Zombietime called it, based on realities on the ground and historical context.
Due to yours truly’s ongoing computer-handicapped situation (which will thankfully end soon), the banner has been hotlinked from Zombietime. I apologize for having to do that, and hope whatever traffic heads Ztime’s way makes up for the bad manners.
Dissenting commenters will have to demonstrate in their comment text that they have read
Zombietime’s post before I will allow their comment to go up.
I probably won’t be able to moderate any comments until late afternoon or early evening.
Update, Nov. 23: Hmm. I ought to impose a “must be informed” comment requirement on more posts.
Update 2: Just so I have a marker for the future, I’m going to put the key links that debunk the “No WMDs” lie here:
IBDeditorials.com, July 2008 –
Hear about the 550 metric tons of yellowcake uranium found in Iraq? No? Why should you? It doesn’t fit the media’s neat story line that Saddam Hussein’s Iraq posed no nuclear threat when we invaded in 2003.
BizzyBlog.com, April 2007 — “Well, Isn’t This Special? Munitions Found Last Year Were Officially WMDs”
BizzyBlog.com, November 2005 — “The ‘No WMD’ Lie (with LINKED Proof)”
History will get it right, even if today’s media and politicians can’t or won’t.
Remember, “No WMD” claimants: YOU are the ones who got sloppy and said there were NO WMDs, with no exceptions, and no redefinitions. Therefore, YOU have been, and always will be, WRONG.
