Saddam's behaviour justified war.

Reader comment on item: [Iraqi] WMD Lies

Submitted by Erik Driessens (Netherlands), Oct 7, 2003 at 15:27

If no WMD are found, let's say, for the sake of argument, because they never existed, the war would still be justified.
The armistice agreement of 1991 and several UN-resolutions obligated Saddam to give full disclosure. He never did.
It was up to Saddam, not President Bush, to choose between war and peace.
If a three year old keeps behaving badly, you don't give warning after warning. You punish the child. Saddam was up for a good spanking!

Best regards from the Netherlands
