Ok libs - you win, Bush lied about WMD's......then what is this?
"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
--President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998
"Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
--Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998
"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
--Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998
"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
-- Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998
"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
-Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998
"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
-- Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999
"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
Letter to President Bush, Signed by:
-- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001
"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them."
-- Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002
"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
-- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

The Tea party is the ones wasting money huh? Then how come your saivor Obongo has tripled the national debt in less than two years. Let me guess Bush's fault right? What about the fact that he's been in office TWO years and things haven't gotten better? Oh Bush again right? You people are stupid. It's much easier to blame someone else than to admit your savior is a fraud.

Saddam Husein failed to understand the western animal.
Once a certain threat level has been reached you are as good as dead regardless of public opinion or political party in power.
As long as you skirt this certain doom threat level you can masterfully exploit the west.
Iran is getting perilously close to triggering a massive response, it will be bloody and messy and self righteos Liberals will do lots of finger pointing etc. just the same old sad story repeating itself.
The west is totally reactive and never takes usefull proactive steps

Because people like to play monday morning quarterback. And when they do, they don't like to blame the people they like. So they blame the president, and the other side. Evidence. CNN, which are left leaning and don't like war asked the question(3 sec search.)
CNN and the newspaper USA Today concluded that 79% of Americans thought the Iraq War was justified, with or WITHOUTconclusive evidence of illegal weapons
49 countries were joined in a "coalition of the willing" in favor of forcibly removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq, with some number of other countries expressing their support in private. The 49 countries named by the White House were Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Colombia, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Eritrea, Estonia, Ethiopia, Georgia, Honduras, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Israel,Japan, Kuwait, Latvia, Lithuania, Republic of Macedonia, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Mongolia, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Palau, Panama, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Rwanda, Singapore, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Tonga, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States, and Uzbekistan. Of these, the following countries had an active or participant role, by providing either significant troops or political support: Australia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom and United States. In late January 2003, a statement released to various newspapers and signed by the leaders of Britain, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Hungary, Poland, Denmark and the Czech Republic showed support for the US, saying that Saddam should not be allowed to violate U.N. resolutions. The statement went on to say that Saddam was a "clear threat to world security", and urged Europe to unite with the United States to ensure that the Iraqi regime is disarmed. In the Netherlands the first Balkenende cabinet supported the USA. After that government fell in October 2002, there were new elections in January, which were won by the Second Balkenende cabinet who chose to continue their predecessors' policy. Dutch soldiers were sent to Iraq.
The intelligence communities of every major country were confident that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction before 2003. These include the United States, Canada, France, the United Nations, the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Australia, Japan, even Iran and a slew of others. It was a working assumption that such WMD was in Iraq,
So yea bush lied and suckered a billion people. He's lex luthor I tell you. We as americans need to shut up and accept we screwed up. Either that or he secreted them out like his military staff have said. But you will still find people mostly on the left who don't know nothing other than what they are told. You can always pick them out. They call bush a liar and murderer. and then it usually covers all right leaning people after that. Case in point just read the answers to this question. there the closed minded, non history knowing sheep of the untra left.

I have the book by Georges Sada, the only christian general in sadams iraqi armed forces, titled "Saddam's secrets," in which he exposes plans by saddam to hide weapons of mass destruction, destroy israel and saudi arabia and control the arab world.
in it he tells about saddam's project to build an atomic bomb and when the invasion became imminent all of the atomic bomb equipment was moved to syria.the entire story was told to the american media, but for some reason they never told the american public the truth about it.
he also tells about saddam's poison gas exploits when he used gas onn the kurds twice and how he dispatched 2 airplanes with poison gas bombs to be dropped on the saudis, but they were both shot down soon after crossing the border.
the american media repeatedly accused Bush of lying about saddam having weapons.
In my opinion, the media is dominated by communist oriented people who wanted to elect the present president to enable him to destroy our free country and replace freedom with another regime.I believe that is why they lied repeatedly about Bush and are still lying about him.

Bush lead the fight to Iraq, so he bears more responsibility than those that also had concerns about Iraq. But they are also responsible. Whatever happened, the intel was wrong, and that's a pretty tough thing to face, going to war on false pretenses. Here's Bush admitting "The main reason we went to Iraq was we thought he had WMD, it turns out he didnt."
Even if the did have WMD- so what? Most countries have weapons, that doesn't give us the right to attack them.Source(s): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_A77N5WKWM
