I have personally spoken with one of Saddam Hussain's former air vice-marshals, General Georges Sada, and according to him (he also wrote this in his book and mentioned it in interviews on tv), Iraq had WMDs but flew them out in unmarked airplanes to Syria prior to the invasion of Iraq. In addition I have read his book and according to him, there are numerous positive changes which have occurred in Iraq thanks to the invasion. I would be more inclined to believe that personal account of a first-hand, reputable witness than that of the MSM which adjusts its coverage (or its slant on stories) according to what sounds most shocking; or for that matter over some government report saying there were no WMDs, when we have no more assurance that this new report is any more reliable than the previous reports which are now said to be false.
Now that doesn't in itself justify the invasion; is it just for us in the West to invade and depose every oppressive dictator around the world? I would also question the legitimacy of our recent intervention in Libya. Does it even make any sense from an economical standpoint? I think it was a terrible blunder for the US from a PR, financial, and strategic (aside from the initial invasion) standpoint. However, that being said, I am glad that there is one less crazy ruthless dictator in the world and that the Iraqi people are now free to choose their own leadership and destiny...whether that turns out for good or bad, only time will tell.
