Libs Still Getting Away With Claims Of "No WMD's"...
« on: September 29, 2014, 11:12:03 PM »
The average lib gets to reap the benefits of sliming conservatives with virtually no fear of reprisals...

It's like a modern day ancient wonder of the world.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

I remember Desert Fox. I was a young private in first brigade, 3rd ID and was deployed to Kuwait in February '98. Wound up sitting in the desert for 5 months,doing show of force maneuvers by the Iraqi border.

We were ready to move north rapidly. It never happened, but we at least got a good gunnery rotation in. Although we had to chase the camels away from down range every morning.

I remember prior to us going, there was a town hall meeting on the news. President Clinton and the CJCS were trying to explain why we needed to send troops to Iraq. And IIRC, WMD's were one of the main reasons they gave.

The ignorance of these people astounds me. Do they seriously think they will not be called out on this? That's like Kerry not thinking he would be called out by the swifties. Weapons-grade stupidity at it's most refined.
“Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms”

The truth is that Saddam thought he had a heavy-duty WMD program - including chem, bio, and nuke components - but all three were being run by Arabs, so most of the money went into Swiss bank accounts and window dressing instead of the actual projects.

That makes sense, if Sadaam thought he had them, it explains his actions and reactions.

550 tons of yellowcake. That would make a passel full of dirty bombs.
My vote based on just that 1 finding is that Iraq under Hussein had stockpiles of WMDs, and that any lib assertions otherwise are complete lying falsehoods.

Now there is this

Quote
American troops were exposed to chemical weapons multiple times in the years following the 2003 invasion of Iraq, while the Pentagon kept their discoveries of the expired or degraded weapons secret from investigators, fellow soldiers, and military doctors, according to a published report.

The New York Times reported late Tuesday that American troops reported finding approximately 5,000 chemical warheads, shells, or aviation bombs in the years following the 2003 invasion of Iraq. On at least six occasions, soldiers were wounded by those weapons, which had been manufactured before 1991. In all, the paper reported that 17 U.S. soldiers and seven Iraqi police officers were exposed to chemical agents during the war. The U.S. government said its number was slightly higher, but did not release a specific figure.

The paper reported that most of the agents were discovered around the Muthanna State Establishment northwest of Baghdad, which had been a center of chemical weapons production in the 1980s. The complex has been held by Islamic State militants since June. The Iraqi government told the United Nations that approximately 2,500 chemical rockets remained on the grounds of the facility when it had fallen to the militants.

Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

Things that make you go hmmmmmmm...

Others told the Times that the U.S. may have hidden the findings because five of the six incidents in which coalition forces were wounded by chemical weapons involved munitions designed by the U.S.

That should have been no cause for worry though, since it was a well known fact that the US backed Iraq in the Iraq/Iran war and supplied them weapons.

This almost sounds like they are defending Obama and the fact that ISIS has US weapons and are using them to establish their caliphate.

Not everyone is defending owebuma.
Some have even openly admitted they made a mistake voting for him...

Maybe they will start admitting they were wrong to politicize the war with claims of "No WMD's".
