Finally one that isn’t completely lame…

  1. What was the last TV show you watched? John Doe
  2. What was the last thing you complained about? Probably the complete waste of a day at work today.
  3. Who was the last person you complimented and what did you say? Um, I said dinner was yummy, does that count?
  4. What was the last thing you threw away? The bottlecap to this cool Honey Brown beer.
  5. What was the last website you visited? Something to do with “how freaky are you”.

After discussions with a few people of varying political opinions and geopolitical experience, I think we’ve come up with a theory that fits the observed facts in Iraq vis a vis the search for weapons of mass destruction. First and foremost, let me say that evidence and proof are two vastly different things, with proof being hard to fake and evidence being pretty easy to muck up. For an example, see People v. Orenthal Simpson, 1994.

Let me lay out some things we have to take as givens in order to move forward:

  • Saddam is not an idiot. Anyone who can be a military and political strongman for over 20 years has a brain cell or two to rub together.
  • Nobody in their right mind thought the Iraqi military had a chance in hell of defeating the US military.
  • The US military has a great deal of evidence that Saddam had WMD and had plans to use them, including evidence that they were deployed in defense of Iraq this past month.
  • Nobody is sure where Saddam is.
  • The US has no actual verifiable proof of any current or recent WMD production or stockpiles. If they had proof, they’d be crowing from the rooftops.
  • Saddam had a lot of money and he may not have left it all for American soldiers to attempt to recreate bad movies with.

Now, with those items as a basis, we can make some interesting possibilities. The one that the current administration is betting on, because it won’t make them look stupid and/or hotheaded, is that there are chem and bio weapons and that some of the currently incarcerated Iraqi leadership coughs them up.

Here’s the possibility I came up with.
