WMD, Iraq war, Left wing lies, Truth about Saddam Hussein and WMD
The end justifies the means for the far left in this country. The same far left that has taken over the Democrat Party. This means they will lie at any opportunity. Obama is the poster child for left wing lies.
One of the big lies perpetrated by the left is that there were no WMD in Iraq even though most well informed people know that he used them on his own people. Even so called educated people around me have short memories or have been brainwashed by the mainstream media.
Consider the following quotes leading up to the Iraq war.
“Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons,”
“Earlier today I ordered America’s armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces,”
“Their mission is to attack Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors,”
“Along with Prime Minister (Tony) Blair of Great Britain, I made it equally clear that if Saddam failed to cooperate fully we would be prepared to act without delay, diplomacy or warning,”
“In halting our airstrikes in November, I gave Saddam a chance — not a license. If we turn our backs on his defiance, the credibility of U.S. power as a check against Saddam will be destroyed,”
“If Saddam can cripple the weapons inspections system and get away with it, he would conclude the international community, led by the United States, has simply lost its will,”
“He would surmise that he has free rein to rebuild his arsenal of destruction.”
“The best way to end that threat once and for all is with a new Iraqi government — a government ready to live in peace with its neighbors, a government that respects the rights of its people,”
“Saddam Hussein and the other enemies of peace may have thought that the serious debate currently before the House of Representatives would distract Americans or weaken our resolve to face him down,”
“But once more, the United States has proven that although we are never eager to use force, when we must act in America’s vital interests, we will do so.”
President Bush remarks?
No, all were made by President Clinton.
And these were just a few of the strident remarks that Clinton made.
From Wired October 23, 2010.
“By late 2003, even the Bush White House’s staunchest defenders were starting to give up on the idea that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
But WikiLeaks’ newly-released Iraq war documents reveal that for years afterward, U.S. troops continued to find chemical weapons labs, encounter insurgent specialists in toxins and uncover weapons of mass destruction.”
“Meanwhile, the second battle of Fallujah was raging in Anbar province. In the southeastern corner of the city, American forces came across a “house with a chemical lab … substances found are similar to ones (in lesser quantities located a previous chemical lab.” The following day, there’s a call in another part of the city for explosive experts to dispose of a “chemical cache.”
Nearly three years later, American troops were still finding WMD in the region. An armored Buffalo vehicle unearthed a cache of artillery shells “that was covered by sacks and leaves under an Iraqi Community Watch checkpoint. “The 155mm rounds are filled with an unknown liquid, and several of which are leaking a black tar-like substance.” Initial tests were inconclusive. But later, “the rounds tested positive for mustard.””
I would like to add something else for the simple minded or brainwashed out there. Just because something is not found, is not proof that it doesn’t exist.
