  •  It was the French! (0+ / 0-)

    Seriously the French made a big deal about sending troops if any WMD were found. After that Bush couldn't afford to fake any. I had thought it strange how offensive Bush was to other nations we were supposedly trying to have as allies. It didn't become clear to me he was pissing them off on purpose until after victory had been declared.

    At that point it was to the victor goes the spoils. Even before 911 the Bush-Cheney cabal had already divided up Iraq's oil fields among future contractors. They weren't willing to share with the French. Their non-participation was the excuse needed to exclude them. I for one am grateful to the cheese-eating monkeys for keeping my country from faking WMD.
