What if we find nothing in Iraq?

what if we find no chemical weapons, no torture chambers, no rape rooms? I'm not saying they aren't there, what if they are just destroyed before we get there? Do you think the U.S. govt would fake them? Do you think that if we do find them, some of the nay sayers would change their minds?

i think its very possible to not find any weapons. if he doesn't use them against our troops he has no use for them so he could have them destroyed as soon as an invasion starts

What of the reports that SH is moving chemical weapons to ready the defense of baghdad? And the torture chamber stories have been around for years. You can't wipe all evidence of it since too many people know where they are.

venusian I was thinking the same thing but you know what. Our intel has already said they are handing out chemical weapons to use on our troops when they try to invade Baghdad. I guess there is some main highway that our intel has said they will most likely use it there.

It doesn't matter. The principal thing has been accomplished. We and the Brits have added to our empire.

Yes, if they donít find anything the evidence will be manufactured. He has already been caught manufacturing evidence, citing phony studies and so on. So yes they will find evidence.

There doesn't need to be any hard evidence. There are thousands of first hand accounts of the WMD's, ethnic cleansing, and human rights atrocities. More than enough to hold up in court.

It is probably more accurate to call it grossly exaggerating the evidence. However, If you want an example of manufactured evidence it would be the phony IAEA report he cited stating Iraq could have Nuclear weapons in a year in the nationally televised speech he gave.

What if?

Does anyone on this forum believe that Iraq doesn't have chemical and most probably biological weapons?

Even goop & bfrank have to admit that Iraq does possess those weapons.

How do they know?

Has Bush taken an accredited IQ test? How many of the previous Presidents have taken such a test?

Unless you know something the UN inspectors don't, I don't see how you could just happen to stumble upon a big pile of weapons and say "look! we told you so!".

On the opposite side of the picture, the French are now saying that should Saddam deploy a chemical or bilogical weapon against coalition forces, they may be willing to do a little dance for us.

France's ambassador to the United States, Jean-David Levitte, said Tuesday that his country might re-think its position on war with Iraq if Saddam were to use biological or chemical weapons against coalition forces.

"If Saddam Hussein were to use chemical and biological weapons, this would change the situation completely and immediately for the French government," Jean-David Levitte said.

I don't believe you would find it all that difficult to know something that the inspectors don't know.

The only thing that would change the French position is if the US and Great Britain allowed Saddam to stay in power.
