#1 One small quibble: the US government is an administration, not a regime. Zimbabwe has a regime.
We may not like Champ (I sure don't) but he has an administration. Unless he decides to indulge his inner communist just after the election, of course...

#2 "I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them - whatever decisions they make - to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that,"
-Governor Bev Perdue (D)

#3 They're not professional enough to be an administration. They'd have to stop campaigning for five damn minutes to administrate anything.

#5 As somebody said, these WMD never existed but somebody is always acknowledged to have massive stocks on hand.
Problem with busting these things is that poison gas, and some biological agents, if they get loose in the attack, will kill a lot of folks who were not supposed to be killed. Some munitions are going to be prepared and if they're opened one way or another bad things will happen and bulk stocks will be on hand to fill more. Binary stocks might not be too dangerous if let out by explosions.
#6 What would happen if we secured the chemical weapons and found a large portion came from Iraq after our invasion nearly a decade ago?

#7 If you incinerate them with a tactical nuke, they tend not to be so dangerous.

#9 Golf Bravo. In that case, two possibilities. One is that they never see the light of day, and the other is that Bush is blamed for letting them get away. Obama and his fitty-twoers are capable of thinking both simultaneously.
