In addition, the U.S. invasion of nuke-free Iraq and its restraint with nuke-armed North Korea send a signal that other nations should secretly accelerate efforts to acquire nuclear weapons since they deter U.S. intervention. U.S. actions encourage the nuclear proliferation it is intended to prevent.
Every so often, FOXNEWS has a moment of libertarian zen, in another article, they also hilite the possible proliferation that has taken place of dual-use materials while Iraq has been under U.S. control:
U.N. inspectors have been blocked from returning to Iraq since the U.S.-led war in 2003 so they have been using satellite photos to see what happened to the sites that were subject to U.N. monitoring because their equipment had both civilian and military uses.
[… Acting chief weapons inspector Demetrius Perricos] said imagery analysts have identified 109 sites that have been emptied of equipment to varying degrees, up from 90 reported in March.
So, the war we were sold as neccessary in order to stop weapons of mass destruction (related program activities) from being given to terrorists has now resulted in the same equipment being carted off to God knows where now that the U.S. government has gained control of Iraq. Fucking genius.
Which all begs the question: When did FOXNEWS join the liberal media in hating that we invaded Iraq in order to promote freedom and democracy?
