    I was reading some older sites and I thought you might enjoy these:

    “To occupy Iraq would instantly shatter our coalition, turning the whole Arab world against us and make a broken tyrant into a latter-day hero ... assigning young soldiers to a fruitless hunt for a securely entrenched dictator and condemning them to fight in what would be an un-winnable urban guerilla war. It could only plunge that part of the world into even greater instability.”
    - George Bush (Senior), in A World Transformed, 1998

    “ He [Saddam] has not developed any significant capability with respect to weapons of mass destruction. He is unable to project conventional power against his neighbours.”
    - Colin Powell in February 2001

    “We are able to keep arms from him [Saddam]. His military forces have not been rebuilt.“
    - Condoleezza Rice in July 2001
