WMD, Iraq war, Left wing lies, Truth about Saddam Hussein and WMD

The end justifies the means for the far left in this country. The same far left that has taken over the Democrat Party. This means they will lie at any opportunity. Obama is the poster child for left wing lies.

One of the big lies perpetrated by the left is that there were no WMD in Iraq even though most well informed people know that he used them on his own people. Even so called educated people around me have short memories or have been brainwashed by the mainstream media.

Consider the following quotes leading up to the Iraq war.

“Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons,”

“Earlier today I ordered America’s armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces,”

“Their mission is to attack Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors,”

“Along with Prime Minister (Tony) Blair of Great Britain, I made it equally clear that if Saddam failed to cooperate fully we would be prepared to act without delay, diplomacy or warning,”
“In halting our airstrikes in November, I gave Saddam a chance — not a license. If we turn our backs on his defiance, the credibility of U.S. power as a check against Saddam will be destroyed,”

“If Saddam can cripple the weapons inspections system and get away with it, he would conclude the international community, led by the United States, has simply lost its will,”

“He would surmise that he has free rein to rebuild his arsenal of destruction.”

“The best way to end that threat once and for all is with a new Iraqi government — a government ready to live in peace with its neighbors, a government that respects the rights of its people,”

“Saddam Hussein and the other enemies of peace may have thought that the serious debate currently before the House of Representatives would distract Americans or weaken our resolve to face him down,”

“But once more, the United States has proven that although we are never eager to use force, when we must act in America’s vital interests, we will do so.”

President Bush remarks?

No, all were made by President Clinton.

And these were just a few of the strident remarks that Clinton made.

From Wired October 23, 2010.

“By late 2003, even the Bush White House’s staunchest defenders were starting to give up on the idea that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
But WikiLeaks’ newly-released Iraq war documents reveal that for years afterward, U.S. troops continued to find chemical weapons labs, encounter insurgent specialists in toxins and uncover weapons of mass destruction.”

“Meanwhile, the second battle of Fallujah was raging in Anbar province. In the southeastern corner of the city, American forces came across a “house with a chemical lab … substances found are similar to ones (in lesser quantities located a previous chemical lab.” The following day, there’s a call in another part of the city for explosive experts to dispose of a “chemical cache.”

Nearly three years later, American troops were still finding WMD in the region. An armored Buffalo vehicle unearthed a cache of artillery shells “that was covered by sacks and leaves under an Iraqi Community Watch checkpoint. “The 155mm rounds are filled with an unknown liquid, and several of which are leaking a black tar-like substance.” Initial tests were inconclusive. But later, “the rounds tested positive for mustard.””

I would like to add something else for the simple minded or brainwashed out there. Just because something is not found, is not proof that it doesn’t exist.

Iraq War justification, Iraq War reasons, can we justify, George W Bush or Bill Clinton, media lies, political lies, truth

On February 23, 2008 I posted the following:

https://citizenwells.wordpress.com/2008/02/23/iraq-war-justification-iraq-war-reasons-can-we-justify-hillary-clinton-john-mccain-barrack-obama/

This post was a list of 10 quotes regarding Saddam Hussein. I did not provide the source of the quotes at that time. Many people, for whatever reason, believe only George W Bush took the posture indicated in the quotes, when in reality, the entire Clinton administration believed that Saddam Hussein had WMD, had used them on his own people, posed a real threat and that the US was ready to stop him. All of the quotes from the original post came from the Clinton Administration. Below are the original quotes, followed by the source and the dates. Also, below, I have supplied the links to the CNN articles that contain the quotes. Interesting, isn’t it? Think of all the lies that have been told about George W Bush and the acceptance of revisionist history.

