In their own words...

My friend Vincent, whom I used to work with at Fort KPNX, sent me this video. I don't really know how to preface this, as I think it speaks for itself. Let's see if it jogs anyone's memory about what was said about Saddam Hussein and the lead up to the war in Iraq. Now I can hear all the looney leftie libs and swamp fever KOS kids people saying, "there were never any WMD's found in Iraq, Bush lied" ad nauseum.

Well, good.

That means that we haven't lost a larger number of American GI's than we have already, due to Saddam 1) not using them had he decided to or 2) had no sufficient time to perfect them or deploy them or 3) was not able to supply Al Qaeda . I am still of the mind that they were there, may yet still be there and evidence from his own regime, i.e., Air Force and Intelligence officials, Iraqis, have said that during the lead up to the invasion, Saddam had the weapons or what was left of them, carted out on converted aircraft to destinations unknown, although a few of the Iraqi Air Force guys said it was Syria and or Iran. Hmmm.

But to get back to the following video, this is what the very people who now criticize the President and his decision to invade Iraq were saying as recently as 2004.

You know, let's put this in a little perspective. What would have happened to world history had we decided to invade Germany or Japan or both in say, 1935? Do you not think that might have saved countless innocent lives? And, Hitler did have a nuclear weapons program already in place for exploring the possibility of building a bomb that he could use against Britain, Russia and...the United States. Fortunately for all of us, things didn't happen the way Adolf planned.

Watch this video and see if it jogs your memory. When all is said and done, when our military is over there doing the job, would not the correct thing be to want them to complete the mission and WIN? Reagan put it best when asked about his cold war strategy, "We win, they lose." Too bad the Democrats don't have the balls to do the same.
