America knew about these chemical weapons years before they went to war, because America was the one that gave them to them.

This doesnt matter anyway LOL. Many Iraqi officials have admitted to their WMD's as well as their shipment to Syria prior to the war. Iraq also used chemical weapons against the Kurds and the Iranians and that was a long time ago. They developed more weapons since then.

Fron the article:"It is not yet known whether the seven-metre rocket is armed with a warhead."
How could it be a WMD if they don't even know if it is armed? And even if it is armed, it would have to be armed with biological or chemical weapons to be a WMD.
Waste of time.

Oh I understand. I just wonder why the Daily Mail even suggested it was a WMD when there was no info in the article whatsoever to support that claim.
Perhaps somebody who is British could clarify. Is the Daily Mail extremely pro-Blair?

After all these years people are still trying to justify the war. WMD's to Syria? Really, Why didn't we go after them at all? Too many people are just emotionally invested in the U.S./U.K. being right. The moment i spot "lefties" or "liberals" in someone's rant I know not to take them seriously.
What was pictured is not a WMD no matter how much you want it to be.

So much easier to control large amounts of ignorant people than it is to control large amounts of educated and therefore smarter more intelligent people who have been equipped with the tools of understanding and rationality and logic.

I don't think you understand the definition of Weapons of Mass Destruction.
WMD means nuclear, chemical, or biological weapon.
An ICBM is not a weapon of mass destruction unless it has a nuclear payload (even if that is an ICBM)
Go back to your drawing board.
Every rogue nation has missiles armed with warheads. We knew Iraq had tons of conventional missiles. Everybody knew that. The only problem is when they are NUCLEAR, which they obviously weren't.
