no current stock piles of WMDs have been found in Iraq
That is not true...
ATS WMD's Found
ATS WMD's Found
Fox News WMD's Found
Also there were numerous reports from Military Field Officers of the discovery of numerous caches of Gas Containers, Bio Research Materials etc...
Also the question as to what Saddam used to "Gas" all those thousands of Kurds has gone unanswered. I mean if the Libs are correct and their were no
WMDs, did Saddam "fart" them into non-existence?
Also pertinent is the FACT that our operations in Iraq were not commensurate upon WMD's alone. In fact in light of the violations of UN sanctions and
the shooting at our aircraft, WMD's were down the list in the speech, if you recall...
However, be that as it may, it was a forgone conclusion that no matter what the Military found, it was going to be discounted by the Liberals as too
little, too old, too few or too irrelevant.
After they obviously changed their stance 180 degrees, they could not of course admit to an error; Libs never can.
So after testing the air and finding the usual anti-war sentiment starting, (See Vietnam) they, as always, went with the political wind instead of
standing by their convictions; as our President has stood by his.
I don't think any Republican thought the insurgency would "go away", I do however believe that it was a surprise that so many foreign fighters were
causing the majority of the problems. I believe it took them somewhat by surprise that 80+ percent of the combatants are from neighboring countries
and not from Iraq... But that is another thread entirely..
The fact remains...
Either they stood by their convictions.. (President Bush)
Or they waffled in the face of political pressure.. (See the video)
