  • Over in Great Britain, Tony Blair is taking a lot of heat because those weapons were the primary reason for our unpopular invasion. Over here in "love it or leave it" America, you don't hear a lot about it. Colin Powell cites plagiarized intelligence reports (which Britain later admitted) and forged documents (that no one claims to know the origin of) and yet no seems to care.

    So we're going after Saddam for the weapons but we couldn't find them. Eh, maybe we were going after him for his role in 9/11.

    • Careful; I seem to remember believing that the threat of force is a credible deterrant and I'm rather displeased by the feeble apologetics of a shifting justification. If there's no serious evidence of a credible threat, the action was unjustified. I think a lot of people are better off, but a lot of people are dead and still more are suffering through a lot of chaos. Someone ought to answer for that.

      Then again, I have serious doubts that an intelligence agency that couldn't even find its pants to have them down around its ankles a couple of years ago has suddenly transformed into a lean, mean, spying machine.
