Boone, that's pretty weak. I don't seem to recall Colin Powell's mentioning anything about 1980's WMD's in his UN address. Come to think of it, I don't recall anyone saying anything about WMD's from the 80's. The WMD story we were all sold was a story of current WMD's being manufactured, and you and I both know that. You can try to justify that all you want, but we both know the truth.
As far as the UN resolutions, the UN doesn't set policy for the USA. But if you want to go on invasion due to UN resolutions, I guess Israel is next, right? I know you are extremely upset about them violating numerous UN resolutions regarding illegally occupying land. And I'm sure you are extremely upset that they started their nuclear program in secret and lied about it, because that is the same thing Iran is being blamed for. And how exactly do you know Saddam violated all those resolutions? The same people that told us that also told us WMD's, yellow cake uranium, ties to Al-Queda, meetings with AL-Queda leaders, we know exactly where the WMD's are, greeted as liberators, Iraq oil will fund the reconstruction, mobile chemical weapons labs, mushroom cloud ..... There's an old saying in Tennessee and it goes: Fool me once, uhhh, shame ... shame on you ... fool me ... can't get fooled again!
I'll help refresh your memory.

The last time I checked, the Iran-Iraq cease-fire was agreed to in 1998.
If we consider just one category of missing weaponry-- 6,500 bombs from the Iran-Iraq war --UNMOVIC says the amount of chemical agent in them would be in the order of 1,000 tons. These quantities of chemical weapons are now unaccounted for. Source
I am very happy that both of us, now, know the truth.

Rumsfeld's comment on March 30, 2003: "We know where they [WMD] are. They're in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south and north somewhat."
