So Bush pretty much lied to the world. Where is the 'irrifutable evidence' of these weapons? How was Saddam a threat to freedom?
And most importantly, why were the Iraqu people more worthy of being liberated than any other country.
Now that Bush has found no WMDs, he has completely gone in the other direction and only talks about liberation and such.
But is the US doing anything to free the millions of other people who are in the same situation that the Iraqis were in? No, unless they have billions of dollars worth of oil in their country too, it seems they are shit-out-of-luck.

yes, no weapons of mass destructio have been found. but saddam did need to be throwed out, though not by a war. What was it abut that prisonner's cemetery found baghdad with i dunno how many thousands of dead executed corpses? anyways im tired of talking about the war
I was thinking... man my name is ugly! Canadian Ski God? come on! i suck at skiing!
ok, first off, saddam was bad to his people. would you have like electrodes on ur nads for saying you dont like him? secondly, its not about the oil. the US sits on one of, if not the biggest oil reserve in the world alaska. weapons of mass destruction, he did turn in a bomb that has chemical agents inside. they have found numerous chemical plants in those trucks or whatever. also, hans blix was such a dumbass, he gave them all the warning in the world, and when he got to iraq, he moved fucking amazingly slow, not to mention iraqi officials knew where he was going to go. lastly, the point of the inspections were not to find weapons of mass destructions, but to find proof that he destroyed them. we know he had them, so we need him to destroy them.
irrifutable isn't a word. We may not have found the weapons of mass destruction but we found proof they had or have them. We found many weapons like scuds that they claimed not to have. We also freed the iraqi people. If Saddam was so good to them why did they come onto the streets and cheer for American soldiers?
ok, my bad, your probobly right, but the one thing that pissed me off the most was the way the iraqis, burnt and looted that big historical library/museum type thing, i think thats much worse then however many lives were lost in this war.
I'm not sayin saddam was a good guy, he gassed the kurds, etc, but i'm sayin as dictatorships go, he did a lot of good for his country. Iraq, is the most pleasant place to live, in all of the middle east, says thousands of statistics. Now, because of the americans, baghdad lies in ruin, ppl are STILL without power, schools, power stations, museums, etc were raided, because the US were to busy defending the oil wells. Its not about the oil? 65% of the entire coalition is defending 990 oil wells, you moron! So far, iraq is in a lot worse condition then it has been when saddam was dictator.

you know why we guarded them? because they are iraqs WHOLE ECONOMY, and saddam would have been glad to bomb them, kill people, and take iraq with him. remember, we arent taking over. now we are trying to stabilize iraq so that we can give it back to its peolple. dont give me any, 'no theyre not!' bull, its a long-term plan. we cant fix a war-ravenged country in a month. yes, we are in charge now, but what do you expect? it will be good for iraq to have us be in charge for a while.look at japan and germany, we kicked their asses, rebuilded their country, and now they are HUGE world powers.
oh, happy birthday to me, in alomost 13!
punksta, how can you say that a museum is more valuable then a human life? nothing is more valuable then life, especially not tangible objects, and buildings.

oh hey steeb, i've just been bustin out large. its kinda hard not to with a skateboard as big as mine
An individual life has no meening to the world if it is not remembered, so if we go and destroy huge records of history we are killing everything that those historical ppl did, and we just plain lose a lot of knowledge i dont know, to me id rather lose however many lives were lost (does anybody know how many that is) then lose what thousands of ppl have worked to achieve.
Well we still remember the general populace if not individually then as the general populace, but if we dont know what the general populace was like, if we dont have records of how they lived and what conditions they lived under then that would be bad, but we do remember at least the grand majority of earthly ppl in a general sense (hence we don't just remember the important ppl).
No, but if the US is now saying that the ONLY reason they invaded Iraq is to liberate, then what about the dozens of other countries with Dictators? They don't also deserve to be liberated and to experience freedom?

killy802, bush will be the new dictator, if he gets re-elected, say goodbye to democracy
Living people have a strong interest of promoting the idea that somehow life is sacred, you dont see abbot and costello runnin around talkin about this shit do ya? we're not hearin a whole lot from mussilini on the subject, Whats the latest from JFK??? NOT A GODDAMN THING, cuz JFK mussilini, and abbot and costello are fuckin dead.....they're fuckin dead! and dead people give less than a shit about the sanctity of life, only living people care about it, so the whole thing developes out of a bias point of view. -George Carlin
It means we know Saddam existed, but we haven't found him. Now since we haven't found him does that mean he doesn't exist? Of course not. I'm comparing that to the existence of weapons. The failure to find weapons isn't an explanation for them not existing. In my opinion neither side has been able to prove that weapons exist or don't exist.
The evidence Powell presented was satellite images pointing out certain facilities and some type of chemical readings from those areas. They showed video tape of circumstances of a lot of stuff being removed from buildings weapon inspectors were to be arriving at shortly. They also had some intercepted phone calls. That was the evidence they presented.
The US chose to liberate Iraq over other countries because it posed the largest threat to the US. Of course oil had something to do with it but it wasnt the only thing. They arent gonna give civilians all the details. That would be stupid of them. Theres still classified documents from WWII.
