MANKIND’S DEBT TO BUSH AND CHENEY FOR TOPPLING NUCLEAR TO BE SADDAM

 

If Bush and Cheney "lied" us into the Iraq War as Chris Matthews charges (which they did not) God bless them. Lies or no lies they saved the world from the horror of a nuclear armed Saddam.

It was anguishing for me last week watching crazy, cracked leftist Chris Matthews go berserk on former deputy director of the CIA Mike Morrel in trying to bully him into saying that Dick Cheney lied us into invading Iraq by claiming that Saddam Hussein had a nuclear bomb. From George Bush on down no one in the administration ever said, or intended to say, that Saddam was armed with nukes-with the exception of Cheney misspeaking on one occasion (which Matthews gleefully played for Morell out of context*) that "Saddam had a reconstituted nuclear bomb." What Cheney meant to say based on the faulty intel Mike Morell and the CIA provided to the administration was that "Saddam was reconstituting his nuclear weapons program" not that he had a "reconstituted nuclear bomb" when Saddam never had a nuke that could be reconstituted. 

*Later in that same interveiw with Tim Russert (3-16-2003) Cheney correcting himself said "it’s only a matter of time until he [Saddam] acquires nuclear weapons." And he was right.

CIA'S INTEL ON SADDAM NOT FAR WRONG

The CIA's intel in the early 2000s that Saddam was "reconstituting his nuclear weapons program," that put the fear of God in Bush (as it should have after 9/11), was wrong-but not far wrong. Saddam retained the services of his nuclear scientists and technicians keeping them on the government payroll while in possession of 550 metric tons of yellow cake uranium (see), with every intention of "reconstituting" his nuclear program when conditions warranted. In fact, we have it straight from the horse's mouth as Saddam himself came clean and admitted as much in 2004. For while a prisoner at Camp Cropper prison in Baghdad awaiting trial Saddam told George Piro, an FBI interrogator, that he was planning "to develop a nuclear capability in an incremental fashion (see)." In other words, Saddam would have eventually used his nuclear scientists and techs to turn his yellow cake uranium into fissile nuclear material for the bomb. And what prevented that frightful possibility thank God was George Bush's right decision to invade Iraq and topple Saddam-which his father should have done 12 years earlier.

 But there is more justifying Bush's war. Assuming for argument's sake that Bush chose not to use the authority granted him by Congress to invade Iraq and remove Saddam, and the dictator continuing in power went forward with his plans to reconstitute his nuclear weapons program by building a secret underground enrichment facility like Iran has at Fordow.  And assuming that the US or Israelis discovered the secret plant and destroyed it in air attacks-like Israel did to Saddam's Osirik plant in 1981, or mass murderer Assad's plant at Deir-ez-Zor, Syria in 2007 (see). Assuming  that America and Israel would have made it impossible for Saddam to build a nuclear arms facility what then?  Would that have finally discouraged the dictator and ended his quest for the bomb making an invasion unnecessary? The answer is NO.

With enemy Shia radical Iran next door enriching uranium for nuclear bomb making Saddam would never have-could not have-abandoned his nuclear ambitions. Giving up wasn't in Saddam's nature-12 years of defying the international community on practically everything proves as much. Unable to develop the bomb in Iraq Saddam would have no choice but to go offshore to build it. With his billions in petro dollars from rising oil prices Saddam would have went to the worst nuclear proliferator on the planet for the bomb: "Axis of Evil" ally North Korea. It would have been nothing for Saddam to dispatch his nuclear scientists and techs to the hard up, cash strapped Norks to lease one of their nuclear facilities to develop nuclear weapons (like Iran could do today); or to buy nukes off the shelf from the Norks like Saudi Arabia can do from Sunni ally Pakistan. Just like Saddam purchased undelivered (because of his imminent downfall) intermediary range ballistic missiles from the Norks before the war so could he have easily purchased North Korean made nukes once the hard up cash strapped Norks went nuclear. None of this should seem far-fetched to anyone. For no sooner did the Norks detonate their first nuclear device in 2006  than they were hard at work in Syria building an illegal nuke plant for Assad. 

George Bush and Dick Cheney deserve  credit and our lasting thanks for taking down Iraq's intransigent, unreformable,  power crazed  strong man who never relinquished his impossible dream of becoming the Joseph Stalin of the Middle East heading a unified, region-wide, nuclear armed pan-Arab state. Operation Iraqi Freedom saved us from a nuclear Saddam followed by a nuclear Uday, his sadistic insane murderous son.

