Why the Duelfer Report’s Finding That Iraq Had No Weapons of Mass Destruction Provides Justification for Having Attacked Iraq in Order to Rid It of Weapons of Mass Destruction

Though all his weapons programs were
Abandoned and defunct for sure,
Saddam had weapons on his mind.
Since sanctions had him in a bind,
The man was forced to concentrate
On wily schemes to extricate
Himself from sanctions and postpone
His dreams of weapons all his own.
So sanctions couldn’t have worked, you see.
Not clear to you? It’s clear to me.
