The article that the writer refers to was released by ABC News. The letter writer doesnt mention the fact that the article does not say that Iraq possessed WMD when we invaded that country in 2003. The article doesnt state that what Iraq possessed in the early 90s were actual WMD. It speaks of plans, programs and documents, but not actual weapons.
The letter writer also seems to be certain that everyone whom the American military detains is, indeed, a terrorist. The fact that the writer refers to the terrorists as Iraqi terrorists makes his accusation even more interesting.
Its obvious that everyone held prisoner by the US military is not automatically guilty of supporting terrorism. The US has let hundreds of prisoners go free after holding them for months, even years at a time. Would the US ever set proven terrorists free?
However, heres the most important point, in my opinion.
The US and the USSR are the only nations which possess weapons of mass destruction. The two countries sign an agreement to be rid of WMD by 1967. A UN resolution is drawn up to support the agreement.
Each country agrees to allow UN inspectors to physically monitor its progress in destroying its WMD arsenal.
The USSR says that it suspects that America isnt complying with the agreement or the UN resolution, even though UN inspectors have found no weapons in the US.
The Soviets demand that America immediately comply with the treaty and resolution. The US insists it is complying and continues to allow inspections.
Suddenly, the Soviets announce to the world that America has 48 hours to install a government that can be trusted to comply with the UN resolution. The Soviets say they will invade the US if this change in government doesnt happen within that 48 hour time period.
In reality, the Soviets were right and America hadnt gotten rid of its weapons and now knows that the USSR is going to invade it.
The US quickly moves its WMD to Canada for the purpose of hiding it from the invading Soviets.
The Soviets attack, overpower America, overthrow the government, capture LBJ and occupy the former USA.
