I was doing my weekly journey through the Blogasphere when I came across revka’s take. A total right-winger and she has some interesting post. By the way, it was through Mahndisa’s Thought that I came by this blog. Got two plugs in one paragraph, I’m getting good.
Anyway, she is definitely not feeling those of us on the left and that is no big deal. We started to debate the justification of going to war in Iraq and she noted that we actually did find WMD’s in Iraq. She then went on to claim that Saddam could have moved his stockpile to Syria.
I in turned provided some links that show that the CIA’s final report after the war stated that there were no WMD’s found in Iraq. I then posted a link of the 9/11 Report that showed that there was no link between Saddam and Al Qaeda.
Like most red hot righties, she brought up Clinton and yada yada yada. I’m not one for debating the ethical nature of political parties because I think both Dems and the GOP advocate a cesspool mentality when it comes to ethics. But my final point is this. Based on the reason that Bush sold the war, was Iraq a just war? And I would like official confirmation of this information. I’m not looking for novelist like Ann Coulter or pain pill popping, block heads like Rush Limbaugh. If a righty can provide the information to these four questions – then I will say that the war in Iraq is justified.
1. Show that Iraq did indeed have WMD's and that we found them or know where they are.
2. Iraq had indeed reconstituted its nuclear program and the centrifuges were for a nuclear program.
3. Iraq was indeed an imminent threat to American security.
4. Saddam indeed have a relationship with Al Qaeda and would have provided them with WMD's.
This is where the rubber meets the road. Because I’m not interested in the fact that Saddam gassed his own people. That was over decade ago and if we really cared we would have done something then. I’m not interested in the fact that Saddam was a bad person… so are a lot of dictators around the world.
If we were really serious about rooting out terrorist regimes we’d be in Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Pakistan right now. If it were the thought of rogue regimes with nuclear weapons we would attack Iran and North Korea.
The only thing I am interested in is a government report verifying the initial justification for war. No talking points, government reports. Ok, neo-cons, the floor is yours.
