    Supposing facts not in evidence.

    OK this is enough. I think he lied. You don't think he lied.
    You -thnk- he lied, but cannot prove it.

    He couldn't fully comply with the UN resolutions without showing their destruction.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Beautiful. I apologize. I missed the part where you readily admit that apparently Clinton et al are liars and intentinionally decieved everyone. Now...lets take that next step...do you have the integrity to admit that the only reason you have this 'moral high ground' from which to preach your regular "I hate Bush" rhetoric is because he actually took action? That the only reason we KNOW what we know today re Husseins intentional deception, the faulty intel from virtually every agency in the world, is that Bush didnt sit back and wait for the UN to pass another 17 failed resolutions? (I know...thats asking a lot...)

    I understand, but they gave a man who wanted to optionally invade Iraq the power to do it. I just appreciate the people in Congress that knew better.

    That was pretty smart work. Much better than invasion and nation building, don't you think?

    Oh...lets just ASSUME that Saddam just dumped all those biological spores out in the middle of the desert. Or space aliens came and wisked them away. The simple FACT remains that George Bush had access to the same intel that the democrats had and EVERYONE made the same conclusions and lets be VERY honest...the ONLY reason we KNOW what we KNOW (and that you continue to bleat on about) is BECAUSE George Bush...unlike the UN and every other world leader ACTED.

    SO...does it make me feel better that Saddam and his tribe are dead and gone? Yep. Does it make me feel better knowing there are still thousands of tons of actual weapons and biological spores that are unaccounted for? Nope. Would it have been better if the UN had ACTED instead of impotently passing one failed resolution after another? You bet. Would you and others still have found a reason to hate Bush? Yeah...Im pretty sure you would...
    Hahahaha!

    We know what we know, which is that we were wrong about Iraq, because we invaded Iraq.

    Brilliant! Problem solved!

    If Clinton had actually acted with efficacy in this regard, there would have been no need for invasion or nation REbuilding.

    Okay, I'll play for a minute:

    If George H. W. Bush had only gone all the way in his action against Iraq, there would have been no need...

    If Ronald Reagan had not supported Iraq at the time Hussein was actually actively using WMDs, there would have been no need...

    If, if, if...

    Indeed. Of course...the fact that the UN passed 17 resolutions attempting to force compliance and every democrat and damn near every intel agency in the world believed that Saddam still possessed those weapons and posed a legit threat sort of testifies to that brilliance.

    Oh...I know...I know...CLinton was JUSTIFIED attacking numerous times over those 'non-existent' WMDs...
    ..that no one STILL has the slightest curiosity as to the disposition of said WMDs...hmmm...

    Thats NOT necessarily an incorrect train of thought. Which ENDED of course when Bush actually acted in a decisive manner...
