The White House has confirmed that the search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has been given up by the United States.
Contradicting the main argument for a war that has cost the lives of more than 15,000 Iraqis and over 1000 US soldiers, the US’ top weapons inspector has declared that Iraq was free of WMDs before last year’s invasion.
So there you go, as everyone already knew, over 16,000 lost lives for nothing!
Oh of course, we’ll be hearing all that talk about the removal of Saddam Hussein from power being for the good of the whole world, but try telling that to the families of the people who died in this war!
Was the removal of one man worth all those lost lives?
Is Iraq any better now than when Saddam was in power?
Is the world any safer now than before the war?
I honestly don’t think so!
