The problem being is that Blix was not looking in 95 percent of the country.
He was given 70 locations to check for WMD. He checked seven and then told
the UN we are not finding it so it must not be here!!!  It was after that
briefing that things went down hill. After that France, Germany, Russia
decided not to support the UN resolution. It was after this that Hussan
chose to cut back on his cooperation. Hussan knew after that briefing he had
support. France, Germany & Russia feed into his idea he had support. The
protesters in hollywood gave Hussan the idea he had support. If it was not
for this, we could have kept a united front against him. Made him understand
he did not have any support and had to follow through with the UN's demands.
With that done, we could have adverted war. the actions of Blix, France,
Germany, Russia and hollywood are the reason we are at war. They are the
ones that helped Hussan think he had support in the world. With that belief,
he chose not to cooperate.

That has got to be the biggest load of horseshit I have ever read on this

Do you *honestly* think, for even a second, that Bush would ever have walked
away from this calmly?  The administration did everything it could to hobble
the inspectors and interfere with the process, which all of the inspectors
noted repeatedly.  They were given bad information by the CIA and other US
intelligence organizations.

But the main thing is..it didn't matter what they were or weren't gonna find in
Iraq. They were going in after Saddam regardless.  They kept shifting reasons
as times changed...first it was about terrorism, then it was about WMD, then it
was about regime change, now it's about Iraqi Freedom, only to find that the
Iraqis don't want the US there.  

Rumsfeld, hours after 9/11, was asking his aides if there was any way to pin
this on Saddam.  

Bush wantedt his war, and he was determined to have it at any cost, for any
reason.  That was in the cards months ago.  Anybody who thinks he was gonna
just walk away quietly is living in a dream world.
