60. What possible motivation?
Are you serious? Fear. Fear not of *'s phantoms, but of the mob. Opposing the war was unpopular, dangerous for officals seeking reelection, and downright treasonous according to the loudest voices in the media. Congress was afraid of us, not of Saddam, and it was so easy for them to rubber-stamp the invasion, conquest and occupation. They didn't have to declare war. The few voices of sanity and courage were even able to vote against it, knowing that the invasion would happen no matter how they voted; yes, even they were afraid.

Even if we believed that Saddam had WMDs, he had never used them against us even as his country was overrun in the First Gulf War, and against no one in the following decade of occupation. And no one had specifics.

You can't debunk nothing.
