After reading this thread a thought popped into my mind. Why didn't GWB have a lab ready to go so that when they marched into Iraq a secret intelligence unit could quickly set it up and then yell, "VOILA!" Here is the reason we had to invade.
It would have made his life so much easier.

Offering the official administration response to FOX News, a senior Defense Department official pointed out that the chemical weapons were not in useable conditions.
"This does not reflect a capacity that was built up after 1991," the official said, adding the munitions "are not the WMDs this country and the rest of the world believed Iraq had, and not the WMDs for which this country went to war."
".........500 weapons munitions which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent"

I would like to know more about this. If I'm not mistaken, didn't we find chemical/chemical laced artillery this go-around?

Why don't we have some folk's go on record with what it would take to convince them? How many, weapon's what type? More interesting than hearing the tired old liberal 'blame America - defend saddam' garbage.
