Maybe someone should tell the Bush administration that Syria has WMD since he got all of them from Iraq.
That has to be it because Bush would never get anything wrong. Except he now has it wrong about Syria not having WMD because he wouldn't have been wrong about Iraq and WMD.
You guys are so predictable at this point. Anything to pretend you to defend your support of a failed policy.
Maybe space aliens took the WMD. That sounds reasonable too.
Suppose that a professional murderer
accepted a contract to kill u with his ax.
If u find out about it,
and pre-emptively have him incapacitated,
it matters NOT that u did not find his ax,
as long as HE is out of action.
You have a copy of that contract?
You do realize it would be against the law for you to do that to another person without a direct provable threat. For you to attack and incapacitate another without evidence of his being a real and immediate threat would make you guilty of assault. It matters not how much you wanted to believe he was a threat. You would have to provide evidence of that threat. Of course you could take the insanity defense, which might be appropriate in the case you layed out.
We are not in a court of law.
In order for the war to be lawful,
only the consent of Congress is necessary.
( Arguably, such a war wud be lawful even WITHOUT
altho it wud not
, without Congressional funding.
Note that most of America 's wars were fought
without Congressional declarations of war,
and that there in nothing in the Constitution
to prohibit a President from waging war
without a declaration of war. )
When a man is elected President,
it is his responsibility to keep America safe from alien enemies.
W well knew that Saddam is a homicidal maniac
( since the age of 10 ) with a vindictive nature
and a grudge against us ( for Kuwait )
and dangerous hobbies with vast oil wealth to support
his adventures, to say nothing of his living next door
to a lot of half straving Russian nuclear scientists
n half starved Russian solidiers.
W has been a VERY GOOD PRESIDENT
in keeping America safe from Saddam pulling a nuclear 9/11 on us
For that he has my deep gratitude
and deserves every American 's love.
we won the war
as soon as we arrested Saddam.
If W feels like it ( after trial n conviction )
we can put Saddam in the same cell
as Manuel Noriega.
We have no further reason to linger there
Let 's get out.
