In virtually every case - chemical, biological, nuclear and ballistic missiles - the United States has found the weapons and the programs that the Iraqi dictator successfully concealed for 12 years from U.N. weapons inspectors.

Could Bush Possibly Make the Same Mistake Twice? Yeah!http://www.antiwar.com/reese/?articleid=4816
Iraq, with just over 20 million people, a flat terrain and a dilapidated military, has given us quite a bit of trouble. Try Iran, which has nearly 70 million people, a mountainous terrain and a much more effective military. You Bush lovers should write your man and advise him to let that sleeping dog lie.
Teheran 'executed CIA's spy network 10 years ago'http://telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml;sessionid=VP5P5KM4VFTLBQFIQMFSNAGAVCBQ0JVC?xml=/news/2005/02/13/wiran13.xml&sSheet=/portal/2005/02/13/ixportal.html
Last month New Yorker magazine claimed that the Pentagon had dispatched special forces to scout for possible military targets inside Iran, in an attempt to locate the key clandestine sites for the country's nuclear programme, having lost confidence in the ability of the CIA to gather information.
War Party's Atrocity Pornhttp://www.uruknet.info/?p=m9154&l=i&size=1&hd=0
All warfare is based on deception, including the crude and ephemeral deceptions embodied in atrocity porn. But war involves subtle deceptions, as well. The subtlest and deadliest is the idea that the state is conducting a war to protect the people from foreign enemies, rather than exploiting foreign conflicts to wage war on the rights and prosperity of the people.

We Have Nothing to Fear But Bush Himselfhttp://www.antiwar.com/roberts/?articleid=4820
You see, the facts that the US invaded Iraq on false pretenses, killed and maimed tens of thousands of Iraqis, shot down women and children in the streets, blew up Iraqis' homes, hospitals and mosques, cut Iraqis off from vital services such as water and electricity, destroyed the institutions of civil society, left half the population without means of livelihood, filled up prisons with people picked up off the streets and then tortured and humiliated them for fun and games are not facts that explain why there is an insurgency. These facts are just descriptions of collateral damage associated with America "bringing democracy to Iraq."
"We went into Iraq not for elections," Rangel said on NBC's "Meet the Press."http://dailynews.att.net/cgi-bin/news?e=pri&dt=050213&cat=news&st=newsd887ps6o0&src=ap
"We went there to knock off Saddam Hussein, but the American people thought it was connected with 9/11, there was weapons of mass destruction, there were connections with al-Qaida. It was all a fraud," he said.

A strategy document outlining proposals for eliminating the threat from Al Qaeda, given to Condoleezza Rice as she assumed the post of national security adviser in January 2001, warned that the terror network had cells in the United States and 40 other countries and sought unconventional weapons, according to a declassified version of the document.

Map of the escalated killings after Iraq's sham electionhttp://www.nytimes.com/imagepages/2005/02/13/international/20050213_IRAQ_GRAPHIC.htmlShiites Win Nearly Half of Iraqi Votes http://dailynews.att.net/cgi-bin/news?e=pri&dt=050213&cat=frontpage&st=frontpageap20050213_471&src=abc
In the United States, where more than 24,000 Iraqis cast ballots, the alliance was strongest with more than 31 percent, while Allawi's list came in sixth with about 4 percent finishing not only behind the Kurds but also behind two tiny Assyrian Christian parties and a communist-led party.Shiites Dominate Iraq Election; Kurds 2nd http://www.truthout.org/docs_2005/021305Z.shtml
US puppet, dead last.
The Shiite Muslim coalition won the most votes in Iraq's National Assembly elections with 47.6 percent of the ballot. The result falls short of the two-thirds majority needed to form a government and indicates that a coalition administration may be formed around a secular figure such as interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi.http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=10000087&sid=aVI2A9pzCX0s&refer=top_world_news
The purpose of the "recount" of the Iraq election was to reduce the Shi'ite majority to a "plurality", which would allow Bush to impose a coalition government with his puppet still in charge.Two Years After the Fall of Saddam, the Resistance Controls All Major Roads into Baghdadhttp://www.counterpunch.org/patrick02122005.html
Insurgents, mostly fanatical Sunni Muslims, are showing that they are prepared to slaughter mercilessly Shias and anybody connected with the interim Iraqi government or the US occupation.
Okay George. Saddam in in jail, there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq to begin with (you lying sack of crap), the people of Iraq don't want us there, the newly elected government does not want us there, so it is time to forget Iran, kick out your Neocon advisers, jail the Israeli spies, and BRING OUR KIDS HOME.http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/
