A Pre-emptive "Bring 'Em On?"

In an attempt to goad Saddam Hussein into a war, US and British forces began an air assault on Iraq in 2002. Months before the UN Resolution 1441.

The ramifications of this story are numerous. First, this proves that we had decided to invade Iraq long before it was publicly announced. Second, this lends credence to the Downing Street memo that said "Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy." And third, WE KNEW THAT SADDAM DID NOT POSSESS WMD!

If we thought that Saddam truly possessed WMD, wouldn't this have put our security at risk? Wouldn't this have endangered the entire Middle East and possibly the world? Clearly, this is either the most reckless administration in history or we knew ahead of time that Saddam didn't have the WMD that we claimed he did. Which means that Colin Powell was sent to the UN to LIE! Which means that all of those speeches were full of LIES! Which means that this war that has killed over 1600 men and women that are being honored on this Memorial Day was predicated on a LIE!

It's as if George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld and all the others are saying, "Happy Fuckin' Memorial Day, everybody! Your loved ones didn't have to die, but then you wouldn't have anything to do today would you?"

(I'm not sure what's more offensive, my government lying to my face or the mainstream media ignoring it completely. This morning I scoured all of the major US news outlets and I can't find anything even mentioning this. Damn liberal media!)
