The WMDs that Saddam moved out of Irag to Syria before that war are now being moved out of Syria to...?

Saddam had no WMD to move to Syria. That is the stupidest idea that has come down the pike. THINK for a minute.

Our justification for war was that Saddam had WMD & was a threat to the US because of them. If he had no WMD, then he was not a threat and the war was completely unjustified. If he had WMD, but shipped them to Syria, it means he made a conscious decision that he had rather DIE than use WMD on Americans. That means he was not a threat to the US and the war was completely unjustified.

Either way, the war was Iraq was a complete sham.

There were numerous other justifications given for the war on Iraq besides WMDs. They're all listed in the resolution that Congress passed at the time.

If Saddam had WMD, how could we have trusted him to send the WMD to Iraq vs using those weapons?

Still think that the Iraq War was a sham?

scrow -- of course he KNEW how the war was going to turn out. And he KNEW what would happen to him when he was inevitably captured.

Marc:

just because YOU lack reasoning power, it doesn't mean you should be calling people names.

Either he didn't have WMD or he shipped them -- because none were found. (Except for a few improperly destroyed canisters that were not usable as weapons & that had been attempted to be destroyed.)

If he did not have WMD, then the war was unjustified. If he DID have WMD, and he shipped them, then he made a conscious decision that he had rather lose the war (and his life) than use them on US troops. Thus he was NOT a threat to the US and the war was unjustified.

Either way, the war was unjustified.
