    # 1 -- LINK to the (video) of  INTERVIEW of Saddam Hussein in 2003 ---- (by Dan Rather of CBS news):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XM6H5qsBFfI


    This interview occurred about 2 weeks BEFORE Bush "W" Bombed IRAQ -- (Shock & Awe) in 2003.

    Hear for yourself that Saddam said he did NOT have any forbidden WMD, that the weapons had been destroyed in the 1990's, that he did not intend to seek asylum in any other country, that he did NOT have any connection to Osama bin Laden, or to Al Quaeda.

    ---- [And SADDAM WAS TELLING the TRUTH].   (Click LINK for Video above).

    ----------------(Next interview)--------


    #2 -- LINK to a (video) of FBI agent -- who interrogated Saddam Hussein (after he was captured):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=KDKTqD9_jhM

    Saddam  told him all WMD's had been destroyed by UN back in 1990's, & others had been destroyed by himself; Saddam said he kept a few weapons because he was
    afraid of being attacked by Iran; Saddam said he had underestimated & miscalculated the intentions of Prez Bush. He did not believe that Bush would attack him. Saddam said that he had no ties with Osama bin Laden or Al Quaeda, (& was in fact afraid of him).

    ----[And Saddam WAS TELLING the TRUTH].   (Click LINK for Video above).

    So here we have PROOF that Prez Geo "W" Bush KNEW at least TWO WEEKS before he bombed
    and invaded Iraq, that Saddam Hussein was in fact NOT GUILTY of any of the charges made against him,
    & Saddam had not threatened or attacked America at all.

    SO THE ENTIRE 9 YR WAR WITH IRAQ that has
    cost us trillions of $$$ & bankrupted our Economy,
    killed thousands of our soldiers (for no good reason)
    & maimed & crippled thousands more, Now the ones
    who survived have to come home to houses that may
    have been foreclosed & massive unemployment.

    ALL BECAUSE BUSH was SO ARROGANT THAT
    HE WANTED THIS WAR ----- NO MATTER WHAT.
    ----He did not give a DAMN about the TRUTH.

    And since I personally SAW that Dan Rather (CBS)
    interview with Saddam -- on TV - on Feb 25, 2003,
    I can ADD a couple interesting things Saddam said:

    He said that he considered himself an ALLY of the United States, and
    had never wanted WAR with our nation, but that Bush wanted this war.
    So Saddam said he would go on satellite TV and DEBATE with Pres "W"
    Bush & each would give their viewpoints of the situation, & the whole
    world could watch them & decide who was telling the truth. So of course
    Bush just laughed it off, (Bush was afraid to let the whole world see that
    Saddam was actually smarter than him).

    So of course in BushWorld, it is better to wage a 9 yr WAR & kill & cripple
    thousands of soldiers, destroy the US economy, & now expect senior citizens
    to lay down & die because the GOP "stole" the funds for the war from Social
    Security & Medicare funds. And that is exactly what happened.

    But instead of "paying back" those funds to Social Security, Bush wants all Senior
    Citizens to give up their healthcare, their homes, their income for old age, & just
    quietly fade away, like dogs in the street. AND IF THEY DARE to complain, like join
    an OCCUPY Movement, they will be pepper-sprayed, beaten, handcuffed, & treated
    like criminals by a Gestapo police force.

    It is time you fellow Americans NOTICE that the GOP is not leading us into a Peaceful
    Future.The DEMOCRATS have given us peace & leisure & a stable economy, while ensuring
    the average man a better overall life than ever before in our history. All the GOP can think about
    is ETERNAL WAR, -- like in the novel "1984" -- by George Orwell.

    Right after 9/11 -- Geo "W" Bush gave a speech that said he was going to fight a War against Terrorism
    that would last for 50 yrs -- with 50 nations.

    Well, --- I VETO THAT. -- (You can, too). // JUST be SURE to VOTE for DEMOCRATS -- in 2012.

    Veronica's post about the WMD appeared on this site almost exactly 8 years ago, and it's worth reading again.

    The truth of the matter, though, is the fact that Hussein DID have weapons of mass destruction - because he got them from us.

    During the Iran-Iraq was, American weapons went to BOTH sides. The Reagan Administration secretly decided shortly after taking office in January 1981 to allow Israel to ship several billion dollars' worth of American arms and spare parts to Iran, despite the fact that Iran had taken over the U.S. embassy in 1979.

    The Reagan Administration secretly decided to provide highly classified intelligence to Iraq in the spring of 1982 -- more than two years earlier than previously disclosed -- while also permitting the sale of American-made arms to Baghdad in a successful effort to help President Saddam Hussein avert imminent defeat in the war with Iran, former intelligence and State Department officials say.

    The interventions also raise questions about the White House's often-stated insistence in the early 1980's that it was remaining neutral in the Iran-Iraq war, since the United States was arming both sides in its desire to see neither side dominate the vital oil region.

    In the end, officials acknowledged, American arms, technology and intelligence helped Iraq avert defeat and eventually grow, with much help from the Soviet Union later, into the regional power that invaded Kuwait in August 1990, sparking the Persian Gulf war last year.

    So ...

    We helped Hussein get weapons, which he then used to attack Kuwait, which caused us to launch Operation Desert Shield in 1990 against Iraq, and Desert Storm in 1991,

    In March of 2003, we invaded Iraq because Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The only problem, though, is that he no longer had any weapons of mass destruction.

    The Iraq war eventually led to the rise of ISIL and ISIS.

    The costs of the 2003–2010 Iraq War are often contested, as academics and critics have unearthed many hidden costs not represented in official estimates. The most recent major report on these costs come from Brown University in the form of the Costs of War, which totaled just over $1.1 trillion. The United States Department of Defense's direct spending on Iraq totaled at least $757.8 billion, but also highlighting the complementary costs at home, such as interest paid on the funds borrowed to finance the wars.

    In 1992, then-Attorney General Bill Barr was referred to by the New York Times as Cover-up General Barr for his role in burying evidence of George H,W, Bush's involvement in selling WMDs to Hussein and his involvement in the Iran-Contra scandal.

    It is true that Hussein had WMD's, which he used on his own people and people in neighboring Iran. However, Iraq-Saddam Hussein had no ICBM capabilities, his weapons couldn't reach American soil.

    "An intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) is a guided ballistic missile with a minimum range of 5,500 kilometres (3,400 mi) primarily designed for nuclear weapons delivery (delivering one or more thermonuclear warheads). Similarly, conventional, chemical, and biological weapons can also be delivered with varying effectiveness, but have never been deployed on ICBMs." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intercontinental_...

    But Bush and his regime knew all of that. Still, he had our military invade a country that had NOTHING to do with the 9/11 attacks.

    How come we again make the same mistakes and end up with criminal Barr again? The say in Dutch even an donkey is not so dumb to make the same mistake twice. But yeah here they repeat it every time an Republican gets the reign.

    Shaking my old head; would n't we have an fantastic health care system with the 1.1 trillion wasted on such stupid war which still is haunting us today with all the refugee's as an US caused "pain" in Europe. It is time the EU stops helping fighting the instigated US wars. Amen.
