That graphic captures a quote from me to my better half. She did not appreciate the “SHH”. Charles Krauthammer was a great intellect who will be missed.

Yes let's invade Iraq because of WMDs that we know don't exist. The UN inspectors are in there looking anywhere they want and they aren't there.
What can go wrong?

How could they have used them on the Kurds if they didn't have them? IIRC didn't the inspectors or somebody find the artillery shells for binary agents? Any decent chemical plant can handle the production.

Edit: The Iraqis knew where the inspectors were going well ahead of time and many places were off limits between Desert Storm and the Iraq War. This is the same problem that the Iran nuclear deal had. The Iranians could delay or prevent the inspectors from looking at particular sites and the appeal process would take significant time.

Why would the issue of WMD’s in Iraq be an item of discussion in this forum?

May we keep politics out of this tribute?

How are we supposed to ignore the mans life when paying a tribute to him?
I take it you'd have no problem with me paying a tribute to Osama Bin Laden then?

No offence UTAlumnus but everything you said is untrue.

Saddam used chemicals on the Kurds; but that was in the 1980s.

The inspectors in Iraq found nothing:

Wikipedia: In March 2003, Blix said progress had been made in inspections, and no evidence of WMD had been found.

On Iran:

wikipedia: The IAEA, EU, Russia and China have all affirmed that Iran is respecting the limitations on its nuclear program.[554] The IAEA, the foremost authority on the matter, has repeatedly deemed Iran in compliance with the nuclear deal. The U.S. State Department has also certified that Iran is holding up its end of the bargain, and a host of experts affirmed these findings.[555] IAEA Director General Amano said that "Iran is subject to the world's most robust nuclear verification regime.

Hopefully the moderators will soon close this thread down.

For the sake of discussion let's say the former president dies. I can say something positive without being political. I'll give an example of something I may say if he did:

I did not agree with a lot he has done; despite opposition even from his financial supporters, he followed his conscience and defended his ground.

??? Did you accidentally post in the wrong thread? What does your post have to do with a tribute to a gracious man who has died, and whose death brought sadness to many?

Or at the very least, delete the posts from the one who is trying to divert and ruin it.
