's that simple.
Why? because a bunch of progressives didn't want us there.... Yeah well, it was too late the second we invaded Iraq.
There were only two options a) let Saddam continue to commit crimes against humanity or b) invade Iraq and let his own people murder his ass... After that the solution would be to hold and control Iraq for 20 years....
BTW, Saddam (and his sons) were just as sadistic as Hitler.
