We were told by the US and UK that Iraq had terrible Weapons of Mass Destruction and they were a threat to us all.
We were told that they knew for certain that they had them and where they were.
We were told so many things. Now, the war is over, the weapons were not used and of course have not been found.
How threatening could they be if they did not even use them when being invaded by a massive force (of the countries they hate)?! Perhaps, as many suspect, they didn't use them because they didn't have them?
Now we're being told that we'll have to be patient and give them time to find them. Why? They said they knew where they were! They are also changing tack and now saying that finding WoMD is not important. Why? This is the thing that they said legitimisedthe war.
Also, why should we give them the time that they refused to give the weapons inspectors?
I get the impression that our UK government and Blair in particular is deparate to divert attention away from this issue and onto other news stories.
What do you think? Will they find WoMD? Does it matter? Did they just tell everyone whatever they needed to so tey could have their war? Can leaders help being lying bastards or is a pre-requisite for office?
