May 29th, 2003 Papers consider missing Iraq weapons

wmd_hardwareI was shocked by this article today. It said that there might be no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. I thought Americans went there for this single mission: to destroy the weapons and capture Saddam. We haven’t even found Saddam yet, and if there is no weapon existing, that’s waste of time and money.

The article said that “Saddam Hussein’s regime may have destroyed its weapons of mass destruction before the US-led invasion of Iraq.” It contrasts what the President Bush said and the US defense secretary said. They said that they know for sure that it exists.475_ap_saddam_061228

Daily Mail asked the prime minister: “No Saddam, no weapons, murderous anarchy in Baghdad- well, what WAS it all for?” That’s the exact question I want to ask. I was curious if all that amount of oil in Iraq had something to do with this war, but I wanted to trust President Bush. If it was just for oil, then that makes America too selfish.

I feel ashamed as an American now. I thought we would quickly help Iraqi people and get out, so that they can have their own free democratic country. The war has been going on for about two months now. People will get wary if the war doesn’t stop.

If there is really no weapon at all, we should concentrate on just finding Saddam, or we could just leave. I don’t think Saddam will once again try to gain power. I think he already faced the consequences of his actions now. He knows that America will attack and track him down again if he becomes a dictator.
