    Eight Pre-War Claims Refuted
    • No weapons of mass destruction of any kind were found in Iraq.

    • No mobile biological weapons labs were found in Iraq.

    • Iraq did not seek to acquire yellowcake uranium from Africa.

    • The aluminum tubes were not suitable for nuclear weapons development.

    • Mohamed Atta, the lead 9/11 hijacker, did not meet with Iraqi intelligence in Prague.

    • Iraq did not provide chemical weapons training to al-Qaeda.

    • There was no collaborative relationship between Iraq and al-Qaeda.

    • The implication that Iraq was involved in the attacks of 9/11 was untrue.

    Ten Assurances by the Bush Administration

    1) The Iraq War won’t cost a lot of money
    2) We are prepared for every contingency
    3) We won’t need a lot of troops
    4) We will bring peace and freedom to Iraq
    5) We will find WMDs
    6) We will be welcomed as liberators
    7) We have the best plan available for victory
    8) The Iraq War will transform the Middle East
    9) It will be easy

    If everyone here disgusts you so much, and you won't engage inactual discussion or debate about things, preferring merely to rant and rave and cast stones, why do you continue to post?

    I'm not saying you should stop, I'm just curious why you continue.

    FACT - NEM likes to post people's opinions as written in stone facts.

    FACT - Even in the 5 page summary of the 2002 NIE on Iraq there is a specific mention that there was dissent on whether the aluminum tubes could be used for production of a nuke. Had either Senator bothered to read even the SUMMARY of the report before voting for/against the war they would have seen that.

    FACT - We don't know what intel Congress had since the other roughly 90 pages of the report was classified (by the CIA, not the White House)

    What's really disgusting, NEM, is your continual stated concern about "dead Americans". Don't dead Iraqis concern you? Don't dead Iraqis by the tens and hundreds of thousands at the hands of a monster concern you? Doesn't a madman who celebrates the 9/11 attack on Americans -- almost 3000 of them -- by shooting his rifle off of his balcony concern you??

    Concerns me. Geo Bush took Saddam the Butcher off the market, and Geo Bush is taking hundreds if not thousands of crazed maniac terrorists off the market every day. If you refuse to see that you deserve only pity. But I'm sure the Secret Service has you in their files, too.

    Yeah right NEM ... we have all learned that Bush really cares about his popularity ratings. You are entitled to your opinion but this statement you make all the time has "0" credability. 99% of Americans could ask for it to be over and things would remain status quo ... you know this ... we all know this.

    WTF does this even mean?

    We're all getting really tired of your police state advocations and doom predictions of anyone not quite as "holy" as you.

    You're completely out of control. COMPLETELY. You need to take some time off and cool down.

    For a man who pledges love for everyone and compassion, you spend way too much time here bathing in confrontation and anger. And that's really why you're the forum's biggest hypocrite.

    And every single one of those deaths and injuries by Iraqis and Americans will be in VAIN if we leave Iraq before the people are able to defend themselves against another Saddam who is waiting for his chance to take over that nation, as Hussein Saddam did. Not just my words, NEM. This is what I have heard from countless Iraqis from all walks of life.

    You go, NEMster! That ought to get them "PNAC" and "clean break" freaks!! Probably the "peak oil" problem will be solved, too. Did I mention the "Tri-Lateral Commission", the Masons, and the Bilderbergers??

    Good night!!

    So, all those Iraqis interviewed by CNN and the BBC are all on the RNC pay roll??? I think not, NEMster. They are real, live human beings, just like you.
