U.S. Report Finds Iraq Was Minimal Weapons Threat in '03

So let me get this straight. In the last couple of days, Bremer says we needed more troops, said he should have been more persistent in making this request (read: his request was denied), denied making that request, then said that his remarks were intended for a private audience, and the White House first refused to comment on any of it, then released a statement saying the preznit only listens to his commanders on the ground and that Bremer supports the preznit's Iraq plan now so the whole thing is moot. And Rummy said that there was no tie between Iraq and al Qaeda and then he said that his comments were "misunderstood." Then chief American arms inspector Duelfer concludes that Iraq had no weapons and had no capacity to make them, meaning that they were never an imminent threat to us. Of course, all the dissemblers are now saying that since he had an intention to reinstate his weapons program when sanctions ended, he could have been a threat to us. And Condi? Where's Miss I Don't Know in all this? Why, she's busy telling us she, as National Security Advisor, didn't know (again) that her own energy experts did not believe that Iraq's aluminum tubes were for their nuclear program, evidence she used to rationalize the war with her "smoking gun as mushroom cloud" fearmongering. God, I hate that woman.

I wonder what would have happened if we had waited a minute-and-a-half before INVADING A COUNTRY THAT POSED NO THREAT TO US, KILLING AND MAIMING THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, RUINING OUR REPUTATION IN THE WORLD, AND SENDING AL QAEDA RECRUITMENT THROUGH THE ROOF (WHICH IS ON FIRE, BY THE WAY)?

(crickets chirping)

Why do these people hate America?
