Why Bush Couldn't Risk WMD Getting into Hands of Terrorists
If a lie is repeated often enough, it becomes a truth in many people’s eyes. Sadly, that is the case in the reality of what led up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. The “Bush lied, kids died” mantra that liberals spout is absolute nonsense.
President Bush led us to war with Saddam Hussein because of the intelligence he received both at home and from foreign sources. The Left has conveniently “forgotten” that our allies, including the British, the Jordanians, and the Israelis, all stated that Saddam possessed WMD. Why, their favorite ex-darling, Bill Clinton, and his lovely wife Hillary said the same thing, as did many prominent Democratic leaders in Congress.
Saddam Hussein had ample opportunity to move his WMD out of his country, more than likely to Syria, before the anticipated American invasion. Any moron would have been smart to do so, and Saddam was a lot of things, but stupid was not one of them.
It was their prerogative if people wanted to oppose military action against the Iraqi dictator. But, the lies repeated by the Left, with the help of the corrupt media, are beyond the pale.
Bush took the responsibility of protecting Americans seriously, and he could not afford to risk WMD getting into the hands of terrorists, knowing that they would jump at the chance to use them against innocent Americans--not after the tragedy of 9/11.
Too many people have forgotten what occurred on that infamous day.
Read from Newsmax about the plans that al Qaeda has for us Americans and then get it through your thick heads that this was what Bush was trying to prevent from happening. If he had not done so and we had been attacked again after 9/11, imagine the outcry from the Left and their cronies in the mainstream media.
Al-Qaida: We Would Use Pakistani Nukes On America
“DUBAI — If al-Qaida were in a position to do so, it would use Pakistan's nuclear weapons in its fight against the United States, a top leader of the group said in remarks aired on Sunday.
Pakistan has been battling al-Qaida Taliban allies in the Swat Valley since April after their thrust into a district 60 miles northwest of the capital raised fears the nuclear-armed country could slowly slip into militant hands.
‘God willing, the nuclear weapons will not fall into the hands of the Americans and the mujahideen would take them and use them against the Americans,’ Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, the leader of al-Qaida's in Afghanistan, said in an interview with Al Jazeera television.
Abu al-Yazid was responding to a question about U.S. safeguards to seize control over Pakistan's nuclear weapons in case Islamist fighters came close to doing so.
‘We expect that the Pakistani army would be defeated (in Swat) . . . and that would be its end everywhere, God willing.’
Asked about the group's plans, the Egyptian militant leader said: ‘The strategy of the (al-Qaida ) organization in the coming period is the same as in the previous period: to hit the head of the snake, the head of tyranny: the United States."
