1) George Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. This is a charge that has been repeated ad nauseum by opponents of the war, but the claim that Bush "lied" about stockpiles of WMDs doesn't hold up to the least bit of scrutiny
The war in Iraq was actually planned by people like Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and Paul Wolfowitz
While there may not be evidence that Saddam and Al-Qaeda cooperated in attacks on the United States, the evidence that Saddam Hussein's Iraq and Al-Qaeda worked together is absolutely undeniable.
I mean, why are all of the political conspiracies aimed at the right? I haven't heard a single decent left aimed conspiracy since Clinton/CIA/Mena airport!?!

Nathraq, I have no doubt that you have made strong assertions that were found to be incorrect.
Are you a liar, or do you share the baffoon crown with Shrub?
Me? Of course I've been wrong. But I am neither a liar or a baffoon. I know better than to think that just because one is incorrect, one is anything more than human, I'm just applying your rules to you.
Excellent post but it'll do no good. I've pointed all these things out, but when the mind is welded shut by hate, no amount of fact will break it open.

Of course Saddam had WMD's. Every year during Bill Clinton's presidency!

[The right is pushing for war and fascism. The left simply stalls and delays it. That's about the gist of it. If Hillary got into office, which I doubt will happen, there would be less war-mongering and right-wing, fascist nuts out, but the US would be no better of a country for it; only getting worse more gradually. Both sides of the aisle are corrupt.

Why then my ignorant friend were there maps of Iraq layed out on the table at the energy policy meeting chaired by Cheney himself prior to 9-11?
The fact that Bush co. had plans to invade Iraq is beyond dispute.
You want to talk about ties to terrorism? Heh, look no further than your own television set. The Cia was meeting with Osama Bin Laden a few weeks beofre 9-11 in Dubai, the man that wire Atta $100,000 was meeting with Senate Intelligence Committee members the morning of... The only WMD that we know for sure Sadaam had were the ones we still had the recipts for.

Holy crap. I'm sure ferretman will appologize now, twitchy. We had no idea that you had that kind of knowledge.
So, you are one of them, huh?
You were in that meeting with Cheney. And you know for sure that deal with Bin Laden took place. I know you would never be just reading # off the Internet by people that really have no clue has to what is happening themselves. You must have an amazing job running around having all the inside knowledge. How else would you possibly know all that information.... unless your reading it off the Internet (with no real proof of it happening) by other people like you that don't know what they are really talking about either.

The only difference is that Clinton never made the mistake of invading to find out for sure. But it doesn't matter. Stop playing the partisan game. You were both wrong. There's no excuse for this war.
