Dear A, or not so dear,

A rationale, as then understood, was laid out by President GWB a clear rationale, as it was then understood within a few days after 9/11. His speech was made in person to the Congress.

Poison gas is a WMD. Saddam used it, on his own people. Subsequently he directed his subalterns to continue the nuclear program. We have that on tape. Who was responsible for Anthrax?

Do what you want, but if you are going to accuse people of genocide, you should be prepared to your name where mouth is.

Period. Full stop.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Interesting...": President George W. Bush (#43) evoked the rationale for the war in Iraq in his quite remarkable 2005 Innaugural Address,...Again?

Question: Isn't it traditional to give the rationale for a war before it starts? Which was back in the Spring of 2003, as I recall. So why did Bush have to "evoke" that rationale again?In case you haven't noticed: The original "rationale" for the Iraq War -- that Iraq had/was developing WMDs (despite the sanctions?) -- was long ago proven either 1) wrong or 2) a lie, depending on how much credence you give the 'Downing Street Memos'. And I see no reason not to give then a lot of credence.So actually what Bush, one of the crudest liars and responsibility-evaders in the history of the presidency, did in his second inaugural was attempt to redefine, after the fact, the "rationale" for the War to fit the current circumstances. To make it simple, i.e. so that even you can understand: He had to make up a new, high-falutin sounding "rationale" because the one originally given had been shown to be totally bogus.It's only because America has too many mushy-thinking simpletons like you that Bush and his gang of co-conspirators are able to keep getting away with this transparent fraud.Saddam Hussein is not the only one who deserves to be put on trial.
