We must be reminded of the REAL reasons that we went to war with Iraq. I watched the movie Green Zone today...disturbing how fiction can creep into the American Psyche and somehow get interpreted as fact.

I beg all of you to read the text of Secretary Powell's speech again, and again. The media and radicals have repeated the mantra so many times (that WMDs were the reason that we went to war) that I almost started doubting my own memory of what he said. It is clear, and up-front. We went to war due the failure of Saddam Hussein to comply with UN Resolution 1441, plain and simple. This resolution did, indeed, deal with WMDs, but it dealt with the acts and failures of the Old Iraqi regime to comply with resolution after resolution. The mere absence of huge stockpiles of WMDs is irrelevant to why we went to war.

Many WMDs have been found, or evidence that they did, indeed, exist. But that doesn't change the fact that he never accounted for the ones that he claimed to one-time have; or, how he destroyed them.

Just read it...
