I know they say that nobody likes to hear you say, "I told you so." But, war supporters? We fucking told you so:
The comprehensive 15-month search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has concluded that the only chemical or biological agents that Saddam Hussein's regime was working on before last year's invasion were small quantities of poisons, most likely for use in assassinations.
A draft of the Iraq Survey Group's final report circulating in Washington found no sign of the alleged illegal stockpiles that the US and Britain presented as the justification for going to war, nor did it find any evidence of efforts to reconstitute Iraq's nuclear weapons programme.
1,030 Americans dead, all for non-existant WMDs. Proud of that? Then vote for Bush in November. Think maybe that was a mistake? Then vote for Kerry. It's pretty simple, really.
To quote the exceptionally articulate James Woolcott (the newest addition to my blogroll):
THE SUREST WAY TO BE PROVEN WRONG IS TO GIVE GEORGE BUSH THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT.
The environment. The judiciary. WMDs. The occupation of Iraq. The deficit. Pick a subject, any subject, and giving Bush the benefit of the doubt has been a guaranteed loser.
And remember, losers are much more disliked than I-told-you-so-ers. |
