. 1. "If we knew the truth about WMDs" Forget the WMD bullshit and accept the fact that the invasion was for oil, oil , oil. Rove is a political bottom-feeder trying to justify the crime of the century. He should explain why the USA has been unable to defeat a country smaller than Texas which had its armed forces decimated during the gulf war, sans an air force and monitored so tightly by no-fly zones that an oil-for-food program was set up so Iraq could purchase food and medicines for its people. The Bush/Cheney administration raped a sovereign nation to steal its natural resources and even the bottom-feeders are culpable. The "boot-on-the-neck" (surge), the wanton killing of woman and children "suspected" of insurgency (a term that Rumsfeld tried to change because it means: RISING IN REVOLT ) following an illegal invasion of their homeland (per Kofi Annan) are war crimes of varying descriptions: genocide, crimes against humanity and simply murder to sate greed. If the USA and the world at large can't address these crimes in a duly constitued court of law, it portends a dismal future for us all.
