Bush the Lesser is having a hard time justifying a pre-emptive war to his critics at home and abroad, because UNMOVIC has discovered scant evidence that Saddam is hiding weapons of mass destruction. He keeps repeating that “We know he has them”, but in SDMB parlance, the rest of the world is crying “CITE!!!”.
Assuming that Bush is correct, and Saddam does have hidden caches of WMD’s, does anyone think he would hesitate use them against US forces if he thinks he is about to be captured or killed? Has Bush come to the same conclusion, and now feels he can go ahead with the invasion without world support, because he will be vindicated when thousands of American soldiers are killed by chemical, biological or nuclear weapons?
