At last. It's all clear.

Cheney explains it all.
Here's a joke.

Cheney says Saddam's PROGRAMS were enough to justify killing innocents in Iraq.
Of course. They knew all along that that trailer with dangerous chemicals such as Oh, Clorox and Ammonia were just the tip of the iceberg. In fact many household had dangerous cleaning supplies that could be used to harm the United States.
Think about it. We can't have those Iraqi housewives getting the edge on our own hard scrubbin wimmin. NO!!!!!!!
They must be stopped before it's too late!!!!!!!

Good goin George.

Were you dropped on your head as a child?

Bush administration is a joke? What would the alternative have been? Gore (the inventor of the Internet)? What would he have done? Appealed to militant Islam's inner child? Heck, we would have had another major attack already. It's the THREAT of terrorism (mainly from militant Islam) and its periphery that we're fighting against. Hussein had a chance to be a stand-up guy for his people, and he just wouldn't do it. For years. I'm glad that, after 9-11, somebody in Washington actually had the balls to do something about all this nonsense. Attacking Iraq didn't come out of nowhere. We threatened; Hussein could have stopped it.

Why am I even saying this stuff? You're just going to call me names. That's what liberals do. Talk shit and name call.

"Hussein could have stopped it."
Since he complied completely with our requests for unrestricted inspections I'm not entirely sure what else he could have done.

"Attacking Iraq didn't come out of nowhere."
You're right, Rumsfeld wanted it done on 9/11, despite Iraq not having any involvement.

CBS news acquired notes written by one of Rumsfeld's aides which quoted the Defense Secretary at 2:40 p.m. on September 11 saying he wanted the "best info fast. Judge whether good enough hit S.H. [Saddam Hussein] at same time. Not only UBL [Usama bin Laden]." The notes continued, "Go massive. Sweep it all up. Things related and not." [emphasis added] [CBS News 9/4/02]
