Actually irony we all watch you do that all the time. At times you have valid points. Next you trump your credibility with spin

Also, Scallwag is the only one who can manage to type out a long post and say absolutely nothing. Bravo!

"Seems you only want proof from GWB regarding Iraq, even thouh the CONGRESS and the dozens of other countries in the coalition believed the intelligence."

The same way you blame Obama for everything.

LOL, HILARIOUS! Over and over, irony...irony...irony.

The blind cannot see. Why bother?

First, Seadog says the reason for the 2nd Iraq War was WMD's in the 80's. Then, he disregards the plain common truth that after we invaded and leveled the country, no one found any speck of evidence for WMD's. None. Even moreso, that was the SECOND time we leveled it.

Additionally, Seadog then seems to prove himself the only person left in this country who believes the Second Iraq War was justified. In fact, he seems to be quite complacent with arguing for its validity - 10 years later, trillions in waste later.

What's more absurd is while he justifies that debacle (over ONE TRILLION WASTED), he comments on other articles demanding that the gov't cut free lunch at schools. For

Dog why waste your energy arguing with him. When you have him beat he changes positions. It's like hitting a moving target. This fella is his own favorite target. When u catch onto his little game he's easy to beat. Let him dig his own hole and sit back and watch. He assumes what you are thinking and puts words into your mouth. Not worth the argument. He's the master of spin. Let him go let him babbel than drop the hammer on him. You must be patient though. He's easy

Irony says: "Seadog thinks Vietnam, North Korea, the USSR/Russia, and Israel never had nor do not have WMD's. Anyone with common sense knows the USA is FAR from the only one with WMD's" Soooo following that logic, why is it so far fetched that Iraq didn't have them?? SWhy is tit so farfetched WHEN THEY USED THEM on the Kurds??

So if those countries above HAVE WMDs, is there proof? Seems you cry about LIES in the Iraq war regarding WMDs. Is there varifiable proof the countries about have WMDs or did the Bush's Johnson, Kennedy, and Nixon all make up the intelligence too?

Also, if VietNam had WMDs - did they use them? If not, we still attacked them. Is there proof they had them?

Seems you only want proof from GWB regarding Iraq, even thouh the CONGRESS and the dozens of other countries in the coalition believed the intelligence.

Over and over, Seadog is proven wrong in his attempts to manipulate the conversation with logical fallacies in order to justify the Second Iraq War. The one most people with half a brain of common sense see was a mistake. His justification comes because of his blind zombie-like sheepie mentality.

List of countries with WMD's.

According to Seadog, we should attack them all.

What a joke.

Seadog thinks Vietnam, North Korea, the USSR/Russia, and Israel never had nor do not have WMD's?

Seadog, once again, his ability to critically think puts him at a disadvantage. Anyone with common sense knows the USA is FAR from the only one with WMD's.

And still, Seadog, I think we should whip Germany again. Am I right? Your response is "we beat them". We beat Iraq in the first Persian Gulf War, so why did we go at it again?

LOL, Seadog...

"Germany had WMDs in the 40's - I THINK WE FAUGHT THEM AND BEAT THEM. Vietnam,really, never saw them or knew that, any proof??? Korea - ANY PROOF??? Israel - ANY PROOF??? Russia -ANY PROOF??? HOW DO YOU KNOW the countries you listed have WMDs? SOUNDS LIKE A LIE TO ME.

Guess Seadog doesn't know about Screwball. As expected, only breeds what he's been fed.

So there are two scenarios: Either A), someone lied to them and they did not investigate because they were ignorant or B) someone lied to them and they didn't investigate because they didn't care to. Or, the third option - they made it up.

So either Bush, Cheney, Powell, etc. were liars, idiots, or deceivers. You pick!

And Seadog missed my metaphor. Germany had WMDs in the 40's - let's get over and investigate! Vietnam, Korea, Israel, Russia...they've all had WMDs since the 50's. Investigate them all!

Or better yet, take the Seadog approach. Attack them.

Numskull??? LOL No, numbskull. "I'm saying using justification for a 2002 war on intelligence from the 80's is not only a laughable way for you to justify your position, it's also absurd

And moron, I'm saying if he had WMD in the 80s chances are he still had them. Or do you think he just gave them away?

" Are you saying that those sources are liars? Are you saying the thousands of Kurds that died did so of natural causes?"

No, numbskull. I'm saying using justification for a 2002 war on intelligence from the 80's is not only a laughable way for you to justify your position, it's also absurd. But normal people know that because they possess the ability to think critically. I almost feel bad for you.

"Are you placing any blame on the intelligence that was given to the President and Colon Powell?"

The intelligence that was made up by the administration? Sure.

"Are you saying Powell lied to Congress and the UN? If so, he should be in prison."

Indeed, many have been calling for Bush, Cheney, Powell, etc. to be tried.

I"m cracking up right now. I LOVE how 50sIQ, Scallywag, and Seadog are trying to justify the lie because of their blind, ignorant sheepie attitude towards Bush and the GOP.

The irony, oh and it oozes so much from their yaps...that they are that which they hate.

Note Seadog's response to my comment but complete disregard for the content.

" If you do, than the data was correct - Saddam had WMDs and had already used them."

In 1918, Germany used mustard gas during The Great War. Guess we should attack them because they clearly were in possession of WMD's!

I will disregard the other parts of your responses because they are straw men. No where did I mention anything about Congress.

We knew 'SADDAM" had "chemical'biological WMD "because WE gave them to him.We also KNEW he could be taken out with crushing Military exercise (with near impunity), because he HAD gotten rid of them.

In my little world I would think a canister the size of a can of raid could desecrate an entire city the size of Jamestown. Let's go one further. Perhaps there the size of a 55 gallon drum. Strapped to a rocket a fella could get some real evel results. Any factory stores hundreds of 55 gallon drums used in there manufacturing processes. I'm pretty sure the drums are not marked WMD. It would take a team a year to open every drum and arisol container in Jamestown. It's an entire country you moron. The odds of finding something that has been purposely hidden is probably some where in the .0001 percent. Think for yourself you horses arss. You really can't be that stupid

It took an entire planet how long to find one man. Remember. WMD could be stashed anywhere. You say they didn't find them. So what. They could be in bill smiths garage and warehouse. Perhaps the world forgot to look there. How stupid this whole thing is.

Powell lost all credibility not over erroneous (perhaps) intelligence reports, but erroneous assumptions he was intelligent enough not to switch sides to vote for Obama.

Now Irony - I gave you three independany sources that PROVE Saddam had WMDs. Are you saying that those sources are liars? Are you saying the thousands of Kurds that died did so of natural causes? Are you placing any blame on the intelligence that was given to the President and Colon Powell? Are you saying Powell lied to Congress and the UN? If so, he should be in prison.
