Were there W. of M. D. in Iraq, or did Bush lie?

Our troops are never afraid to stand up, and alone!

No matter what happens in D.C., they do what is right all over the world!

Some readers are going to like this and some won't. That is the nature of blogging! Besides our country is so split, down the middle right now, that it can be tough to find any common ground to stand on. I hope that Americans from the left and from the right can find that soon, but that hope has faded.

Why? Look at the history behind the war in Iraq, and the facts about whether or not there were W.of M.D.. Even though there is indisputable proof that Saddam Husein had and was using chemical weapons and had a large supply of yellow cake uranium ( http://www.nbcnews.com/id/25546334/ A MUST READ!) , we are still often told that President George W. Bush lied. Yellow Cake Uranium is used to create weapons of mass destruction. Many of Husein's own chemists and operatives stated that he was going to use this and the warheads that U.N. investigators found....and on us!

A quick poll

Do you believe that there were weapons of mass distruction in Iraq?

See results without voting

Do we get it yet?

We are even told today that thousands died because of his lies about these weapons. It not only comes from the media's left, but even from Michael Savage (conservative radio Icon), and many Ron Paul supporters!

The world recently learned that Syria used gas (chemical weapons) on its own people. Do you remember where those came from? I do. When Hans Blix and his team were scheduled to enter Iraq and investigate this matter, there was plenty of stock footage showing large trucks being loaded with chemical weapons. Those trucks then raced in a convoy to and then across the Syrian border. They were hidden from Blix's team. The reason these were hidden has always been quite clear. Hussein tested this form of chemical weapon on a community of Kurds in his own country! It was believed that he tested this method of genocide in his country first before setting his plan of using these weapons on Israel and America!

Also, Hans instructed the Iraqi Government to dispose of some war heads they found. Iraq agreed, but many of those same war heads were found much later by allied forces.

Even NBC news reported this- "The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein's nuclear program — a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium — reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans.

The removal of 550 metric tons of "yellowcake" — the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment — was a significant step toward closing the books on Saddam's nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions."


I know that the Bush Administration did an awful job conveying this information to the public. He was a P.R. nightmare in so many ways. But, I still ask why didn't the media report the truth and why do many democrats still accuse Bush of lying about this? Is it for political reasons? I can not see any other reason to mislead the public.

In my opinion, missle war heads, yellow cake uranium, and nerve gas/chemical weapons, fall under the W. of M. D. catagory! They also belonged to a ruthless dictator that used them against his own people with out warning. What would he have done to us, and the other nations that he threatened?

Please tell me your opinion!

There is a poll below, and I also ask you to leave a comment for me. I will respond when I can.

If you are liberal or beleived that Bush lied, please don't hesitate to discuss this with me! I will be polite.

Honestly Mike? I don't know what to believe any more. The media made it quite evident Bush was lying and yet, as you have pointed out, there was proof. So, who was right? Who was wrong? All I can say is God help mankind.

Voted up, useful, and interesting.

I remember that, I watch Gen Colin Powell give a power point presentation at the U.N. of video feed from a space satellite showing these huge warheads with Russian writing on their sides rolling across the desert, he said were heading for Syria. Then when John Kerry and John Edwards was running against the Bush admin. He was asked "If he was against the war in Iraq why did he vote for it" And John Kerry said "Because Bush Lied" there were no weapons of mass destruction"

He left out the part "Could be Found" Then everybody and their Grandmother were running saying "Bush Lied" Why did Bush not defend himself ? Why did Colin Powell suddenly change party's ?

Generals don't usually do that. Why did no one call foul?

Bush was a P.R. nightmare, but not a liar. He should have spent as much time as possible setting the record straight!
