How many of you believe that the war in the East is truly based on weapons of mass destruction as was said the reasons of starting it and briefly (25 sentences or less) How do you feel about the war there?

I think the American public now knows that there was no way it was based on WMDs because all the American intelligence agencies have been saying that they told the President from the beginning that there was nothing there. I think it was a political move that has backfired on the Republican Party in the US and was used to try and divert attention away from other things, such as the economy. The President was hoping the American people would rally around him during war time, but now they are losing faith in him and his administration to do anything correctly. I feel that the war has caused more problems in the Middle East than it was meant to solve and while Saddam Hussein was a tyrant, he kept things stable and now that he is out of power the country of Iraq has been thrust into a civil war.

The intelligence agencies told him the whole time that there were no WMD's? That's not true. Everyone and their mother believed Iraq had WMDs. Just because we can't find them after Saddam had so much time to do whatever he wanted with them, doesn't mean they aren't there.

I think they did know that there wasn't any WMD. I do not support the war in Iraq - but I support the troops. I think he was just trying to finish what his father started and 911 gave him the perfect oppurtunity. He took our fears of war and terrism and went for it. He should have took that effort in finding Osama.
