Actually it ended it all rather succinctly.
No more sanctions, no more books, no more Hans Blix dirty looks.

It ended inspections, sanctions, voided all complaints against Saddam (re:disarmament). All in one fell swoop. Go Army!



War did disarm Iraq.



How was it going to happen otherwise?
Was Hussein going to answer every single question?


Doesn't matter now. The war was based on a lie!

Nope. sanctions should be changed to serve specific purposes. Sanctions restricting military buildup would never have been lifted.

Only if you ignore not only the fact that it has not yet ended, but also the major global changes that have worked to make the US position a very nasty one.

There is a WHOLE lot more to the effects of this war than the removal of Saddam. In fact, that is actually one of the minor ones. People 100 years from now aren't going to care about Saddam's removal, they are going to care about the massive geo-political changes resulting from this war that will still be affecting them.

Ah, here's where you have proven that it was not necessary by citing the Tabun. Iraq wasn't hiding Tabun. It would be worthless at this point, so if Iraq could account for it they would have. You have only demonstrated how discrepancies can't be interpreted solely as lack of cooperation.

It is very likely that this issue would have been resolved through peaceful means. The only thing that would have prevented that was an Iraq of the kind dreamed up by the Bush admin, which was not the reality of the situation.

Then the UN was lying too. They said Iraq had not disarmed---if you call GWB a liar (not just a hard sell---but a liar) then you make the UN culpable, for, as it has been put forward here, letting the US strongarm it into starving babies to death--for lies!

This will inevitably be followed by a list of the faulty/bad/nafarious intel that GWB "knowingly lied about." But in the end Iraq was dirty enough to have the whole world's hand up it's ass.

You guys wont touch that with a ten-foot pole.

Oh, and don't forget John Kerry he's in on it too. And Koffi, he's dirty---and in cahoots with Elmo and Miss Piggy. The only question left is "What did Fozzy know and when did he know it?"

Nope. Bush said Iraq was a 'urgent' and 'imminent threat.' That's why we went to war. And that's why he is a liar.

So did John Kerry---and Clinton--were they lying too? How far does the conspiracy go? The UN said Iraq had not disarmed---which of the "undisarmed" weapons couldn't be used by a terrorist? Or an intelligence apparatus?

I read something by Bill Gertz(?) about Silkworm missiles launched off of containerized freight ships. Could you stick bioagents in a Silkworm warhead---who knows?


Urgent threat is part of the sell---it's not outside the realm of the possible.


And I wouldn't put anything past Miss Piggy.

The reality situation is that Iraq's disarmament was a bitchpickle in the UN-SC for 10 goddam years before Dubya even took office.

Since nothing has changed on the weapons front, apparently to you the only thing Iraq was armed with was Saddam. The UN was talking about weapons. If saddam didn't have these weapons then he wasn't armed. As such, your defintion is not the one discussed by UNMOVIC, so you can stop citing them.

One more thing--how many dirty bombs could be made from the material at Iraq's nuke site?

IIRC the al Queda link was firmly established after the first month of fighting. Right?

If the later is true that should scare the hell out of all of us. He had no qualms about supporting suicide bombers.

But then maybe we should just wait for al Queda to make the first move again.

Well the government the sanctions/resolutions were against no longer exists. Iraq has no representative in the UN. So yeah, that part is over.

The whole disarmament thing was 100% contingent on Saddam, to the UN and most especially the US.

There's no excuses to look for---the UN had him as not disarmed, at the same time he was diddling the Israelies by supporting terrorism, and was "involved" with al Queda. Did Atta meet with the Iraqi ambassador to Turkey? Yes? No?

We went to war regardless of the UN. The decision was made long before. The US went so far as to say we would invade even if saddam left the country.

We went to war because saddam was portrayed as a threat. An unavoidable threat would have been the only valid justification for an invasion and occupation of Iraq.

While the UN said Iraq was not 'disarmed,' nothing coming out of the UN demonstrated or even claimed to demonstrate any threat to the US.

Quote:
Did Atta meet with the Iraqi ambassador to Turkey? Yes? No?

no, and I've never heard anyone claim that he did.

