This is a serious question. As you know by now, I'm not a loonie liberal. I understand though that the failure to find WMD in Iraq (yet) has hurt our reputaion and it has hurt our ability to launch future preemptive wars against rogue states. This, along with the troubles we face in Iraq today, hurt the Bush Doctrine, even though the Bush Doctrine is right and important for the War on Terror. At the beginning of the war, I was expecting us to find WMD sometime in May or June. I remember like a week in, everyone was saying, "Where are the WMD?" I felt like telling them to STFU, but I realize now, that we weren't just going to find these weapons in actual governmental buildings. They are hidden. We all know Bush didn't lie. Saddam used them. He admitted to using them. He admitted to having them. Clinton thought he had them. Kerry did. The UN did (17 times). France did. Germany did. Russia did. The UK did. Even Syria did. The UNSC and IAEA did. He violated 17 war treaties about them. But where are they? Scenario 1: They Are Hidden in Iraq Iraq's the size of California. Chemical weapons can be contained in something the size of a Coke bottle. It took us months to find Hussein, and the hole he was found in was big enough to contain enough WMDs to kill over 500,000 people. Plus, Iraqi scientists, such as Adnan Sead, has said Saddam hid his WMDs underneath people's lawns and in waterwells. Libya gave up some WMD and they were hidden in a turkey farm... a turkey farm. Not a military base. A turkey farm. This is why these countries are ROGUE states. I think we may stumble across some chemical weapons in a basement somewhere some time in the future. Scenario 2: They Were Moved We've heard the reports about the Bekka Valley in Syria. We've heard about Abu Musab al-Zarqawi trying to get them. We've heard about the trucks going there. I think this is possible. If it is, I say before the election, we raid this camp where these WMDs are, get the WMD and destroy them. I'm not saying go to war with Syria. Just destroy this camp. It'd be better if we could get Syria to admit they hid them for Iraq. Scenario 3: He Destroyed Them I think once Bush came into office, Saddam knew he wouldn't f*ck around like Clinton. Saddam knew Bush would send the UN back in there soon, so Saddam started to destroy the stockpiles, while keeping the WMD programs active. Then 9/11 happened, and Saddam hurried up this process because he knew he was on Bush's hitlist. Any opinions?
