Telegraph

I will amend my previous statement. Both security services reported that there was significant belief that WMD existed and that it would be used. Whether or not that was based upon a doctored student thesis I do not know, but again it would seem unlikely that two of the Western worlds foremost Intelligence agencies would be duped in that manner.

What is clear that based upon the situation at the time, the invasion happened for two reasons. Firstly because it was wanted politically, and secondly because no-one wanted to take a chance that Iraq didn't have WMD. How would Blair have faced the British people if an ICBM landed on central London in the rush hour, killing thousands of people.

Ooops, sorry, didn't really think he had 'em?

No can't let that happen.

I'm expect the intelligence services were 100% certain the Saddam had the people to build WMD's. No question he had the people to build chemical ones, because he had used chemical in the past. He refused to allow inspections of some facilities. He was buying the things needed to make WMD's. He boasted he had them. He used them in the past. What is the reasonable conclusion? Sometimes a decision has to be made on scanty information.

I recall his scientists testifying after the fall that they lied to Saddam. They kept asking for money and he paid and basically they gave Saddam Dr. Brown's pinball machine parts

Well, myself...
I'm going to toast his demise with my new drink called the "Bin Laden" !
It's simply... Two Shots Followed By A Splash Of Water !

I'm happy that he is now with his... " 72 Sturgeons " !
(that's the fish species, for those that don't know).

Politics... What a waste of time, arguing over your different views !
You can not graft a new idea on a closed mind !
Most of the folks arguing here do not have the strength of character needed, to admit they are wrong even when faced with overwhelming evidence of that fact !
Of course, the folks engaging in these disputes all seem to have the inside track as to information !
So far from the truth it would be funny, if not the subject matter not so serious.
You were not involved in the intelligence gathering, the decision making and in most cases the prosecution of the decisions !
Therefore, the information that you are basing your strong views on is in reality...hearsay !
Seems most folks will look for the information that supports their claims and discount the rest as propaganda, on both sides of the fence.
And here I thought the folks posting on a Seti@Home Forum would be a scientific lot.
Shame on me for assuming so !
In closing, I would like to say... Lighten up folks, you will live longer !
We all have lenses we look at the world though, but were all capable of looking though our neighbors lens.
Question is, will you ?
The only way to truly change a person, is though example !
