The Sacred Mantra of the Left:
The Leftie line goes:You are likely to hear that, daily, from one quarter or another. I even heard it from my own brother-in-law. Not surprising, since it matches the incessant drumbeat of the SLIMC1 , which owns the mainstream news media spin machine, and which owns the mainstream news media popularity poll machines.
But, of course, the history is there for the perusal of the truth-seeker. The Left would like you to forget the history, the negotiations, the resolutions, the other reasons, and perhaps most importantly, Bush's speeches to the UN and to the US regarding Iraq War II. But they just can't kill history. As a reminder, although the WMD question was the real biggee, here are some of the other reasons for Iraq War II:
You might not remember the Israeli raid that bombed an Iraqi nuclear power facility that was enriching uranium to make nuclear bombs with which to destroy Israel. The Left would like you to forget it; but it happened. Do you think Iraq's nuclear bomb ambitions were just a figment of Israel's imagination?
But the Leftie chant remains:
You might not remember all the thousands of Kurds who were gassed by Sadam in Northern Iraq, or the untold numbers of Iranians who were gassed during their war with Iraq. Do you think that gas was a figment of the imaginations of the Kurds and the Iranians?
And the Leftie chant remains:
Yet you will still hear lots of Lefties claiming that Iraq never had any WMD, Bush just single-handedly made it all up, see?
All those UN resolutions relating to Iraq's WMD programs were signed onto by what would later become the biggest detractors to the war and the strongest allies of Sadam, such as France, Germany and Russia. Indicating that even France, Germany and Russian must have believed that Iraq had WMD programs in progress. Today, they can deny it all they want to, but the history is still there.
Now, the UN and all the approving nations whose signatures are on the resolutions must have believed that Iraq had nuclear, chemical and biological WMD programs, or, why and how would all those resolutions ever have passed, and been communicated to Iraq by the UN? Or are they all just more figments of someone's imagination? We can look at UN resolutions 660, 661, 678, 686, 687, 688, 707, 715, 986, and 1284, all of which dealt with Iraq's WMD ambitions and ballistic missile and other delivery system programs. And, of course, there was resolution 1441, which supposedly had gums. I mean teeth. It threatened serious consequences, if you will remember. It demanded, rather testily, immediate, unconditional, and unrestricted access to inspectors to sites of their choosing, and stated that that the UN Security Council shall "remain seized of the matter". Yeah, right.
In a January 27, 2003 report to the U.N., chief inspector Hans Blix, while noting Iraqi cooperation with regards to prompt access to inspection sites, stated "...Iraq appears not to have come to a genuine acceptance, not even today, of the disarmament which was demanded of it and which it needs to carry out to win the confidence of the world and to live in peace." The reasons for this include a failure to account for quantities of VX nerve agent and anthrax and also the inability of the U.N. to interview Iraqi scientists outside the country.
Well, gee whizz and gosharooties, I wonder how UN and IAEA inspectors ever came to the conclusion that Iraq might have ever had any such things as nerve gas and anthrax? I thought Bush single-handedly made it all up.
Because, as we all know, the Leftie chant remains:
Lets look at what some prominent American Lefties said about it before they they all started chanting their Leftie-Whacko Bush Lied, People Died mantra.
But . . . but . . . but . . . , I though Bush single-handedly made it all up, out of nothing, and that nobody anywhere ever agreed with any of it.
I'm so confused.
And still, the Leftie chant remains:

Look, what can I say other than you have to be one of the most ignorant people with regards to the Iraq War. I am astounded that you assert that Saddam had links to Al Quada when a CIA report, given to the president, showed Saddam never talked to Al-Quada and warranted an international policy of diplomacy that ignored such extremist groups.
You continually quote Americans who clearly are lying, who assert that he had WMDs. If had read or watched or have spoken to any UN workers or read any of their reports you would know that the UN weapons inspectors went in with the highest most detailed information that could found internationally and from the Iraqi government that explained where weapons facilities could have been, where they were and what they did.
Yes Saddam committed acts of State Terrorism but why didn't anyone stop him before, because the US government didn't care it was more beneficial to have Saddam as a buffer against Iran and other haters of America.
I dare you I actually dare to write out what UN resolutions he broke and how.
Attempt to assassinate George Bush I???
Give me a break.
You do realize that the US funded his regime and its actions.
Even the Catholic Church declared the Invasion of Iraq in 2003 to be unacceptable in terms of necessity and reason. Every person where they are American or Australia or whatever, should be ashamed to even acknowledge the fact that this war took place. Even if you now agree with me, or even if you still don't, because its not some left wing propaganda its just, as you put it, the truth of history and you need to do some serious real research to recognize that instead of watching fox or some other narrow minded pro-war material. Even Wikipedia would be a good start.

