Politics: Why did Democrats support the War on Iraq and years later blame ONLY republicans for it?

One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.
–President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.
–President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.
–Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.
–Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.
Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
— Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.
-Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.
— Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

There is no doubt that … Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.
Letter to President Bush, Signed by:
— Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them.
— Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.
— Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.
— Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.
— Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…
— Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.
— Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years … We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.
— Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members … It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.
— Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

FYI: I’m Libertarian, never liked bush/obama/romney/or any NWO Globalist puppet!


They have a better game than the Republicans . They talk faster and lie better. But in my book they are the same.

The Democrats are the Thugs and the Republicans are the dumb inexperienced little brother learning the tricks of the trade. They all do the same things ……….with the exception of TED CRUZ AND RAND PAUL………………………..

I have asked this question many times, I have got several answers:
1) I’m racist (my personal favorite answer)
2) I’m lying no democrat voted for the Iraq invasion
3) The only reason why those Democrats made those statements is because Bush and Chaney lied to the american people and congress. And those senators took Cheney’s word as being true that Saddam had WMD’s. So they were only parroting what Cheney told them to say.

At least #3 sounds plausible….i guess…sorta…

Edit: LOOK AT BOPPED!!! HE ALMOST QUOTED WORD FOR WORD #3!!!! I am a liberal mind reader!

Because they decided that this was VietNam all over again, and wanted to get in front of the anti-war movement.

Note for Mr. Hamilton: I’ve noticed the same thing-It’s because &quot:Bush lied&quot:. They ignore that some of the quotes (including some mentioned here) date from the Clinton administration.

Damn space-time continuum…

Eisenhower warned us about the military-industrial complex.

&quot:In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.&quot:

&quot:We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.&quot:

Liberals have not concept of personal responsibility. Look at Obama the leader of the liberals…he knows nothing about everything. As Leno said ‘Obama has press conferences to find out what is going on.’

Perhaps they believed the lies generated by the Bush administration to start the war.

That’s the standard Lib BS. Blame someone else.

They claim everything good and nothing bad.

Mr. Hamilton is EXACTLY right.

Their actions and words are all just for political gain…they don’t have real beliefs.
