Summoner101: cig-mkr: So there were weapons of mass destruction there ?
Oops, my bad they were only chemical weapons.

"We don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud." - Condoleezza Rice, September 2002

The Bush group was drumming up a nuclear scare unless you think chemical weapons are synonymous with mushroom clouds

I'll say.

I want to get the joke but I don't recognize the picture.

He's the sort of guy you'd talk to if you wanted to name something "Project Babylon."

And what is it that put America in the forefront of the nuclear nations? And what is it that will make it possible to spend 20 billion dollars of your money to put some clown on the moon? Well, it was good old American know-how, that's what. As provided by good old Americans like Dr. Wernher von Braun.

Gather round while I sing you of Wernher von Braun,
A man whose allegiance
Is ruled by expedience.
Call him a Nazi, he won't even frown.
"Ha, Nazi Schmazi," says Wernher von Braun.

Don't say that he's hypocritical,
Say rather that he's apolitical.

"Once the rockets are up, who cares where they come down?
That's not my department," says Wernher von Braun.

Some have harsh words for this man of renown,
But some think our attitude
Should be one of gratitude,
Like the widows and cripples in old London town
Who owe their large pensions to Wernher von Braun.

You too may be a big hero,
sponsored links
Once you've learned to count backwards to zero.
"In German oder English I know how to count down,
Und I'm learning Chinese," says Wernher von Braun.

I am so confused by the "chemical weapons don't count" argument.  SecState Powell specifically mentioned them in his address to the UN in Feb 2003. (Cf.

My opinion; the bulk of the WMD was in Syria before the US & Allies rolled in.  And we sucked at finding what was left after we rolled in.  There were indication that chemical weapons like the ones Hussein had used on his own people had been in Iraq in 2003 (cf. E M.html ), but somehow that didn't count either.

And, could someone source the "we knew about these and these were not what we were looking for" assertion?  I hear it, but haven't seen anything substantial behind it.

This being said, Iraq 2003 was the wrong war at the wrong time for the US.  We should have waited until the Iraqis slimed the Iranians, then wrung our hands about the tragedy.

You forgot about the anthrax. Colin Powell told the UN all about Saddams anthrax. John McCain said he used it in the US after 9-11. It was never found.

Iraq may be trying to attack us again right now!!!!
