WMD?

It seems I forgot one yesterday.
There are and were Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq.

Sarin, Mustard Gas Discovered Separately in Iraq

Monday, May 17, 2004

BAGHDAD, Iraq — A roadside bomb containing sarin nerve agent recently exploded near a U.S. military convoy, the U.S. military said Monday.

Bush administration officials told Fox News that mustard gas was also recently discovered.

Two people were treated for "minor exposure" after the sarin incident but no serious injuries were reported. Soldiers transporting the shell for inspection suffered symptoms consistent with low-level chemical exposure, which is what led to the discovery, a U.S. official told Fox News.


Full Story

Now, why all the fuss about "WMD?" The weapons were there. We know that. We've found evidence of that. We know where they probably went ... but yet some people are still swayed by the left's rallying cry of "No WMD!" Don't let them get away with it. When you hear someone parroting that garbage: correct them, debate them, convince them.

Thanks.

Hey Eric,

The problem with debating these people is that they won't be convinced. You could escort them to Iraq and show it to them in person and they'll say it was a HALLIBURTON! plant...

Your head just explodes when you come across these folks. At least mine does...they call in to my show all the time. (Which reminds me, we're doing our "live" finale on DATV this Friday. The show is moving live production to MVCC in June. We're still going to have re-runs on DATV and we're hoping to work out some live shows with DATV via MVCC's interconnect feed.)

I agree that you have to debate these folks when you encounter them, I just don't think you should expect to hope for anything other than a draw. Even with Truth on your side.

Matt: I think you are absolutely correct when it comes to the left wingers and red diaper doper babies... they are too far gone to bother with.

The people I think we need to be looking at are the ones I call "The Sheep." There are millions of people out there who don't take any real time to think through an issue other than what they see on the news every night; and depending on their news source, that can cause a real truth deficit. The Sheep don’t pay attention to current events past the soundbite or the headline. They are easily herded one way and then the other by the quickly changing current of the news.

I don’t bother wasting my time with someone who has already determinedly made up their mind to be a Bush hater or (for whatever reason) a Kerry supporter. But we can spot The Sheep pretty easily, and with any luck and a little gentle correction, they can be put back on track.
