The "No WMD In Iraq" propaganda was always known to be a left-wing lie propagated as part of their anti-war, anti-Bush agenda from the

Sorry, I felt the need to reiterate this post in its proper context...
Well Doc...the reason why everyone knew it was a lie was for this little reason...
WE SOLD HIM THE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION THAT HE HAD. WE SOLD HIM THE BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS THAT HE USED AGAINST THE KURDS, THE IRANIANS, AND HIS OWN
PEOPLE. IT WAS US ALL ALONG. And Israel was a part of the whole picture as well.
So, although I am in definite agreement with you that United States officials were aware that he had weapons,...Sadaam wouldn't have had a slingshot
if we hadn't made it for him and given him the instruction manual.
Just an observation.
So, just to say it twice...
The reason why our country was SO SURE that Sadaam had WMD was because we were aware of his inventory. Why were we aware of his inventory??? Because
we were responsible for giving him his inventory, and we were well aware of the type of person he was when we gave it to him.
Then we run around practicing "Indian Giving." (This, by the way, is a term that really has no merit, but since everyone already knows its meaning,
I thought I would apply it here.) As a matter of fact, that phrase just brings up another holocaust that happened before we were even established as
a country. I'll be quick with this one. The English come to a foreign land. They befriend the natives. They learn how to farm and utilize the
land to support themselves...Then, they slaughter the natives, push them off their land, and make up names against them to justify their actions.
Indian Givers, savages, yada yada, blah blah.
Anyway...back to the topic.
We didn't care that Sadaam had killed thousands. We were well aware of it while it was occurring but chose to let him do it, just in case we needed
propaganda against him later. As a matter of fact, we helped fund it all the way to the point until Sadaam had gotten greedy and chose to invade
Kuwait. But as you're well aware, Kuwait was a no no because it affected our economic interests. So, in other words, our weapons not only killed
Kurds, Iraqis, Iranians, and thousands of others, but, they also went towards killing some of our own soldiers and many of which came back with nasty
symptoms that we properly coined, "Gulf War Syndrome."
So...yeah Doc. We knew he had weapons. The conservatives and the liberals all played that part quite well. But, I do want to add
something...according to this info, at around the year 2000, your conservatives claiming that he had no weapons at all. Can you explain that to
And I might want to add, this information came from the CIA concerning Sadaam's capabilities in 2000. There is no liberal agenda here, this was all
So, although you're using this as a way to refuel some wonderful agenda to further the idea that we've done the right thing, I doesn't jive. I
will say this though Doc, you're a good member and I have agreed with many of your assessments before.
