Let's Look Back to why WE ALL Thought Iraq was a Threat!
Most people have long forgotten about the YEARS of deception and lies that Saddam Hussein and Babylon were getting away with long AFTER the Gulf War.
With all of the recent talk about what a big mistake the U.S. made by invading Iraq, let's take a look back into the past when BILL CLINTON had enough with the games and attacked Iraq in 1998.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- From the Oval Office, President Clinton told the nation Wednesday evening why he ordered new military strikes against Iraq.
The president said Iraq's refusal to cooperate with U.N. weapons inspectors presented a threat to the entire world.
"Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons," Clinton said.
Operation Desert Fox, a strong, sustained series of attacks, will be carried out over several days by U.S. and British forces, Clinton said.
"Earlier today I ordered America's armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces," Clinton said.
"Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors," said Clinton.
