For the record

Since our unreachable archives are unreachable, I thought I'd state something again for the record:

People aren't scared weapons of mass destruction. People are scared of nukes.

Biological weapons are potentially very scary, but nobody has successfully deployed these in a massive way--and nobody really thought Hussein would be the first to crack that nut--so there we are talking about WD, not WMD. And as for chemical weapons... come on, was anybody worried about a deadly mustard gas attack?

Nope, in as much as people were truthfully worried about Iraq, they were scared of nukes. So if Hussein turns out to have buried or shipped to Syria a few truckloads of the height of WWI technology, it's hardly going to make people think that ousting Hussein was critical to ensure our national security.
