For the people who keep insisting that Bush lied because
no weapons of mass destruction were found:
READ THIS QUOTE FROM MY ORIGINAL POST:
The fact that no weapons ever turned up was beside the point.
It was never stated that Iraq had nuclear weapons, NEVER!
It was stated that he was probably hiding a nuclear weapons
program for development.
It does you no good to keep insisting that no weapons were
found; therefore, Bush lied.
The point is Bush never said there were Nuclear weapons in
Iraq, as the New York Times article insisted that he said
and as all the imbeciles that keep insisting that Bush said it.
The point is Bush said that Saddam was suspected of hiding
a nuclear weapons program. The point is that UN inspections
failed because Saddam refused cooperation on the interview
of nuclear scientist. Go back and read it, its all there.
Whats more I do not need links to prove this. It is fresh
enough in most peoples mind that they remember once their
memory is jogged. This was witnessed by millions right on
the news. Also remember, if Saddam had complied with
the UN inspectors for interview of the nuclear scientist,
the invasion would never have taken place, because he
appeared to be cooperating with the inspectors as far
as chemical and biological weapons were concerned.
You want a link that proved what Bush said, OK, here are
some quotes from his speech of "October 7, 2002"
"It is seeking nuclear weapons".......(the It is Iraq)
"why be concerned now; about the link between Iraq
developing weapons of terror, and the wider war on terror."
Notice in the two above quotes it was not said that Iraq
had nuclear weapons. It made reference to developing them.
It was noted in the speech Saddams past use of chemical
and other weapons also, but these had been established
facts and were used in the context which had advocated
getting UN inspectors back in to clear up these charges
along with the ones of developing nuclear weapons.
A link to the speech if you want to read it all is:
I can give some other links also, if needed, and probably
even better ones than this, but I found this one in
about 2 minutes. Mostly I was going on what Bush said
in news broadcasts, on Fox, CNN, etc.
So there is a link with Bushes actual words showing
his fear that Iraq was hiding a program to develop
nuclear weapons, and I gave a link in the original post
to the book published by Iraq's top nuclear scientist
that, in fact, Bush's fear had been correct.
I know people are going to keep insisting that no weapons
were found, but it means nothing since Bush never did say
the weapons (nukes) were there. As far as the chemical weapons
were concerned, it was an established fact that they had
had them. It was an established fact that Saddam kicked
UN inspectors out before these charges and inspections
could be played out, so suspicion here was warranted also.
It was an established fact, as I said, witnessed by
millions, that the 2nd UN inspections broke down because
Iraq refused to comply with UN inspections on the
interview of nuclear scientist away from the control
of the Iraqi leadership. It is an established fact
that the nuclear program had been hidden away under
orders from the top in Iraq, as proved when the program
information, plans, drawings, and prototype centrifuges were
dug up and the top scientist laid out all the details.
All these facts are established; therefore, Bush was
correct, not lying when he said that Iraq was suspected
of hiding a nuclear program.
