  • American soldiers show their war injuries

    Here is some photos showing what I said in the thread's title. These Soldiers sacrificed themselves to protect this world from Iraq's WMD's and the "obvious" threat to mankind that these WMD posed, so be gratefull.

    If it wasnt for Bush going into Iraq to kick so arse we would probably all be dead by now from Iraq's WMD's.

    What is your point, to make Bush look like a horse's ass, which he likely is or be flippantly sarcastic about the injuries these people suffered? They are the lucky ones, more than 3000 of their mates came home in a box.

      It was known that Saddam used WMD on his own people.
      I will enlighten you...

      Chemical Attacks: In 1980 the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency filed a report stating that Iraq had been actively acquiring chemical weapons capacities for several years, which later proved to be accurate.[16] In November 1980, two months into the Iran-Iraq War, the first reported use of chemical weapons took place when Tehran radio reported a poison gas attack on Susangerd by Iraqi forces.[17] The United Nations reported many similar attacks occurred the following year, leading Iran to develop and deploy a mustard gas capability. By 1984, Iraq was using poison gas with great effectiveness against Iranian "human wave" attacks [1]. Chemical weapons were used extensively against Iran by Iraq.[18] On January 14, 1991, the Defense Intelligence Agency said an Iraqi agent described, in medically accurate terms, military smallpox casualties he said he saw in 1985 or 1986. Two weeks after, the Armed Forces Medical Intelligence Center reported that eight of 69 Iraqi prisoners of war whose blood was tested showed a current immunity to smallpox, which had not occurred naturally in Iraq since 1971; the same prisoners had also been inoculated for anthrax.[19] All of this occurring while Iraq was a party to the Geneva Protocol on September 8, 1931, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty on October 29, 1969, signed the Biological Weapons Convention in 1972, but did not ratify until June 11, 1991. Iraq has not signed to the Chemical Weapons Convention.

      Nuclear: Osirak - A 40 MW light-water nuclear materials testing reactor (MTR) in Iraq. It was constructed by the Iraqi government at the Al Tuwaitha Nuclear Research Center, 18 km (11 miles) south-east of Baghdad in 1977. It was crippled by Israeli aircraft in 1981 in a surprise strike, Operation Opera, to prevent the regime of Saddam Hussein from using the reactor for the creation of nuclear weapons. The facility was completely destroyed by American aircraft during the 1991 Gulf War.


      Iraq Liberation Act: The Act found that Iraq had, between 1980 and 1998 (1) committed various and significant violations of International Law, (2) had failed to comply with the obligations to which it had agreed to following the Gulf War and (3) further had ignored Resolutions of the United Nations Security Council. The Act declared that it was the Policy of the United States to support "regime change." The Act was passed 360-38 in the U.S. House of Representatives[2] and by unanimous consent in the Senate.[3] US President Bill Clinton signed the bill into law on October 31, 1998. The law's stated purpose was: "to establish a program to support a transition to democracy in Iraq."


      If you want to lay blame. Head down to the UN building in NY and ask them why they didn't arrest Saddam after the first Gulf War....

        Good question.

        I think what MM is saying is that no WMDs capable of attacking the US or anything were found, yet we were told Iraq was a huge security threat to us.
