Oh really? So Bush didn't lie after all.

The assertion that Saddam Hussein had no Weapons of Mass Destruction prior to last year’s liberation has been rendered absurd – by United Nations weapons inspectors.

Demetrius Perricos, acting chairman of UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC), recently disclosed that his inspectors have been busily tracking shipments of illicit Iraqi WMD components around the world.

The Associated Press announced that UNMOVIC inspectors have found dozens of engines from banned al-Samoud 2 (SA2) missiles, which were shipped out of Iraq as “scrap metal.” Most recently, UNMOVIC agents found 20 SA-2 engines in Jordan, along with a great deal of other WMD materials. Officials discovered an identical engine in a Rotterdam port in the Netherlands and believe as many as a dozen extra SA-2 missile engines alone have been transported out of Iraq and remain unaccounted for. Inspectors believe at least some of these engines have also reached Turkey and hope to search Turkish ports in the near future.

UNMOVIC estimates as much as 1,000 tons of scrap metal a day are leaving Iraq bound for foreign shores.

Besides the SA-2 engines, inspectors also found Iraqi “dual use” technology in Jordan, items purportedly employed in civilian affairs that can be used to create or enhance deadly weapons systems. The New York Times noted that among those items were “fermenters, a freeze drier, distillation columns, parts of missiles and a reactor vessel - all tools suitable for making biological or chemical weapons.”

UN spokesman Ewen Buchanan put the threat of “dual use” technology into perspective. “You can make all kinds of pharmaceutical and medicinal products with a fermenter,” Buchanan said. “You can also use it to breed anthrax.”

Before the war, Saddam’s regime cast its possession of “dual use” materials in the most innocent light, a ruse familiar to students of the Cold War. UNMOVIC wisely rejected his sunny assessment.

Today, UNMOVIC inspectors are deeply concerned about the possibility of WMD proliferation. A Reuters news story captures their distress:

I find this strangely satisfying, given the treehuginghippyfucktard..(deep breathe)...morallybankruptsocialisticsympathizingappeasementmonkeys view on the whole WMD thing. Will they have to change their position on Bush's truthfulness? Will they have to publicly apologize?

Fuck no, they're liberals, they will do what they always do, and never acknowledge that they said anything to the contrary, and shift focus to their newest bitchfest.An apologizing liberal is alot like a bigfoot, sure you've heard about it, but do you know anyone who's seen it?

On another note. Who the hell will even hear about this in the world of alphabet news? (CNN, NBC, CBS..grrr...ABC, MSNBC)
My best guess is nobody will, or if they do, it will be somehow spun into. Yeah, but it's really about the oil.

Do you happen to have a link for your sources on this story? I have heard/seen nothing on this except from you.

I believe Bush was looking for WMD, but I also believe there is some thought about the oil over there. Bush is an oil man and he and his family make a lot of money when the gas prices are as they are right now.
I would never say it was just for oil, but I also will never say opil never was part of the equationm either.
