"Remember all the WMD's everyone said Saddam had? That couldn't be found? Remember all the satellite images of truck convoys racing onto Syria? I do."- - - Curmudgeonly & Skeptical

Remember all the ineffective actions of past presidents regarding the Middle East? I do.

The WMDs in Iraq is the big untold story. They did have them and we all saw thousands of big trucks taking Saddam's WMDs to the Baqaa Valley in Syria. But at that time the meme was anti-Bush and anti-Gulf war so the compliant media wouldn't touch that story because it supported Bush. And Bush was silent as he was about most things, he just never made any effort to defend himself. The question is why the secrecy? I'm thinking that Bush made some kind of a deal with Russia and/or Germany France and Holland where he would be silent about the WMDs or the source of the WMDs in return for something. Saddam didn't build those facilities to make WMDs France, Germany and Holland did. And he didn't have the expertise so Russia provided it for a price (a lot of Russian billionaires living in Miami and on yachts in the Mediterranean got rich peddling Russian technology). But still the question is why wouldn't someone expose what happened to Saddams WMDs???

We do remember the WMDs going to Syria. I have to admit I was skeptical @ the gas attack, but at this point in time I won't argue with American intell. There are eyes on Syria 24/7/365. Also, probable cause points to Assad because he's done it before multiple times, and any idiot (wait, there are plenty of idiots who don't realize what I'm going to say) knows that many of the worlds's armies are pointed at their own people.
When you say, "don't use WMDs," you have to back that up. I know that's a hard concept for many.
Now, let's get this war sewn up and concluded. ISIS, go to hell. Assad, your shiite is weak. Russia, go back to your corner. Turkey, figure out who your strong man is and quit playing the field. Close the Bos straights to Russian ships. Jordan and Lebanon: GRRRRRRRRRR...

Here's a pic that I saved of a convoy skedaddling from Iraq, back when all the arm-waving was going on about Saddam's WMDs:
