Liberals are fond of saying there were no WMDs in
. They think this is the perfect argument for not doing anything militarily based on intelligence. This premise is ludicrous. It ignores the basic facts of Iraq ’s
WMD history. There WERE weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Saddam used all of his WMDs
killing his own people before we got there. In a way, we just lost count.
Saddam killed 3,200 to 5,000 Kurdish civilians in one poison gas attack
alone, on Iraq , on March 16, 1988.
He injured 7,000 to 10,000 more. Intelligence analysts knew this history, even if liberals today forget or ignore it. Bush knew it too when he made the decision to invade. Congress did too when both houses voted to authorize the attack. The One had no congressional vote on his Libyan attacks. Bush had bipartisan authorization for Iraq. Liberals' ignorance never fails to impress this redneck. Halabja, Iraq
