A vehicle for venting on philosophy, religion, and the general state of things. Proprietor: C. W. Powell

Excite News: "WASHINGTON (AP) - Contradicting the main argument for a war that has cost more than 1,000 American lives, the top U.S. arms inspector reported Wednesday that he found no evidence that Iraq produced any weapons of mass destruction after 1991. The report also says Saddam Hussein's weapons capability weakened during a dozen years of U.N. sanctions before the U.S. invasion last year.

"Contrary to prewar statements by President Bush and top administration officials, Saddam did not have chemical and biological stockpiles when the war began and his nuclear capabilities were deteriorating, not advancing, according to the report by Charles Duelfer, head of the Iraq Survey Group."
Saddam's blood is on his own head. He could very easily have averted the whole thing by conforming to the UN resolutions. If a man over and over threatens the police, and then draws a fake gun, he dies by his own hand. So it is with Iraq. Saddam brought it on himself. But we may still find the weapons in Syrai, Iran, or in Miami, God forbid.
