    It won't post any content for you. Like I said, the world all thought Saddam had nuclear WMD or was working on it. That's WHY the UN was inspecting them, duh!

    In fact, nobody thought this. After the first Gulf war and the following sanctions Iraq was busy to maintain statehood.

    Bullshit. The inspection were going on on a regular basis. Failing to allow them full access is what set it off. Meanwhile ...Germany was selling arms illegally to Iraq. The oil for food scam helped Saddam rebuild his military, and palaces btw. The UN could have squeezed him out but too many member nations were making plenty of dough. So spare us the royal indignation.

    Iraq´s military was weak in 2003. The war against Iran and the following US intervention left not much space to rebuild the army. Iraqi tanks had Iraqi rounds incapable of penetrating US armor, the airforce and air defense could not stop the US air raids. Probably, the US left Hussein in charge only to come back when "time is due".

    They were shooting at coalition planes in the no fly zone too. They broke their treaty agreement numerous ways so the whole 'no wmd' mantra is obfuscation.

    Congratulations on being a European Australian. We have two other Australian Europeans on the board, and we value the views of Australian Europeans. Vienna, Salzburg and Innsbruck are three of my favorite European cities.

    Cool it fellows. The Iraq war was a fuckup. I see a lot of friendly fire going on. Cease fire!
    Welcome Euro.
    Shit happens with friendly fire around here but not too often, fortunately. These are two no-nonsense guys exchanging fire. Ice and Bleip are both good guys.