Indeed, Republican presidential hopefuls instead of beating a retreat and joining the left in declaring the Iraq War a mistake should come out swinging and defend Bush and Cheney for saving mankind from the menace of a nuclear to be Saddam.

  1. C.Mathews said over and over that Bush claimed Iraq had a Atomic weapon, I would love to see him back that up with video… I will not hold my breath of course.

    1. Crazy Chris knew what Cheney meant when he misspoke. He just wanted to make a false issue to drive up ratings.

      1. Bingo!!! He saw the Russert interview in its entirety and what Cheney said about Saddam not have nukes and trying to acquire them.

  2. Apollo

    i join you in praising Bush and Cheney for the Iraq war. N. Korea entering the nuclear age in 2006 made it a war of necessity.

  3. On Fox Sunday Bob Woodward stated categorically that in his book “Plan of Attack” he investigated the charges of Bush lying about Saddam’s WMDs and couldn’t substantiate a single charge. It’s hateful Leftists like Matthews that lie and lie and lie about Bush and Cheney lying.

  4. Two months before the war then Senator John Kerry said about Saddam:

    “Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal,
    murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularlygrievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation … And now he is miscalculating America’s response to his continued deceit and hisconsistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … So the threat of SaddamHussein with weapons of mass destruction is real…”

    — Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

    The key words are “consistent grasp for wmds.” Not that he had them, but was grasping for [wanting to acquire] them. The only wmds the CIA thought Saddam was “grasping for” weren’t chemical and biological weapons which it was believed he had, but nuclear weapons.

    1. Ida, you cited what the current secretary of state said about Saddam. But look what his predecessor said on Oct 10, 2002:

      “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports
      show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological
      weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has
      also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda
      members … It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will
      continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, AND WILL KEEP TRYING TO DEVELOP NUCLEAR WEAPONS.”

      She was wrong about al Qaeda (based on bad intel). But right about Saddam’s relentless pursuit of nukes.

  5. Can any rational person make a case against North Korea declining an offer from Saddam to buy nukes from them?

  6. Apollo,
    You have much more intestinal fortitude than I have to have watched that weasel Chris Matthews. I couldn’t have done it.
    This was a great article, and I agree whole heartedly.
    Had Obama had as much courage in his whole body and Bush had in his finger, he would never have pulled out our troops and given Iraq to ISIS. In fact if Obama had been president then, Iraq would have a nuke, and no telling what would be happening.
    I remember the big to do about the yellow cake. Personally I gave a sigh of relief. Over all, Bush did a great job. I will say I don’t think much of his brother Jeb.
    Again, great article !! Thoroughly enjoyed.

    1. Thank you, my dear. He’s a lying volcanic leftist blowing his top pouring hot lava over everyone. As crazy as they come.

  7. Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! If it’s true that Bush and Cheney “lied” us into the Iraq War by falsifying intelligence (which they didn’t do) it was for the noble cause of stopping Saddam from becoming insane nuclear Hussein.

  8. MIke Morrell writes in his informative book “The Great War of Our Time”, pg 89-90:

    “The view that hard-liners in the Bush administration forced the intelligence community into its position on WMD is just flat wrong. No one pushed. The analysts were already there and they had been there for years, long before Bush came to office.”

    In other words, Bush was looking at the same flawed intel shown to Bill Clinton, and which Clinton used to pound Saddam with airstrikes in 1998 for allegedly hiding WMDS.

  9. I posted this before

    Democrat Quotes on Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction

    “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.”
    –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

    “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”
    –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

    “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.”
    –Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

    “He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.”
    –Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

    “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”
    Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
    — Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

    “Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.”
    — Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

    “There is no doubt that … Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.”
    Letter to President Bush, Signed by:
    — Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

    — Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

    “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.”
    — Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    “Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.”
    — Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.”
    — Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

    “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…”
    — Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

    “I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”
    — Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

    “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years … We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.”
    — Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

    “He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do”

    “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members … It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.”
    — Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    “We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction.”
    — Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

    “Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation … And now he is miscalculating America’s response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real…”
    — Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

  10. If Bush and Cheney were one tenth the liars lefties say they are they would have fabricated the finding of WMDs in Iraq.
