Cloud cuckoo land

The Iraq Survey Group reports that Saddam Hussein had no WMD in Iraq at the time of the US-led invasion last year. What is the official response from UK Government? Jack Straw says that Hussein was an even greater threat than first thought!

On the basis of what, exactly? The intention that he wanted to build WMD? Which he didn't have the capability (or resources) to do with UN Inspectors crawling around Iraq, and now that the backers who gave him all his WMD for the Iran-Iraq War (i.e. The UK and US) were now intent on beating him with a big stick?

Yes, we can invade your country if you have a passing thought that you'd like chemical or nuclear weapons.

You've got to give Orwell credit, though. He thought he was writing a political satire - it turns out he was writing a handbook for the new model of 21st Century Governance.
