Quotes From "Anti-War" Democrats

"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, though there is apparently no evidence of his involvement in the terrible events of September 11, 2001. 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. Should he succeed in that endeavor, he could alter the political and security landscape of the Middle East, which as we know all too well affects American security." -- Hillary Clinton, October 10, 2002

"The community of nations may see more and more of the very kind of threat Iraq poses now: a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction, ready to use them or provide them to terrorists. If we fail to respond today, Saddam and all those who would follow in his footsteps will be emboldened tomorrow." -- Bill Clinton in 1998

"Saddam Hussein's regime represents a grave threat to America and our allies, including our vital ally, Israel. For more than two decades, Saddam Hussein has sought weapons of mass destruction through every available means. We know that he has chemical and biological weapons. He has already used them against his neighbors and his own people, and is trying to build more. We know that he is doing everything he can to build nuclear weapons, and we know that each day he gets closer to achieving that goal." -- John Edwards, Oct 10, 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." -- John F. Kerry, Oct 2002

"Iraq does pose a serious threat to the stability of the Persian Gulf and we should organize an international coalition to eliminate his access to weapons of mass destruction. Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to completely deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power." -- Al Gore, 2002

If President Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, then so did all of these people. All the individuals quoted above are working very hard to undermine the war effort and force our troops into a full retreat from Iraq. Notice the insane hypocracy?

Damn pansy-ass liberal Democrats. Say one thing, when it makes them look good for votes, and it's what they thought the people needed to hear at the time... but then turn-coat when the going gets tough.

The democrats are simply using the war issue for their own political gain. Rather than defend America and support the war they feel they must oppose President Bush to win in 2008. I feel it goes much deeper than just opposing the war. The Democrats feel that they where cheated out of the White House in 2000. Then in 2004 they felt that the would easily defeat a President who they considered a bumbling idiot only to lose again. They still cant figure out how they lost to Bush twice and they are very bitter about these loses. So now they will oppose the President at any cost to get any kind of political victory over him that they can.
