5. Dennis - 2002
Edited on Fri Nov-28-03 03:38 PM by sandnsea
What was Dennis' plan to accomplish this? Certainly Bush's approach wouldn't have done any good at all. Dennis called for the sanctions to end, which is good. But since no country had been able to get inspectors in Iraq, how did Dennis propose to do it?

I only quote this here to show that even Dennis Kucinich acknowledged the need to be concerned about an Iraq with WMD. Congress was not gullible.

"It must involve the United Nations. Inspections for weapons of mass destruction should begin immediately. Inspectors must have free and unfettered access to all sites.

The time has come for us to end the sanctions against Iraq, because those sanctions punish the people of Iraq for having Saddam Hussein as their leader. These sanctions have been instrumental in causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of children. Emergency relief should be expedited. Free trade, except in arms, must be permitted."
