Most of the posters here look at the Iraq war in hindsight which is 20/20 vision as usual.
SH could have avoided all of this by abiding by the agreement that was in place and he agreed to. Allow the inspectors in and with full access. He refused and he refused many, many times.
He did indeed have the weapons, he gassed his own people.
The WORLD'S intell community all agreed, he still had them and since he refused to abide by the agreements in place force would be used. This country was in favour of the invasion, both by the politicians and the populace. Now to come on here and rant and rave on how bad it was is, well stupid.
What would have been said if we ignored SH and then he did indeed use WMDs at a later date?
