Bush was right about weapons of mass destruction

I saw a crowd of people on TV shouting insults to George W. Bush, when he visited Calgary recently, saying he should be tried as a war criminal.

Ignorance is a dangerous thing!

I read a great book a couple of months ago, called Saddam’s Secrets and written by Georges Sada, an Iraqi general and pilot.

Saddam Hussein had stripped down all his planes and filled them with weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). They were to be dropped on Israel.

Just at that moment, word came the Americans were going to attack. (I see the hand of God in this!) Saddam contacted Syria and flew his weapons of mass destruction to Syria.

Previously, for some years, Saddam had used these weapons of mass destruction on his own people, the Kurds for one.

Sada, who had spent his life serving his country, had this to say regarding Saddam: “With so much evil inside his head, and so much wealth in his hands, God only knows what he would have done if the Americans had not come in and stopped him.”

He goes on to say, “The decision to remove Saddam was the right thing to do! It was done at the right time and, I believe, in the right way.”

Bush was genuine. He said he was a Christian and every decision he made reflected that.

Sada says the whole world knew Saddam had weapons of mass destruction.

In Saddam’s Secrets, he says: “The evidence of Saddam’s nuclear and chemical weapons programs from the 1970s onward, from reliable sources inside and outside of Iraq, is overwhelming — so much so that it’s difficult to understand why so many people in the West have been unwilling to acknowledge the fact that WMDs were not only a fact of life in Iraq for more than 30 years, but they were Saddam’s obsession.”

I rest my case.
