I know exactly what "pre-emptive" means. It has absolutely
nothing to do with the removal of Saddam.

Why do you insist on ignoring the reality of the Gulf War
Cease Fire Agreement?

Text of UN Resolution 687 (AKA - The Gulf War Cease Fire Agreement)

The Gulf War CEASE FIRE Agreement was a ZERO Tolerance
policy. That meant Saddam had to unconditionally;

1) Completely eliminate every aspect of his WMD PROGRAMS (not
just "stockpiles"). This included provisions for the complete
destruction of all offensive weapons. This had to be done in
a completely verifiable manner to UN Inspectors.

2) Saddam had to completely eliminate every tie to terrorists
(internal & external).

3) Saddam had to completely halt his crimes against humanity.

4) Saddam had to make full reparations to Kuwait, ET AL.

Now this was the short & sweet version. There were absolutely
no provisions that allowed any deviation from each explicit
requirement. It meant 100%, unconditional compliance. Every
single UN Resolution, including Resolution 1441 was
irrevocably tied to #687.

Saddam spent more than 12 years in utter defiance of every
one of the above requirements before Bush's so-called "rush
to war". You know, where "Bush lied & misled" America
into a "unilateral", "illegal" war to take over their oil for
his Big Oil cronies?
