    1) US senate gives Bush the green light, October 2002
    Senate approves Iraq war resolution - CNN

    2) Blix gives report
    This report of February 14 and the protests of February 16 appear to have created reluctance in some of the members of the Security Council over the proposed war on Iraq. A second resolution was being drafted with the intention that it would find Iraq in "material breach" and the "serious consequences" of Resolution 1441 should be implemented.

    Blix expressed skepticism over Iraq's claims to have destroyed its stockpiles of anthrax and VX nerve agent in Time magazine[citation needed]. Blix said he found it "a bit odd" that Iraq, with "one of the best-organized regimes in the Arab world," would claim to have no records of the destruction of these illegal substances. "I don't see that they have acquired any credibility," Blix said[citation needed]. "There has to be solid evidence of everything, and if there is not evidence, or you can't find it, I simply say, 'Sorry, I don't find any evidence,' and I cannot guarantee or recommend any confidence."[citation needed]

    United Nations Security Council and the Iraq War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Blix earler states
    UN inspection reports provided evidence to the Security Council that Iraq had failed to account for 6,500 chemical bombs, thousand of tons of known chemical agents, empty chemical warheads (including an empty Sakr-18 chemical warhead) discovered subsequent to Iraq's declaration, and stocks of thiodiglycol (a precursor of mustard gas).

    So is Blix a genius or a liar?

    Why did Bush ignore his advice to hold off the invasion so that he could prove there were no WMDs?

    The decision to invade Iraq was the biggest strategic blunder of our generation

    Followed by the blunder of occupation

    Thats your opinion
    Iraq was a part of un doing the world that had got out of control. Saddam was given years to do the right thing
    Your opinion I respect, but it does not change the information that was used to decide to invade after 18 months after 9-11

    Diverting the war on terror to invade Iraq was a strategic blunder that cost 4000 Americans their lives and set back the war on terror

    Bush admitted there were no WMD's in a December 2005 press conference.

    Or course there wasn't, we gave them 3 months to move them to Syria before we invaded. But we did however manage to find yellow cake uranium over there, which is used to make WMD's. But you didn't see them speak much of it now did you? Because it was politically convenient for them to have you think that we invaded for no reason at all and Bush lied and blah blah blah.
