Jeff that is absolute garbage about Iraq, Saddam openly vowed to send 25,000 dollar checks to family's of suicide bombers that bombed targets in Israel and any western targets, also several prominent leaders in Al queda had homes in Baghdad. The troops over there ( I was there in 2005) some of them found rockets with traces of VX and Sarin Gas, Polish troops found other chemical weapons, not huge stock piles as we gave him months to move and destroy them. There was massive evidence of dumping in to the Tigress and Euphrates rivers of chemicals used to build weapons. He was shooting at our planes over the no fly zone every day for years and years, he was raping and torturing and he violated the Cease fire agreement many times over and that by its self was more then enough reason for us to go in there kick his ass and deal with the problem. Lets be honest Iraq was a war that was going to be fought it was just a matter of when.

Ironic that you call yourself "gipper", you might want to review Reagan's policy on Iraq, which I considered brilliant. He supported them just enough to force a stalemate with Iran, our real enemy in the Middle East.Too bad the CIA doesn't agree with you about your claims. They did find evidence of some weapons, but what few where left where pre-gulf war 1Listen, no doubt Saddam was a rotten SOB, but we can't be the world's nursemaid. Further, presidents that actually had real foreign policy experience, notably Reagan and Daddy Bush, found him a useful SOB. I agree.