Matt, Matt, Matt.
Not being American, not knowing American politics or American political big-shots, not knowing the hot political issues being discussed, you’ve missed the whole point of the article. All of the American politicos who were quoted testifying to Sadam’s WMDs and his association with Al Queda were the exact same people who would later deny the existence of Sadam’s WMDs and his association with Al Queda. Including even an American President. They all call themselves Liberals or “Moderates” or “Progressives” but I call them what they are – Marxists. As soon as they got out of power their story changed and they began to lie. They who chanted “Bush Lied, People Died” originated the policy of regime change in Iraq, because of WMD and Al Queda.
Not paying attention to American politics, you wouldn’t know that. But then, with the Lefties out of power and Bush in power, 9/11/2001 happened, and the regime change policy previously established by Clinton was in place.As I’ve said before, you show me a Marxist and I’ll show you an ends justify the means liar, which I now refer to as MEJTML14 .
Here are your “I dare you” URLs to some of the violated UN resolutions, for whatever any UN resolutions are ever worth. Paste them into your browser and print them out for yourself.
If you ever get the chance to visit America, where you can actually get to see a real doctor and receive real treatment in a timely manner, I strongly recommend pre-scheduling a rectal-craniotomy, to have your head surgically removed from your ass. It might do you a world of good.

The Purpose of this grouping of links is to provide a record of Mainstream Media lies, liars and how journalists are trained and paid by their employers to lie.
The Mainstream Media Pages
Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, every big name news anchor and reporter in American journalism lied, big, bold and proud, in full support of the Communist cause against America, all throughout the entire Vietnam War, and it has only gotten worse since then.
The Mainstream Media Pages: Soft Marxist Propaganda disguised as News. The Mainstream Media Pages show the linkage between Journalism, Politics and Marxism.
World War III is beginning, and the Big News is the "News"? The world is tumbling into global war, but Journalism is all atwitter about Brian Williams. Go figure.
The field of Journalism is infested with Professional Liars. Professional Liars predominate in the loftier positions of mainstream media.
How Cronkite and the SLIMC lost the Vietnam War for America. With the whole SLIMC overwhelmingly Marxist, the Reds couldn't possibly lose politically and publicly that which they couldn't possibly win militarily in the Vietnam war.
Old Traitors Never Die; They Don't Even Fade Away . . . Cronkite returns, to compare the new Iraq situation to his personal greatest achievement: the loss of the Vietnam War. Perhaps it's wishful thinking on his part.
Regarding the SLIMC Vs. the Truth Regarding the SLIMC (Secularist Liberal Intellectual Media Complex) and its treatment of the Truth
A closer look at the "Bush lied people died" Leftie flagrant categorical lie. If it is true that "Bush Lied, people died" then how does it follow that the UN, and all those countries, and all those Democrats, all said what Bush said, long before he ever said it?
Mainstream Media Lies and Liars just keep foaming up and building pressure. If you want to look at some really fascinating current socio-political phenomena, look at the current build-up of mainstream media lies and liars.
Right and Wrong, and what happens when we no longer recognize it. The difference between Right and Wrong is fixed forever; or, is it?
The Leftie-Liberal Beat Goes On: More anti-American lies reported as "News". The Democratic Party's yellow-bellied cut-and-runners would have you believe that United States Marines are wanton murderers of civilians.
Tet Lie Redux? "Cloning" the massive media lie about Vietnam's Tet Offensive. Tet Lie Redux: An epic, lopsided, monumental military victory was turned into a political defeat by our media's flagrant lies during the Vietnam War. Now, they're doing it again, this time in Iraq.
"The History Channel" repeats the flagrant categorical lies regarding Pius XII. Ho hum, heavy sigh, and here we go again. Once again, we see show-biz "Historians" bypassing actual historical documents in favor of purely anti-Catholic show-biz fictional works, for fun and profit.
What is, and why, this linkage between Fox News and the Playboy Empire? Should prominent men in the public eye work to strengthen our common Western moral ethos, or promote the new and more random, directionless, relativistic moral standard?
Of Illegal Aliens Vs the Berlin Wall, and Sovereignty Vs the Global Village. Marxism - or, if you will, Social Darwinism - presents the notion of Social Evolution, and predicts a final end of national sovereignty, & a perfect, government-less, Global Village; Heaven on Earth.
The greatest tool of the Leftist MSM is the tightly-controlled "opinion poll." Leftist "Spin" is glaringly obvious in mainstream news reporting today. But that Spin is greatly magnified and enhanced through the use of the carefully crafted public opinion poll.
On Evil and Nonsense: Look closely at Nonsense, and find Evil at its root. Evil and Nonsense: deny evil and you deny right vs. wrong; which is to deny common sense, which is to invoke nonsense.
