    Bush himself says there's no WMDs.

    Anybody who thinks mustard gas and blister agent are some of the most 'lethal weapons ever devised' has obviously never heard of agent orange, AQ Khan's thermonuclear technology, NK's plutonium bombs and all the others held by Syria, Libya, Saudi Arabia etc. Seriously, Iraq was a crippled little bull**** state we managed to overthrow in 3 weeks.
    This is 100% true. But not only a crippled state, also one that we had held contained since 1991.

    There are still people who believe invading Iraq again was worth it. You can show them in print that we were wrong, even show video of President Bush saying we were wrong, but the diehards just have the need to believe it was the only way to go, I guess.
    Do not write in this space!

    Blister agents, when inhaled, cause blister inside your lungs, which burst, filling your lung with fluid, causing you to drown. This all happens within a few minutes.

    Agent orange is a friggin' herbacide!

    Biiiiiiiig difference.
    Tell that to the Vietnamese:



    According to Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 4.8 million Vietnamese people were exposed to Agent Orange, resulting in 400,000 people being killed or maimed, and 500,000 children born with birth defects.[11]

    I don't think Bush lied to get us into Iraq, but I do think he made his decisions based on weak analysis and information.
    You know, I think thats probably fairly accurate. I think it's the first time i've ever heard a liberal of any type come close to acknowledging that.

    Psst! The Iraq war resolution (the reason we mostly went to war) listed much more then just Iraq having stockpiles of WMD. That was but one reason.

    In fact, I would argue that the reason we went to war with Iraq was "mostly" due to:
    "Iraq's noncompliance with the conditions of the 1991 cease fire, including interference with weapons inspectors".

    If he had followed through with his commitments under the cease fire agreement and no weapons were found, we would not have been able to go forward with the war. However, Saddam acted as if he had WMD and stalled the weapons inspectors in the hope that we would lose interest as the previous administration did.

    Good to see that Wikileaks will release info impartially.
    So follow me into the desert

    Do you mean John Kerry, and former President and Mrs Clinton as well, since they also pushed the rhetoric that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction? You have to remember that it took awhile for the US to mobilize its forces to attack Iraq. What were all those trucks carrying that were seen traveling from Iraq to Syria?

    Bush Derangement syndrome obviously.
    This is a liberal who just hates Bush so vehemently that he can't think straight anymore.
    There's absolutely no other reason why he would say that we found no WMD in Iraq. Only a deranged person would overlook decades old, broken-down shells from before Gulf War I.


    But this guy makes a good point--"...the best way to do hope is through a form of government." Government is the best way to give someone hope. There's a conservative principle for ya. Can't get mush more conservative than that.


    Seriously, we're still having this debate years later?
    I may be wrong.