If you are refering to the alleged meeting with Ahmed Khalil Ibrahim Samir al-Ahani, it was fabricated. see below

that it is simply not true

about atta:
Quote:
(1) The allegation proved to be based on the statements of a single informant. [New York Times 10/21/02]

(2) According to official records, Mohammed Atta was in Virginia Beach at the time. [Los Angeles Times 8/2/02; New York Times 10/21/02]

(3) Reports appearing in Newsweek, New York Times, and UPI reported that FBI and CIA officials had officially concluded that no such meeting ever occurred based on reports from Czech intelligence which had quietly acknowledged that they may have been mistaken about the whole thing. [Newsweek 4/28/02] One senior U.S. law enforcement official told Newsweek, We looked at this real hard because, obviously, if it were true, it would be huge. But nothing has matched up. [Newsweek 4/28/02] In October the New York Times reported that the Czech president, Vaclav Havel, discreetly called Washington sometime in 2002 to tell senior Bush administration officials that an initial report from the Czech domestic intelligence agency that Mr. Atta had met with an Iraqi intelligence officer, Ahmad Khalil Ibrahim Samir al-Ani, in Prague in April 2001 could not be substantiated. [New York Times 10/21/02; New York Times 10/21/02b] UPI quoted a a high-ranking source close to Czech intelligence who explained, Quite simply, we think the source for this story may have invented the meeting that he reported. We can find no corroborative evidence for the meeting and the source has real credibility problems. [UPI 10/21/02]

(4) President Bush himself admitted there was no such evidence. During a January 31, 2003 joint press conference with British Prime Minister Blair at the White House, the two leaders were asked by a reporter, One question for you both. Do you believe that there is a link between Saddam Hussein, a direct link, and the men who attacked on September the 11th? Bush answered succinctly, I can't make that claim. [U.S. President, 1/31/2003]

(5) On September 26, 2002, Ari Fleischer confirmed that there was no evidence that Iraq had been involved in the 9/11 attacks. [White House, 9/26/03 at the very bottom]

I'm not real certain the evidence connecting SH to al Queda, found after the invasion, has been poo-pooed as well. I don't think so.

My ideas about Iraq's cooperation come from UNMOVIC most recently and UNSCOM's history. I am just as equipped as anyone who is not Hans Blix or otherwise working directly on it.

Read his 3/7/03 report to the SC.
"Mr. President, Iraq, with a highly developed administrative system, should be able to provide more documentary evidence about its proscribed weapons programs. Only a few new such documents have come to light so far and been handed over since we began inspections. It was a disappointment that Iraq's declaration of the 7th of December did not bring new documentary evidence."

What part of the following do you not understand?
Quote:
posted by giant
---------------------------
"documentary evidence suggests that Tabun was produced using process technology and quality control methodologies that would result in the agent being degraded to a very low quality through the action of a resulting by-product.

One bottleneck for Tabun production is the availability of precursors. Iraq may have retained up to 191 tonnes of NaCN and up to 140 tonnes of DMA.HCl, but there is no evidence that any POCl3 remains unaccounted for....

Another bottleneck for Tabun production would be the limited availability of some key equipment needed for processing and storage of corrosive intermediates.

Iraqs assertion that it decided in 1986 to stop production of Tabun and concentrate on the production of Sarin is plausible and appears to be supported by UNSCOMs findings."
----------------------------

from page 68 of the document you so frequently erroneously cite: http://www.un.org/Depts/unmovic/doc...200
3.pdf

Iraq was never able to make Tabun that was viable enough to make is desireable today. While Iraq has some unaccounted for precurssors, this is not the case with all precurssors needed for Tabun, so Iraq can't make it.

All evidence points to a program to develop Tabun being stopped, which would be the best course of action in Iraq's point of view.

This is far from evidence of a threat, and is not treated as such in the document. It is the tying up of loose ends on an obviously discontinued program.

Iraq says, "We have no WMD, but we can't prove the ones we had were destroyed. There's no documentation."
UN says, "You're not complying."
Bush says, "If you don't comply we'll kick your ass."
UN says, "Settle down, George, no one was talking about war."
Bush asks the UN, "Can I go to war against them?"
UN says, "No. We should continue inspections."
Bush ignores the UN and says to Iraq "Prove you destroyed the weapons within a month or we'll blow you up."
Iraq says, "We don't have any WMD but we can't prove they were destroyed."
UN says, "Keep your gun in your pants, George."
People (not governments) around the world unequivocably say "No war."

3: take away the weapons from; render harmless [syn: {unarm}]

If Saddam has zero weapons, then he has no offensive capability.
So assuming all weapons were destroyed before the war, how the hell did we "remove" Saddam's "offensive capability"?

If there were no weapons, how did we take them away?

Make less hostile? No, unless he's dead, we've made him more hostile than ever.

groverat,

Your posts are starting to not make much sense. The thing is you don't really have to make this complex. It's really very simple. Bush said there was WOMD and a threat. Now it's apparent there was no such thing shortly before the attack to provoke the attack. Give it up groverat. Focusing on other little points that don't have a direct conection to the original idea that Bush lied and the american people were duped won't change things.

What a freaking liar this man is. George W. Bush makes Bill Clinton look like the epitome of honesty.

It sounds like you're asking him (everyone?) to let you post what you want without criticism, especially when they disagree.

That was pathetic. I can always tell when you've run out of ideas. Three words groverat : Give it up!

They all lead to the wrong conclusion.
