Default I thought there were no chemical weapons found in Iraq?

Many people on this forum and everywhere in the country blamed Bush for the war in Iraq saying he lied about chemical weapons just to drag us into another war. Most of us level headed people knew there were chemical weapons because we're the ones who supplied it to them during a previous war. We knew that they were used in Iraq since then and why would Iraq threaten us with them if they didn't have them? Still, there was no proof and all the left wing folks jumped all over it. Well, here is your proof, it's a bit late but I think it's time to eat crow. The link is for Fox News but since many people think Fox is just a bunch of liars, feel free to use your internet search, it's all over the place.

The claim by the Administration was SH was actively producing CW's: On Sept. 12, 2002, Pres. Bush said,"Right now, Iraq is expanding and improving facilities that were used for the production of biological weapons." He went on to say, "The regime is rebuilding and expanding facilities capable of producing chemical weapons."

The Bush Admin. declared war on the pretense that SH was pursuing new and ongoing programs to manufacture WMD's.

All the CW's found (and subsequently covered up by the Bush Admin.) were manufactured before 1991.

From my position the crow has flown the coupe leaving nothing to eat.

Not so fast. The stance by almost all of the left was "there were no CW found in Iraq". There is no way to sugar coat it or back peddle out of it. There were CW found in Iraq.

Even if true it changes nothing. There were WMD's in Iraq. Lots of them.

Denial is not a river in Egypt.

The people there were being hit by them for many years, by their own government. Tell them they didn't exist.
Lots of time to hide things before the invasion they knew was coming. Lots of places as well.
How ever you feel about things there the fact is the same, they had the weapons.

Some people go their whole life wondering if they made a difference, Marines don't have that problem.~ Ronald Reagan

This recent report is about the junk weapons that were found. The real weapons of mass destruction were toted out of the country. Where?

They are hidden where least expected. The best place to always hide anything is in the wide open. Gosh! I'm amazin!

None of which posed any kind of threat to the US. Hell, SH's regime had been brought to it's knees via the most severe international sanctions ever levied on a country.

I've yet to read anywhere whether any of the weapons recovered were able to be deployed. There were no active chemical weapons facilities uncovered. The invasion was mobilized around the theme of active research and/or production of WMD's. Me thinks a bit of a semantic two-step is going on.

Regardless, the war has created lots of blow-back (ISIS/ISIL is the decendent of al-Qaeda Iraq) and has cost much in blood and treasure for this country.

Correction, Obama pulling out far too early has caused the blow-back with the terrorist groups. Not the war itself. If you recall correctly, the war on terror started BECAUSE of the terror attacks. They were just about beat when Obama received the keys. Now look!

You don't get to have it both ways. You can't whine about expanding our govt's debt and then blame the president for not spending a gazillion bucks sending armed Americans on baby sitting missions everywhere that people want to shoot one another.

Thus far, he's been the best...or at least the luckiest chess player I've seen.

Did anyone notice that after the nuts stopped whacking their desks on Fox about warring with Putin, the Russian prez has quietly sent all the troops on the Ukraine border back to their bases? And when the Foxies were raging from the chandeliers about Obama allowing Assad to cross the red line, once again, quietly Assad conceded to Obama's demands of unilateral disarmament of its chemical weapons and we get the bonus of using the war criminal to help us and that region mop up ISIS. And he doesn't even fuss now when we bomb his country! If it's over before Obama's out of town, I'd bet we'd see that particular Syrian war criminal brought to justice too.