” We must stop Saddam from ever again jeopardizing the
stability and security of his neighbors with weapons of mass
destruction.”  “The chemical weapons Saddam has used and the biological weapons we know he has tested pay no attention to borders and nationalities.”   Madeleine Albright, February 1, 1998

2.  “If diplomacy runs out, we have reserved the right to use
force and if we do so it will be substantial.”   Madeleine Albright, February 1, 1998

3.  “No one has done what Saddam Hussein has done, or is thinking of doing.  He is producing weapons of mass destruction, and he is qualitatively and quantitatively different from other dictators.”   Madeleine Albright, February 18, 1998

4.  “What we are doing is so that you all can sleep at night.  I am very proud of what we are doing.  We are the greatest nation in the world and what we are doing is being the indispensable nation, willing to make the world safe for our children and grandchildren, and for nations who follow the rules.”    Madeleine Albright, February 18, 1998

5.  “Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons.”   Bill Clinton, December 16, 1998

6.  “If Saddam can cripple the weapons inspections sytem and get away with it, he would conclude the international community, led by the United States, has simply lost its will.  He would surmise that he has free rein to rebuild his arsenal of destruction.”   Bill Clinton, December 16, 1998

7.  “Earlier today I ordered America’s armed forces to strike
military and security targets in Iraq.  They are joined by British forces.  Their mission is to attack Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.  While other countires also had weapons of mass desctuction, Hussein is in a different category because he has used such weapons
against his own people and against his neighbors.   Bill Clinton, December 16, 1998

8.  “Along with Prime minister (Tony)Blair of Great Britain, I made it equally clear that if Saddam failed to cooperate fully we would be prepared to act without delay, diplomacy or warning.”   Bill Clinton, December 16, 1998

9.  “The best way to end that threat once and for all is with a new Iraqi goverment — a government ready to live in peace with its neighbors, a government that respects the rights of its people.”   Bill Clinton, December 16, 1998

10.  “But once more, the United States has proven that although we are never eager to use force, when we must act in America’s vital interests, we will do so.”   Bill Clinton, December 16, 1998

Liberal lies, media lies, Iraq war reasons, students misled, George W Bush, Clinton administration

I just received 2 comments from what appears to be a sincere college student. I am assuming this student wants to hear the truth. I will present the truth here. The 2 comments are below, just as submitted:

Comment on #4: this argument is thought provoking, however, I disagree with the assumption that the U.S is the world police. The U.S is not the world police. The UN was created specifically to take the position of being the world police, and to form stability among nations. The U.S needs to let the UN do its job.

Comment on #3 : I think this argument is right about Saddam Hussein being a bad man , but I respectfully disagree with the assumption that Saddam Hussein’s evilness was the only reason the U.S took it upon itself to invade Iraq. There is also an assumption that the Iraq war had nothing to do with oil, when it is painfully obvious that it did have a lot to do with oil and the power to dominate. The Bush Administration drove us to believe that the war effort was promoting humanitarianism and was to remove threats, “WMD”, but the truth is Iraq pose no threat to the U.S because there was no WMD, and the attack was obviously for personal reasons hold by the Bush Administration. The U.S is not a world police. It is not our job to attack every country that has bad leadership, if that’s the case we need to be attacking our self for our bad leadership.

First of all, all of the quotes of my original post were made by the Clinton Administration and not President George W Bush. I will respond with another post and provide the source and date of each quote.

Regarding the United Nations and the US playing the role of police: Just as in World War II, the US has had to come to the rescue of the world. The United Nations failed to perform it’s duty to deal with Saddam Hussein. Why did this occur? Fundamentally because France, Germany and Russia were “in bed” with him financially. As you now know, the Clinton Administration considered Saddam Hussein a serious threat and were prepared to take action against him.

Here is my answer to the second comment. Once again, you responded to comment #3 of my post which also was a Clinton Administration quote. Saddam Hussein used WMD on multiple occasions against Iran and his own people. There is absolutely no proof that he did not have them when we invaded or that he was not producing them. Saddam Hussein was a very evil man who was capable of doing anything that he was not stopped from doing. He murdred hundreds of his own people, invaded Kuwait, destroyed the habitat of people in the southern part of Iraq and raped and tortured many others.

I would like to know where you got your informatiom. Was it the media, your teachers, your friends? I hope that you will follow up on this and seek the facts and the truth. Also, read 1984 by George Orwell or reread it. Pay particular attention to doublespeak. If you have any questions or comments, please respond.

Sincerely,

Citizen Wells

Iraq War justification, Iraq War reasons, can we justify, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Barack Obama
