Locked: Iraq WMD found finally declassified in Off Topic
Mr. Senior Defence Official thinks that these aren't the sort of weapons you went to war with Iraq over. Given that he's a senior defence official, I think he'd know.
But not both the hydrogen and atomic bomb. We used both.
As I understand it, the Chernobyl disaster [...] So you're both partially correct (if not on specifics). =)
If we found a nuclear bomb you'd have said "oh, the paint's chipped... the arming device was disabled... it doesn't count."
I'm saying that even if you disagree about the results of the war, that has no bearing on the decision to go to it in the first place.
3 people have died at Guantanimo. They committed suicide to become martyrs.
Remember, we're talking about people captured on the battlefield fighting the US. These aren't random innocents.
Anyway, they're still treated an order of magnitudes better than the approximately 20 soldiers
accused by a radical antiwar journalist of massacring civilians at Haditha and at a second such incedent. These troops, by all sides' admissions, followed standard operating procedure at Haditha - and they're jailed, in chains, in solitary confinement for it.
I think showing the Japanese a nuclear test, for example, would have been just as effective. Additionally, why nuke two cities, if you have to nuke them?
