    So, your argument is basically to insult and put people down, then you demand I grow up?

    I don't think you know anything about the topic.

    We destroyed thousands of shells of chemical weapons. Hans Blix, head of the UN inspection team, said:

    "The discovery of a number of ... chemical rocket warheads in a bunker at a storage depot 170 km southwest of Baghdad was much publicized. This was a relatively new bunker, and therefore the rockets must have been moved there in the past few years, at a time when Iraq should not have had such munitions.... They could also be the tip of a submerged iceberg. The discovery … points to the issue of several thousands of chemical rockets that are unaccounted for"

    You saying "a few shells" is both wrong, and irrelevant.

    It's kind of like saying "Yes officer, I don't have a drivers license, but sir, this is a small Chevy Metro. It's just a small car, I'm illegally driving".

    Saddam agreed to disarm. That means he should have zero shells. Moreover, he was supposed to show evidence of the destruction of the other shells, to prove he disarmed.

    If Saddam had done this, nothing would have happened, and we wouldn't be talking about it now.

    Moreover, you are wrong. The intelligence agencies of Britain, Germany, Russia, China, Israel, and France all agreed with the assessment that Saddam was expanding his WMD programs.

    Oh, I grasp the paranoia the military industrial complex projected in order to maintain its ascendency. Who could not?

    However, were even they so ridiculous as to posit waves of Russian landing craft motoring up the Hudson? I guess I shouldn't put it past them.

    If the US had abided by the UN Charter and UNSC resolutions we wouldn't be talking about it now, instead we discuss the crime against peace which Fuckwit43's illegal invasion of Iraq constitutes.

    Did you know that russia would speed thousands of tanks, hundreds of thousands of troops to the border of East Gr on a regular basis?
    Did you know they helped the NK fight the war?
    Did you know they helped the VC?
    Did you know their bombers entered our airspace?
    Did you know that their subs entered our waters off the coast?

    Did you know that since these are true facts that calling it paranoia means you are truly ignorant of what went on and only believe what the leftist media tells you w/o question or thought?

    The US did. The original resolution made it clear that disarming, was the requirement to avoid war. Japan and the UK, and several other countries concurred with this.

    You people just make up crap, to support your myths.

    Now you are displaying the intellectual capacity of a 5-year-old. You are as pathetic as your posts prove.

    Yeah right. That's why Kofi Annan, the UN Secretary General, said the invasion was illegal. You guys really should stop slurping your own propaganda, it will make you lose touch with reality.

    Iraq war was illegal and breached UN charter, says Annan

    Iraq war was illegal and breached UN charter, says Annan

    The United Nations secretary general, Kofi Annan, declared explicitly for the first time last night that the US-led war on Iraq was illegal.
