30. Now you misstate my own beliefs
Edited on Tue Aug-10-04 12:23 AM by jpgray
I never argued that the WMDs were out there, because I read Ritter's article which you obviously have not. The threat of force, however, is a reasonable tool to have when dealing with Saddam. You can argue it was dumb to vote for such an authorization under Bush (it WAS!), but you can't argue that the threat itself was never needed with Saddam--that flies against everything the learned people have to say on the subject. So please, don't run from your original argument and put false statements in my mouth that I have never said. You said that force was totally unnecessary, I'm trying to provide facts and links to cast doubt on that assertion.

edit: Toning it down a little--don't want to get in a flamewar but I don't like being accused of believing in the WMD snipe hunt either.
