Was Saddam a WMD?

>> Wednesday, October 13, 2004

OK, so we are hearing that Iraq had no WMDs. Our intellegence- and everyone else's- was wrong. Hindsight being what it is, let's just leave that alone.

This new article tells of finding more mass graves.


Shocked investigators reported finding "thighbones the size of matchsticks" at what they believe is the site of one of Saddam Hussein's atrocities. Among the findings-were the skeletons of unborn babies and toddlers clutching toys.

A baby had been shot in the back of its head and was found still being clutched by its mother, who had been shot in the face. The discovery was reported as Tony Blair came under mounting pressure to apologise to Parliament for the misleading intelligence claiming Saddam had weapons of mass destruction.

It will strengthen the Prime Minister's case that despite the intelligencefailures the war to topple the Iraqi dictator was justified by his record as a mass killer of his own people.


Some 300,000 people are thought to have been killed during Saddam's regime. Iraq's human rights ministry has reportedly identified 40 possible mass graves across the country.


In my opinion that makes Saddam & his regime a WMD unto itself.

He is that and much more than I am sure I should not say in a public forum.

Liberals would rather operate on hindsight info than give in & say " OK, he was a real danger regardless of WMDs". You know, our President has to operate on the information he has in the present time; he doesn't have the luxury of waiting around to see if we are going to be attacked. I prefer pre-emptive strikes over reacting to another attack on our own soil. Unfortunately, it's a "damned if you do; damned if you don't" situation.

The disconnect between what we see on the ground in Iraq and what Kerry and company are selling

How can the media say there was no WMD in Iraq when they themselves know that soldiers and reporters had to betreated for nerve gas exposure. The goal posts moved so much that even when the terrorists used a sarin gas shell in a roadside bomb, it was no big deal.
