n our time, political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemisms, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness. Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. --George Orwell
The Weapons of Mass Destruction and the Invasion of Iraq one of the greatest acts of deceptions of government that I have seen in my lifetime.
“You can fool some of the people all the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on.” George W Bush
I've said it before and I'll say it again. GW Bush was determined to take out Saddam since Day 1 in office... 9-11 was a God-send. Friends at CDC's Bioterrorism unit told me they were informed in April 2001, to get their bio-tests ready -we're going to Iraq in Feb 2003. They had 22 months to develop tests that could detect bio-agents in < 2 hours. Three people separately corroborated that info.
So yes, Bush had to sell the US citizens a pack of caca, and they bought it hook line and sinker... now the same jerks are whining about our National Debt... well dumb-azzes you could have save $2-3 billion NOT invading Iraq. Geez !! We're fooked !
Well I would not call it a pack of caca - so to speak, not a 100% anyway. Saddam himself did do allot to help sell Bush packs of FUD.
Saddam could not show Bush or give up something (WMDs) he never had - the sad thing is the Bush team knew it and that's why they played it that way. Saddam was snookered. Every item Bush highlighted as a WMD was a joke... first bio-weapons generating trucks with anthrax that had canvas tarps for covers. HTF do you maintain sterility and keep from killing yourself? Then there was the bogus "yellow cake from Africa" BS ! Joe Wilson debunked that ! Then the pilotless drone plane... like it's going to fly 5000+ miles and our air force is totally grounded? They were NOT hard to see through Steve. Too many people wanted any kind of revenge - didn't care who - and let their common sense fly out the window. Same ones that gave the House back to the drunken spenders of 2001-2007!
And now the dunce GW goes on public TV and admits authorizing water boarding! Didn't they tell us at one time they were NOT doing that? LIARS ! He'd lied to us since Day 1 Steve, Saddam couldn't do anything to stop their plans. Bottom Line: Besides being a liar, GW is a war criminal.

I agree David with everything that you have written. That "your with us or against us" patriotism sh!t is still sticking on the walls. In my little burg on Nov 2 they were out in full force, flags a flying. sigh Both Bush and Cheney should be charged for leading America down a path that anyone who cared one wit for those who put them in charge to lead and protect our country should have never gone.

I recently saw a guy, on his adult sized tricycle (his only transportation, apparently) with a huge flag and TP stickers all over. I suppose he must be one of those multi-millionaires who doesn't want his taxes increased.
