"We've already discovered just so far the remains of 400,000 people in mass graves," said British Prime Minister Tony Blair on November 20 in London. The United Nations, the U.S. State Department, Amnesty International, and Human Rights Watch (HRW) all estimate that Saddam Hussein's regime murdered hundreds of thousands of innocent people. "Human Rights Watch estimates that as many as 290,000 Iraqis have been 'disappeared' by the Iraqi government over the past two decades," said the group in a statement in May. "Many of these 'disappeared' are those whose remains are now being unearthed in mass graves all over Iraq."


As far as I'm concerned Saddam Hussein himself is a weapon of mass destruction, what else can you call someone that has killed over 400'000 of his own people?

How can anyone say this country doesn't need to be liberated?

Why have there not been any responses to this post?

Where are my liberal friends that say the war is unjustified for any reason?

You will find they bite on some things and leave others alone. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif Kind of like when they start talking about W's public speaking, no sense in me trying to defend it, the man is a horrible public speaker. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif At least when un-rehearsed.

My favorite is the one about breathing on Mars.

After all, the Vice President is technically the head of NASA, so he should know.

Been reading too much Edgar Rice Burroughs Dan? /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif
