That's not the Justification Bush and Blair Used

Reader comment on item: Iraq's Weapons & The Road to War

Your facts of the broken armistice may be correct. However, this is not the argument that Bush and Blair used to justify this war. They sold the war on the basis of WMD's that were in exisitence and that were able to be laucnhed "with 45 mins" notice.
