Not Cheney - the CIA and Britain's MI-6 provided intelligence for weapons of mass destruction...which, of course, Saddam had but were trucked to Syria.
And Valeria Plame's, who worked for the CIA, Husband made a trip to Africa where he had been an Ambassador where he found no sale of Yellow Cake nor evidence of any kind, that any Yellow Cake had left that Country for Iraq! he came back and told Everybody who had a need to know what the had found , including Bush and Cheney...and they would not pay attention to him. So, he wrote an OP-ED piece for the New York Times telling the same thing...and they still went ahead with the Plans to invade Iraq, anyway...and went after his Wife because he told the World that there was no way there could be WMD's in Iraq because the didn't have the necessary ingredients to make them! The U.N. Inspectors had been saying the very same thing...NO EVIDENCE OF WMD'S!
And Bush/Cheney actually diverted Troops on their way to Afghanistan who were going after Bin Laden, and sent them to Iraq!
Gotta have those OIL RIGHTS above everything and ALL else! They're worth BIG, BIG Money for Bush/Cheney and their Big Oil Buddies!

Yes, Saddam was so caring he utilized chemical weapons against his own people and set up torture rooms for those who did not share his worldview.
He used Chemical weapon on the Kurds, they were NOT his People in his way of thinking! They were a different Tribe than his!

I have no idea how much money Linda has, and obviously, it's none of my business...but anyone who thinks they have enough money to avoid a "state facility" in their old age, might just be mistaken about that.
A quick look around at some of the folks who in my younger years were considered wealthy, tells me that wealth can be like youth and beauty, gone before you know it.
I will go out on a limb and say that nobody posting on this thread is immune from the fate of a state facility, and it doesn't take many mistakes, or acts of God to get there.

For the record, 40% the Democrat Representatives voted for the Iraq war and 58% of Democrat Senators did too.
If an elementary school teacher tells her class that Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1508, the majority of students will answer "1508" on the test. This is a poor justification for that war.

It is not meant as justification of anything. I pointed out to Sassy that Democrats supported the Iraq war with their votes in Congress.

Anyway, Chinese admiral Zheng He, the Vickings, and Portuguese were all in America prior to Columbus. I'm not sure what that has to do with the Iraq war - but you brought it up.
