GUEST,Arne Langsetmo BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq! (862* d) RE: BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq! 12 Nov 05

Teribus: Well, apparently George Bush believed it [that Saddam was a real threatto the US]."

Well, he can believe in the Invisible Pink Unicorn, Santa Claus, and flying monkeys, too (although I suspect that this would give me pause as to whether he was in need of stronger medications). But is it your contention that it's right and legal to go to war just because he believes something that ain't so?

With Saddam Hussein left in power and with the removal of sanctions, yes, Iraq would pose a threat to, ...

Yeah, and if wishes were fishes, if pigs had wings, and if cabbages were kings -- ummm, oops, never mind that last one, mon petit chou -- yes, I guess that perhaps beggars would ride and cows would jump over the moon. But there was quite a bit of dispute as to whether that would happen, and also as to what could or should be done about such and when, if such happened. In the meanwhile, Osama bin Forgotten managed to slip away. In fact, there was quite a bit of dispute about what to do if Saddam actually had WoMD in well-known places "north, south, eash and west around Baghdad and Tikrit", as the maladministration had assured us beyond doubt. War was only one of the options, and as Dubya said, it should be the "last resort", all the while making it the first and only one.... Doesn't this make you the least bit mad, Teribus?

Teribus again: ... lets recall the phraseology used by GWB, ...

Why? Are we going to have to parse him closely and carefully? ;-)

Teribus continues: ... The United States of America, the stability of the region, America's allies and the interests of the United States of America and those of her allies - Little Hawk it was never solely the threat to the US.

You must be tired from moving the goalposts around all over creation for Dubya so much. But I'd note that the interests of other nations are usually represented through the United Nations, and the United Nations refused to authorise Dubya's little war of choice. In fact, all of Iraq's neighbours refused to join the "Coalition of the Billing" this time around....
