Weapons of Mass Destruction

Everyone is going on and on about how Bush and the Bushies lied about Iraq's WMDs to get us into this war. Many seem to feel that without the administration's comments, no one could ever imagine that Hussein had WMDs. "How could that have been possible?" seems to to be the sentiment.

What they all are apparently blocking from their memories is that Hussein had not only developed Chemical Weapons in the past, he used them!!!! Just ask Iran, or the Kurds, or the Shia. For that matter, the only reason Hussein did not have a nuclear program is that the Isrealis blew up his reactor in 1981. A reactor built the France by the way. The French goverment and Hussein have been in cahoots for a long time just look at the where the majority of the corruption in the Oil for Food scandal was, or the fact that the forged Niger documents were actually provided by French intelligence.

To sit back now and go there was absolutely no reason that any rational person would suspect that Hussein had WMDs is absurd. Chris Dodd came very close this this on Imus this morning. Maybe Dodd and his ilk should go read some history before becoming quite so sanctimonious.

Did the US support Hussein in the 80's as a counterweight to Iran? Yes, with out a doubt.

Did the US ever supply him with the means to develop chemical weapons? Far more unlikely. I have never seen any evidence supporting this idea.

One of the important points that people need to remember about the situation in Iraq, is that no matter how we got there, and what the history is, we currently have entanglement there and that must be successfully concluded.
