Seems like it wasn't only Bush that thought there were WMD's

Here's some quote to remind you of that...


Quite a crucial difference, huh? An innocent thought or an action that caused thousands of people to die.

Perhaps Clinton wouldn't have made the choice to invade Iraq as the evidence that Saddam Hussein possessed Weapons of Mass Destruction was unavailable. A logical conclusion would have been to give the UN inspectors more time instead of invading a country on suspicions.

And this is how the situation was in the month before the invasion:


Mr Blix said he welcomed intelligence from governments such as the United States on the hunt for WMD, but said: "Inspectors, for their part, must base their reports only on evidence, which they can, themselves, examine and present publicly. Without evidence, confidence cannot arise."

Mr Blix said weapons inspectors have "not found any such weapons, only a small number of empty chemical munitions, which should have been declared and destroyed".

But he added: "Another matter, and one of great significance, is that many proscribed weapons and items are not accounted for." Iraq must account for the status of anthrax, VX gas and long-range missiles, Mr Blix said.

He said: "One must not jump to the conclusion that they exist. However, that possibility is also not excluded. If they exist, they should be presented for destruction." If they do not exist, credible evidence to that effect should be presented, he said.

On the important issue of Iraqi cooperation, he said access to sites had been free of problems but that it could improve, particularly in allowing unfettered access to interview scientists. Numbers of Iraqi minders had fallen from a ratio of up to five per inspector, to around 1:1.

Mr Blix also told the security council:

· Inspections are bridging the gaps in knowledge on Iraqi arms

· Inspectors have taken 200 chemical samples and 100 biological samples

· Iraq has accepted an offer from South Africa to give advice on how to win confidence in its disarmament programme

· Private interviews with three Iraqi scientists "proved informative"

· Unfettered interviews with Iraqi scientists would be the best way for Iraq to convince inspectors it has no weapons of mass destruction, but none have so far been secured on the weapons inspectors' terms

· 50 litres of mustard gas have been found, a third of which has already been destroyed

· Some 250 inspectors, from 60 countries, are now in Iraq

Off topic but flabergasting:


Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon launched a savage attack yesterday on critics of the Government's hawkish stance over Iraq, warning Britain would not 'sit idly by until hundreds or thousands are killed'.

In the clearest signal yet that conflict in the Gulf is now imminent, he warned it would be an abdication of responsibility 'on a massive scale' to do nothing about Saddam Hussein's development of weapons of mass destruction.

Article continues
'There are those who will never be convinced until that missile with its weapons of mass destruction warhead is fired, or until terrorists are aided in carrying out a WMD attack on one of our cities,' Hoon warned in a message to British service people.

'By then it will be too late. The Government is not prepared to sit idly by until hundreds or thousands are killed before acting, and those who argue otherwise should look long and hard at themselves too.'


No wonder many others, including myself believed that Saddam Hussein formed a threat. Things can change rapidly.

So what you are saying is Rice should resign her position because she has no children?


NO, she should have the decency and decorum of resigning from the Bush cabinet for the mess we have in Iraq that she has been a major player in it.

With already over 3000 sons and daughters death, but instead she is the last of the Bush administration that is clinging to bush crusade.

Resign Ms. Condi and do a service to this nation.

Condi should resign because there were people killed during a war?
What kind a precedent would that set for future conflicts?

What would the threshold be?
After the first thousand, you get a pink slip.

I'm calling for Boxer to resign.

According to her comments, a single, childless woman, could never become President of the United States. But an idiot like Dirty Sheehan would be eligible?

Where is NOW (National Organization of Women)? How do they feel about this? Are they still active as an organization?

Barbara Boxer is a disgrace to the nation. I think she has some personal vendetta against Condi, as this is not the first time she's turned a hearing into a dramatic circus with her attacking Miss Rice. It'd be nice if she would resign, but there's no way...and probably Californians will keep electing her.

They are defending the dying ideology that the Republican party of conservatives used to have.

What else will bring people to go blind over the truth.
