Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

The WMD's Debate & Reprehensible Dems

The Democrats, with John Kerry as their titular head, have been bashing Bush for going to war in Iraq. They are frauds, they are opportunists, they are hypocrites of the highest order & they are undermining our efforts in Iraq for political gain. Now they all parrot the line that Iraq is a "mess", which it is not. They see no good happening in Iraq, they can say no good. They have no shame. They are reprehensible hacks & borderline traitors. Kerry is the most reprehensible of the pack - he will say anything to get elected & to hell with the country. He will tear it down to build himself up, as he did 30 years ago.

What follows is a sample of the Dems' previous positions on Saddam & WMD's, before they shamelessly decided to use the war as a political football. They seemed to agree that Saddam was a serious threat, that is until election time rolled around.

Back in February of 2002, John Edwards said on CNN's "Late Edition":
“I think Iraq is the most serious and imminent threat to our country. And I think they – as a result, we have to, as we go forward and as we develop policies about how we’re going to deal with each of these countries and what action, if any, we’re going to take with respect to them, I think each of them have to be dealt with on their own merits. And they do, in my judgment, present different threats. And I think Iraq and Saddam Hussein present the most serious and most imminent threat.”

"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line." (Clinton 2-4-98)

"Iraq is a long way from [the USA], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face." (Madeline Albright 2-17-98)

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
(Sandy Berger-National Security Advisor 2-18-98)

"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." (letter to Clinton from Sen. Kerry, Daschle & others. 10-9-98)

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process." (Rep. Nancy Pelosi 12-18-98)

"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has invigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In adition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies." (letter to Bush from Sen. Graham & others 12-5-01)

"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country. Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."(Al Gore 9-23-02)

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction." (Sen. Ted Kennedy 9-27--02)

"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..." (Sen. Byrd 10-3-02)

"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force if necessary to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security." (John Kerrry 10-9-02)

"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction." (Sen. Rockafeller 10-10-02)

"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do." (Sen. Waxman 10-10-02)

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members .. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons." (Hillary Clinton 10-10-02)

"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction." (Sen. Graham 12-8-02)

"Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..." (John Kerry 1-23-03)

Thus spake the hypocrites.

Hmmm. Sounds like your saying Bush was either getting insufficient, misleading or incorrect information. Shame on you George Bush for not changing our intelligence operations as recommended by the 9-11 Commission.
