Carol, show us the Iraqi WMDs.
You can't? What a surprise.
Are really you THAT fkn stupid?
Yesterday, troops at a training facility in the western Iraqi desert came across a bottle labelled "tabun," a nerve gas and chemical weapon Iraq is banned from possessing.
Closer to Baghdad, troops at Iraq's largest military industrial complex found nerve agent antidotes, documents describing chemical warfare and a white powder that appeared to be used for explosives.
UN weapons inspectors went repeatedly to the vast al Qa Qaa complex, most recently on March 8. But they found nothing during spot visits to some of the 1,100 buildings at the site 40 kilometres south of Baghdad.
Col. John Peabody, engineer brigade commander of the 3rd Infantry Division, said troops found thousands of five-centimetre by 12-centimetre boxes, each containing three vials of white powder, together with documents written in Arabic that dealt with how to engage in chemical warfare.
A senior U.S. official familiar with initial testing said the powder was believed to be explosives. The finding would be consistent with the plant's stated production capabilities in the field of basic raw materials for explosives and propellants.
According to UN weapons inspectors, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the Iraqis filled warheads and artillery shells with explosives at the site and manufactured bomb casings there. The activities, for conventional weaponry, were allowed under UN resolutions. But the resolutions, passed after the 1991 Gulf War, ban Iraq from possessing chemical, biological and nuclear weapons and the long-range missiles to deliver them.
Peabody told an Associated Press reporter that troops at al Qa Qaa also discovered atropine, used to counter the effects of nerve agents, and 2-Pam chloride, which is used in combination with atropine in case of chemical attack.

"Now this war will not be like the war against Iraq a decade ago, with a decisive liberation of territory and a swift conclusion. It will not look like the air war over Kosovo two years ago, where no ground troops were used and not a single American was lost in combat. Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign, unlike any we have ever seen. It may include dramatic strike, visible on TV, and covert operations, secret even in success. We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against the other, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime."

Address to Joint Session of Congress Following 9/11 Attacks

Here libtards. Read the words and quit your lying. Notice that last sentence: From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime.
Saddam Hussein was known to be paying $25,000 to the families of suicide bombers in Israel. A fact!!! Spin that!!!

OK, now that the damage is done and Obama didn't help, he will be at his best to politicize and do the leftwing agenda thing with the Boston terrorists. As President Axlerod said, never let a good disaster go to waste!

Over your head, phag. My message to an alien nutjob like you was:
Bush went into Iraq, and the Democrats also voted to use force because of what they were told by the intelligence community.
Get an adult to explain it to you, if you can't read, moron.
DFL.
The CIA did not brief Congress. All representations of intelligence were made by Bush and Cheney who cherry-picked it through OSP as I mentioned in my previous email.

Your verdict upon the Democrats who voted for war is not binding since they were misled.

Former senior CIA analyst, Paul Pillar, had this to say regarding the administration's handling of intelligence:

"It has become clear that official intelligence was not relied on in making even the most significant national security decisions, that intelligence was misused publicly to justify decisions already made, that damaging ill will developed between [Bush] policymakers and intelligence officers, and that the intelligence community's own work was politicized.

Pillar further wrote that the prewar intelligence asserted Hussein's "weapons capacities," but he said the "broad view" within the United States and overseas "was that Saddam was being kept 'in his box' " by U.N.(Clinton) sanctions, and that the best way to deal with him was through "an aggressive inspections program to supplement sanctions already in place."

The mustard gas you refer to was used BEFORE Gulf War I around 1987-1988. At that time, Iraq was not under any treaty obligation to disarm.

The prohibitions against WMDs did not go into effect until AFTER Gulf War I. And no evidence of functional stockpiles of mustard gas or other WMDs existed at the time Bush and Cheney began making their case. 1988 is not 2003, you fukn GOP bonehead.

The Iraq Survey Group which was created to find them never did.

This leaves you clowns scrambling desperately for table scraps.

Table scraps you shall not have.

The 550 tons of yellowcake uranium was unprocessed, non-weapons grade and had been under UN custodianship before the war. It was fully accounted for after Coalition forces seized it.

Some pits were excavated which revealed remnants of liquified mustard gas which had been dumped there to get rid of it in accord with Iraq's obligation to disarm in 1991.

A few disassembled missile engines were also discovered with no warheads attached to them.

Absolutely no evidence of nuclear weapons production.

You are busted, broken and dead in this debate.

Hannity's Secret Sources Validate Newest Bogus Boston Bombing Conspiracy: Deportation Of Saudi Witness (That Isn't Happening!)
Yesterday, a senior law enforcement officer with ICE told "The Blaze," Glenn Beck's website, which advanced the rumor about the deportation, that the rumor was "categorically false" and that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi "was never in custody and never considered for deportation" but there a different Saudi being held "on grounds unrelated to the Boston bombing." The Obama administration told "The Hill" (3PM yesterday) that the rumor was false and that the other Saudi is being deported for an "administrative immigration violation."

Right You were defending Bush's declaration of Bon Laden Being irrelevant & said killing him did nothing. i.e. a waste of time.
First, this shows how dumb you are. The elimination of the Al Qaeda leadership definitely hurt that organization. Secondly, Bin Laden was a fund raiser for the organization.
Taking out the Al Qaeda leadership has been very effective.
But hey, you keep defending your pal & hero George W Bush.

Critics will claim that no gains could be worth the price we paid [in Iraq]-- over 4,400 lost lives and untold hundreds of billions of dollars. But we paid a far higher price in the Korean War (36,000 dead). Few would have thought in 1953 that this war, which ended with a deadlocked and ravaged peninsula, was a raging success. The outcome looks considerably better nearly six decades later, now that South Korea has become one of the most prosperous and freest countries in the world.

The Korean War held back communism from the North supported by China from taking over the South.
North Korean leaders and military don't consider their own citizens as human beings. Entire families are imprisoned in the numerous gulags, tortured, starved and executed on a routine basis because one family member escaped to the South or inadvertently disgraced the leader who the North Korean population literally worship as a god.
I'm pretty sure South Korea is grateful for their freedom on our behalf.
If you have 45 minutes, look at the National Geographic's documentary "Inside North Korea".
You will see things differently. I guarantee it.
Again I ask, out of the 33 nations the US has bombed and/or invaded since 1946, which one was to protect our freedom?
.
Footnote: Of all the nations the US has ever bombed and/or invaded they have had one major item in common. The US NEVER goes in on a nation that has nukes. This is why Iran needs a nuke. It's their only protection from the US.
