    Percentage of Americans who voted? Hmm. Around the same amount as will vote in Iraq, maybe less?

    The problem I see is, 40% of Iraqis will be in areas that are "safe" enough to vote, the rest are in dangerous zones. Out of those 40% who are eligible, how many will actually vote, knowing that the chances of getting shot, kidnapped or blown up are very high? Doesn't seem like it will truly be a fair, democratic election to me.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't one of the main reasons for going to war with Iraq the "fact" that Saddam Hussein had all kinds of WMDs and was an "imminent threat" to the security of the US?

    Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction.
    - Dick Cheney, speech to VFW National Convention, Aug. 26, 2002

    Right now, Iraq is expanding and improving facilities that were used for the production of biological weapons.
    - George W. Bush, speech to UN General Assembly, Sept. 12, 2002

    No terrorist state poses a greater or more immediate threat to the security of our people and the stability of the world than the regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq.
    - Donald Rumsfeld, testimony to Congress, Sept. 19, 2002

    The world is also uniting to answer the unique and urgent threat posed by Iraq.
    - George W. Bush, Nov. 23, 2002

    If he declares he has none, then we will know that Saddam Hussein is once again misleading the world.
    - White House spokesman Ari Fleischer, press briefing, Dec. 2, 2002

    We know for a fact that there are weapons there.
    - White House spokesman Ari Fleischer, press briefing, Jan. 9, 2003

    What we know from UN inspectors over the course of the last decade is that Saddam Hussein possesses thousands of chemical warheads, that he possesses hundreds of liters of very dangerous toxins that can kill millions of people.
    - White House spokesman Dan Bartlett, CNN interview, Jan. 26, 2003

    Okay so he doesn't have any. What the hell is this war about then? Where do we go from here? And how come Bush STILL cannot admit that he may have made a mistake???
    Hey Ophie, notice the first thing the U.S. did after capturing Baghdad was to start spying on Iran.

    Me thinks they had alterior motives.

    The reasons Bush hasn't admitted that it was a mistake would be because the people that support him's heads would explode.

    If he admits that it was a mistake, than 1000's upon 1000's of lives died for nothing. The United States would forever be tarnished by a horrible "mistake".
    That's not why he doesn't admit it was a mistake. They knew it was BS from the getgo and so did the rest of the world. It was just part of a larger operation, you know that.

    I'm talking about admitting to the fact that they lied about WMD... not anything else...

    Oh, admitting they lied, I misunderstood. Yeah, he'll never admit that. And neither will his followers.

    what? they didn't lie ... they were acting on perfectly reasonable, logical and probable misinformation that happened to be in their best interests anyway.
