I put this in the pit because it seems the logical place. I will not be the one to commence hostilities here, though. It satisfy to no end if no one else did, as well.
I’ve noticed that Minty has been showing a cite wherein I state that as far as I’m concerned Bush has until Thanksgiving to produce answers on the WMD question. To be precise I believe actually said find the WMDs.
Since then others seem to have picked up the Thanksgiving cry.
There seems to be some kind of belief that if WMDs do not show up I will be eating crow or they will be vindicated, or I will have been proven wrong.
My stance has been and continues to be that we need to give the adminsitration six months or so from the end of the war to justify the WMD claim.
Conclusively making the judgement one way or the other before a reasonalbe time frame had occured and the case could be made seems to me a… umm… premature judgement.
Now I have believed and do believe that Bush will produce such evidence, but I have simply reserved final judgement pending more information.
It seems to me that this is pretty safe and conservative stance.
It certainly seems more conservative than those who have stated flatly that no WMDs exist for the last year or so.
So, I’m wondering what it is that some of you are expecting or thinking my Thanksgiving deadline means, and what it is that you are expecting from me on that day.
Perhaps I am mistaken and exhibiting wishful thinking when I recall what my stance was, and I actually said something completely different and those that assert no WMDs existed are entitled to some kind of vindication from me come Thanksgiving.
Please show it to me so I will be sure not to disapoint if nothing shows up. I would not wish to unfairly rob someone of their due satisfaction.
