That's exactly the reason, at that point im not sure Saddam could have done anything to stop invasion , but him expelling those inspectors and denying them access to certain areas brought the legal invasion and occupation<quoted text>
You have GOT to be kidding me.
What are you, 12? Were you just completely unaware of what the White House was saying during the run up to the war?
You think they sold the RED STATES on sending their children to war to protect the UN's right to go into a country and inspect it?
LOL. Seriously. Get a grip
by military force set out by the UN , though Bush did jump the gun a little your claim is wrong . They had the premise he had WMDs but the invasion was for non compliance , They did however find WMDs though not what or the amount they thought they would.
That's because the Russians help them evacuate them to Syria and those stockpiles are there now, and were taken by rebels in the revolution there. NO bull shit.
