And the WMD dumbassitude just rolls on ...

Another day, another Blogging Tory drinking the WMD Kool-Aid. Here, let me sum up the latest neo-con talking point to put the whole thing in perspective:

"It's about the WMDs, it's all about the WMDs, that's why we have to invade, that's the only justification for this war, Saddam has WMDs and .., OK, so maybe he didn't have WMDs but it was still worth it because ... um ... democracy and liberty and purple fingers and terrorists and ... hey! It's all about the WMDs after all!"

If it takes you more than one paragraph to encapsulate any right-wing talking point, you're doing something wrong.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS. See, the U.S. knew about those "newly-discovered" WMDs all along but they never let on at the time because (wait for it, wait for it, here it comes ...) they were trying to protect France.

That's right -- all that anti-French boycott hysteria and smarmy shit about "cheese-eating surrender monkeys" and "Freedom Fries?" All a clever ruse, just misdirection, as the Bush administration totally trashed their credibility just to make sure they didn't hurt France's feelings.

Are those Bushies fucking princes or what? Man, they'd downright take a bullet for you, wouldn't they? Well, OK, they'd let someone else take a bullet for you, but that's mostly the same thing, isn't it?

Actually, my point from the beginning has been that Hussein should have been taken out a decade ago - he was a menace to his own people, a destabilising influence in the whole region, and had no role to play in the civilized international community.

As for the bleating that these were old WMD's, and not the ones the US claimed were there . . . fine, ok, whatever. The UN resolutions the dim-witted Iraqi leader was violating were about ALL WMD's, not just new ones he had built. Since he was gassing Kurds in the north and committing horrendous atrocities on his own people in the south, the words "Good riddance to bad rubbish" seem to fit pretty well in this case.

But quick - I'm sure there's a name you can call me with some twist on neo-con, Bushie or Harpie.

Come on, you know you can do it.
