Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass Destruction. And he supplied support to Osama Bin Ladin for the attacks against the United States on 9/11/01. Freedom is on the march and the Iraqi people are better off with Saddam out of power.
Saddam Hussein helped to fund the worst terror attacks on this country… oh. He had nothing to do with 9/111. But he did have Weapons of Mass Destruction that he was ready to use on us… oh wait he didn’t2. Well at least Freedom is on the march… after all look at Iran’s recent free elections3.
In response to whether we should have a time table for moving out of Iraq our “President” said that would give the terrorists “hope” that all they would have to do is wait us out. I mean, we never give up. Just ask the Koreans, Vietnamese and Somalians whether we pull out of unpopular wars that send American soldiers home in body bags. So answer the question Dubya, how do you measure when we can start bringing our troops home? When the Iraqi’s can “stand up” for themselves then we can “stand down”?
From Meet the Press, June 12th:
MR. RUSSERT: Realistically, Congressman Weldon and Senator Biden, how long in your estimation will it take for the Iraqis to have, say, 150,000 level-one troops so the Americans can come home?
REP. WELDON: I would say a minimum of eight to 10 months, maximum probably two years, and that’s assuming everything goes well.
After September the 11th, I made a commitment to the American people: This nation will not wait to be attacked again. We will defend our freedom. We will take the fight to the enemy.
Iraq is the latest battlefield in this war.
Um… did you read the 9/11 Commission Report? Didn’t think so. Too busy trying to read “My Pet Goat” or some “Dick and Jane” book. Repeat after me, “Neither Iraq nor Saddam Hussein had anything to do with the 9/11 attacks”, or for that matter did any country or leader of any country1.
From the speech:
Today, Iraq has more than 160,000 security forces trained and equipped for a variety of missions.
From Meet the Press, June 12th – both Repuplicans and Democrats agree:
SEN. BIDEN: Three battalions. You’re talking about thousands, Tim. Not tens of thousands.4
Come on Dubya! This isn’t a blow job that you are lying to us about. In fact, if you had gotten your knob polished once in a while you probably wouldn’t be going off half-cocked on your “Freedom Death March”.
