How did I mis-represent the article in context to a reason for the Iraq war?
Was it not developed by Saddam while in control of Iraq?
Yes but this was yellow cake that was safe guarded by the UN and under their control. It was known by all and was not considered a threat. You misrepresented the article by implying that this was the WMD that we went to war over. Not true. This yellow cake was not a threat, it was under the control of the UN.
Fact is Saddam had developed and used WMDs' many, many times before and was not co-operating with the inspectors.
Scott Ritter and Hans Blix will tell you differently but what would they know. They were never able to finish their inspections because the US decided not to let them finish their work.

Try this again...
My point was that with Saddam left in power he would always be a threat, to everybody, including his own people, no?
Iraq is moving towards a democratic society and we need more of those in the ME, no?
Have we not liberated a majority of the iraqi citizens from violent tyranny?
