“War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.”

Welchwarrior, you really ought to come clean and state the obvious truth: You are extremely prejudiced against George W Bush and you will inevitably say he is wrong/lied/is corrupt/whatever, in all situations that the opportunity arises. To sum up, you share the typical anti-Republican US President bias that most of Europe has, and they especially hate George W, probably more than any Republican President before him.
My dad, a History Professor, had a student this past Semester who was deeply involved in the Intelligence on Iraqi WMD's. The interesting thing is that, according to this gentleman's research, Saddam was quietly paying loads and loads of money to his weapons development experts to work on WMD's of all sorts. Because he was having to keep everyone in the world from seeing this, Saddam and his regime didn't have anyone monitering those people's work. They gave him regular updates, stating all about how they were making good progress and such. They made up details and success stories. They were also lying to Saddam the entire time, and just pocketing his money. For this reason, everyone including Saddam Hussein were 100% convinced that Iraq was developing and had WMD's. Essentially, everyone in Iraq who was asked by intelligence opperatives would have said, "No, I don't have any WMD's where I'm stationed, but I am 100% certain that _______ has them!" Everyone was sure that there were there including the Iraqis, and sadly enough, they were all the victims of a very big lie. And it never came to light until after the invasion because Saddam had the international community breathing down his neck. I just love that he got suckered!!
I will get everyone the source on this as soon as I have it.

So, has anyone actually read the material? Or are some of you folks just parroting what you heard last? Here is some of the material:
Sarin and Mustard gas found:
Bad Guys still at it:
Have the huge stockpiles of agents, or a nuke been found? No. Did Bush lie about the WMD's to gain support? I highly doubt it, GW got stuffed by bad intel, just like the UN and everyone else. We went to war with Iraq for many reasons beyond WMD's, unfortunately most of the people of the "free world", frankly have the attention span of a gnat, and have given up any kind of personal thought. WMD's were "sexy" so that's what was placed at the forefront, and Bush II got burned.
Personally, I wish the US didn't have to take this journey alone, oops misspoke, The US, Britain, and around 30 other nations. Though I did find it kinda funny that those nations that screamed "Imperialist America" and "Illegal War" before the war. were also were the nations that lost Billions of dollars in secret deals with Saddam.
The world is a big, scary place. Nothing is as clear as it seems when you really look at it. Its all about agenda's and money. Wake up, look around, and try to think for yourself. Iraq isn't the only war going on. Afganistan isn't the only "other" war. History is being played out, and being made. The people in the world had better wake up, and start asking why, and decide what side they are on based on their own research. Otherwise they and their nations will get plowed under by events.
Nothing happens in a vacuum. Quit repeating what you heard, and start thinking.
