Saddam's last chance rebuffed by politics

Reply Mon 10 Sep, 2012 01:42 pm
On this day, 10 years ago, the decision to invade Iraq, still on the table, Saddam challenged Bush to prove he was producing WMD, offered to open up all of his palaces, but it was to late. Troops already mobilized in Quwait and Saudi Arabia, were waiting for Bush to give them the go ahead.

Never mind that dozens of UN inspectors had looked in every nook and crany over the years, the invasion was just something that had to be done, not logical of course, but with a 92 percent approval, the country was all for it. Which says more about the people than about Bush.


What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is WHAT WE DO.
