If we fail to respond today, Saddam and all those who would follow in his footsteps will be emboldened tomorrow. Some day, some way, I guarantee you, he'll use the arsenal." </b> Yes it was the champion of the Democrats, Bill Clinton in February 1998. Why are some of his biggest supporters now taking George Bush to task for saying the same thing?

"<a href="http://www.nion.us/NION.HTM">We too watched with shock the horrific events of September 11, 2001. We too mourned the thousands of innocent dead and shook our heads at the terrible scenes of carnage -- even as we recalled similar scenes in Baghdad, Panama City, and, a generation ago, Vietnam.</a>" I can't say how much this sickens me These people should be ashamed.
