    The Iraq ‘yellow cake find’ was proven years ago as false:

    snopes.com: Yellowcake Uranium Removed from Iraq

    We ‘went into Iraq’ to ensure GWB’s re-election, and no other reason.

    As for Libya becoming an ‘Islamist state,’ there’s no way for the US to control that, nor was there any way to prevent an ‘internal melt-down, ‘ as the Gadhafi government was doomed regardless.

    Consequently this is a pointless and meaningless thread.

    Your snopes link has been proven false, it is an opinion
    The yellow cake had no record of being there prior to 3/2003
    The yellow cake was discovered by US troops after the 2003 US invasion of Iraq at the Tuwaitha Nuclear Research Facility south of Baghdad, and was placed under the control of the International Atomic Energy Agency."
    Evidence of WMDs presence in Iraq. - a knol by Luis T. Puig

    Operation Opera - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Current stockpile None; programme was infiltrated, abandoned, destroyed by Israel and Iran in 1989. Officially program ended in 1990.

    this information that exisited prior to the fact that it did exist prior to 2003 and when it was found was after the invasion as wikipedia notes herein
    no stock piles as noted herein

    Please provide accurate information thats up to dats on these matters
    it is critical people do there DD prior to this election in stead of the way it was done in 08

    Are you fucking serious? Where do you people come from. The unpopularity of Iraq War it extremely hard for Bush to get reelected. I think the Iraq War was a kneejerk reaction from a BAD President, to which the premises for war was built on faulty intelligence!

    faulty intel?

    really
    al-Qaeda in Iraq - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Defense.gov News Article: Munitions Found in Iraq Meet WMD Criteria, Official Says

    The Uranium Joe Wilson Didn't Mention
    By April 2003, when the U.S. invaded Iraq, Saddam Hussein had stockpiled 500 tons of yellowcake uranium at his al Tuwaitha nuclear weapons development plant south of Baghdad.
    The Uranium Joe Wilson Didn't Mention

    Perfect? no
    faulty? some, but in general accurate
    Saddam ha lied
    he had WMDs
    he had not adhered to UN resolutions and GWB had met all items that congress had put forth to make the invasion legal
    There ARE 2 sides to this story

    Libya will be the Obama Administration's biggest blunder? So far it looks like the perfect blue print for limited intervention. We'll see who arises from the ashes, but from a military perspective, it's been a success.

    I can understand why Republicans think Libya was a debacle. He managed to remove a terrible terrorist dictator without a single American casualty. That's not how it's supposed to happen.

    First, you send Americans there with old and rusty equipment.

    Then you send in your friends to make billions.

    Then you bring back dead Americans in "secret".

    Then you let Moammar go scott free.

    Then you hide the cost of the war.

    Then you tell America how Democrats don't understand how to wage a proper war.

    And there you have it. Finally, China ends up with the oil and Libya is now close friends with Iran.

    How Republicans wage war.

    to start with the dems voted in a majority to attack

    The companies the served us in Iraq have served us 4 ever. there 3-5% profits are little in compared to the service there employees provided

    Americans were brought back to a plaace that is meant for them, not you

    Mommar? I have no idea what he had to do with Sadddams lies

    The cost of the war was less than the failed stimulus as of last year, the only people trying to hide that is Obama

    The war in Iraq was a huge success, I wish it never would have happened, as well as 9-11. Saddam had years to do the right thing
    by the way
    get a grip. Being against the war is your right. Making up reasons that are not true to justify it is not
