Thompson Makes Fool of Himself; Makes GOPs Look Worse

Fred Thompson is going to give the Democrats endless material to work with before his joke of a campaign is over with. The wannabe Bush-puppet warmongering dictator candidate now says that he is "certain" Iraq had WMD before the invasion, then backtracks and says he was talking about the 1980's. If this weren't enough, he used this statement to justify the war in Iraq.

"We can't forget the fact that although at a particular point in time we never found any WMD down there, he clearly had had WMD. He clearly had had the beginnings of a nuclear program," Thompson told an audience of about 60 at a Newton cafe.

Thompson later said he was referring to Saddam's attack on Kurdish northern Iraq with banned weapons in the 1980s.

"He acknowledged, I think, in filings made by the United Nations that prior to the invasion - sometime prior to the invasion - that he had chemical and biological weapons," Thompson said in a Des Moines Register interview. "I mean he used chemical weapons on the Kurds."
"I think." "Sometime in..." This man is a joke; an utter disgrace of a presidential candidate. Neocons sure have a lot of nerve. Didn't the U.S. support Iraq during that war? Didn't the UK have a pretty sizable hand in allowing Saddam to acquire nuclear weapons, and most definitely in storing/producing them? And didn't our troops use chemical weapons numerous times on the Iraqi people and its soldiers during the invasion? He justifies going to war because Saddam used chemical weapons, yet our military and coalition forces did the same thing. How many innocent Iraqis have died? And this guy expects people to believe they care(d) about the Kurds? Four years of Fred Thompson will be four more years of Bush. His supporters should be beyond ashamed. Did the upcoming election really need another bogus candidate? This man will rue the day when he finally gets up in front of people in a REAL debate. There is of course one candidate that he doesn't want to mess with under any circumstances. Be afraid, Fred. At least one candidate believes in the truth.
