Hmmm... lets see we live in a Democracy... with a senate..... with senators.... who get to see classified Information.....
-when ever a liberal describes the senate, or the Government in general they make it sound like Bush comes in, hand picks every body, tells them what to believe so that they can tell him "facts" that he can then tell to the senate so that they will do what he wants. No questions are asked, and only surface facts are given.
-this isn't how the game works, if the intelligence reports were blatantly false, the senate would have known it. over half of the democrats in the Senate wouldn't vote for something that was obviously false/very misleading/ w/e. The senate doesn't get their info exclusively form the president either.
obviously most of the senators on both sides of the isle thought that the info was credible, or they still supported the war anyways.
Yes there were many false reports of weapons being found, like pesticides next to gas masks and other mistakes that were poorly founded.
-there is no question that Saddam supported some terrorist groups, but not Al Queda directly, to claim that he funded them or was in cahoots with them I think is wrong
-But he wasn't enemies with them either, they had been reported to have gotten medical treatment in Iraq, and generally pass through there also .
Mobile lab that makes chemicals (gas) for use with weapons is confused for a mobile weapons lab that makes chemical (gas) nerve agents (weapons).
-Just a quick question. You see a truck(s) going around with artillery (which can be used to launch nerve agents). The truck makes gas of some kind for use with the artillery, what might you think?
-hmm truck+gas+artillery=gas for weather balloons, for use with artillery
-hmm close to truck+gas+artillery=gassed Iraqi enemies some years ago
==I know that if I saw trucks making gas for artillery (in a country that has gassed people before) I would immediately think oh it must be for the weather balloons used to aim the artillery!
-So do you think that Bush was some how able to Lie, convince every one in his cabinet to go along with it, most of the Dems in the senate, most all of the republicans, and heads of the Intelligence agencies, and some how also convince other countries with their own intelligence agencies of it also, and then on top of it all somehow pass it off to the UN!!
here read the UN report that should be enlightening, please note the amount of previous UN resolutions on Iraq that are mentioned, back to 1990
Text Of U.N. Iraq Resolution
NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2002
Recalling all its previous relevant resolutions, in particular its resolutions 661 (1990) of 6 August 1990, 678 (1990) of 29 November 1990, 686 (1991) of 2 March 1991, 687 (1991) of 3 April 1991, 688 (1991) of 5 April 1991, 707 (1991) of 15 August 1991, 715 (1991) of 11 October 1991, 986 (1995) of 14 April 1995, and 1284 (1999) of 17 December 1999, and all the relevant statements of its president,
Recalling also its resolution 1382 (2001) of 29 November 2001 and its intention to implement it fully,
Recognizing the threat Iraq's noncompliance with council resolutions and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and long-range missiles poses to international peace and security,
Recalling that its resolution 678 (1990) authorized member states to use all necessary means to uphold and implement its resolution 660 (1990) of 2 August 1990 and all relevant resolutions subsequent to resolution 660 (1990) and to restore international peace and security in the area,
Further recalling that its resolution 687 (1991) imposed obligations on Iraq as a necessary step for achievement of its stated objective of restoring international peace and security in the area,
Deploring the fact that Iraq has not provided an accurate, full, final, and complete disclosure, as required by resolution 687 (1991), of all aspects of its programs to develop weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles with a range greater than 150 kilometers, and of all holdings of such weapons, their components and production facilities and locations, as well as all other nuclear programs, including any which it claims are for purposes not related to nuclear-weapons-usable material,
so Bush got to the UN to? wow he gets around.
