Now we are getting to the heart of the matter. First of all there is no easy or sure way to combat terrorisim but something must be done. Some action must be taken based on whtever knowledge is at hand.

Here is what the anti-war get nowhere people believe: "He just decided and spread false information to support his decision"

The information he "spread" was the best information available at the time. Democrats, foriegn governments, foriegn intelligence agencys, bunches of people around the world believed it.

Now that it turns out to be not entirely true every looks for a scape goat to dump on as if to cleanse themselves of any mistaken beliefs.

If you would use your internet skills for ferreting out quotes about the existance of WMD's from people like Clinton, Kennedy, Kerry and others on down to the level of Clarissa Pinkola Estes, you would find a huge body of popular opinion that Saddam did have WMD's.

Now all of this is forgotten and the spyglass on on GWB. "He lied" is the fashionable hue and cry of the people without the guts for war.

If the Anti-war and anti-Bush people would shut the hell up, this war would be over sooner with less dying on both sides. As it is, the terrorists see that if they keep it up long enough the American people will loose their resolve and withdraw.

Now people are saying Iraq never had anything to do with Al Quaeda or training terrorists that attacked the US. When confronted with the evidence they choose to go back to the "He lied" chant to shut out the evidence.

There is one fact that no one disputes. Saddam paid a $250,000 reward to the familys of Palestinian suicide bomers after they attacked Israel. I am no fan of Isreal but this action is still an act of supporting and propagating terrorisim. If he was capable of that he was capable of training terrorists in Iraq. To me Salman Pak proves that he did.

Now why don't these people that expend so much effort on negative things that accomplish nothing and even cause more damage to the war on terrorisim, focus their energy on something positive like fighting poverty and homelessness in the US. There are better things to do with your time.
