oh, now i feel better...
Vice President Dick Cheney has assured us that there's "no doubt" that Iraq not only posesses weapons of mass destruction but is planning to use them against the US.
Ah, but listen to how Cheney defines weapons of mass destruction: "What he wants is time, and more time to husband his resources to invest in his ongoing chemical and biological weapons program, and to gain possession of nuclear weapons," (emphasis mine) Cheney said.
Of course, ever since Iraq booted international inspectors, it's been reasonable to assume that some of Iraq's chemical and possibly biological weapons capability remained intact. Notice how Cheney uses the presumption of chemical weapons to overshadow his own statement that Iraq doesn't have nuclear weapons. And as I've pointed out before, he presents the choice of either military action or doing nothing, a dichotomy I simply don't buy.
