    Have you read this yet ? -> Saddam Hussein Talks to the FBI

    Saddam Hussein said that he also was almost convinced he had WMD's.
    Thanks, Apacherat. That was a very good link and wow, what a plethera of information. Guess what I'm going to be reading tonight?

    I would agree. The second would be impeachable. That is why GW Bush was not.


    But not prosecutable.

    Re: What to Do with G.W. Bush?

    Paschendale said it clearly. "Blowjobs are bad and torture is OK." Paraphrased. There seems to be something partisan about that statement, even though the statement is clearly un-political. Is it bad to castigate an American icon with a fake ranch and folksy homilies a.k.a., Teddy Roosevelt and his Brooks Brothers buckskin suit? I generally think that the American public is a disjointed group of morons from a political perspective and always give credence to the quote that "You cannot underestimate the intelligence of the USA electorate."

That's not good enough, the UN cease fire agreement required that Iran account for every milligram of chemical that could be used as a weapon. But we did eventually found 400 mustard and sarin artillery shells buried in the desert. Is anyone concerned with the 50 that are unaccounted for ? For one to be lieing that person must be aware he's lieing. If Bush even believed there was a 1 % chance that Saddam had WMD's then he wasn't lieing.
    'We' found 400 chem arty projos??? I can't find anything supporting that, some reports of 36 mortar bombs, a few 155's leaking a substance off and on 'verified' as or not a chem weapon... but no cache of any size, more like the slop all armies have- 'We' still count account for thousands of AKs and millions of bucks we sent to Iraq.

    Now who with any sort of personal honor or integrity thinks if a statement has a 99% chance of being a lie it can still be uttered as the truth???

    BushII clung to the lie that a 1% chance to a threat gives us permission to attack anyone we see fit in 'defense' of 'freedom'.

    THAT theory would have the entire planet glowing for decades if any President had applied it to the Soviet Union. (and 'we' should all note that theory wasn't used with North Korea or Iran by President BushII....

    Re: What to Do with G.W. Bush?

    Look, there was also the missing tons of VX. How do we know he had VX, we had given it to him (NOT during Bush's terms). Never did find that. Not to mention the Al Samoud II, with the illegal range, even blind old Blix saw that as a violation.

    So what's next, gonna indict Clinton for the aspirin factory bombing?

    Yes! Analyze the intel on that as well. If indictments are indicated, do it. No more political bullcrap regarding any of them. Bush for torture and over 100,000 dead Iraqis. Obama for the Libyan debacle and the deaths associated with that. Then some honest "Media" for a change. This "War is good business" economy has to be dealt with. We seem to suffer from a National case of Optical Rectumitis. As regards the Samoud II and VX, you are reaching for straws. Iraq was no threat and did not deserve to have inumerable citizens killed by the USA. War is a serious last alternative, not a business option.

    Yes, but what we didn't hold Clinton responsible for was all of his wars.

    Bush was held accountable for his decisions.

    He was re-elected.

    Damn, that just has to piss some liberals like the OP off.

    if you had used "reasonable people" instead of "liberals" you would have been accurate

    I stand by what I said. If life has taught me anything, it's that the vast majority of liberals are not reasonable.
