How far into denial can you get?...

We ain't talking about a river in Egypt, folks!

Now, look, I know you can read the news but did you see this article?

It begins:

Vice President Dick Cheney asserted on Thursday that a report by the chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq, who found no evidence that Iraq produced weapons of mass destruction after 1991, justifies rather than undermines President Bush's decision to go to war.

No shit. Cheney goes on to say, "As soon as the sanctions were lifted he had every intention of going back" to his weapons program.

Oh... I see... so that's every reason for throwing away over 100,000 lives and billions and billions of dollars... because we think they might have done something that they hadn't been doing had they the opportunity... before we made them hate us even more...

That's why they call it "pre-emptive", right guys?
