1570 Bodies And $300 Billion Later. . .
Well, it's official, there are no weaponsofmassdestructions in Eye-Rack.
Period. End of sentence.
It's funny, even though I was opposed to the war before it even started, for the "duh, isn't it obvious?" reasons such as Saddam's army was a third of what it was during the first Gulf War, that it was going to cost a trillion dollars and half a million soldiers to do it right, and because I wasn't convinced that Saddam was such a great threat then but not during the previous decade.
But I always thought Saddam had at least something he squirreled away or just forgot about. I mean, the CIA and the entire drumbeat at the time couldn't be THAT wrong, could it?
In any case, 9/11 changed everything and war rationales are now malleable Weaponsofmassdestructions are the thing of the past and now we are in the business of spreading Freedom™ to the little Eye-Rackees. What? Do you really wanna see Saddam back in power? Do you? DO YOU? HUUUUUUHHH???!!!
Well, at least I can take comfort that over half of Americans are objectively pro-Saddam which if I judge the media's critique of Bush's election win gives them a "clear mandate".
Update (May 3): CNN/USAToday/Gallup Poll now says percentage of Pro-Saddam Americans is now up to fifty seven percent, enjoying mandate over 41 percent of non-appeasers.
