    ..that no one STILL has the slightest curiosity as to the disposition of said WMDs...hmmm...
    You a UN guy? Believe its a good organization that operates in our best interests?

    I sure didn't want to have thousands of our troops killed and spend at least a trillion dollars to enforce UN resolutions. Screw the UN.

    Yes. In the early 1980s Hussein used WMDs on the Iranians and on his own people. But we liked him then, he was our buddy, so it was okay, right?

    You were the one lauding ineffectual Clinton's actions, and that's what I responded to.

    Not supposing. I saw him there and he was there. If I said he wasn't there, then I would have been lying. Understand?


    You think Bush thought he told the truth and can't prove it, either.
    The fact is nothing can be proven as truth beyond any doubt. Sometimes you just have to look at the available evidence and make a judgement. Bush lied.


    Do you honestly believe Bush didn't lie or are you just supporting him because he's a republican? Had Clinton invaded and found no WMDs you would have crucified him, correct?

    Not lauding, but definitely considering his actions geometrically the the better of the two options.

    Course, this isn't about Clinton, its about Bush and the invasion.

    I agree with this. In fact, as I recall it, a lot of his base was fairly unhappy with the decision not to finish and looked at it as putting it on future administrations.

    I do agree with his decision, though.

    Thats precisely the point. The UN was impotent in their reponse. The world was impotent in their response. Following the firsat gulf war the UN inspection teams catalogued thousands og gallons of varying types of biological weapons and even more biological spores used for the creation of more weapons. They identified delivery systems. those remain unaccounted for. 11 years is a loong time to hide, sell, trade, bury, or perhaps even destroy weapons.

    Buddy? No...at the time he was seen as the lesser of two evils. Every president since the end of WW2 has identified the need to stop the south and westward expansion of the soviet union. When Carter lost Iran it was deemed necessary to create another alliance. Yes...Saddam was as ruthless and brutal and ugly in the 80's as always. No...we didnt condone it but yes...we overlooked it. Hindsight is a bitch, isnt it...especially hindsight from the comfort of an armchair where you have the luxury of other people making tough decisions and all you have to to is whine about their judgements.

    Unfortunately, you cannot Your defintion of a lie is invalid.
