The invasion of Iraq, as we all know, was based on the lie that peace-loving Saddam Hussein violated U.N. resolutions and threatened the security of his neighbors and the region by pursuing alleged weapons programs.
What I didn't realize until now was that even the French were in on the charade:
"What is at stake is how to answer the potential threat Iraq represents with the risk of proliferation of WMD. Baghdad's regime did use such weapons in the past. Today, a number of evidences may lead to think that, over the past four years, in the absence of international inspectors, this country has continued armament programs." -- Jacques Chirac, October 16, 2002
So cowboy Bush lied about WMD and his sidekick, Jacques, following right behind?
Boy, this conspiracy is getting complicated.
