56. Even if he'd HAD those weapons, we weren't right to invade!
First off, WMD is (as Krugman pointed out), a terrible term - it lumps true "weapons of mass destruction", nukes, with "weapons of limited destruction unless you get really lucky" like VX and anthrax.

The nuke thing was NEVER believable to those like us who read and participated in debunking of the lies as they came out. And, per Ritter, anything Hussein might have had was likely beyond its useful shelf life.

There was no threat. None. Zero. We both know this. Kerry knows this. WHY would we need to threaten force? Hussein couldn't create more weapons, that's pretty much a given.
