GUEST,Songbob BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq! (862* d) RE: BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq! 15 Feb 11


I read a comment elsewhere today that I think is pretty telling.

When we invaded Iraq, we went in headlong, expecting and getting very little resistance.

Why? If we truly thought Saddam had WMD, why were we not more cautious? Why the headlong rush to Baghdad?

Why?

Because the powers that ordered the invasion KNEW THERE WOULD BE NO WMD RESPONSE! If they'd expected them, they'd not have done it the way they did, and risk a huge casualty count that the public would fault them for.

They went in unafraid, because they KNEW there was little to fear.

And no, they didn't know this because they'd monitored Syria, either, since the weapons didn't go there. They didn't go anywhere because they didn't exist. We've found lots of conventional, aging artillery shells, etc., but nothing "scary" or unusual. They didn't exist.

And the war-planners, the war-mongers, selling us this shell game?

They knew.

They knew.

They knew, and they went.

And we know the rest.

Bob
