HOW MANY FREAKIN' SMOKING GUNS DO WE NEED? How about this one:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. forces near Baghdad found a weapons cache of around 20 medium-range missiles equipped with potent chemical weapons, the U.S. news station National Public Radio reported on Monday.
Yeah, but you can't trust those warmongering folks at Reuters and NPR. So how about this one:
Mustard gas and cyanide have been found in river water in the Iraqi city of Nasiriya, coalition forces said yesterday. The poisonous substances are believed to have been dumped in the Euphrates either by Iraqi soldiers fleeing from U.S. troops or by local factories that produced weapons of mass destruction.
The WMD stuff is, of course, only one of many reasons for getting rid of Saddam Hussein. But it appears that the critics were wrong about this one, just as they were wrong about all the others.
The real reason for war, anyway, can be seen here.
