More bad news for the Bush haters
U.S. troops have uncovered millions of documents that detail Iraq's massive chemical and biological weapons programs. It's good news for America, but bad news for Bush-haters still looking for a reason to criticize the war.
REMEMBER THE U2 song with the hook "How long…how long must we sing this song?" Well, it's an appropriate chorus for those of us still dealing with those on the left who hate the fact that America won the war.
They first predicted a quagmire; they were wrong.
They then blasted the President for not putting in the troops required to win the war; on that count, they were wrong.
When we breezed into Baghdad, Bush-haters then predicted prolonged riots and chaos, saying Baghdad was better off with Saddam, wrong again.
Then they moved on to Pottery-gate, with Peter Jennings and the New York Times blaming America first for the looting of 170,000 priceless artifacts. When that number ended up being closer to 30, no apologies, no retractions.
Then they moved on to Weapons of Mass Destruction, so blinded by their hatred of Bush that they forgot Saddam himself admitted having the weapons in 1998, and the UN confirmed that fact last fall.
And today, these poor, whining naysayers have been proven wrong once again.
NBC learned that these documents give detailed instructions on how to hide materials and lie to UN weapons inspectors, and how to hide the deadly VX nerve gas. US troops also found materials to make the extremely deadly biological agent Ricin.
On top of that, an Iraqi scientist also led troops to nuclear weapons parts and documents
that were to be used to restart Saddam Hussein's nuclear program.
All in all, a great day if you believe stopping the proliferation of chemical, biological and chemical weapons is a good thing. But, it was a very bad day indeed if world security takes a back seat to your personal hatred of George W. Bush.
