There's one question that nobody in the "Mainstream Media" and Democratic Party have asked or will ever ask. What if the chemical weapons that killed scores of civilians in Syria's civil war last week originated in Iraq? Answer - A decade-long false narrative vilifying the War in Iraq and President Bush implodes for the Democrats.
The Mainstream Media and the Democrats have spent a decade lying about what prompted America's involvement in Iraq and what justified America's presence once Iraq was liberated by American forces. It was all about the WMD's or lack thereof...right? Wrong! It was about 12 years of Saddam Hussein defying international law as well as the terms of his surrender stemming from Desert Storm. It was about Hussein's defiance of 17 U.N. Resolutions demanding inspections of his weapons cache to make sure he was abiding by international law. It wasn't America's or the International Community's burden to prove that Hussein did have WMD's. It was his burden to prove that he didn't, which he failed to do - repeatedly.
The International Community, led by America, took action and Saddam Hussein is no longer in power. By the way, President Bush not only had a plethora of international support but he established a coalition of bi-partisan support here at home. President Bush followed the Constitution when sending our soldiers to war by getting approval from Congress, which is much more than his successor has ever been willing to do.
Fast-forward to today, bi-partisanship in America has been eviscerated by the vitriolic rhetoric spewed by the Democrats during President Bush's two terms in office and it's actually gotten worse under President Obama. The Mainstream Media and the Liberals spent 8 years pummeling their political rival (Bush) for following the Constitution and have spent the last 4 stroking their political messiah (Obama) for trashing it.
Since 2003, the Democrats have mischaracterized the War in Iraq as an "Illegal War", "War for Oil", "American Military Occupation, etc... All lies framed around the lack of WMD's recovered since the war commenced for the sole purpose of gaining a political advantage. Again, the war was never about finding WMD's, period.
The Mainstream Media and Liberal establishment in America can ill-afford to lose the frame-work of the false narrative that they have spent 10 years building regarding the lack of WMD's in Iraq. It would devastate the credibility of the entire Democratic Party if the WMD's in Syria were hidden there by Saddam Hussein.
