slow boat to denial
Iraq is preparing to destroy its own oil fields, food supplies and power plants and blame America for the devastation in the event of war, U.S. intelligence officials said Wednesday.
Attention all purveyors of peace and handshakes and appeasement: your boat to denial land is now leaving. Please board immediately.
Saddam has been preparing for a war with the United States and its British allies since the weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks, the officials said.
Anyone who still believes that Saddam is not a threat to us or his own people is either a complete idiot or should lay off the peace pipes.
If you read the whole article (and I'm in too pissy of a mood to sit here and quote the whole thing line by line) you will see where Saddam has put us.
He obviously has weapons. Only a fool does not believe that. And he intends to use them. The thing is, we lose either way. If we invade, he deploys everything he has against his own people. If we don't invade, he employs everything he has against us, eventually. A leader does not collect biological and chemical warfare just to say he has them. If you produce these weapons, it's because you intend to use them.
Heads out of your asses, folks. We are fucked no matter what we do - or don't do.
