Saddam did have WMMs

Is this insistence on the lack of Saddam Hussein's "WMDs" no justification to bust his chops and free an entire population from his rape, torture and murder just ingrained stupidity on the part of his enablers? This particular rant is seemingly endless - and certainly not true.
Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass murder; never mind the politically absurd faction that says "no WMDs." He had them, and he used them over and over: against the Iranians, against the Kurds, against the swamp Shia. But no nukes; therefore no WMDs, according to critics. Is murder to be equated with breaking the spokes out of bicycle wheels? Are people not more important than property? Call them WMMs.
