RE: US now admits it used chemical weapons against Iraqis
To a certain extent i agree but i really think we had him cornered though, under our thumb if you will.
The problem, for me with the whole thing is that UN never authorized this invasion but folks who support it seem to use UN resolutions to justify the invasion.. hmmm? I bet you're probably against the UN in the first place.
The other thing is that we attacked once sovereign nation under the premise of WMDs and yellow cake. Humanitarian intervention wasn't part of the equation when US soldiers trespassed Iraqi soils; only some months later it was found to be the most convenient answer for the moment.
Even if it was for humanitarian reasons, blitzkrieging them just doesn't seem so humanitarian to me. Plus, US is not really leading the world in fighting human rights abuses either thus, making all this humanitarian talk suspect at best. http://www.hrw.org/doc/?t=usa
