The following is an excerpt from the beginning of a column I’m currently working on: Okay, let’s talk “weapons of mass destruction.” They seem to be causing the darndest problems these days. We thought Iraq had them. And boy, look what happened (and is still happening) as a result. What’s more, Iraq, it turns out, didn’t even have weapons of mass destruction. Now it’s Iran (with North Korea is only a test launch away as well). We (read: U.S.) think its Iran’s intention to make nuclear bombs. They say they’re just interested in making nuclear energy. Who is to say for sure? I mean we relied on “intelligence” before, and it turned out not to be, well, so ‘intelligent’… One thing is for sure. The way I see it, you don’t need much intelligence to know: We (read: U.S.) have about 10,000 weapons of mass destruction aimed at countries all over the globe. “What if we let the weapons inspectors into Montana?” I posed to an ABC News correspondent in Findlay, Ohio, just before the Iraq War started… Question: Does anyone out there see a glaring irony in all this?
