In the 1980s the argument for the build-up of nuclear warheads went that these weapons of mass destruction would serve as a deterrent and would never actually be used except in the case of an enemy invasion. This had a certain twisted logic; twisted since it was based on fear.
The Bush administration's justification for the invasion of Iraq lacks any logic whatsoever, and even runs counter to the twisted logic of the 1980s.
If the U.S. government honestly believed that Iraq under Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction it would never have dared to invade since this power-hungry madman would certainly have used them. This should prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that the war is a sham.
