    One of Saddams top generals is right now, 5:10 Pm PST, is being interviewed on the radio and he is adamantly stating that they sent their WMD's to syria before the liberation of Iraq.

    Do you honestly think that anti-war, Bush-hating libs are going to care? They think they've "won" that arguement, and it is their main "justification" that the war was wrong. They will never accept this as the truth.

    since "outing" Syria to us would bring major repercussions for an already troubled regime.

    Just as with the supposed "intelligence" from the Iraqi Shi'ite expatriates before the war, we should be very careful to assess the possible motives of people providing us information.

    The only way this would make sense is if the general is a pro-U.S. former Saddamist, who opposes his fellow Sunnis' insurgency. I don't think there are too many of those, but I'd be happy if there were some.

    And if there are usable WMD's (presumably chemical or biologial?) in Syria, let's pressure that regime until it hands them over. Although it would help justify the invasion if there it were true, it would also condemn the current administration's military strategy, since many people worried that we had inadequate troops on the ground to properly seal the Syrian border.

    I think it's because this is a lose/lose proposition for Bush that the White House has been very muted about any hints that WMDs might have been present but missed.

    Maybe. Maybe a dog with diarrhea shat in an envelope, mailed it to bush, and when they opened it, the feces formed the letters conveying a false message to the administration.

    I am going to fence this one. Meaning I will believe it if and when we find a WMD.

    May as well--It's a completely moot point except to historians and critics.

    to spell CONSerative.

    But I don't believe either "side" really lies or that there are two sides. It's multiple competing values that have sorted themselves out (due to the political necessity of needing a majority of the vote to win an election) into two big camps.

    Republicans are a hodgepodge of the religious right, gun lovers, businesspeople, and libertarians. Democrats are a hodgepodge of the religious left, unionized workers, and secular humanists.

    I'm liberal on many social issues but fiscally conservative. The current batch of "conservative" Republicans is liberal on nation-building in Iraq and on deficit spending, but conservative on the Constitution, except in terms of presidential power, where their thinking is monarchial. If only it were all as simple as right=right, left=wrong.

    Yes I can RWA, If they were moved then they can still be found. Moving somthing does not mean it ceases to exist. Do try to understand that.

    That said if they were moved then I would still be a sight pissed at the government. Many officials were quoted saying "we know where these things are." If we knew where they were then we should have had those locations under constant satelite servailence to make sure that the WMDs were not moved.

    PS love the irony of writing to ask someone if they can read
