Half of the U.S. believe Saddam had WMDs

A recent poll shows that half of Americans believe Iraq had the WMD when troops invaded 3 1/2 years ago. This of course leaves the left with that uncomfortable look like someone just gave them a wedgie. How could people believe such lies!

Well, maybe its because it is not a lie. WMDs have been found in Iraq. Here is a list of the weapons of mass destruction that have been found in Iraq since Operation Iraqi Freedom began:

500 tons of yellow cake uranium. Now, that is 1 million pounds for those of you who went to public schools. Anyways it was found at Saddam's nuclear weapons facility. I bet you didn't know he had one of those.

1.8 tons of partially enriched uranium found in the same place. This is what you need to make nukes. Hidden centrifuge parts and blueprints.

Two dozen artillery shells loaded with Sarin and mustard gas.

Of course the left tries to downplay all this and says the weapons were old and unuseable. Really, well, I guess they won't mind if we store the evidence in there back yard then.

You may want to print this off and impress your liberal friends with the truth. Here are the links.

Hi, Tony (I am assuming you write these posts, even though that would mean you write about yourself in the third person). A few comments:

1. Based on your apparently inadequate understanding of English grammar, I don't think you are in a position to be critical of those of us who went to public schools.

2. Getting to the substance of your post, I'm assuming a proud military man like yourself would be aware that yellowcake uranium, while not produced by Betty Crocker, is also NOT a WMD all by itself. Neither is partially enriched uranium fuel, as both are used for legitimate power production.

3. If you are going to tell this story, it would probably be worth getting the other side of it out there--in particular the fact that the weapons inspectors, whose job it is to INSPECT for WEAPONS, did not find evidence of delivery systems that would make the above alleged WMDs actual WMD components. They might have, I grant you, if our esteemed President Bush had not pulled them out in order to start a war. But we'll never know, will we?

All of this being said, I appreciate your efforts to get your viewpoint out there--if not for you, I wouldn't have a reason or the opportunity to do the same.

yes, and a bullet is not a weapon without the delivery system called a gun...

since your so comfortabable with yellow cake uranium and enriched uranium being harmless...just a WMD componet...lets store the stuff in your back yard.
